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.

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.

Life is too short to drink inferior beer. Down the drain. Light golden color, smells like some sort of cleaner, tastes like beer with a little gas mixed in. Blech! Tfoo!

Gold color. Very light hop and chemical aroma. Flavor is sweet fermented grains. Really not much body at all.

I’m a fantasy junkie. I’m in a band that writes songs about video games, grew up on Tolkien’s LoTR and have a replica of Sting (no,not the singer) mounted on my wall. Needless to say, I was pretty turned on by the name of Bard’s Tale Beer - Dragon’s Gold. Good lord, was I wrong. This beer almost has a scent. It also almost has a flavor. It has very crisp carbonation that leaves your mouth as soon as you swallow. I’d rather have a Bud Lite than this yard-trash.

I was really looking forward to trying this beer (I had the Bardís listed as the original sarghum malt beer), but was disappointed once I had. This must be what beer squeezed from the dirty bar rag after St. Patrickís Day or Mardi Gras tastes like. Someone described the aroma as that of wet bread, which could not be more accurate.

If you must have a gluten free "beer", then maybe itís not so bad. Otherwise this is very metalic and artificial tasting. It is sweet, like splenda, and the finish is like very hard tap water. Not recommended to real beer drinkers.
