12 oz bottle split with Pwn3d. Body is golden brown. Aroma is caramel and malt. The taste is malt, watered down soda taste - not good. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2008
12-oz. Pours a brilliant crystal clear coppery medium amber with verrrry little grayish head. Nasty cherry nose, smells synthetic. Mostly butterscotch on the nose, but the artificial fruit is hard to forget once you notice it. Medium body, odd for a lager, and somewhat fizzy. More weird phony butterscotch and cherry on the mid-palate. If you’re allergic to barley malt, and this is your only other beer option, for god’s sake, start learning about scotch or red wine.

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, barely there tight white head. Aroma of butterscotch. Flavor has some of the same butterscotch notes with some ripening vegetable funkiness and a touch of molasses. Reminds me somewhat of malta. Somewhat sticky, but lifeless mouthfeel. Better than most sorghum beers - but glad I do not have to resort to these for medicinal reasons. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 15, 2008
Bottle marked 2/12/08. Pours with a fizzy white head that goes leeaving a clear penny colored body. No lacing. Aroma of cheap malt, cheese rinds and plums. Taste is sweet with coconut, nuts and granmanier (in a very poor marriage of the three). Very sweet with soggy malts at the finish. Fizzy and dry.

12oz Bottle pours out clear gold topped with a white head. A little odd??? and not very good. Thanks any way Jordan Ernest (7698) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal, caramel, wort), with light notes of DMS and plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Very raw and crude. Maybe a touch better then the state it was in at GABF 2004, but still...damn. Hard to stomach. One word: Redbridge. Sledutah (7542) - Utah, USA - JUL 20, 2011

I wasn’t expecting much and I wasn’t disappointed!
The good: Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head and good lacing
The medium: Aroma is bready with spices
The bad: Taste is very bisquity with some sourness
Footbalmed the rest of the glass. For some reason I also bought another sorghum beer at the same time. I’m looking forward (not) to trying it.

Aroma repulsive band aid aroma that followed up with spoiled fruits. I had hard time to sniff this again just to make sure how bad was it and that does not happen very often.
Appearance dark golden with lighter top. Fizzy mid. 2-
Flavor and Palate : After being shocked with its aroma I had my reservations to have sip of it. Result was similar – wide array of off flavors, green apple, diacetyl, phenols, crazy bad funk in there. This must be one of worst creations ever made in beer world. My sample was extremely bad.
Plenty of hops in the aroma here. They really jump out. Flavor is a mix of corn, honey and grapefruit and there is a slight bitter aftertaste. There is slight carbonation visible in the glass but it seems to create bubbles in the mouth.
