From a twist-off 12 oz. bottle with a coded freshness date in the lower right hand corner of label, sampled at a cool cellar temperature in a pint glass. Poured a reddish copper with a foamy white head that dissipates into a thin soapy lacing. A floral and fruity aroma with a light sweet maltiness, sort of a mix of white sugar and caramel. Good carbonation and a sweetly crisp, dryish, thin, smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Sweet and sugary taste, fructose sweet along with a hard candy type sugariness, you can taste the hops, which makes it better than many sorghum beers I’ve tried, a mildly herbal, spicy bitterness, and a dry sweet fructose, spicy finish, there is a lingering ferment sugary alcohol flavor in the aftertaste that I find to be a bit unpleasant. For a sorghum beer, not that bad, which means it’s not awful, but I really want to try the two new sorghum beers from Sprecher, I have a feeling they will set the tone for this style of beer.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Red amber color with regular to small cream head. Nose of malty grains...but not really grains. Taste had a surprising maltish flavor along with light hops and some vege flavors at the end.

Not bad at all. This is the third beer I have tried that was brewed with sorghum... It is interesting and is worth trying just to say you did it.

Redbridge 12 oz bottle Moderate pour in a mug Recent brewing, crossed 05/07. Poured a clear reddish amber with an average fizzy mostly diminishing slightly off-white head. Smelt of real beer! Some definite grassy hops with some odd grain smell. Toasted grain, but different, more green like... Taste was upfront moderate bitter toasted grain and hops with light sweet caramel followed by a moderate bitter soya vegetable and sweet grain and biter grassy hops on a short finish. Palate was light bodied, fizzy, watery and moderately astringent. Overall, this is great! I’m not sure what kind of flavors can be obtained from sorghum, but the fact that it exists open a whole new world. Nothing bold, rich or complex. Just new. It’s like drinking a beer for the first time. Just different...

Not bad. I once home-brewed a beer that was similar to this. Aroma and taste are slightly sweet, hints of syrup. Gets a little sticky towards the end. A decent effort by AB.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - MAY 24, 2007
(bottle) reddish amber with quickly fading head. Slightly sweet aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet, hints of fruit. Not something I’d normally drink, but really not that bad - for people with celiac disease this provides a nice addition to their menu options. Hats off to A-B for brewing it - I hope they keep it up.

Not much aroma. Taste is funky fruit and sourness. Not something I would recommend to anyone other than those that have to drink this stuff.

Bottle at Scranton Wilkes Barre Yankees PNC Field. Negative reviews don’t phase me as this seems well crafted with the sorghum giving it more of a clean earthly feel and it seems to have a mild brownish sweetness which doesn’t offend or enlighten. It isn’t something I’d go back to but its better than then other gluten-free beers I’ve sampled as far as sweetness is concerned. This is an easy drinker.
