Thought lagers were usually heavier, i like the lightness of this one. Has a bit of a citrus taste like a Blue Moon, but is crispier...pretty tasty for a gluten free beer. I poured a bottled beer into a chilled mug, it was refreshing. The after taste is so so, it's better on the lips.

Omission Gluten Free Lager has a thick, fizzy, white head, a somewhat hazy, extremely bubbly, yellow appearance, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, pungent, biscuity malt, and the flavor is of lemony & grassy hops, white bread, and just a bit of strange medicinal background that one gets with these gluten-free beers. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Omission Gluten Free Lager finishes dry and easy drinking. Overall, it is one of the nicer ones in this class.

Appearance: Slightly hazy medium golden body with a small and coarse off-white head, thick glass-coating lace, and moderate carbonation. There is a moderate amount of particulates

Aroma: Understated pale malt aroma, and some faint grassy hops.

Taste: Opens with a grainy, cereal-like malt flavor, soon followed by modest grassy and herbal hops. As the taste progresses, nothing much happens, the hops become slightly more aggressive, and the malt carries the load of the flavor, but neither are particularly noteworthy. Finishes with a mild lingering maltiness, and a slight hop presence which turns spicy late in the taste.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, somewhat thin, with little notable carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Nothing offensive, just not a lot here. I am thankful that I have no need of consuming gluten-free beers.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce longneck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice
