Gluten free not a clue but a pale lets give it a whirl. Pours to an orange color with an off white head that recedes slowly and leaves a thick lacing. Smell is very sweet almost oktoberfest-like with a tarty background. On the taste this brew has a sweet starter with a bit of hopping evident in the middle slightly bitter but not not a real bite then finishes with a fading flat bitterness, we'll balanced with a malty base. A very malty pale ale, not much bitter hopping. Not really on for the style but a good drinking brew.

12 oz.

Pours a mostly clear amber color, half inch of fine white head retains as a film.

Smells of caramel and sweet biscuit malts. The sweetness is like agave. Some mild fruity hoppiness at the end.

Tastes of sweet malt, again similar to agave, with some biscuity richness and a very mild hop bitterness.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the tongue.

I haven't had many, but this is the best gluten-free beer I've had so far. It's very drinkable and tastes pretty good. It still has a bit of that non-glutanized wang to it, but it works overall and I'd even choose to drink it.

This Beer is the greatest Gluten-free beer on the market. I couldn't believe that they could make a gluten free beer this good. I have Celiacs disease and was so excited when I first had this beer. And then I had two, then three, then four. And then my stomach twisted into a giant knot and my brain became super cloudy and my eyes super tired. I had somehow ingested gluten. This beer is NOT Gluten Free! It has very low gluten, but it still has gluten. They brew this beer with gluten ingredients and then "eat" the gluten out with an enzyme, but it does not get it all.
IF you have Celiacs disease do not drink this beer. Even if you only have one and don't feel the affects of the gluten it destroys your intestines and your cancer rate skyrockets.
So, Shame on you Omission for hiding this fact. I'm sure you did your research on Celiac ridden people and if you didn't, shame on you again.

To good to be true..
