    Full tasting for low carb diets.

    Finally a low carb beer that has flavor! And, brewed gluten free is a bonus for me (no issues with gluten, just trying to limit it while doing Keto). I also love the fact that it is smooth and I can enjoy a few without feeling any impact. I loved the Omission IPAs when they were made but WB stopped making it. In looking for its replacement on the WB site, I came across this brew about the time I started Keto. Let the angels sing! I just wish more stores sold them! Highly recommend this.

    This beer is 100 percent just like drinking its normal gluten/carb filled alternative. And it’s not for sale in any location remotely close to me so Drizly was a lifesaver.

    Happy to have a decent tasting gluten free beer low in carbs and calories!!

FAQs

Golden/blonde ale is an approachable, delicious beer that ticks all the boxes: it’s flavorful, relatively healthy, gorgeous to look at, refreshing and not too strong on flavors like hops or malt. That makes it a great choice for those moments when you simply want to “grab a beer” and relax — and with plenty of different flavors like spices, fruit, honey and hoppy bitterness to choose from in different brands, you’ll never grow tired of deep-diving into the golden/blonde world. Either lager or ale yeast can be used to make golden/blonde ale, which further adds to the flavor opportunities.
The prevailing flavors of golden/blonde ale are a delicious graininess and bready flavor. They’re also sweet and can be fruity thanks to the type of yeast used, though this is balanced by a light hoppy bitterness. Ales tend to have fuller bodies than lagers, and though golden/blonde ale is no exception to this rule, it does not have the filling effect of many other ales. Instead, its lower calorie and carb counts make it a great choice when you want a bready beer without the filling effect.
You can expect your average golden/blonde ale to pack an ABV rating of 4.8%. The reason for this alcohol rating is a historical one. During the first half of the 20th century, World War I and World War II had each radically changed the beer industry. In 1915, in the thick of the first World War, British Parliament signed the Defense of the Realm Act into law. This law required beer to be produced at lower alcohol levels to ensure English workers weren’t partying too hard to produce war munitions. At the same time, many of the ingredients used to make darker ales came from Germany and became difficult to source. As a result, lower-alcohol, paler beers became increasingly popular until they became the norm.
Traditionally, golden/blonde ale is not gluten-free as it’s made using malt. However, thanks to modern beer-making innovations, you can enjoy gluten-free golden/blonde ales from several different makers. One of these is Ultimate Light Golden Ale by Omission, which is a smooth ale that goes down easy and packs a flavorful punch. Think plenty of hoppy citruses and a clean finish. Better yet, this gluten-free option packs only 99 calories and 3 grams of carbs, so it won’t fill you up like many of its gluten-happy alternatives.
Golden/blonde ale is indeed an ale, though it’s sometimes fermented using lager yeasts. Being an ale means it is produced using a different method from that of lagers: ales are made using warm temperatures between 60° and 70°F with top-fermenting yeast, which imparts a fuller body and a sweet, fruity flavor. By contrast, lagers are made using bottom-fermenting yeast in cooler temperatures — usually between 35°F and 50°F. As a result, they tend to have a crisp, refreshing bite that’s clean and sharp. Brewmasters will often add things like malts and hops for additional flavor.
You can expect your average golden/blonde ale to contain 107 calories and 2 grams of carbohydrates for a 12 oz. serving. For comparison, a regular beer usually weighs in a bit heavier at 150 calories and 13 grams of carbohydrates. Those are pretty significant savings in both, particularly in carbs. You get to enjoy a beer with a bready, grainy flavor that’s also got some delightful sweet notes to it — all for a lower calorie/carb price.

Drizly's take

Reduce or eliminate gluten from your diet without sacrificing any taste with Omission Ultimate Light Golden Ale. Omission Brewing Company has been brewing its own branded beers since 2012. An independent lab tests all Omission beers for gluten using the R5 Competitive ELISA test to ensure levels in compliance with United States Food and Drug Administration regulations for gluten-free food and beverages. Released in 2017, Omission Ultimate Light Golden Ale provides a low-calorie, low-alcohol option at 4.2% ABV and packed with flavor. It's great for those who want to stay in shape and who need or want to avoid gluten.

Brewed like regular ale, an enzyme called Brewers Clarex™ breaks down the gluten at the end of the process. The result is a light-bodied, citrusy golden ale with a subtle bitterness from the hops and a mildly sweet malt flavor. With just the right amount of carbonation, this craft ale is moderately crisp with a clean finish. Sip on an Omission Ultimate Light beer on warm sunny days while working in the garden or on picnics and at cookouts. Pick up a six-pack or two at a Drizly in your city or check out liquor stores on Drizly near you.
