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 Bardís Tale Beer (<A HREF=http://www.bardsbeer.com/ TARGET=blank>http://www.bardsbeer.com/).

Pours a clean straw yellow with a thin fizzy white head. Nose is very light and muted with some grassy and lightly sweet notes. Flavor is light and grassy with a hint of sweetness and a touch of grape flavor. Light bodied and no bitterness.

Pours a plae gold with a thin, off white head that has good retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma is huge on soghum, some light fruity sweetness, toast and sweat. Flavor is still big on sorghum, a little sweaty, some artificial vanilla and hazelnut flavors, toast, light caramel and light honey floral notes. Palate is light and pretty neutral throughout with a light, somewhat sharp carbonation. The flavor is not too bad, which was a surprise after the pretty unpleasant aroma, decently refreshing. Meh.

Patrickctenchi (3458) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pours amber, with an off-white head. Taste is sweet sorghum, maybe some apple peel... Taste is grainy with almost a spice or clove aspect to it. Very different. Not really a fan.

12 oz bottle packaged as Bardís Original Sorghum. Worst beer Iíve ever had. First beer ever I didnít want to finish (I still did).

Not the worst sorghum beer Iíve had, but not good, either. I canít say i like the overall taste very much. The sorghum hits you immediately after putting it in your mouth. The finish is better though.

Had this packaged as Bardís at Ranallis. I think there should almost be a separate rating category for gluten free beers. Being made with Sorghum it has that thin tinny flavor but then itís not barley malt. Not too bad for what it is. Serving: Bottle

Packaged as "Bards" I canít say it was terrible, but itís nothing worth writing home about either. I had not had a sorghum beer before, so I had low expectations whcih this actually beat. The aroma was pleasant and a bit fruity, with and odd tinge to it Iím assuming is sorghum. Very thin head. Flavor is much lighter than the aroma would indicate, not unpleasant but very unremarkable. As afar as the gluten-free beers go, proably the best Iíve had to date, and as a side note, one of only two truly "paleo" beers Iíve seen - the other gluten free beers usually contain other grain products - corn syrup, rice or corn extract, etc...

Disgusting. Disgusting. Disgusting. Really. It was the worst beer I ever had, and this is not a hyperbole. Iíve had gluten-free beer before and it was at least palatable, this was not. I have a strict rule of never dumping a beer, but I almost did on this beer. The sorghum must have effed this beer up.
