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 golden without a head. loads of phenols, meds, nail polish, pepper, rotten apples and fig juice. prickly, almost aggressive carbonation, light body - very watery. horrid, simply horrid. one of the worst beer ever tasted - would drink any macro instead of this, even the malt-liquorish horrid stuff out there.

off-orange amber colored body with quickly dissipating head. scent of manufacturing chemicals, iodine and chlorine bleach. Flavor is similar but leaves an unpleasant, lingering flavor. pwah, couldn’t ask for worse swill.

Gyllengul öl, nästan helt utan skum. Doften har en lätt parfymerad ton som känns opassande. Väldigt lätta smaker av bröd. Tråkig.

Bottle shared at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Pours greenish gold, clear, no head. Sweet, apple aroma, tastes sour. A little vinegar and then sweet. Almost no carbonation but still stings. Light body, short finish.

Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks kerenmk. As "Bard’s The Original Sorghum Malt Beer". Hazy golden with no head. Weird cereals aroma. Very unpleasant weird cereals flavor with some sweetness and a sour edge. Light-bodied. Yuck.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a small white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is corn malt and wheat. Similar flavor to the aroma. Not much going on with this one.

This beer tastes horrible, and for a beer that has no flavor that’s pretty impressive. What’s worse is that I’ve never gagged while drinking a beer up until drinking this. Barley and bitter honey are the only flavors here, but that isn’t the point. What’s the point? To avoid drinking this!

12 oz bottle A Christmas 2012 beer. The color was a clear golden color with no head. The sweetness of sorghum with no bitterness was not apppealing. Soft carbonation and light body. The finish was sweet and not noteworthy.

I was lucky to find a single of this at the LCBO... as I am not a big fan of gluten-free beer. "The Original Sorghum Malt Beer" pours a golden colour with a foamy white cap that does last and gives out soapy lacing. The aroma is quite strong for this, with lots of sweetness (grape juice, honey), hay and hints of burnt plastic. Just really different. The taste is not as strong though, with watered-down apple cider and white grapes. Kind of bland. This one won’t make me a fan, but if gluten is not your thing, Brasseurs Sans Gluten brews the best ones.
