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/).

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.

HeistAlmighty (1040) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
355ml bottle as Bardís The Original Sorghum Malt Beer. Pours a clear dark copper colour with a little bit of white head with large, fleeting bubbles. Aroma is quite pleasant. Taste is kind of weird malt (must be the sorghum) with some tart sourness. Palate was a bit on the thin side. Overall, one of the better gluten free beers Iíve had and the odd conversation starter under the cap was a nice touch.

Cybercat (2985) - Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Pours a clear bubbly dark honey golden, almost coppery. Aroma is crisp, malty and a little fruity - you would hardly know this is a sorghum beer. Crisp flavor is mainly malty and lagerish, with a hint of hops and a firm apple cider tone. Sharp, fizzy, lively texture makes this a delight to drink. Canít have gluten? You can still have good beer!

Spab (2123) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2011
12 oz bottle from NSLC. Pours a clear light amber colour with small white head. Aroma and flavour have a funny somewhat sour graininess with a hint of fruitiness. Sort of lifeless carbonation. I remain glad that I can have gluten.

Syzzer (571) - Oregon, USA - AUG 9, 2011
One of the best Gluten free beers Iíve had. It is sorghum and has better palate than typical rice beers with great malt tone. ABV 4.7, IBU 20.5, SRM 11

Sampled in a 12oz bottle. Pours light yellow and a little cloudy. A refreshing brew with good malts. Hops are light and decent.

The color is nice, there isnít much head, but the smell isnít giving me a lot of promise. The flavor is...not especially pleasant. I canít even figure out how to describe it. I knew not to expect anything like other light amber ales, but all I am getting is what I assume is the sorghum. No other kind of hops or nuances. I really wanted to like this beer, but I just donít. I think making an IPA out of this and masking the flavor the malt would be a good direction. I donít think itís badly brewed, I just think I donít dig on sorghum. Unfortunate.

Sledutah (4109) - Utah, USA - JUL 20, 2011
12oz bottle from the state store
I wasnít expecting much and I wasnít disappointed!
The good: Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head and good lacing
The medium: Aroma is bready with spices
The bad: Taste is very bisquity with some sourness
Footbalmed the rest of the glass. For some reason I also bought another sorghum beer at the same time. Iím looking forward (not) to trying it.
