2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Packaged as "Bards" I canít say it was terrible, but itís nothing worth writing home about either. I had not had a sorghum beer before, so I had low expectations whcih this actually beat. The aroma was pleasant and a bit fruity, with and odd tinge to it Iím assuming is sorghum. Very thin head. Flavor is much lighter than the aroma would indicate, not unpleasant but very unremarkable. As afar as the gluten-free beers go, proably the best Iíve had to date, and as a side note, one of only two truly "paleo" beers Iíve seen - the other gluten free beers usually contain other grain products - corn syrup, rice or corn extract, etc...
