I was lucky to find a single of this at the LCBO... as I am not a big fan of gluten-free beer. "The Original Sorghum Malt Beer" pours a golden colour with a foamy white cap that does last and gives out soapy lacing. The aroma is quite strong for this, with lots of sweetness (grape juice, honey), hay and hints of burnt plastic. Just really different. The taste is not as strong though, with watered-down apple cider and white grapes. Kind of bland. This one wonít make me a fan, but if gluten is not your thing, Brasseurs Sans Gluten brews the best ones. whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2012
bottle. "Bard*s". clear yellow with a small white head. aroma of grain. some, hay and caramel and of course sorgham. not bad. one of the better sorgham beers Iíve had. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2012
The beer is slightly hazy and appears a light orange color. The aroma offers some sweet, malty fruit, with a hint of candied oranges. Light toffee in the flavor, with some biscuit malt in the taste as well. Sweet fruit is present throughout. Light to medium in body, with moderately low carbonation. A decent choice for those who must have gluten free beer, though not my cup of tea.

Pours a clean straw yellow with a thin fizzy white head. Nose is very light and muted with some grassy and lightly sweet notes. Flavor is light and grassy with a hint of sweetness and a touch of grape flavor. Light bodied and no bitterness. rumproasts (5342) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2012
bottle. light amber with small head. sorghum definitely isnít my thing. everything about this seems slightly off.

Pours a plae gold with a thin, off white head that has good retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma is huge on soghum, some light fruity sweetness, toast and sweat. Flavor is still big on sorghum, a little sweaty, some artificial vanilla and hazelnut flavors, toast, light caramel and light honey floral notes. Palate is light and pretty neutral throughout with a light, somewhat sharp carbonation. The flavor is not too bad, which was a surprise after the pretty unpleasant aroma, decently refreshing. Meh.

Pours amber, with an off-white head.
Taste is sweet sorghum, maybe some apple peel...
Taste is grainy with almost a spice or clove aspect to it.
Not really a fan. berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - AUG 3, 2012
12 oz bottle packaged as Bardís Original Sorghum. Worst beer Iíve ever had. First beer ever I didnít want to finish (I still did). mrossini (34) - - JUL 30, 2012
Not the worst sorghum beer Iíve had, but not good, either. I canít say i like the overall taste very much. The sorghum hits you immediately after putting it in your mouth. The finish is better though. rubbishystuff (2521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2017 Had this packaged as Bardís at Ranallis. I think there should almost be a separate rating category for gluten free beers. Being made with Sorghum it has that thin tinny flavor but then itís not barley malt. Not too bad for what it is. Serving: Bottle
