Misc.: Bottled on July 29, 2016

Had this after the Gellar’s left this and a few others at a recent birthday party for my daughter. Had the lager version of this awhile back and gave it a 3.35. Having less hope for this one, especially since it’s almost 20 months old.

Poured a copper amber clear color with three fingers of frothy off-white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass, looking like a snow globe. Outstanding uneven foamy lacing. World-class retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled lemon, floral, toasted caramel, leafy grass and some orange family flavors. Better than I thought with how old it was. (Smell - 3.50)

Less tasteful flavors on the taste than the smell. More malty than the nose. Got floral, caramel, hints of toffee, lemon, spoiled orange rind, thin woody pine needles and honey. (Taste - 2.75)

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Dry, citrusy finish. (Feel - 2.75)

Well it wasn’t the worst beer I’ve ever had. I will try to come back to it and have it fresher, but I certainly will no buy it. (Overall - 3.00)

Bottled 8/31/16 so this may be impacting the end result, also was bought as a single bottle/mix n match six pack. First try of a 'gluten-free' beer...although they have a disclaimer that goes into detail about how they can't truly state there is no gluten in the beer. Anyways....nice amber color that isn't hazy but has some light distortion to it. The first scent i detected was wheat followed by faint honey and barley. Taste and feel is more of a lager to me than pale ale with the exception of a mildly bitter hop finish. Decent body, nothing formidable but not thin either. All in all a slightly above average beer that I don't expect will leave a lasting impression but would certainly consider trying some of Omission's other styles.

Look- Dark golden to Amber. No head
Smell-Faint hops and citrus
Taste- Bland. Taste similar to nose. Quick faint taste of hops and citrus.
Feel- Light bodied.
Overall- Decent. Darker and stronger than a normal pale ale but not bad for a gluten free beer.

Not a very delightful brew, but it holds its own on the nose. It's slightly hoppy, with a muffled grapefruit and citrus but missing a lot of the malty, wheatier notes. Granted it's a gluten-free brew, I think the nose makes up for the drink's underwhelming first impression. It's in the nose that you get the warm, maltier taste which is completely missing from the sip. The citrus also brightens and shows form after the drink is gone.
