0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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 – 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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Shit i keep buying bottles of this sorghum stuff thinking its a real beer. Pours a scotch amber body with a with head. Chewy tawny caramel aroma, and a hint of alcohol aroma not bad!!! Dull metallic, rice wine, and cardboard flavor dammit this one sucks, aroma could have fooled me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Yellow gold, light white head, light lacing. Nose of light dust and hops, some odd grainy notes. The flavor is ok, somewhat toasty and moldy, but distinctly not barley. The finish is spicy. Meh.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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 you’re allergic to barley malt, and this is your only other beer option, for god’s sake, start learning about scotch or red wine.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 When I read of this beer a few months ago, I thought, "What a noble cause. Here’s someone trying to help out beer drinkers who develop an allergy to gluten." Then I bought a sixer of this overpriced brew at a Whole Foods. After reading the inanities on the package (see austinpowers’ review), I was sure that this was just a gimmick. On to the beer - - It pours a hazy straw color with (initially) a bubbly white head and (initially) lively carbonation. Both soon vanish. The aroma is wheaty and corny and oily with little of any sign of the advertised "pleasant hop aroma." This flat drink has an acrid, tinny flavor with a little grainy sweetness and a whisper of light hopping. The aftertaste was metallic and sugary and I had to brush my teeth before having another beer. I would NOT let this warm up. Now I’m not sure if this is a gimmick or a sorry joke.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, with the blue label that says "Bard’s 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 I’ve 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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This lager pours a yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is grain and cereal, a touch sour/lactic but not in a bad way. A medium to light bodied Pale Lager. Malts are grainy and cereal. Hops are mild and kind of spicy. Flat carbonation. Very Budwesier like yet it has a slight sour/lactic flavor to it. I am assuming that is from the sorgum than a brewing fault. It doesn’t have the crisp rice flavor that Bud has so that one point in its favor. But its still a fairly generic tasting Pale Lager. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertate is slightly bitter.
