A: The beer is hazy light amber in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of caramel malts are present in the nose along with faint hints of floral hops.
T: Like the smell, the taste has some flavors of caramel malts and the hops mostly contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Out of all of the gluten-free beers that I've tried so far, the Omission beers rank at the top because they don't have "off" flavors since they were brewed like a normal beer but the gluten was removed afterwards.

330 ml bottle, served cold into a pint glass while out for dinner in Buffalo, NY.

Appearance - mostly coppery in color, few visible bubbles. A half finger of white head that leaves behind a nice ring of lacing.

Smell - some citrusy hops, in particular a leafy quality. Otherwise aromas are subdued.

Taste - has the leafy hop quality again, but it seems to fall a bit flat for me. Mild malt flavour blended in.

Mouthfeel - smooth, but a bit flat and lacking carbonation.

Overall- not a bad APA , especially for a gluten- free beer. It's a bit lacking as far as APAs go but still worth a try especially for those with gluten sensitivities.

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