I was not as impressed with their Pale Ale as their Lager. Poured a 1/8 inch off-white head which faded fast. Hazy iced tea color with a touch of amber and no effervescence left in the body. Very little smell at all, even as it warmed. Taste is pretty bland and though it has hops it's nowhere close to the hops in an average Pale Ale. Only a mild brief hop finish. Pretty darn boring to me.

bottle into a pint glass

clear copper, almost amber, color with a nice tan head and great lacing

smell is very faint. maybe a touch of molasses or brown sugar

taste is synthetic sweetness and nutty. a bit of bitterness in the end, not very well balanced

mouthfeel is creamy, almost like a nitro

not a bad beer, but I wouldn't go to this for a pale ale-it reminded me of an amber lager

12oz bottle poured into IPA glass.

Rich amber color, quarter finger of good looking white head. Moderate lacing.

Hoppy, bits of citrus or fruit flavor, with a slightly off, metallic aftertaste. Well carbonated with a good texture and balance.

Wouldn't know it was gluten free or otherwise restricted on ingredients without being told. Didn't know when buying, it's not on the bottle.

Overall it's an above average apa, which is an accomplishment given the gluten-free restriction. It looks much better than it tastes, unfortunately.

A decent Gluten-Free Pale Ale. Certainly drinkable, but the Omission Lager is preferable.
