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.

First thing youíll say is wow thats a little different, not bad, but different. Its nice theyíre doing something for people on a gluton-free diet. Very sweet and very finishable.

Clear golden-peach body is lightly bubbly, producing an off-white head that is small and shows moderate retention, little/no lacing.
Sorghum is easily distinguishable in the nose (gives a light buttertoffee/graham cracker/vanilla sort of aroma/flavor) and provides light sweetness, while citric hops are actually apparent, though lightly so. What I dont find is any DMS or diacetyl OR acetyldehyde. Wow, thatís a first. The sorghum gives a slight roundness to the aroma as well, that, while perhaps not so appropriate for a pale lager (which should be all about crispness), is still pleasantly surprising when taking in to account that this is a Bud product. And hop bitterness and light yeast apparency do add enough dry/crispness on the finish to make it passable. Medium strength of aroma, no alcohol noted.
Big sorghum flavor emulates the nose, with more residual sweetness than you usually get from AB. Buttertoffee is strong, with light dough and biscuits towards the finish. Gentle hop bitterness helps control the malt, some very light lemon and orange flavors, with a touch of grassiness. Carbonation is moderate, and while not tight or engaging, is at least not overly aggressive. The only slight flaw that I noticed was a bit of a metallic flavor on the end.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 Bottle in pint glass. Burnt-orange, clear liquid with large-bubbled, 5 finger head. Aroma is clean banana popsicle. Taste is initially mild apple cider,with slight banana. I donít really taste any hops, but it isnít a bad thing. Interesting offering from A-B, probably the best I have had from them. The bottle says there is no barley or wheat in this beer, just sorghum. It is a bit sweet, and definitely not a session brew, but Iím glad they made a sorghum beer. To me it is better than any beer A-B brews with barley.

Aroma is light, with an even malt/hop balance and some candy sweet notes. Beer has a low retention off-white head, is a light, clear amber. Flavor is a sweet resiny malt forward, with medium bittering and a low hop flavor. Mouthfeel is a corny, grainy texture, medium carb feel and some resiny afteraste. Overall a tough beer to compare, but found it does pair well with food.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Budweiser aside this is interesting brew. Pours a nice deep amber gold with healthy head. Sparse lacing that is inconsistent in shape and size. A thinner body with just a touch of hops. A nice fence repariing beer. By the way I bought this six pack in the worldís largest wal mart....golf cart shopping carts!

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.

Overall...not bad. Copper color with small white head. Not much aroma but a faint bitter taste. Nice carbonation.

The beer pours reddish amber with a modest white creamy head with the lace a fine coating upon the glass. Nose is all malt, well a very slight hint of hops, crisp and clean. Start has a pleasant malt profile; sweet with a tinge of bitterness at the back, top is light to moderate in feel. Finish has a determined acidity, the hops very mild but present and accounted for, somewhat sweet, quite dry aftertaste, not a total drain pour, but did not appeal to me, but there certainly could be an audience.

Poured amber with a thin white head. Aroma is very light of citrus, malt, flowers. Flavor is weak but not bad. Fruits, malt and corn. Kinda like bud on steroids. Drinkable.
