3.76/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours a clear amber with a medium white head, solid head retention, spotty lace.

S: Tropical fruits (passion and pineapple), with some grassiness.

T: Bright fruit flavour, stone fruit with a hint of lime, some orange peel.

M: Crisp carbonation, lightly frothy, light-bodied, fairly robust for a gluten-free beer.

O: I didn't know it was gluten free when I bought it, and in the taste you'd never know. Just a solid APA, not as good as Drifter, but pretty good, up there with Mirror Pond, in fact quite similar.

Intrigued by their attempt, apparently a new process allows for a more authentic profile.

Pours orange amber with an etched surface. Nice nose up front, crisp and hoppy with apple and grapefruit. Some tea and malty undertones. Flavor is malty (not expected) and sweet with herbal and bitter hop components. I'm down with the flavor here, really approachable! Medium bodied with hi carb and a semi dry finish. Great quality, surprised, gonna have to try the lager.

I'm happy to see a gluten free option sans shitty flavor. Well considered and thoughtfully crafted. I expect this to be a limited addition to the line in lieu of the gluten free craze sweeping the US right now, but it's a welcome one in my opinion. A great option for the celiac's right here folks.

3.3/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: (3.5)

- This has a rather dark amber appearance, kind of like their Drifter. A little darker than I like a pale to be. It's rather clear, and had about a finger of spotty foamy head that settles to a thin spotty layer with light chunky lace about the glass.

Smell: (3.5)

- The smell is quite simple. Light sweet caramel malt with a light zesty hop aroma. Little floral, but mainly some pine, and an earthy quality. Little biscuit and bread. Smells balanced at least.

Taste: (3.0)

- Pretty light caramel flavor, and just lightly sweet. Certainly some big bready notes, and rather light on the hops. The hops up front have a little floral and grassy quality, and finishes with a bitter grassy touch with a zingy spice. Not bad, but pretty average. Compared to most gluten-free beers, I am sure this just smashes them.It has a certain tart flare to it.

Mouth Feel: (3.5)

- Pretty medium bodied and a touch drying. Well carbonated, and pretty basic.

Overall: (3.5)

- This is solid, and quite balanced.. and yes, it is missing something. Gluten. I am simply just judging the beer for what it is compared to all other beers, and both Omission beers are the only gluten-free beers I have had. I would be afraid to try any of the others on the market. It's a solid drinker, and I would drink one if it was handed to me. Sure to be a true delight for one whom can't enjoy a regular beer.
