1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured with a nice amber color but with little to no head. Some carbonation. Flavor was suspect. Aftertaste was that of paper?? Maybe it is in my head. I read on the label it is made from sorghum so it could be in my head.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
The 12 ounce bottle poured crystal clear medium amber colored beverage with a small fizzy head that was fully diminishing and left no lacing on the glass. The aroma was somewhat, no, fully odd. It smelled like old coffee grounds and stale beer spilled on the barroom floor. The body was medium-light with rather flat carbonation and an oily texture. The flavor started off lightly sweet with a nice full grain flavor but soon took on an odd cough syrup taste at the back of the palate. I threw the rest out.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle. Smells like a nice loaf of fresh baked bread. Great aroma, but not for a beer. No carbonation at all. Tasted mildly hopped with a hint of coffee. Not great at all, but my fiancee can’t deal with wheat,, so this is just the thing to share with her.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a yellow-amber with a non-existant head. Aroma is bizarre...smells a lot like cheap, boxed wine. And surprise! It tatstes a lot like someone spiked a typical American style light lager with cheap boxed wine. What a bizarre brew. Not what I was expecting from sorghum, though in retrospect, I wouldn’t know what to expect. This tatses far less like beer than say, some of the rice-driven Hitachino brews. Well, I’m certainly glad the celiacs in the world have a "beer" to drink. Can’t help but think it could be done better though.

Yellow color with dry honey color and flavor. Grainy flavor with the faintest hint of coffee.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A deep amber color with a light head. This had a very unique flavor somewhat fruity in nature and seemed to have a slight lager feel. Easy to drink this is a going to be a chick brew in the long run.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear amber pour, not much head. Not much aroma. Pleasant on the palate, but flavor is muddled and tends toward the sour. Unremarkable.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz bottle. Pours gold with amber highlights. Small white head quickly disappears. Skunky pilsner like aroma. Tastes like wet cardboard smells with a hint of malty sweetness. Short and metallic finish. Decent for what it is I guess.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts and grain. The flavor is sweet malts, slight fruit, grain, and mildly bitter. Thin body, not bad.
