3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bardís The Original Sorghum Beer has a medium, white head and a clear, gold-amber appearance, with a good amount of streaming bubbles and essentially no lacing. The aroma is of syrupy-sweet grain, and the flavor is of that, as well as grass, a slight bitterness, and a subtle, underlying health-food store taste. Mouthfeel is light watery, and Bardís The Original Sorghum Beer finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and drinkable. No unusual off flavors, here. I found it to be surprisingly good. RJT

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from The Beerhive in Pittsburgh with a label reading "Bardís Sorgum Malt Beer" and no indication of "Dragonís Gold" anywhere. The sorghum is either the best thing ever or unpleasant and disgusting --- I canít tell from just one tasting. Otherwise, things are a little weak overall with very little to be fond of in tasting impressions. Donít pass on one, but prepare yourself for a unique tasting experience.

I have tryed one other sorghum beer, besides this one. And this one blew the other away. It was slightly darker than expected with a light caramel color. The taste reminded me of a wheat beer, but with a differant sort of grassyness to it. Nice and cloudy with a good amount of flavor in every sip, truly something different in the beer world.

Orange with peach colour. Peaches, mandarin, sugar cane. and (even though it contains none) rye on the nose. Peaches again, this time upon mouth entry. Caramel follows with some wild flower, black olives and a strange herb like presence of which I canít name....perhaps its the Sorghum? Aftertaste is pleasently malty but a little bit skunky too. Crisp and refreshing on the palate. I am quite impressed by this strange brew, and becoming more and more a fan of gluten-free products!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold/straw color with a medium sized snow white head atop it. Lace and retention are moderate. Nose is citrusy, lightly grainy. Light body, crisp, somewhat creamy. More of ale like mouthfeel than a lager. Is this due to their using sorghum as opposed to barley? Light citrus flavors, spicey and backed by light pale malt flavors. Never expierenced any DMS like others mentioned in their ratings. Finish is dry, quick with a pleasing little bite. If the word sorghum was,nt on the label you would think this was a regular beer brewed with barley. An interesting beer but not worth a repeat at $11 a sixer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold color with no head. Very odd aroma that struck me as bubble gum mixed with freshly cut grass. Pretty appealing. Dry hops taste with a clear wooden finish. Different, but pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden-orange with a thin head. Aroma is sweet, bits of coffee and chocolate over a floral aroma, a slight skunk. Flavor is sharp at first, then becomes very honey-ish with bits of lemon and a thin aftetaste. As a lover of honey, this hits the spot. A good hot weather beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale gold w/ a shallow spritzy froth. Aroma of bitter malt and a hint of butterfinger. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are zesty, clean, crisp, and refreshing. I detect on the slightest detail a smokey, spicey, fruit quality w/ a sliver of tartness. Tastes lke beer. I like it. Like a good pilsener. Finish has a moderate bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 donít know what sorghum tastes like, itís like bitter molasses. Iím 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.
