5/20/11. 12oz bottle shared by Dustin. Very plain grainy aroma with a plasticy, sour flavor. Nasty.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured clear lighter orange with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up lemon, lighter fruits, and grapefruit along with a soft caramel base.. warmth brought out honeysuckle sweetness.. overall quite pleasant. The flavor took a turn for the worse.. a lightly acidic lemony bitterness prickled the tip of the tongue, and the middle was plagued with odd and unpleasant grainage (mustíve been the sorghum).. sticky vegetal notes and the honeysuckle again on the too-long finish.. a little pine bitterness showed occasionally, but didnít provide much. Light-bodied on the palate and tacky.. higher carbonation.. didnít flow well.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Killearn Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden pour with an amber tint to it - initial white head fades quickly. Not much of an aroma, whatís there is industrial type watery aroma. Slightly metallic flavor with hints of pepper and ripened vegetables. Mouthfeel is slightly stinging. Advise drinking only under Drís orders. Curious that AB chose to put their name on this one but not the Wild Hop and Stone Mill.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear light gold, with a small fizzy head. Smells like smoky corn, slightly better than typical macro lager. Taste is wheaty, slightly woody, but otherwise very bland and corny sweet. Better than Bud or corona, but still a waste of time.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium amber color with a small khaki head. The aroma was light sweet caramel and fruity hops. The flavor was dry and bitter floral hops with a light body and a long bitter hop finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Body is clear amber with a small white head that stays the same size throughout the glass. Aroma is malty. Mouth feel is grainy and unique. Flavor is bitter and very dry. It is a very different taste. The hops mixed with sorghum does some different things. One result is some complexity. Sometimes dark chocolate pops up, sometimes fruit. Complexity is really the only interesting thing about the beer as the flavor is not that good.
