Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is almost completely clear, with a tinge of yellow-gold and no head whatsoever. I could read one of those optometrist's eye charts through this thing. Wow, very clean. Aromas of toasted grains, a slight buttery highlight, and some floral notes. Flavors of grain and cereal initially, with a slight roasting on the tail-end of the palate. Very light and clean in mouth, with a crisp, almost sharp finish. Roasty, slightly grainy aftertaste. This beer is clean and very well put together, but it just lacks a lot of substance. Interesting idea behind this line of brews, though.

12 oz bottle dated (bottled on?) Feb. 2014 served in a lager glass.
Has the pale appearance of a light lager.
The aroma is pleasant, mainly bready grains, and surprisingly strong,
The flavor does not quite keep up, being weaker and a little less appealing. Still, it is clean and bready.
O: OK but not worth seeking out.

A nice sized medium white head settles into a very thin lacing above a clear straw golden colored beer.
Light aroma of grains to sweet malt with a little bit of sourness also coming through, might be yeast or light hops.
A very light sweet grain malt taste with more sourness sneaking in there maybe also from sour mash grains or however they cook up this stuff.
This light bodied beer finishes with a light dry aftertaste.
A quite easy beer to forget, very similar to any number of light American lager beers.

Widmer Brothers makes a great hefeweizen. As far as Omission is concerned, they could do better. Its an incredibly light flavor, even for a lager and its a little bit in the sweet side of things. There's a hint of hoppiness to it though. It's almost as if they had an idea for a pale ale and decided to turn it into a lager. Would I order this again? Probably not. Would I say no to someone who would like to offer me one? Nope.
This beer is drinkable, but not impressive.

A - light, pale, yellow with a thin, short-lived, white head
S - sweet sorghum
T - sweet, bread, faint fruit, faint hops
M - light bodied, well carbonated, a bit thin
This has a lot of the signature gluten free characteristics. It's sweet and a bit fruity with a very little if any hop character. It's also a bit thin and very light bodied. I'll pass on this one in the future.

Poured into a pint glass. Clear, golden color with two fingers of head.
Faint smell of dry grain.
Mild bitter taste, slightly metallic, watery overall.
Crisp and light body, low to moderate carbonation.
For a light, gluten-free lager I applaud the result. By all appearances it is a superior product to most other light lagers, but it still doesn't make me want another one.

Poured a dull clear yellow with almost no head to speak off, just a light white ring.
The smell is a touch grassy with a bit of lemon, very light.
Has a light grainy flavor with a bit of grassy mildly bitter hop finish.
The mouthfeel is water thin with a smidge of carbonation.
They did a good job of making a gluten free version of the a typical bad American light beer, but otherwise nothing to see here.
