For the last year I've been gluten-free - and my favorites are Widmer Omission - Lager, IPA & Ale. The least bitter (and least powerful) of the three is the gold label Lager at 4.6%, with a smooth, light taste.

As most say, not bad for a gluten-free beer - I like beer but not the beer belly and hope Omission will stay available at my local - Rovers in Austin.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: crisp golden liquid. Forms a nice frothy white head. Appealing to the eye

Smell: Nothing too special. Citrus undertone

Taste: rather bland. Slight hop presence but overall pretty light and smooth. Easy drinking.

Mouth feel: nothing overbearing, smooth and dry. Does not stick on palate

Overall: decent. Experience not outstanding but not bad. Niche product that is drinkable and bodes well given gluten-free.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured a hazy straw hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a faint noble hop.

The taste was well balanced with a light fermentable, herbal noble hop, lemon and green apple.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a pretty decent gluten free beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured in a Sam Adams perfect pint.

A - Pale, straw color. Slightly hazy. 2 fingers of head that settles quick in to a fine ring. No lacing.

S - Cereal grains, grass, and lemon.

T/M - Light and crisp. Lots of lemon grass. Mild, citrusy hop finish.

O - This is not half bad for the style. Gluten or not, I'd put this neck above the big three any day.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

This pours a clear and bright straw yellow with a 1 finger head of foam.

It smells typical for the style. Sweet malt, grain, a hint of some lemon, and now some bready notes.

More bread in the taste than the nose, the sweetness is somewhat subdued and there's only a hint of the lemon.

Good mouthfeel but overall, this is another very ordinary brew whose subtle-ish flavours don't do anything for my taste buds. It's about as exciting as the label on the bottle.
