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.

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.

11/4/10. 12oz bottle labeled "Bard’s 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.

"meh. not a sorghum fan, but wheni saw this was flying bison beer, had to give it a fair shake. i’ll stick to the gluten. Fake, sweetish smell and taste. Slightly refreshing, but with zero complexity or other interesting qualities."

Bouteille de 12 oz achetée chez Beverage Warehouse (Winooski, VT). Arôme: Odeur de levure et de fleur. Apparence: La couleur est blonde orangée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’houblon avec une touche d’agrumes. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Apparence: Le corps et la texture sont mince. Faible effervescence en bouche. (Rating #641)

Bought at Arlens Market.; Had as Bards Sorghum Beer .. . thanks for the sixer Rica, you guys can keep the other five .. . Little aroma of old wet bread and public bowling ball finger holes .. . terrible mouth, gritty and old, with a underlining sourness .. . i could choke this down if i had that bread disease but this was pretty bad .. . doesn’t go well with chewy microwaved chex mix .. . and your sister is still a ghetto chickenhead!

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, barely there tight white head. Aroma of butterscotch. Flavor has some of the same butterscotch notes with some ripening vegetable funkiness and a touch of molasses. Reminds me somewhat of malta. Somewhat sticky, but lifeless mouthfeel. Better than most sorghum beers - but glad I do not have to resort to these for medicinal reasons.

12 oz bottle split with Pwn3d. Body is golden brown. Aroma is caramel and malt. The taste is malt, watered down soda taste - not good.

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.

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.
