UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 The aroma is light and mildly sweet with a faint perfumed soap aroma. Those good soaps that are just for show mind you, not the ones you wash your butt with. It actually smells of in a non-beer kind of way. The bosy is a light amber/copper color with a diminishing white head that starts a thumb thick, fades, but then holds. As pale lagers go it looks pretty inviting. <P> That perfumey sweetness is there int he fore. It tastes a little like patchouli and potpurri mix. Yes, I have tasted both. It finishes with a sort of apple and flower finish. Has a moderately biting carbonation and detactable hops. This is not a bad beer at all. I actually think this puppy would sell well if marketed as a ladies (or guys) who hate beer. That being said....itís good for what it is. My raped tastebuds are screaming for more.

Ernest (6185) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A-B clearly deserves props for this one out of all their pseudo-micro attempts, at the very least for being much more enjoyable than microbrewed sorghum beers like Lakefront New Grist and Bardís Tale Dragonís Gold (both of which are pretty much undrinkable). Surprisingly hoppy and balanced, and nothing particularly foul about it.

Shag (2598) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2007
A clear copper color with a white soapy head. A nice malty aroma with some cherries and caramel present. The flavor is very crisp with a sweet cherry and lemon drop candy flavor. It was much better than I expected from AB.

Unlike any beer I have had before - not radically different, but distinctive since it is brewed using sorghum. The flavor has fruity undertones and a nice jazzy feel, no bitterness.

Tmoney99 (10549) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2007
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.

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...

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.

Aurelius (4107) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2007
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.

unclemattie (4157) - Georgia, USA - JAN 22, 2007
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.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 22, 2007
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.
