COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Golden Sorghum Lager will appeal to beer drinkers who prefer the lighter taste of lagers produced by the major brewers, such as Anheuser-Busch, Coors, Miller, and Heineken. This ale has a light crisp taste to meet the thirst quenching requirements of the lager style while still having enough body to interest the ale drinker during the spring and summer seasons. This beer has low bitterness and a subtle but pleasant hop aroma that will gently caress the senses.

Christian (13680) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2008
Dark golden with a small white head. Sweet grainy malt aroma, with notes of nuts and prunes. Sweet fruity flavour, with a slightly sour fruit juice-like note. Considering the other ratings, it must have been oxidized. And that may not have been a bad thing...

Dogbrick (13144) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2006
This beer is a clear gold color with a thin and fizzy ivory colored head that burns out almost immediately. Very little lacing to be found. Aroma of grain and malt. Light-bodied with a sweet flavor which mainly comes from the sorghum. There is some malt and sour fruit as well. The finish is syrupy sweet with honey and sorghum. Didn’t enjoy this one too much.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2014 Minty licorice. Baaad, I guess I had the regular Bards but it is listed on here as the same as this.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2009
( 12oz bottle ) Pours a clear yellow body with a quickly diminishing spare white head. Aroma of grain, chemicals, florals, and plastic. Flavor of cardboard, metal, light citrus, and plastic.

hopdog (12673) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2007
12oz bottle, bottled on 10/02/06. Poured a medium orangish color with a smaller sized off white head. Very sweet aroma. There’s something there I can’t quite place. Must be the sorghum. Toffee and caramel. Plastic beach balls. Sweet tastes (but not as sweet as the aromas. Caramel. Thin body.

12 oz bottle-pours a foamy white head and gold color. Aroma is funky vegetal, some malt. Taste is medium malt-some sweetness, vegetal, apple cider, faint hops. OK carbonation.

"meh. not a sorghum fan, but wheni saw this was flying bison beer, had to give it a fair shake. i’ll stick to the gluten. Fake, sweetish smell and taste. Slightly refreshing, but with zero complexity or other interesting qualities."

shrubber85 (11452) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2012 Bottle. Sour corn syrup (sorghum) malt aroma. Golden yellow with minimal head. Strong sorghum and grassy malt flavor - for those who don’t know what sorghum tastes like, it’s like bitter molasses. I’m not sure if the moderate bitterness of this beer is due to the sorghum or hops or both. This is a real love/hate beer. I happen to like the sorghum flavor in this beer, but it will probably turn many people off.

3.2
hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2006
Bottle... Clear, light golden lager with a small, creamy, white head. Fairly rich, interesting aroma... grainy and malty with notes of caramel and hay. Malty, but clean, flavor with light notes of caramel and unsalted butter. Just a whisper of molasses. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, clean finish. Much better than most (within the style) brewed with barley malt. I’m anxious to see what other styles they are able to brew with sorgham malt.
