Omission, the gluten-removed brand from Widmer/Craft Brew Alliance, is introducing Ultimate Light Golden Ale, a 99 calories and 5 carbs per 12-ounce beer targeted at the ultra-health conscious drinker. The press release proclaims it to be “the perfect choice for beer drinkers who are looking for a lighter option but still want to enjoy the full flavor of a delicious craft beer.” What makes the Omission gluten-free beers stand-out is that they are brewed with traditional beer ingredients and utilize a process to remove most of the gluten that makes them suitable for celiacs and gluten intolerant folks. Even I must admit it’s one of the most real, natural tasting gluten-free beer brands available.
More from the press release:
“Consumers have a lot of choices when it comes to craft beer, but there aren’t many options if you’re looking for something that’s low in calories and carbs but still high in flavor,” said Joe Casey, Brewmaster, Omission Brewing Co. “We wanted to create a craft beer that gave active consumers a better-tasting option and one with the additional benefit of being crafted to remove gluten. Omission Ultimate Light is an incredibly versatile beer that delivers the complete craft beer experience without weighing you down.”
At just 4.2 percent ABV, Omission Ultimate Light is a sessionable golden ale with a distinctive hop aroma and flavor and a clean finish that leaves you wanting more. While Ultimate Light can be enjoyed year-round, its low alcohol content, super-light calorie-carb combo, and golden hue make it a perfect beer for summer.
Founded in 2012, Omission Brewing Co. is the first craft beer brand in the U.S. focused exclusively on brewing great-tasting beers with traditional beer ingredients, including malted barley, that have the benefit of being specially crafted to remove gluten. Ultimate Light joins an award-winning, best-selling lineup of beers crafted to remove gluten that includes Omission IPA, Omission Pale Ale and Omission Lager.
