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.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
12oz bottle at the American styles tasting. Pale amber with an off-white head that has very good retention. Must be the sorghum. Sawdust and general dry wood aroma with a touch of fruitiness. Dry, metallic, oddly spicy flavor with a rough, uncomfortable, burn plastic finish. Uncomfortably astringent. If this was my only gluten free option Iíd happily become a wine drinker (assuming I was gluten intolerant).

12 oz bottle..was interested to try a sorghum based beeer.. pours what looks like a cream soda color and pop-like head. nose it light watery molasses, sugary. tastes like experimental pop..with hop bittering..thin body.. makes for a bad soda, and worse beer..

Poured golden yellow with a thin white head that disappeared immediately. Fruity aromas, sweet flavors with some bitterness. Not sure who thought this was a good idea. Ugh...

Pours a clear dull gold. No head or lacing. Aromas are barely distinguishable. Has a lager-like mouthfeel with little to no taste besides sour malts. If all you can drink is gluten free beer, this will suffice. But itís really quite bad.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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!.
