12 oz bottle..was interested to try a sorghum based beeer.. pours what looks like a cream soda color and pop-like head. nose it light watery molasses, sugary. tastes like experimental pop..with hop bittering..thin body.. makes for a bad soda, and worse beer..

Golden and herbal/lightly fruity on the nose, neither of which jumped out at me. Taste is of -- and this was really, really fun putting together -- sourdough bread, La Choi soy sauce, Special K, and Aunt Jemimah. If someone offered me a slice of sourdough with a La Choi/Special K/Aunt Jemimah dipping sauce, Iíld eat the bread and dump the sauce on whoever was demented enough to make it. I suppose an íAí for effort, but thatís it.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold color pour with no head. Interesting taste to say the least. Almost like a Non Alcoholic beer. Not terrible but if I needed to drink gluten free beer, this would be ok.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours deep orange, minimal head. Nose has sweet fruit smell. A little biscuitty, slightly sour, cidery. Slightly slick mouthfeel. Canít get over the fruit juice smell the more I drink. Not as bad as Iíd feared, and not offensive if you donít mind the sweet fruit taste, but not worth buying as more than a novelty.

I have tryed one other sorghum beer, besides this one. And this one blew the other away. It was slightly darker than expected with a light caramel color. The taste reminded me of a wheat beer, but with a differant sort of grassyness to it. Nice and cloudy with a good amount of flavor in every sip, truly something different in the beer world.

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.

Bardís Gold is the beer I tried. Bottle.
This is a horrible beer. I wasnít expecting much given that it is a sorghum beer, but this was just bad. Looks decent enough in the glass, but plug your nose if you take a sip.
Iíd rather choke down Colt 45 from a can than experience Bardís gold again.

I didnít know what to expect out of a sorghum beer, but i loved the video game the name is based off of so i had to try it. It tastes a little like coffee or molasses, but goes down VERY smooth.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear amber pour, not much head. Not much aroma. Pleasant on the palate, but flavor is muddled and tends toward the sour. Unremarkable.

Bottle. Pours clear and golden with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is sweet, almost apple scent. Taste is light, thin and sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Definitely a unique beer. Glad I tried it.
