3.3/5 rDev -2.4%
Poured into a balloon glass.
Look: Very clear copper body. A light cream colored head, decent splotches of lacing.
Aroma: Very subdued, but a nice blend of caramel, fruitiness, and hops.
Taste: Like the aroma, well balanced with malty sweetness, some apple and cherry notes, and finally hops in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.
Overall: Well balanced and tasty, I did not mind having a sixer.

(bottling date: Jun 10 2014 - poured into a tulip pint)
A: fairly clear, deep amber-hued liquid... perhaps a slight hop haze... rocky, frothy, creme-colored head... structure indicative hop high- or dry-hopping foremost
S: piney with round, fruity malts... toasty grain and overripe yellow grapefruit... overall, has the smell of a NW-hoppy English-style ale... mild spicy-floral highlights... comes across as a small brewery's flagship pale... touch of dirty sock long after
T: about what you'd expect, but cleaner... almost a spiced, honey graham aftertaste... little alcohol... up front, bright and inviting mellow hop bitterness with a earthy-grassy and citrus peel tone... the malt carries a touch of caramel and just hangs in the middle of the palate - the flavors don't move far past that point, as the finish just disappears before the back of the tongue
M: big and round, cottony hop resins... soft dancing of bubbles across the palate... muffled hop heat lingers in the back of the roof of the mouth... super dry, but notably cushiony
O: another pleasant surprise with these Omission beers (only have the IPA left to try)... I don't see why they can't craft a creative beer recipe and apply their tricks to that - the cost of lowering the gluten can't be that much... don't get me wrong, these beers have been solid, but pretty safe and textbook in their approach to taste... very 'sessionable' altogether, and that's likely the main goal here
