Good, great, solid lager. One of the most refreshing and well-rounded lagers I have had in a long time. Also one of the best, if not the best, gluten-free beer I have had.

Golden in color, clear with a thin white head Buttery lager aroma with nice hops backing. Nice easy drinking lager flavor this was a tasty brew and hard to find this brew had the malt removed. Interesting beer and tasty. This will do well.

Bottle, light amber pour, good carbonation, lasting head, aroma light malt aroma, little hop aroma. Flavor is light, malty, just enough hop bitterness to balance it out. Finishes light, not much flavor lingering, but more than some lagers I’ve had. I would describe this a very drinkable and refreshing, without being overly light. For a GF beer, and a class of beer that is not really well received these days, I think they did a good job with this. Like the very low alcohol level. Will likely drink this regularly.

Pours a light fizzy almost one finger head that fades fairly quickly over crystal clear watery honey golden color. The nose has a big crisp fruity lager, quite fruity but some typical lager and some over fruity, light malts. The taste has a light honey flavor, light golden toasty malt like profile witht a hint of sweetness. Light grassy hops round out the finish. Overall not bad, light overall but quite drinkable

12oz served in a Sam Adams perfect pint.
A - Dark golden body with a thin white head. Minimal lacing, poor retention.
S - Fruity grain, lemons, not much
T - Spicy hops wrap honey kissed grain, golden delicious apples, sweet but dries out on the finish. Strong yeast presence, finishes crisp and clean.
M - Medium full body, ample carbonation, clean finish.
This was a clean flavorful lager that I would totally rock if I had to drink gluten free. One of the best gluten free beers I’ve had to date.
I think people are forgetting the style of this beer. This beer kills most anything in it’s style category.

Thank you so much for a gluten-free beer that actually tastes like a real beer. I realized recently that I have slight issues with gluten, so if I can, I typically get something from Omission - this is a good lager.

Time for me to break out the familiar rant. Why do RateBeer users hate (seemingly) all lagers? Anyway, this pours a bright yellow with a bit of fizz to it. The nose isn’t powerful at all but this really tastes bright and clean. Not complex or multi-layered but also no weird off tastes and no corn pop flavors like you get with the BMC. A great summer at the pool sipper.

A friend gave this to me to try but I didn’t realize it was gluten free until now. Pours a crystal clear deep golden straw color with a smallish white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of spicy hops and sweet bready pilsner malt with a bit of a strange tartness that I can’t put my finger on. The flavor holds a bit of spicy noble hops, a bit of pilsner like malt flavor and again a strange tartness that I wasn’t expecting. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a watery spritz y mouthfeel. Decent beer, really nothing special but probably the best GF beer I’ve tried. I rated this a bit higher just for the gluten free factor, If I were gluten intolerant I would probably get used to this.

12 oz bottle at Widmer sponsored Celiac Awareness event & launch. Pours a basic lager color. Just a few bubbles streaming in the glass, but a bubbly foam head on top. A decent malt smell with no offsetting notes. Taste is similarly rounded and pretty malty. I’m catching a very slight edge of DMS, but just a slight one. Fuller even than most mass-marketed lagers. Maybe it could use a slightly hoppy bite at the end so we know we;ve had one.
