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.

I didn’t know what to expect out of a sorghum beer, but i loved the video game the name is based off of so i had to try it. It tastes a little like coffee or molasses, but goes down VERY smooth.

Hey, this is pretty good. Has a bit of a coffee aftertaste, though I wouldn’t recommend you drink this in the morning.

Bard’s 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 Bard’s The Original Sorghum Beer finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and drinkable. No unusual off flavors, here. I found it to be surprisingly good. RJT

12 oz bottle from The Beerhive in Pittsburgh with a label reading "Bard’s Sorgum Malt Beer" and no indication of "Dragon’s Gold" anywhere. The sorghum is either the best thing ever or unpleasant and disgusting --- I can’t tell from just one tasting. Otherwise, things are a little weak overall with very little to be fond of in tasting impressions. Don’t 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 can’t 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!

Not bad at all, a little tart. it is a sorghum beer so you ave to change your rating considerations.

sloth (2936) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2005
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.

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.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 6, 2006
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.
