2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Small white head. Clear yellow body with light carbonation. Light fruity sugary aroma with floral notes. Dry floral resiny taste with fruity grainy notes. Thin-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry grainy mealy aftertaste with wooden notes. Well, they didn’t leave much in this one, so must have omitted quite a lot. Boring (0.33l bottle, CC Mat, Lillehammer.)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 330ml (K-Kamppi).
As "Omission handcrafted lager" by Craft Brew Alliance without claim of gluten free. Clear golden color, small white head. Metallic grainy aroma. Light bodied. Malty, a bit grainy and with light rubbery notes. Also some grassy hoppyness. If this is gluten free, it is ok in that category. Otherwise quite standard and bulkish.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a pale golden color with a white head. Aroma is pretty bland with earthy tones and not much else. Not much to the flavor either. I get some grass tones and that’s the only flavor that I can find. Very watery and just not good.
