2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Wild Oats, Cincy. Poured dark clear amber with a large off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate balanced malt and hop aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced flavor with a bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is better than my expectations.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wow... A-B really actually took time to come up with this one. Pours a cloudy brown, with red hints. Has a good thick white head and a ring around the outside of the glass maintains through every pull on the beer. Lacks any lacing, which is dissapointing. Has a sweet, malty scent. Nice fruit flavor, with slight hop bite and something else in the ending. Could be Sorghum. I am incredibly impressed. Much better than that Red Hook crap A-B tries to sell as real beer.
As I scan through other ratings I feel many people see the A-B crest on the label and automatically feel they CANNOT rate it above a 2.5. Perhaps I am rating it high, as it is made by A-B, and it is drinkable...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Dusty blonde pour with a thick, foamy white head. Nose is more grain and mustiness. Tastes has a little fruity zest/tartness and some light hop bitters. As far as the sorham goes, I didnít have any expectations here, but was not surprised either.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet, candied, chemical aroma. Light bronze, clear, twistoff, fair label. Astringent, metallic, molasses notes, a little briny and black pepper, moderately hoppy. Interesting. Fiishes out with some astringency. Thanks to PorterPounder for saving me the trouble of buying the 6.

Light clear amber, fizzy head. Aroma of Bud. is this a Bud not made out of corn?? Very unique flavor. slight fruit, (maybe cherry candy) very crisp and light. If I had an allergy to gluten, this would be my beer of choice. But I donít, so itís not!!! A little too light on the palate.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden w/ a medium sized spritzy froth that dissappeared very quickly leavng a strand of brewers lace. Aromas of crispy malt. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. Very favorfull, crisp, clean, refreshing. It has a semi fruity character. Finishes clean and crisp w/ a lingering bitter hop. Not bad. Overall: I am impressed with the outcome of this brew. I like this better than most Samuel Adams stuff, actually.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a crisp, thin, yet dense amber. Aroma is sweet cherry, like a Ludenís cough drop. Bitter fruity malt with leaves round out the flavors. Finishes with a sour film that only sours more as it warms. Average mouthfeel. No more sorghum beer, please.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour is a dark yellow with a white head. Aroma is very sweet with some hops showing up. Flavor kinda weak with some bitterness and a easy going sweetness. Canít really put this one over the top but as far as sourgum beers goes i would say this is one of the better ones i have had.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pours a light golden color with a thick white head and decent lacing. Nose of sharp acidic hops and a husky grain, kinda like millet smells, but i guess itís just the sorghum. The flavor is a bit tinny and thin with a lot of proteins and tart notes on the palate. Finishes husky, not horrible for something with no malt in it. My first sorghum beer, low expectations, so iím impressed.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: The aroma is light with hints of apple, citrus, and a touch of hops. It pours a transparent golden-amber with a small white head that diminishes quickly. The flavor starts with light apple that lingers throughout and finishes with light grassy hops with a hint of roastiness and sourness. It resemble an amber ale more than a pale lager to me.
