0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle.
Aroma: Metallic. Sour....something, since it canít be malt. I assume thatís the sorghum. Not too appealing.
Appearance: Completely transparent amber. Soda-like head.
Taste: This tastes like club soda. That someone dunked crackers into.
Palate. Extremely thin and watery. Could easily be a soft drink.
Overall: I canít express how glad I am that I donít have a wheat allergy. This stuff is really disappointing.

Didnít think I would like this one...something about "gluten-free sorghum" did not sound real appealing. However it was different in a good way just couldnít put my finger on it. Nice change of pace beer (not a fruity beer) that will do for a meal or just enjoying.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Eeeugh. Pour is a redish amber coloring, clear, tiny head that disappears. Smell was weird malt, nutty, yeasty, and sort of bready but not quite. Taste is similar - malt and yeast, small nutty taste, bizarre balance. Iím not gluten free, so I donít have to drink this, and Iím glad I donít have to cause itís not very good

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.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Nice color but no taste. Canít believe they would call this full-bodied. Weak, bland, tastes like a non-alcoholic beer. Was interested in trying a gluten-free but Iíll keep the gluten, I think.

I got it because I was intrigued by the gluten-free thing. Not a bad beer, not much flavor but it goes down pretty easily. Not something Iíd go back to unless I suddenly find out I canít have gluten. But inoffensive.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale gold pour with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus, malt and apple. Somewhat bland. A little sweetness, a touch of hops. Muddled fruit, with a metallic taste.
Iím glad Iím not gluten intolerant. This beer is tolerable but not fun.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smells very faintly of grain, kind of like budweiser. Pours a crystal clear very pale copper color with a fizzy quickly dissapating head. Taste reminds me of an acorn or wood or something. This is my first sorghum beer, and its a very distinctive flavor. Not unpleasant, just very different from what Im used to.

hah. a surprise beer in our tasting. we all knew right away it didnít belong. still though, not bad. especially for an Anheuser. Actually a really nice beer from them (for once). Just a light everything across the board. It all could have had more and still have been very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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! Iím 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. Itís like drinking a beer for the first time. Just different...
