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/).

Ibrew2or3 (6881) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Pours copper with gold edges and loose thin white head lasting a good 40 seconds. The aroma has caramel, light dark fruitiness and a touch of graininess being run down by a wave of brown sugar. The taste begins bubbly sweet with brown sugar and light notes of grainy molasses and caramel. The carbonation gets a bit prickly staving off the overly sweet table sugar and brown sugar like notes. Behind the slick sweetness are mild notes of floral hops, earthy hops and plastic trashbag.

DuffMan (6736) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle, with the blue label that says "Bardís The Original Sorghum Beer". Pours a clear gold with a fizzy white head that vanishes within minutes. I think I have yet to find a beer for celiacs that can hold a head. Anyway, low aroma of sweet grain, over-ripe apple, and iodine. Grainy palate that thankfully is less apple-tainted than other sorghum brews Iíve tried, again with a dry iodine note, and a welcome bitterness in the finish. I would group this with the very small number of beers I could actually drink if I were to develop celiac disease.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 11, 2010
The label indicates Bardís Gold from Utica. Pours clear caramel with a bubbly off-white head and a light cereal aroma. There is a strange bubble gum flavor with a slightly bitter finish.

Bottle 355 ml
Aroma repulsive band aid aroma that followed up with spoiled fruits. I had hard time to sniff this again just to make sure how bad was it and that does not happen very often.
Appearance dark golden with lighter top. Fizzy mid. 2-
Flavor and Palate : After being shocked with its aroma I had my reservations to have sip of it. Result was similar Ė wide array of off flavors, green apple, diacetyl, phenols, crazy bad funk in there. This must be one of worst creations ever made in beer world. My sample was extremely bad.

DrSilverworm (6365) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2013
12oz bottle. Bottled 6/19/2013. Clear golden color, with a minimal white head. Apricot, peach flavor up front, with an olive aftertaste. Seeing as how the description compared this to macro-lagers, this is surprising. Lighter body. Sharper, stronger carbonation, kind of biting. Moderate bitter taste, lightly tart. Not very enjoyable nor easy-drinking. On the upside, the more I drink of it, the less offensive it becomes, the more I get used to the whole thing. There is a general cidery quality to the texture, though, not as full bodied as most beers.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle courtesy of sloth. Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of sweet caramel, rice, cookie dough. Tastes watery with some weird underlying sweetness. Saccharine like finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle: Vibrant golden, almost fiery orange, extremely translucent, large white dishwater head, sparce lacing.   Head dies quickly... seems still.   Berry like nose, very fruity to start, much like taffy.   Pale malt, little to no hop, slight sweetness.   Body and mouthfeel are barely moderate.   Very soft artificial Boo Berry or Franken Berry flavor on the finish, slight cereal.   Not bad, but not that interesting either.

Ernest (6216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal, caramel, wort), with light notes of DMS and plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Very raw and crude. Maybe a touch better then the state it was in at GABF 2004, but still...damn. Hard to stomach. One word: Redbridge.

after4ever (6125) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2008
12-oz. Pours a brilliant crystal clear coppery medium amber with verrrry little grayish head. Nasty cherry nose, smells synthetic. Mostly butterscotch on the nose, but the artificial fruit is hard to forget once you notice it. Medium body, odd for a lager, and somewhat fizzy. More weird phony butterscotch and cherry on the mid-palate. If youíre allergic to barley malt, and this is your only other beer option, for godís sake, start learning about scotch or red wine.

drowland (6024) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2010
11/4/10. 12oz bottle labeled "Bardís Original Sorghum Malt Beer." Clear, dark golden pour with a fizzy white head that is gone instantly. Sweet caramel aroma with medicinal properties and a faint booziness. Sweet and slightly spicy flavor with hints of diacetyl, green apples, and medicine. Meh.
