Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is a slightly chill hazed caramel-copper coloring with a decent, frothy, light, white head that settles into a film coating along the surface and the sides of the glass. Aromas of rich and roasted caramel and toffee, with a spicy, resiny hops presence that cleans and balances. Flavors are just as balanced, with a caramel sweet initial offering that is quickly swept up by a peppered and resiny hops characteristic. Floral highlights give even more layering to the hops anchor of the palate, and there are citrus tones sprinkled amongst all of this, too. Very tasty and balanced. The aftertaste is light and smooth, with more of a malt presence than you get throughout the rest of the brew. Light, clean finish with a bitter, crisp ending. Very smooth, very tasty, and very easy to drink.

I'm no beer snob but I did grow up in WI and love Spotted Cow. That said, the gluten-free beers aren't in the same league. Still, Omission, if chilled in the freezer and served in an insulated mug that's also done some freezer time is more than passable. 'Cause sometimes, especially in TX, y'all just gotta have a cold beer.

Bottled June 1, 2012:

Into my nonic:

A: golden orange body leaves a one finger white head appears and lasts for about twenty seconds. No carbonation is seen rising. No lacing is left behind.

S: centers around yeasty bread and pine. Some other citrusy notes come out as the beer warms.

T: pine and hops up front giving a slight zesty appeal. Some floral citrusy tones come out stronger as the beer warms.

M: medium with nothing harsh on the tongue.

O: even though I bought this by accident, this isn't bad. If I ever had a problem with wheat, I wouldn't mind drinking this for the rest of my life.

Poured from a bottle into a Perfect Pint:

A=Honey colored, very slight cloudiness, and a two finger head that lasted well over a minute...I found it inviting.

S=Sweet, citrusy--lemon and orange--but not artificial...very appealing.

T=Definite sweet butter flavor, with citrus and herbal notes--particularly peach. A bit more hops than others also dominated the taste.

M=Above average body with modest carbonation...smoothness and creaminess offset by heavier body and herbal hop notes...not a session beer.

O=A decent beer that might pair well with barbecued meats or saltier foods...a bit too sweet for me to drink on a regular basis, but worth trying if you haven't found a gluten-free beer that suits your taste.
