I picked this up at Wegmans enjoyed chilled in a goblet from the 12oz

The color is deep copper with thin white cap and tight bead pattern, there is a light hazed appearance. The smell is slightly piney with fruity ester and mild spiced yeast aroma. The feel is a great mix of bitter and mildly sweet with light dry finish with a moderatly high carbonation level.

The taste is good with a nice pine flavor up front from the hops with a subtle dried fruit presence and smidgen of citrus rind with a lingering bitter quality after the swallow. The hops contribute an herbal element in the finish. Overall I found this to be a drinkable pale, drinks like a lighter beer than it is and doesn't taste like other Gluten Free beers I have experienced I would certainly buy this again. I don't know why I passed it by before.

Thanks to my buddy Mike for this!

Appearance. Pours a clear gold amber with a finger of off white head that fades pretty fast.

Smell. Sweet malts, toffee, orange juice.

Taste. Oranges, sweet malts, some earthy hops and toffee.

Mouthfeel. Below medium body. below medium carbonation.

Overall. Not a great pale ale but pretty decent as a gluten free beer. A good choice if you have the rich white person disease.

Copper-red and translucent visually, this is a bit darker than your average pale ale. Seeing as this beer is also sweeter than I would expect; I'm going to go ahead and say that this probably has a higher portion rich and sweet specialty malts in the mash bill than your common pale ale. Coming in at 5.8% abv this alcohol content is good for a session beer. Cascade and Citra hops are present adding a nice piny and fruity flavor to beer but they could be more pronounced. I would also like more bitterness in this one. All and all its a good pale ale but not a great one. It deviates a bit from the style. Good beer nonetheless.

Bought at Specs in Austin. Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

A - Crystal clear orange color. Two fingers of light head that stick around as long as the nucleation point would allow. Decent lacing.

S - Floral hops, although they're pretty weak. I can't put my finger on the malts.

T/M - Tastes similar to an APA, but with just a little something missing (or dare I say, Omitted?).

O - Not bad for gluten free, but I would never search this out.

Omission Gluten-Free Pale Ale has a medium, frothy, off-white head, a mostly clear, amber appearance, with some streaming bubbles, descending little chunks, and decent lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, hoppy, rich barley and bread crust, and the taste is of those elements, with pronounced bitterness and an underlying "health-food store" flavor note. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and a bit chewy, and Omission Gluten-Free Pale Ale finishes wet, rich, and chewy. Overall, this is very good and interesting.
