3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottled Jul 16th. Slight haze on the orange-amber body and a creamy disc of bubbles on top. Aroma of soapy orange zest, butterscotch and floral hop with a hint of resin. Taste is caramel, zesty orange and tangerine with a slight note of resin on the finish. Light body is soft and oily but finishes dryish. I would prefer less carbonation, but this is the best gluten-free beer of the handful I’ve tried.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
SLightly hazy copper color. 1.5 inch head holds at 1/4" + and has a dirty white color. Lacing is thin but abundant. Aroma is very nice with floral hoppiness and earthiness. It has a nice beer bite and tastes like good bitter hops with a cream ale backend. You can’t tell this beer is gluten free. It’s that good. To all you Widmer haters out there... grow up. Drifter, Dead Lift and now this... People with a gluten allergy can now enjoy a very hoppy pale ale that’s delicious... Truly amazing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 5/26/2015. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-medium pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Lightly drying on the finish from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good gluten reduced pale ale style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Omission Beer is Widmer Brothers gluten free line of brews and this is their 5.8% Pale Ale.
As you can see it is a vibrant orange gold with a soapy looking beige head. The taste is earthy grains that give it a somewhat coffee crisp character mixed in with fruity hops that lend it an almost fruit punch aroma.
Fairly full bodied with w raspy mouthfeel. The taste delivers those coffee wafer grain notes and a decent level of hoppiness but I'd call it an average beer but an above average gluten free one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Maltier than I prefer, the nose has more caramel and bread notes than hops, though I can get a bit of grass. Taste is a bit bitter, but has the taste of an amber ale.
