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.

Bottle... Clear, light golden lager with a small, creamy, white head. Fairly rich, interesting aroma... grainy and malty with notes of caramel and hay. Malty, but clean, flavor with light notes of caramel and unsalted butter. Just a whisper of molasses. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, clean finish. Much better than most (within the style) brewed with barley malt. Iím anxious to see what other styles they are able to brew with sorgham malt.

12oz Bottle] A deep amber color with a light head. This had a very unique flavor somewhat fruity in nature and seemed to have a slight lager feel. Easy to drink this is a going to be a chick brew in the long run.

Bottled as Bardís Gold from Bardís Tale Beer Co., Utica NY. Sky blue double B label. The RB listing was very difficult to find, but this must be it. Weak honey aroma. Dark gold color, clear, no head. Honey and light wood flavor. Woody lemon grass finish. Great for a gluten free brew. Itís comforting to know that if I ever develop an allergy to wheat or gluten, Iíll still be able to enjoy a good beer.

One of the best Gluten free beers Iíve had. It is sorghum and has better palate than typical rice beers with great malt tone. ABV 4.7, IBU 20.5, SRM 11

Packaged as "Bards" I canít say it was terrible, but itís nothing worth writing home about either. I had not had a sorghum beer before, so I had low expectations whcih this actually beat. The aroma was pleasant and a bit fruity, with and odd tinge to it Iím assuming is sorghum. Very thin head. Flavor is much lighter than the aroma would indicate, not unpleasant but very unremarkable. As afar as the gluten-free beers go, proably the best Iíve had to date, and as a side note, one of only two truly "paleo" beers Iíve seen - the other gluten free beers usually contain other grain products - corn syrup, rice or corn extract, etc...

Didnít know what to expect. Not bad. Falls in the light lager category. It is a very mild beer with a dampened grain flavor and a light mouthfeel, soft carbonation and slightly sweet. There is an equally moderate bittering in the finish. Lawnmower beer.
