bottle- remarkably better than I was expecting- some noticeable hop flavor, and very clean. Not at all sour or sharp as some suggest sorghum beers tend to be. Drinkable, and way better than Bud, one of AB’s other products.

It’s hard for me to even think of this as beer; it resembles beer only in the shape and presentation of the bottle, and the fact that it’s a starchy drink with a similar alcohol content as beer. If you’ve tasted sorghum syrup, the aroma is more like that than anything else. It’s actually not bad though...I don’t like sorghum syrup because it’s sweet, but this drink is only a little sweet, and is pleasant. The aroma is interesting. Worth trying. Just don’t expect it to taste remotely like a beer.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a refrigerated glass. Pours a medium clear amber with medium white head. Some lacing, high carbonation, and nice body. Taste is nice and malty. If I had celiac disease, I could get by drinking this.

Clear, gold pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma is malty with notes of bread. It has a light, thin body with average carbonation. The taste is sweet from start to finish. This beer is actually a little better than I expected.

Pours flat with no head. No metallic lager taste! Almost a sweet aftertaste.

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.

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 don’t, so it’s not!!! A little too light on the palate.

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.

Bottle. Corn malt aroma - hint of the sorghum. Medium amber with small head. Slight sweet corn malt aroma with a mild bitter finish and moderate carbonation and acidity - really don’t get much of a sorghum flavor with this which is probably a plus for many people but I enjoy it. Nevertheless, this is a nice drinking beer and as others have stated, a Godsend for beer drinkers on a gluten free diet. I personally wouldn’t mind more sorghum beers on the market.

Not too bad for an AB beer. Aroma of corn and must. Pour was a dark brown with no head. Taste was grain with a strong malt presence. Very sugary and a little syrupy but with a lighter and thinner mouthfeel if that makes sense. A lot of metal in the aftertaste. I was expecting a new experience but was left with an average one
