Pours the color of cream soda with a head that goes away as fast as a soda. Aroma is almost non existent, but there is a whisper of caramel sauce and raw bread dough. Something is trying to bitter than sweetness, but not much. Very thin brew. I am glad I tried it, but thank goodness I can drink barley and wheat.

Thin yellow color with a weak head. Malty Bready nose. Clean watery taste, no real finish. Not horrid.

Amber color with a medium thick and fizzy off-white head that burns off quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grain and bready malt. Light-bodied. Better than other macro brews but nothing to write home about.

12oz bottle from some Mexican joint on Fulton St w Erica, drank w my tacos. There is an artificially, industrially, skunky metallic sweetness to it that makes it almost undrinkable to me. However, not rating it as harshly as I could b/c I think it’s good that people make attempts to brew "beers" that glutards can (try to) enjoy. Long way to go, of course.

bottle - pours clear and light caramel with light head and no lacing. Aroma is what I can only assume is the sorghum. It’s like candy and quite distinct. taste is bitter. Unique. Metallic aftertaste.

probstblueribbon (2746) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2011
12 fl oz bottle from Bear World (Watertown), served almost cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear light amber with a fair, fleeting light tan head. Aroma: Light, slightly peppery grain, hints of warm spices somehow, vaguely earthy and British, a little pome fruit, wee hints of caramel/toffee, weak but not bad. Palate: Medium body, fairly aggressive carbonation. Flav.: A bit tastier than the nose admits, light sweet, slightly fruity biscuit, hints of caramel and wee hints of spices, some old apple juice notes, not bad; dry with basically no bitterness and a slightly astringent, vaguely fruity finish with some minerals.

For a gluten-free beer from the “big guy”, this is quite drinkable.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Crystal clear yellow-gold pour with a fizzy initial head that dissipates to a very thin ring. Kind of a nasty grain nose. Thin fizzy palate. Taste is metallic and grain. Not good at all.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Color was caramel amber. Just about ¾ inches of head. Light lacing on the top that dissipated very quickly. No film on the sides. Smelled iron, cereal notes, grains and corn. It really wanted to be a red, but it lacked a lot to do it. Couldn’t figure out the taste, but my sister-in-law described it as sorghum. It had a syrupy finish. Some berries were in there, too. Medium body. Average carbonation. The syrupy feel really wore on me. Slick texture I’d say. Abrupt finish. Not a bad beer, but I obviously wouldn’t seek it out at a bar.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with a small, white head. Little aroma, just a hint of grain. Watery with mostly a sweet, grainy flavor. Possibly a hint of tart fruit in the finish.

Perhaps the worst beer I have ever sampled. My wife is on a gluten-free diet and this is now they only beer she can drink - a pity. There is almost no aroma to this sorghum beer. It’s only non-negative attribute is its appearance, a clear amber to brown liquid with flat head. The taste is sour with an acrid after taste. Avoid unless you must be on a gluten-free diet.
