1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours gold with little head. Some hops and malt aromas. The taste is grainy, with some thiols detected. Medium palate. This one was expensive, and a disappointment.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, with the blue label that says "Bardís The Original Sorghum Beer". Pours a clear gold with a fizzy white head that vanishes within minutes. I think I have yet to find a beer for celiacs that can hold a head. Anyway, low aroma of sweet grain, over-ripe apple, and iodine. Grainy palate that thankfully is less apple-tainted than other sorghum brews Iíve tried, again with a dry iodine note, and a welcome bitterness in the finish. I would group this with the very small number of beers I could actually drink if I were to develop celiac disease.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The label indicates Bardís Gold from Utica. Pours clear caramel with a bubbly off-white head and a light cereal aroma. There is a strange bubble gum flavor with a slightly bitter 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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Golden color with a very weak head. The sorghum is so overpowering, and tatses too much like glue. Itís sweet and smooth. Not what I like in a beer, the sorghum is interesting, and the title is cool thatís about it.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
pours clear golden without a head. loads of phenols, meds, nail polish, pepper, rotten apples and fig juice. prickly, almost aggressive carbonation, light body - very watery. horrid, simply horrid. one of the worst beer ever tasted - would drink any macro instead of this, even the malt-liquorish horrid stuff out there.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours copper with gold edges and loose thin white head lasting a good 40 seconds. The aroma has caramel, light dark fruitiness and a touch of graininess being run down by a wave of brown sugar. The taste begins bubbly sweet with brown sugar and light notes of grainy molasses and caramel. The carbonation gets a bit prickly staving off the overly sweet table sugar and brown sugar like notes. Behind the slick sweetness are mild notes of floral hops, earthy hops and plastic trashbag.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
11/4/10. 12oz bottle labeled "Bardís Original Sorghum Malt Beer." Clear, dark golden pour with a fizzy white head that is gone instantly. Sweet caramel aroma with medicinal properties and a faint booziness. Sweet and slightly spicy flavor with hints of diacetyl, green apples, and medicine. Meh.
