(12 oz can, updated branding, PKGD ON DEC2711; purchased single off shelf... poured into a 14 oz mug)

L: clear, pale amber liquid; tight, bubbly, subtly off-white foam pad which holds pretty steady... head continues to hold longer than expected, but it doesn't lace much

S: pleasant orange-rind-kissed, Kolsch(?)-like, lightly-honeyed Cream of Wheat grainy foundation... maybe a hint of floral hops... overall light-moderate intensity

T: bit of a static mess up front, but it soon gives way to a golden grassy grain and eventually a flash of pithy citrus peel in the finish... sip after sip, extra dry with a flower-stem bitterness and a very delicate, underlying (sunflower) seed-butter accent to its near character-less, two-dimensional malt base... gets slightly toastier as it goes

F: light, buoyant, quick, lead by a softly foamy airiness... stuns the palate roof to a moderate degree... almost a touch of toasty warmth hovering above the tongue... wish it had a bit more oily caress to it

O: not quite Kolsch-like or Cream ale-ian... ends up being a mellow, basic blonde... really got to be patient with this one, savor each sip to collect as much flavor info as possible... this was work (1954)

Omission Balanced Brewing "Omission Ultimate Light Golden Ale"
12 fl. oz. can coded "07:19 01 PKGD ON DEC2721"
$2.29 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: The label lists this beer as having 99 calories and 3 carbs which puts it pretty high up there in terms of being a light beer. Michelob Ultra has 95 calories and 2 grams of carbs but Bud Light has 110 calories and 6.6 grams of carbs. This is also "gluten reduced" but to be honest there's not really that much gluten in most regular beers anyway, and even less in light beers. As an example Budweiser, Becks, Bitburger, San Miguel, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Miller High Life, Cantillon Gueuze, La Chouffe Blonde, Duvel, Löwenbräu Oktoberfestbier and Newcastle Brown Ale and many others all have less than 20 parts per million of gluten, and according to the Codex Alimentarius products with less than 20 parts per million (ppm), equal 20 mg per kg, are considered "gluten free". I should point out, however, that even "gluten free" can be too much for some people. It's mostly clear and golden in color beneath a short head of bright white foam. The aroma is grainy and floral. The flavor follows with some additional light fruitiness. It's lightly sweetish and equally light in bitterness giving it a very nice balance. It finishes with a drop of residual sweeetness that fades to leave some mild floral and subtly herbal hop notes behind. In the mouth it's light-medium in body and gently crisp-then-smooth. The head retention and lacing aren't great but that's to be expected of a light beer. All in all I enjoyed it and I'd drink this over a Michelob Ultra or Bud Light Next any day.

12oz can lashed into a tall 14oz glass.
L: Pours crystal clear rich yellow/gold with large carbonation bubbles and a 1.5 inch fizzy off-white head that quickly recedes to fizzy random skin. Almost no lacing.
S: Has a metallic smell with hops, grains, field grass and very light dry bread or crackery malt.
T: Malty (interestingly), cracker, grassy, lime, corn and a lightly bitter clean finish that lingers. It is gently zesty.
F: Crisp, clean and slippery medium-bodied mouthfeel with a fast, clean finish and a medium linger.
O: A fairly decent tasting and easy feeling gluten reduced low cal, low carb light golden ale that is quenching & drinks very fast. The sensations of malts & hops are nicely balanced and it is very good in it's style.

OK after being diagnosed with diabetes time to find a low carb beer.
This is one attempt.
12 oz single bottle 3 g carbs. 99 calories
Pours a clear bright golden coloured body with a small clingy off white head.
Aroma of cardboard? hops and slight caramel.
Taste..grass, cardboard , light lime and water.
Mouth feel is thin but not over carbonated. Dryish finish . OK
Nothing too it. Inoffensive in extreme. Might be the ale version of Michelob Ultra.
I could do this in the summer.

I bought a 12 pack and had three flat beers. For the first time in my life, I'm going to throw out the remaining beer. What little carbonation it had looked artificial and was short-lived. Might have been a bad batch?

DATE: April 4, 2020... OCCASION: watching Schitt$ Creek after solving some protracted bicycle crises... GLASSWARE: Rare Vos pint... time for another gluten-free offering, this one clocking in at a wonderfully 99 calories... pours a light golden body rife with tiny white bubbles... its head dwindles from a finger to a thin smear of white haze... looks like a clean, crisp delivery... rusty metallic Saaz, light orange and lemon, hay and grass, blunted bread malts, grains and oats... the mouthfeel is light, cleansing, bubbly and transparent at the finish--definitely light and refreshing, with a hint of texture... give credit here--this passes as a blonde ale as it sips... the taste is equally light, with hay, lemon, orange, grass, salty cracker, and light spice... this satisfies enough to be a go-to at backyard parties or multi-beer nights... Ultimate? not so sure of that bravado, but it quenches thirst and can be appreciated as a wine spritzer or hard seltzer, with a tinge of malt presence...

Rating this beer within the context of a 99 calorie "light" beer, it is absolutely fantastic. Grab it for the right occasion!
