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.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a monsterous dirty white head that laces pretty well and makes it almost impossible to pour. Aroma is of light hops. A bit of grass, some citrus and some floral notes. Flavor is lemony, hoppy, and some notes of light malt behind. In no way does this compare to budweiser. It is actually a pretty nice summertime micro. I think this was a little better than I expected it to be. Quite light on the palate and easy to drink.

"The worldís first craft brewed sorghum malt beer." Hooray for that! Seriously, my heart goes out to the gluten-intolerants and their needs. Pours a crisp, golden color, with no head at all. Aroma is largely vacant, with faint apple/pear hints, some honey, a light, delicate fruit factor. Not bad, just different. Glides onto the palate with ease, and rides out just as handily. Leaves little impression of flavor. Citrusy, smooth and clean. Itís hard to knock this brew, for it does what it does, is what it is, doesnít try to be anything else, and performs an important function. Light in body, with a crisp, dry mouthfeel. Faint finish, but, redeemably excellent drinkability. Lacks some in character, but, see last sentence of previous paragraph. Itís beer, you drink it, and you wonít get sick and die, if youíre one of them folks. So, hooray for that!

Skunky and vinegary aroma. transparent pale yellow in color. Tiny bubbly head. Flavor is thin, but notes of grain and bready malt are present. There is a kind of vegetal mash note there as well, but it is faint. Very unique flavor. I havenít encountered the like before.

Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2005
a very light and crisp lager. very pale clear yellow hue. highly carbonated, fizzy. small white head that doesnít last. little aroma of corn. taste begins of faint corn fructose. but then the aftertaste is sour and fruity like apples. it also dries out your mouth. while it goes down light and refreshing on the palate, the dryness is unpleasant. I rated this beer higher than I would if it were based on my personal like/dislike of the beer. This is the only beer that individuals with Celiac ( a wheat allergy) can drink. It is impressive what the brewer was able to create, a very average-good and very drinkable beer which such limited ingredients.b

Very thin when poured out of the bottle. Very very pale yellow with a thin white head. A rather wheaty aroma, smells quite similar to a random pilsner. The taste leaves something to be desired. Initial taste isnít bad, but finishes with the taste of stale creamed corn. Itís far from my favorite beer, but if itís targeted to you, please give it a shot.

Gold color with no head. Very odd aroma that struck me as bubble gum mixed with freshly cut grass. Pretty appealing. Dry hops taste with a clear wooden finish. Different, but pretty good.

Looks like itís gonna be a light ale - nice gold color, sparkly, medium head with light lacing. Light sweet fruit aroma. Taste starts off ok; malty with a little herbal hop finish. I hated the overall finish though, it took on this chemical flavor that just left a horrible taste in my mouth afterwards - is that flavor from the sorghum? I wouldnít drink this again.

Reading the commericial deScription, what kind of brewer would intentionally try to appeal to those who prefer Coors, Miller, etc? I guess they succeeded, because I find this just as rancid/repulsing/awful as the macros.
