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/).

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 wonít make me a fan, but if gluten is not your thing, Brasseurs Sans Gluten brews the best ones.

The beer is slightly hazy and appears a light orange color. The aroma offers some sweet, malty fruit, with a hint of candied oranges. Light toffee in the flavor, with some biscuit malt in the taste as well. Sweet fruit is present throughout. Light to medium in body, with moderately low carbonation. A decent choice for those who must have gluten free beer, though not my cup of tea. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-29-2011

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.

fidelis83 (1955) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 15, 2012
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 (3703) - 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.

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.
