12oz bottle poured into Duvel tulip. JUL2018 printed on bottom right corner of label. $1.75 for a single.

Appearance - Clear medium amber-brown body with decent carbonation. Pours a very large seafoamy eggshell white head with moderate-low retention and patchy but sticky lacing. 4

Smell - Roasted malt with faint floral undertones. Overripe banana. 4

Taste - Prominent nut and malt. Noticeable alcohol. And it's all downhill from here. Leaves a very unpleasant burned toast aftertaste that you notice even in the body. And it only gets worse as you keep drinking. 1.25

Mouthfeel - Creamy but has a good kick. But leaves the mouth feeling a bit sticky and has a slightly off, astringent finish that builds up. Not very pleasant. 1.5

Overall - This is the 3rd Omission beer I've rated. The other two were surprisingly enjoyable, this one is very subpar both by comparison to those and even as a beer in general. I wonder if that date printed on the label is the born on date, or the best by date. Because if it's 2 months overdue, that would explain the unpleasantness. 1.5

Tastes like it was brewed with dirty pennies and blood. For me, the smell was only slightly metallic, but the taste was much more extreme. I've been a beer aficionado and have referred to beer advocate for guidance for years, but tasting this beer is what drove me to get a username because I just can't with this one. The Omission IPA, though, I really like! Distributor was out of IPA this time and I figured they couldn't go wrong with the pale ale, but I was wrong. Not for me and never again.

Omission Brewing Company "Omission Pale Ale"
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle, coded "11:55 03 MAY1018" and sampled on JUL3118
$2 @ Giant, Havertown, PA

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's poured a crystal clear amber body beneath a finger-thick head of off-white foam that seems to be steadily dropping. ... ... ... I've waited just a few moments now and the head has dropped to a collar, not a good start. The aroma is grainy, and perhaps a bit caramelish and toasty. Did the label not say "hoppy"? Yes it did, perhaps the hops are in the flavor. Not that there aren't any hops in the aroma, but they're only there in the background, mainly floral and subtly fruity. On to the flavor... it's as the aroma indicates, grainy, lightly caramelish, and subtly toasty. It reminds me more of a Vienna lager than a pale ale, but that's kind of nit-picking on the malt, it still works as a pale ale. There is something odd about the malt though that I can't describe as I'm not familiar with what it is. The closest I can say is that it tastes kind of like a beer brewed with sorghum although I didn't think that this was, I'm just throwing that out there as the only connection I can make. There are more hops in the flavor, citrusy (lemon and orange), piney, floral and grassy. It's fairly bitter, and that comes out in the dry finish with some residual malt fading to leave some lingering "orange marmalade" and pine. In the mouth it's medium-light in body and gently effervescent and crisp. It has some very nice fine bubbles and I'm surprised the head didn't hold up better, and I should also note that the lacing is pretty limited and poor. I'm guessing however that both head retention and lacing have something to do with gluten so maybe that's why. Overall it's decent enough.

I have no idea what people are reviewing. Bought a fresh 6 pack
Its a Pale Ale. Its not an IPA.
Color Golden Cooper - Crystal clear no sign of any cloudiness
Pours nice head that fades too lace. Lots of small long lasting bubbles - IE exactly too style
tastes - citrus ( Citra hops) with sweat amber. I do detect a slight metallic caramel finish not overly hopped but in style
feel This ale feels like its a 4/5% not a 5.8 - maybe it the gluten free proccess
Overall a better than expected Gluten free Pale ale to style
would buy again
