Pours a clear dull gold. No head or lacing. Aromas are barely distinguishable. Has a lager-like mouthfeel with little to no taste besides sour malts. If all you can drink is gluten free beer, this will suffice. But it’s really quite bad. DeanF (2647) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
Drank out of a bottle in a random airport somewhere around the world. I really had no problem with the beer, it had a decent nutty flavour with a good mouthfeel. This is one of those beers that could really fall off a cliff in terms of quality but in fact is quite decent and drinkable by any measure. ibaconi (4) - Richmond, USA - APR 16, 2014 does not count
Had no idea what to expect. I was looking for a gluten-free beer for my retail shop. So far, any gluten free product I’ve sampled (all in the world of breads) rates somewhere between poor and awful, so I was quite surprised by this beer. It’s certainly nothing to write home about, but it’s decent. Slightly better than some of the popular comercial beers... Budweiser springs to mind.
Has the appearance of sparkling apple juice, including the lack of head. The flavor is fairly flat, but certainly not offensive. There is a vegetal quality to it, but this is not unpleasant, just unusual. This beer certainly doesn’t leave me craving another, but then neither do most of the popular commercial beers. Could use a bit more hop. michaelinwa (656) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2014
Foamy, carbonated, golden pour. Big head that goes fast. Aroma is grain, and somewhat malt like. Flavor is light, mildly grainy, thin. Even in a world of mediocre GF beers, this one is unimpressive. ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2014
This actually looks like a lager. It looks very light bodied, tons of carbonation in this sucker, with a light gold color and a very airy, bubbly off-white head. It looks very clear and has a nice color, thanks, I’m sure, to the sorghum. The aroma is of a lager, lightly sweet with maybe a hint of sorghum – not much else. The flavor is a little musky. It has an almost muted palate. There’s not much to it, other than, well – it’s like a lager with a little sorghum flavor. The flavor isn’t bad. It’s just very subdued. It has a very thin, weak palate, but with some sorghum in the finish. My wife says it’s soapy and thin, with not much flavor. She also says it has a pretty color, alot of effervescence, and it was hard to taste because of its bubbly nature.

12 oz bottle good for the gluten free crowd but that is about it not very good BeerInHeaven (500) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2014
pours clear rich gold with a small quickly fading white head. no distinct aroma, just a faint bread. Tastes crisp with a little sweetness. slightly sweet finish. no real hop presence. Slipstream (2720) - USA - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle labeled "Bard’s Gold" with the slogan "Discuss it over a Bard’s." It looks like most of the raters think there is not much to discuss. This is a sorghum brew from upstate New York (not California). Dense, reddish-brown pour. A slightly funky aroma of yeast and tangy, floral hops. It is fairly thin, but flavorful enough - citrusy sourness dominates, along with a little allspice, coriander, and sorghum. Pretty good. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Poured golden yellow with a thin white head that disappeared immediately. Fruity aromas, sweet flavors with some bitterness. Not sure who thought this was a good idea. Ugh... AbbeyRoade (562) - Missouri, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Bleh! Like a horrible champagne mixed with grape juice. Just poor quality and very very dry.
