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/).

argo0 (11351) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 2, 2006
(12oz bottle, bottled 5/30/06) Clear apple juice body topped by small but frothy off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, herbal tea, peach. Taste is medium sweet, bread, lime, some nectarine. Light body. Not saying that itís particularly good, but itís much better than New Grist, another sorghum beer, which I tried immediately before this one.

Christian (11028) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2008
Dark golden with a small white head. Sweet grainy malt aroma, with notes of nuts and prunes. Sweet fruity flavour, with a slightly sour fruit juice-like note. Considering the other ratings, it must have been oxidized. And that may not have been a bad thing...

bhensonb (10808) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Rather different sort of aroma; maybe a bit caramel. Solid amber color with wholly non-retentive head. Starts quite sweet. Near medium body with mild carbonation. The finish is rather caramel sweet with no detectable bitter. Itís ok, but ... On the other hand it is incredibly better than Bud!! Might be a little bitter building over time. Certainly not offensive.

Bottle. Poured golden color with an average frothy head that diminished quickly and left fair lacing. Medium sweet grainy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet syrupy flavor with a bitter sweet finish of short duration.

Lubiere (9790) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
Bought at Party Source, July 05. Lightly hazy blonde with brownish chunks. Rather neutral malt aroma with slight marks of burned rubber (*the bottle was heat shocked in my trunk). In mouth, rather refreshing mix of light crisp grass with decent bitterness for the style. Not bad considering its gluten free. A notch above MessagŤre.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a small diminishing amber head. Aromas of carmel and light vinegar like aroma ( possibly sorghum?). Palate was lioght bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, straw and a light hint of fruitiness with a crisp ligfhtly bitter finish.
