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/).

12oz bottle, no date found...pours golden with no head. Smells strongly of butter, carmel, and yes, some of that DMS too...but Iím not totally put off by it...until Iím about halfway through the glass, as it has warmed and began to stink. And it shows up in the flavor as well...although Iíve no idea what Sorghum tastes like...Iím not sure that this would appeal to somebody that likes macro lagers...too funky...in a bad way.

The 12 ounce bottle poured crystal clear medium amber colored beverage with a small fizzy head that was fully diminishing and left no lacing on the glass. The aroma was somewhat, no, fully odd. It smelled like old coffee grounds and stale beer spilled on the barroom floor. The body was medium-light with rather flat carbonation and an oily texture. The flavor started off lightly sweet with a nice full grain flavor but soon took on an odd cough syrup taste at the back of the palate. I threw the rest out.

First gluten free beer Iíve tried. Light copper with small head. Aroma is sour honey...taste is of doughy bread, and badness. I couldnít stomach more than a few ounces. Iíd rather have bud light; at least that tastes like water.

This was just awful, like sucking down sugar water. I took one drink and dumped it out. Sweet Sweet Sweet thatís all i got.

Dragon Whiz. In Zimbabwe (which I knew as Rhodesia) the Mashona brew a substance called doro, which is made of millet or sorghum. They use bread yeast, and drink large quantities until they are bestonkered. It’s a ghastly mess, but better and safer than the water. This tasted almost exactly like that. Bottle. Poured pale gold with white foam. Aroma of caramel, and nothing else. Flavour of caramel, and water. Finish of caramel and nothing else. Pas op!.

bottled, poured clear brown (watered down cola) with NO head, aroma of something mildly sweet...not too sure what it is, huge carbonation in the mouth with flavor of....nothing. Tastes like sparkling water with a single hop leaf, not terrible, just nothing there. I feel bad rating this on ratebeer.com because it’s so far from a beer.

Thanks to Huhzubendah for gifting this one. Served in a Bruery tulip. Pours a clear light copper color with a very short head that dissipates quickly, leaving just a bit of a collar with some big bubbles. The nose is pretty off-putting and smells mostly of rice with a bit of staleness. Flavor is full of adjunct character. Yuck. Light body and crisp carbonation. Dry, off-putting finish. Why do I use "off-putting" so much? That sums up this "beer." Why would you create a gluten-free beer and emphasize the gluten-free part? Maybe some hop or yeast character. Yuck. Sick. Boo.

This beer tastes horrible, and for a beer that has no flavor thatís pretty impressive. Whatís worse is that Iíve never gagged while drinking a beer up until drinking this. Barley and bitter honey are the only flavors here, but that isnít the point. Whatís the point? To avoid drinking this!

12 oz. bottle with old "the original sorghum malt beer" label. Pours a clear orange/amber color with quickly vanishing white head but good lacing. Aroma is overwhelmingly chemical and artificial, but with perhaps some sweet prune juice. Taste is artificially sweet with an aftertaste which reminds me of a biology lab. Body is watery thin, but with lots of prickly carbonation. I was expecting something mediocre but instead had trouble finishing this one. I can think of many pale lagers and malt liquors which taste much better than this.
