2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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, Iím sure, to the sorghum. The aroma is of a lager, lightly sweet with maybe a hint of sorghum Ė not much else. The flavor is a little musky. It has an almost muted palate. Thereís not much to it, other than, well Ė itís like a lager with a little sorghum flavor. The flavor isnít bad. Itís just very subdued. It has a very thin, weak palate, but with some sorghum in the finish. My wife says itís 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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle labeled "Bardís Gold" with the slogan "Discuss it over a Bardís." 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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
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...

Bleh! Like a horrible champagne mixed with grape juice. Just poor quality and very very dry.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
pours a clear golden color with a small white head that dissipates quickly. the aroma is husky and the taste is where this beer goes south fast. maybe its because i have never had a gluten free beer so i guess i could be biased but this beer is not good. the taste is syrupy. i would not recommend.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a crisp clear golden yellow. No head at all. Aroma of freshly mowed grass. Comes close to malt flavor but a bit cidery. Not much flavor at all. Very thin mouthfeel. Finishes clean and slightly bitter. This is the best of the gluten free beers I've had.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2015 The appearance of this beer is a deep golden color with a very, very small white head, and the aroma is really sweet with some yeast scents. The taste is quite sour and a touch of sweetness, but the palate is really unpleasant due to the light body, thin and slick texture, soft carbonation, and a really, really sour and off-putting finish.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle. Bottled 6/19/2013. Clear golden color, with a minimal white head. Apricot, peach flavor up front, with an olive aftertaste. Seeing as how the description compared this to macro-lagers, this is surprising. Lighter body. Sharper, stronger carbonation, kind of biting. Moderate bitter taste, lightly tart. Not very enjoyable nor easy-drinking. On the upside, the more I drink of it, the less offensive it becomes, the more I get used to the whole thing. There is a general cidery quality to the texture, though, not as full bodied as most beers.
