Gluten-Free Beer: Omission Pale Ale

Posted by Chris Onstad on Mon, Apr 23, 2012 at 2:29 PM

Our tasting panel far preferred Omission's gluten-free pale ale to their gluten-free lager, with regards to its similarity to the original product. It has the hop attack of a classic northwest pale, front-loaded with that fresh, lively, sour-bitter goodness that has you stomping your boot-heel and reciting bridges.

This beer has so little gluten, it could basically never be kneaded into satisfying bread.

One member of the tasting panel, who is extremely smart and craves talking, did note with professional displeasure that the beer did not achieve a satisfying long finish, and that he could "taste where there wasn't something." Things like that get a bit existential for me, but I know what he meant. (It might have been gluten.) However, if you're drinking gluten-free these days, this is an option worth considering.
