laiti (6567) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014
35,5 cl bottle @†home as ĒOmission Handcrafted LagerĒ, Bottled 06.11.2013
Aroma is somewhat hoppy and slightly fruity with some grainy malt. Flavour has grainy malt, some hops and citrus in the finish. Clean but boring.

No markings of "Gluten Free" on the bottle.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cereal), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of DMS and soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I really dreaded trying this because...well...for one, itís Widmer. Secondly, itís a gluten-free beer, and gluten-free beers almost always suck. Hard. But just as Redbridge is surprisingly one of the more passable GF examples (from an even worse brewery), this beer is better than the bulk of its brethren. Itís toasty, itís hoppy, itís flaws are minor, and itís...believe it or not...drinkable. In fact, if you didnít tell me it was GF, I probably wouldnít even know. No, itís not going to compete with good lagers out there...this is basically on the level of Full Sail Session Lager or something like that, but still...good grief, you can do a LOT, LOT worse in this field (Sprecher Shakparo, anyone???). If I had to go GF, I would have no problem having one of these once in awhile (when I wasnít drinking wine instead). The Omission website says these brews may contain gluten, since they *are* brewed with barley and such. So...ummm....hmmm.

pours a bright yellow gold .. . medium foam .. . borax is a soap, borat is a movie .. . has a solid crispness .. . not even taking into account the gluten free aspect, this is a very nice lager
.. . . you know, i donít take my cigar smoking career nearly as serious as i should.

larsga (6503) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2014
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 didnít leave much in this one, so must have omitted quite a lot. Boring (0.33l bottle, CC Mat, Lillehammer.)

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle:   Straw in color, rather clear, thin to moderate white head, sudsy, little lacing.   Macro beer aroma, corny, rice, the stuff I taste when I vomit out my nose.   Sweet grassy/grainy malt forward nose.   Very much a grassy/straw/hay like beer.   Its a clean beer alright, straw and hay/grass on the finish.   If I had a gluten issue, this would be a decent brew to drink, unoffensive, not too bold in any one direction.   However, if I had to drink this more than a few times I would be livid!

Geokkjer (6298) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with an off-white head. Aroma of hay, malt, some fruitiness and herbs. FLavor is sweet and fruity with some hay, malt and some bitterness. Medium to thin body, average carbonation.

b3shine (6246) - Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with thin white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells doughy and a little skunky. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright for a gluten-free lager.

blutt59 (6138) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle, clear gold with egg white foam, light musky hops aroma and flavors, some mild bitterness, malt liquor finish. Reminds me of a weak NB Shift

gunnar (6113) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle from HelgÝ Meny, Sandved. Pours clear straw coloured with a tiny white head. Aroma of sweet grainy malts. Taste is light sweet, very shy grassy hops, makes a short bitter finish.

Braudog (5965) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle. Super light yellow, fizzy. Virtually no aroma. Virtually no flavor either. But this at least is better than any other gluten free beer Iíve ever tried before ... itís not disgusting. Other gluten free beers tend to end up with some weird aftertaste. This doesnít have that, and might actually be an enjoyable alternative to anyone needing to avoid gluten. Itís inoffensive.
