2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hmm.. a friend told me this beer was "earthy" - I donít get that impression at all. Pours a thin, watery bronze color with very little head. Aroma is not horrible, but not great - pungent, but not in the most appealing way. My first impression of the flavor is metal, but it later takes on a decent hop character with slight maltiness, but unfortunately is not balanced or very pleasing. I was intrigued by the thought of a sorghum beer, and I donít dislike this beer, but I donít think I like it too much either. Itís just OK.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smeels like slightly sour metallic tap water. Not an appearling aroma at all. Body was thin and highly carbonated but had a nice sharp hop finish. Not sure what sorghum tastes like, but there is a very light malt character with a slight sweetness. Really not bad at all, except for the unappealng aroma.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel and fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of light bread and a hint of carmel with a crisp clean finish. This was a VERY watery tasting beer!

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.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
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!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
