COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Golden Sorghum Lager will appeal to beer drinkers who prefer the lighter taste of lagers produced by the major brewers, such as Anheuser-Busch, Coors, Miller, and Heineken. This ale has a light crisp taste to meet the thirst quenching requirements of the lager style while still having enough body to interest the ale drinker during the spring and summer seasons. This beer has low bitterness and a subtle but pleasant hop aroma that will gently caress the senses.

Note: contract brewed for Bard’s Tale Beer (<A HREF=http://www.bardsbeer.com/ TARGET=blank>http://www.bardsbeer.com/).

pours clear rich gold with a small quickly fading white head. no distinct aroma, just a faint bread. Tastes crisp with a little sweetness. slightly sweet finish. no real hop presence.

Bottle labeled "Bard’s Gold" with the slogan "Discuss it over a Bard’s." It looks like most of the raters think there is not much to discuss. This is a sorghum brew from upstate New York (not California). Dense, reddish-brown pour. A slightly funky aroma of yeast and tangy, floral hops. It is fairly thin, but flavorful enough - citrusy sourness dominates, along with a little allspice, coriander, and sorghum. Pretty good.

Poured golden yellow with a thin white head that disappeared immediately. Fruity aromas, sweet flavors with some bitterness. Not sure who thought this was a good idea. Ugh...

Bleh! Like a horrible champagne mixed with grape juice. Just poor quality and very very dry.

pours a clear golden color with a small white head that dissipates quickly. the aroma is husky and the taste is where this beer goes south fast. maybe its because i have never had a gluten free beer so i guess i could be biased but this beer is not good. the taste is syrupy. i would not recommend.

BOSSbrewer (1584) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Pours a crisp clear golden yellow. No head at all. Aroma of freshly mowed grass. Comes close to malt flavor but a bit cidery. Not much flavor at all. Very thin mouthfeel. Finishes clean and slightly bitter. This is the best of the gluten free beers I've had.

EtTuCthulhu (1023) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - OCT 17, 2013
The appearance of this beer is a deep golden color with a very, very small white head, and the aroma is really sweet with some yeast scents. The taste is quite sour and a touch of sweetness, but the palate is really unpleasing due to the light body, thin and slick texture, soft carbonation, and a really, really sour and off-putting finish.

DrSilverworm (6288) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2013
12oz bottle. Bottled 6/19/2013. Clear golden color, with a minimal white head. Apricot, peach flavor up front, with an olive aftertaste. Seeing as how the description compared this to macro-lagers, this is surprising. Lighter body. Sharper, stronger carbonation, kind of biting. Moderate bitter taste, lightly tart. Not very enjoyable nor easy-drinking. On the upside, the more I drink of it, the less offensive it becomes, the more I get used to the whole thing. There is a general cidery quality to the texture, though, not as full bodied as most beers.

Bottle. Gold pour. Aroma of faint fruits or floral. Taste is slightly sweet. Mouth feel is smooth.

mansquito (3338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Stolen from roommate: Pours super pale with almost no head. Aroma is sugar and weird sorghum funk. Taste is a light gluten free taste, but lacks some of the off-tastes that other celiac-friendly beers have. Could be worse.
