Mine too was sold as "Bard’s Gold" so I hope this is the right beer. Aroma and flavor were both sweet and malty. Much better than the other sorghum beer I tried (Redbridge from Anheuser-Busch)... had a genuineness that Redbridge didn’t have. Nothing special but pretty good none the less.

Shocker, this beer gets a poor review from ratebeer. This is only the second grain-free beer I’ve tried and I’d like to tell you its terrible but I can’t. It your basic light lager with a bit of sweetness and it’s still better than Bud,MIller, or Coors. Don’t let the geeky fantasy game name throw it, it’s not bad.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, light yellow with good carbonation and a slight head. Aroma is faint, mostly grass, bread. Flavor is...interesting. Nothing special, hints of faint hops, grassy, slight sweetness. Finish lingers a bit too long. Not something I’d ever try again, but for those that can’t tolerate gluten, perhaps this is the beer for you. Sorry you’re just missing out on a truly flavorful experience. pellegjr (396) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Pours pristine gold w/ a moderate effervescent head, aroma is light bitter hops, flavor is lightly sweet with a small bitter Saaz bite at finish DrinkinWell (389) - - JUN 3, 2014
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.

If you must have a gluten free "beer", then maybe it’s not so bad. Otherwise this is very metalic and artificial tasting. It is sweet, like splenda, and the finish is like very hard tap water. Not recommended to real beer drinkers. GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - APR 3, 2011
I was really looking forward to trying this beer (I had the Bard’s listed as the original sarghum malt beer), but was disappointed once I had. This must be what beer squeezed from the dirty bar rag after St. Patrick’s Day or Mardi Gras tastes like. Someone described the aroma as that of wet bread, which could not be more accurate. krysztofar (345) - belleville, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2007
pours a light golden with a thin white head. aroma is faint and hard to place. taste is sweetish almost like honey. maybe the high sugar of sorghum. has a touch of hops on the end with plenty of carbonation. some strange earthy/ vegetal notes in there. glad i don’t live gluten free SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2008
From Bottle. Poured golden. Very fizzy, bubbly white head, that dissipated very fast. Aroma of grain, and corn, and semi-sweet. Flavor was like a sweet bread, spiciness in the end with lingering aftertaste like butterscotch. Light bodied. Over the top carbonation. Texture was light and watery. scoobysnak (333) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Different is how I would explain this one. The sorghum doesn’t give that different of a actual taste but somehow the aftertaste was somewhat unpleasant to me. If your into this kind of beer it is good I suppose. Otherwise pretty bland.
