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.

There's a joke that says that gluten is another word for flavor and gluten free means it tastes bad. I actually had no idea this was gluten free and anticipated reviewing this highly despite the finding.

Very coppery in appearance the head was sort of fizzy and built well but soon collapsed with no lacing or so much as a bubble.

The scent was strong barley with some roasted grain and nuttiness. No real hop scent to speak of.

This has a deeply satisfying and robust barley, bran and nut flavor. Touches of roasted and toasted grains settle well with the pronounced barley flavor. There is a hint of hops at the very end that holds piney through the aftertaste and adds authenticity to this Pale Ale. The feel is robust and flavorful but also crisp and refreshing.

Poured from a bottle into a Perfect Pint:

A=Honey colored, very slight cloudiness, and a two finger head that lasted well over a minute...I found it inviting.

S=Sweet, citrusy--lemon and orange--but not artificial...very appealing.

T=Definite sweet butter flavor, with citrus and herbal notes--particularly peach. A bit more hops than others also dominated the taste.

M=Above average body with modest carbonation...smoothness and creaminess offset by heavier body and herbal hop notes...not a session beer.

O=A decent beer that might pair well with barbecued meats or saltier foods...a bit too sweet for me to drink on a regular basis, but worth trying if you haven't found a gluten-free beer that suits your taste.
