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/).

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.

Life is too short to drink inferior beer. Down the drain. Light golden color, smells like some sort of cleaner, tastes like beer with a little gas mixed in. Blech! Tfoo!

I’ve never been a fan of sorghum beer and this one is no exception. Overly sweet, vaguely chemical tastes of metal, corn, and brown sugar.

Yellow pour with watery white head. Aroma is corn and light malt. A floral flavor not so much as hops but a candiness. Light bodied and fizzy. Just not very pleasing to me

Bottle. My wife tried this for the gluten free so I thought I would give it a try. Not too bad if you have to go gluten free. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Worst beer in the history of beer. Would prefer to drink Coors's Light. Taste is foul. If you don't have celiac, suggest you avoid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle with old "the original sorghum malt beer" label. Pours a clear orange/amber color with quickly vanishing white head but good lacing. Aroma is overwhelmingly chemical and artificial, but with perhaps some sweet prune juice. Taste is artificially sweet with an aftertaste which reminds me of a biology lab. Body is watery thin, but with lots of prickly carbonation. I was expecting something mediocre but instead had trouble finishing this one. I can think of many pale lagers and malt liquors which taste much better than this.

Bard’s The Original Sorghum Beer has a medium, white head and a clear, gold-amber appearance, with a good amount of streaming bubbles and essentially no lacing. The aroma is of syrupy-sweet grain, and the flavor is of that, as well as grass, a slight bitterness, and a subtle, underlying health-food store taste. Mouthfeel is light watery, and Bard’s The Original Sorghum Beer finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and drinkable. No unusual off flavors, here. I found it to be surprisingly good. RJT

Bouteille 355ml sous le nom "Bard’s Gold Bard’s The Original Sorghum Malt Beer". De couleur orangée-dorée et claire. Nez de grains de céréales légèrement sucrées, léger de levures fruitées (pelures de pommes), léger de houblon floral avec des petites notes chimiques. Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture légèrement aqueuse et aux petites notes huileuses. Léger goût de levures fruitées (pelures de pommes, notes de zeste d’agrumes) avec des petites traces de légumes bouillis lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de céréales sèches puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon floral avec un léger goût sucré, rappelant du caramel brûlé, qui se développe. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, légèrement amer de houblon floral avec des notes de céréales légèrement sucrées.
