Rating #300. I did have another beer saved for this one, but WTF, itís only ratings, right? Bottle from Total Wine. This is another surprise, a marginally decent beer from A-B. Nice taste, color and aroma, did they hire someone new to work there? They can f@ck up a lot of beers, but they did pretty good with this one.

Pours a three finger white head that vanishes leaving no lace. Crystal clear amber color. Strong carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Flavor has a hop sharpness, sweetness in background. Drying soapy aftertaste. Glad I bought only one bottle. $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Capitol Convenience Concord, NH.

From a bottle purchased at "Kellerís IGA" in Cincinnati, Ohgio - I have a bias against all A-B products, but this brew wanít so bad... it actually had hints of taste!

Different. Reminds me a little of cherries. Nice hoppiness, a bit thin, sweet, a lingering superlight molasses-y flavor. Itís crisp and refreshing. That is is an A-B beer AND has flavor is amazing, though it doesnít have a lot of substance. Iíd drink it again, and Iím not wheat-intolerant.

Nice light smell. Like wheat? Like an amber ale - "malty" with some hop? Certainly not that corny Bud aroma. Light amber color with a white head that went fast. Medium mouthfeel. Starts very nice (almost like a light amber ale), then gets a burst of sweetness, followed by a complex of unfamiliar flavors. The finish seems fairly balanced with hop, dominated by a strange flavor that must be the sorghum. Makes me think of Mongozo. Better than Bud any time.

bottle - Pours light amber with a very thin head and very little aroma. This beer is A-Bís effort to provide their too mild beer to people with celiac disease. As expected from A-B, itís not all that good, but it actually seems to have a bit more flavor (itís sweet) than Bud. Not terrible.

[12oz Bottle - Top Foods] A decent flavor with e some odd flavors I am not used to. A deep brunt coper color with a light head. This is a sweet flavor and the use of sorghum is making this a very good beer for those who can not have malts. Good job.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 Bottle in pint glass. Burnt-orange, clear liquid with large-bubbled, 5 finger head. Aroma is clean banana popsicle. Taste is initially mild apple cider,with slight banana. I donít really taste any hops, but it isnít a bad thing. Interesting offering from A-B, probably the best I have had from them. The bottle says there is no barley or wheat in this beer, just sorghum. It is a bit sweet, and definitely not a session brew, but Iím glad they made a sorghum beer. To me it is better than any beer A-B brews with barley.

Fresh bottle consumed on 3/4/07
Clear golden-peach body is lightly bubbly, producing an off-white head that is small and shows moderate retention, little/no lacing.
Sorghum is easily distinguishable in the nose (gives a light buttertoffee/graham cracker/vanilla sort of aroma/flavor) and provides light sweetness, while citric hops are actually apparent, though lightly so. What I dont find is any DMS or diacetyl OR acetyldehyde. Wow, thatís a first. The sorghum gives a slight roundness to the aroma as well, that, while perhaps not so appropriate for a pale lager (which should be all about crispness), is still pleasantly surprising when taking in to account that this is a Bud product. And hop bitterness and light yeast apparency do add enough dry/crispness on the finish to make it passable. Medium strength of aroma, no alcohol noted.
Big sorghum flavor emulates the nose, with more residual sweetness than you usually get from AB. Buttertoffee is strong, with light dough and biscuits towards the finish. Gentle hop bitterness helps control the malt, some very light lemon and orange flavors, with a touch of grassiness. Carbonation is moderate, and while not tight or engaging, is at least not overly aggressive. The only slight flaw that I noticed was a bit of a metallic flavor on the end.
