Poured a clean amber color with a very thin white soap ring head.

The nose has a light sweet caramel malt quality to it.

Wow is this bad, cloyingly sweet up front, no hop flavor other than some astringent bitterness in the finish. This beer has absolutely no middle, just badly sweet right to badly astringent. Just bad.

Watery and thin mouthfeel.

I'm sure its tough to make a good gluten free pale, but this is terrible, especially being a pale ale, if they used good hops of enough abundance they could mask the awful gluten free malt bill, but they did a poor job at both ends of the spectrum on this.

Worst thing I' ve ever tasted!!!!! Extremely bitter, strange aftertaste!
Among the gluten free beers out there Redbridge by Anheiser Busch is the closest thing to reel beer that I've tasted so far. And it is absolutely, completely gluten free. It was recommended to me and I was pleasantly surprised. I've had regular beer drinkers taste it and they always say "hmm, not bad"

So if you want gluten free don't waste your money on Omission. They can't even guarantee that it IS gluten free. Why even make it. It is worse than vomit aftertaste.

I'm down with a beer company removing gluten so that those who can't tolerate gluten can still drink beer if they want to. This beer TASTES like it's missing something though, and if you're looking for a gluten-free beer, I'd probably look elsewhere. This beer is lacking and bland and feels like it needs a lot of help.
