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/).

pours clear rich gold with a small quickly fading white head. no distinct aroma, just a faint bread. Tastes crisp with a little sweetness. slightly sweet finish. no real hop presence.

This beer was better than I expected after some of the reviews. It is light but a bit too sweet for my tastes. The nose is slighly hoppy, predominatly spicy noble characteristic. Body is right, but the finish has a very odd flavor that I can not put my finger on. It is somewhat like plastic and unfortuantely it lingers. If you are gluten intollerant and love beer this MIGHT pass.

I’m a fantasy junkie. I’m in a band that writes songs about video games, grew up on Tolkien’s LoTR and have a replica of Sting (no,not the singer) mounted on my wall. Needless to say, I was pretty turned on by the name of Bard’s Tale Beer - Dragon’s Gold. Good lord, was I wrong. This beer almost has a scent. It also almost has a flavor. It has very crisp carbonation that leaves your mouth as soon as you swallow. I’d rather have a Bud Lite than this yard-trash.

Better than the average rating suggests. Unique taste up front but familiar to anyone accustomed to major brewery American beers in its finish.

Wow, this was bad. Poured light yellow with no real head. Smelled like piss. Tasted like rotting grass. Couldnt finish a bottle.

Poured with a nice amber color but with little to no head. Some carbonation. Flavor was suspect. Aftertaste was that of paper?? Maybe it is in my head. I read on the label it is made from sorghum so it could be in my head.

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.

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.

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.
