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/).

If you must have a gluten free "beer", then maybe itís not so bad. Otherwise this is very metalic and artificial tasting. It is sweet, like splenda, and the finish is like very hard tap water. Not recommended to real beer drinkers.

Thanks to Huhzubendah for gifting this one. Served in a Bruery tulip. Pours a clear light copper color with a very short head that dissipates quickly, leaving just a bit of a collar with some big bubbles. The nose is pretty off-putting and smells mostly of rice with a bit of staleness. Flavor is full of adjunct character. Yuck. Light body and crisp carbonation. Dry, off-putting finish. Why do I use "off-putting" so much? That sums up this "beer." Why would you create a gluten-free beer and emphasize the gluten-free part? Maybe some hop or yeast character. Yuck. Sick. Boo.

Pours an apple juice color with aroma of malt. Taste is slightly metallic with a crispness to it. Aftertaste of dry malt mixed with a little bitterness. Overall an okay beer that wasnít exciting nor boring.

12oz bottle. Golden yellow with quickly fading, off white head. Sweet and slightly skunked malts, apples. Slightly thin and low carbonation, little sweet with some skunk, leaves a slightly bitter and apple taste on the palate. This is almost more like a bad cider then a bad beer. Yech.

12 ounce bottle.. Pours a clear gold with a short lived white head. Funky aroma of sweet grain? Taste is a different kind of sweet. Obviously the sorghum. Not very good.

Well, what you can expect from a sorghum lager? Aroma is kind of sour, maybe some ginger. Pale orange colour, looks like apple juice. Taste is watery, sour, medicinal. I wouldnít need to have this again.

Pour is light to medium amber with a somewhat bubbly laced head. Aromas of light sweet caramel, with slight earthy notes. Flavors of grass, bitter malt, and ends with a light skunkiness. Bitter, dry, and somewhat crisp. Much like a basic lager but more on the bitter side than usual.

Bottle of Bardís The Original Sorghum Malt Beer. Aroma of dough and bread. Poured a clear dark yellow color with a small white head. I tasted honey, apple, and a malty finish. Also there is an annoying lingering taste on the palate. This brew is nothing special and I canít recommend it to anyone that enjoys craft beers.

This is my first gluten-free brew to sample. If one has celiacís disease (the inability to process gluten commonly found in pasta, crackers, bread, etc.) this style of beer is one to sample. This brew poured up a golden-honey colored body with a one-finger thick frothy white colored head that dissipates quickly and leaves marginal lacing. Aromas of lots of sugars and dark honey. Flavors of the same but also include pear; so it is much like drinking a pear cider in my opinion. Light-bodied and very smooth/creamy. Loaded with carbonation and a finish that is clean and refreshing with no harsh aftertastes of any sort.
