2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled as íBardísí, still a sorghum beer. Ok, this one also contract brewed, though is distributed through Norwalk and brewed and bottled in Utica. Grainy, lightly malty nose with some apparent artificial sweetener. Dark golden body, still clear, with a sudsy off-beige head. Crisp smack, medium body, malty with some grass and dull-around-the-edges citrus. Some caramel in with the oxidized cardboard and the sweet after. Itís not terrible, sort of a skunked pale lager.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-gold body crowned with a small ring of white bubbles.
Smell: Candyish aroma accompanied by the stink of sorghum. Of all the sorghum beers Iíve punished myself with, this oneís aroma has been the least offensive.
Taste: A sugary, candyish sweetness canít quite mask that noxious, repellent sorghum taste. Iím tapping out, I cannot finish this.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Mild carbonation.
Drinkability: Ugh, I just canít do the sorghum.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma isnít that much different than an adjunct laden macro lager. It is malty and herbal with some alcohol. The appearance is golden with a foamy head. The flavor is like the aroma with a bitter soapy finish. The palate is almost smooth. Overall not bad if you canít have gluten but not a great beer overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer actually looks good-surprising for a sorghum beer. Nice orange color. Beer goes down as easily as an macro, if not easier and is perhaps the best gluten-free beer Iíve ever had.

Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashiís place. Thanks kerenmk. As "Bardís The Original Sorghum Malt Beer". Hazy golden with no head. Weird cereals aroma. Very unpleasant weird cereals flavor with some sweetness and a sour edge. Light-bodied. Yuck.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Plenty of hops in the aroma here. They really jump out. Flavor is a mix of corn, honey and grapefruit and there is a slight bitter aftertaste. There is slight carbonation visible in the glass but it seems to create bubbles in the mouth.
