1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear dull gold. No head or lacing. Aromas are barely distinguishable. Has a lager-like mouthfeel with little to no taste besides sour malts. If all you can drink is gluten free beer, this will suffice. But itís really quite bad.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
pours a clear golden color with a small white head that dissipates quickly. the aroma is husky and the taste is where this beer goes south fast. maybe its because i have never had a gluten free beer so i guess i could be biased but this beer is not good. the taste is syrupy. i would not recommend.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a deep amber with a fading off-white head. The sorghum gives a gentle spiciness. It hinted off nutmeg to me. This was a bit skunky. I actually liked the New Grist better.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear gold with a medium white head. You can tell this is a specialty beer as it has a special aroma of cheese and almost musty or moldy. Light to medium sweet. Light body with a somewhat sticky (but mostly) thin texture and a slight sweet finish.

A GF beer that doesnít suck. But thatís not saying much. Way too much carbonation here & no head to speak of, bad signs. It has a certain musky, flat taste. Drink this extremely cold: if it sits out too much and starts to warm, look out! If you are thirsty, and itís really hot, and you must have a GF beer, this will work. A heavier hit of hops might have balanced out some of the cloying sweetness underneath this brew.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
bottled, poured clear brown (watered down cola) with NO head, aroma of something mildly sweet...not too sure what it is, huge carbonation in the mouth with flavor of....nothing. Tastes like sparkling water with a single hop leaf, not terrible, just nothing there. I feel bad rating this on ratebeer.com because it’s so far from a beer.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled as "Bardís". Poured a medium amber-yellow with thick "dirty" white head that had good lacing.Very grainy smelling. Taste was slightly sweet, but again very grainy with a little bit of aftertaste. Ok at best.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Iíve been very interested in sorghum in beer and was thus intrigued by this brew. Pours a clean gold with light white head that quickly fades to nada. The nose is different: sweet grain and cream soda. A watery body of similar taste comes and goes leaving little to remember her by: crisp, oddly sweet and slightly tart grain with a straight cream soda finish. I feel sorry for the gluten intolerant because this is no barley beer.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Consumed 8 months after production. Very clear amber with hints of ruby. Good appearance is where the ígoodnessí ends for this brew. Aroma is of sugary malts (this is a sourghum based concoction). No head and there was large bubbles lazily making their way to the top, so I figured the conditioning would not have much bite, but I was wrong. The carbonation had quite a bit of sting. mouthfeel was light to medium and left a slick palate. The tongue curling sweetness was followed by a tinny/metallic taste. Donít think Iíll try this again...I bought a single 12 oz bottle from Binnyís and Iím glad I never got the sixer...
