12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Yellow pour with a thin white head and very little retention. Aroma is faint yeast and lager-iness. Tastes are grain, lemon, floral and orange. Not a lot going on, but tasty enough.

Omission Gluten Free Lager has a thick, fizzy, white head, a somewhat hazy, extremely bubbly, yellow appearance, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, pungent, biscuity malt, and the flavor is of lemony & grassy hops, white bread, and just a bit of strange medicinal background that one gets with these gluten-free beers. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Omission Gluten Free Lager finishes dry and easy drinking. Overall, it is one of the nicer ones in this class. RJT

Transfer from BA review on 11-5-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance Ė Pours a light straw color with a very light haze. Upon pouring there is a rather big pure white head that fades over a moderate level of time to leave a decent level of lacing. Smell Ė The aroma is for the most part bready with a light citrus aroma present as well. Taste Ė The taste starts out of a bready nature with some lighter yeasty tastes. Mixed with these flavors are a light caramel sweetness. The sweetness fades fast with some citrus flavors coming to the flavor profile at the end. With the citrus and the bready base a rather crisp and more lemon flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the lighter side in terms of creaminess with the carbonation level being quite average. Overall Ė Nothing too really go out of the way for.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a semi - hazy yellow color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Lacing was all over the place. The smell had a sweet corn. The taste took that sweet corn and made it slightly crisp. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was pretty subdued. Overall not a bad premium lager. I could go at this again.

12 oz bottle from New Seasons - Pale yellow with minimum head. Looks like a Miller Lite. Not too much to the aroma. Tastes much fuller than it looks. Nice hop flavor on top of pale lager flavor. Pretty good.

Light and smooth, but somewhat tame and nondescript. Light malt, perhaps a hint of earthiness. Little hops, not much punch in the finish. Still, the best gluten free beer I have tried.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a small amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick finish.

12 ounce bottle from the 3300 S State Store. Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. A light nose of floral hops and biscuit. Pretty decent, clean, light fruit, big sweet grains. Totally different than other gluten free beers. Quite good in that sense.

Decent floral hop aroma coming off a clear pale yellow body with a soapy white head. The flavor is very light in the style of a light lager (Tsingtao came to mind), but fresher and crisper than most. Thereís a very light sweetness and maltiness, and some floral hop bitterness, but all is light here. The absolute most impressive thing about this beer is that it tastes like real beer, not like the usual sorghum-based gluten-free stuff. My brother has Celiac disease and he says thereís some controversy about how gluten-free this actually is, but Iím hoping that it is and that he can drink this and enjoy real beer again.

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.
