To date I have sampled two of Omissions Low Gluten Beer offerings, the Pale Ale and the Lager. Omission makes a very nice low gluten (free) beer but if you are Celiac, sample before drinking just to make sure that this de-glutenized beer is okay for your system!
Here is what I found in my beer review of the Low Gluten (Free) Pale Ale Beer by Omission.
The beer poured with a large off white persistent head and minimal lacing. There was not a lot of noise to the beer but for me that doesn’t always mean anything. The beer was a clear red golden color with minimal carbonation in the glass and a bit hazy. It has a test of slight oatmeal and maple flavor. This gluten free beer is definitely my favorite of the two offerings that I have sampled from Omission.
In this video I took this beer to a home brewers club meeting. None of these people are gluten free so it is interesting to see what their opinion is of this low gluten (free) beer.
Here is what I found in sampling the Low Gluten (Free) Lager by Omission.
The beer poured with a white head that dissipated fairly quickly and slight lacing. There was a definite yeasty nose to the beer. The beer was a clear golden color with minimal carbonation in the glass and a bit hazy. This beer has a very light mouth feel and light taste. It has a slight after taste of hops as a beer should. This gluten free beer definitely tastes like beer and for me is a very drinkable beer and another good offering from Omission.
Omission had a vision to brew a great craft beer that happens to be gluten free. By current ATF guidelines, Omission cannot be labeled as gluten free because it is brewed with malted barley and de-glutenized with a proprietary process. With the new FDA gluten free guidelines, Omission now has a chance of being able to be labeled gluten free once again.
At the Gluten Free Beer Association we love to hear your opinions, let us know in the comments below what you think about Omissions fine beers!
Cheers! Thank you to Omission and Widmer Brothers for broadening our options in the Gluten Free Low Gluten Beer market!
