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.

VAAC (86) - Middlebury, Indiana, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Better than the average rating suggests. Unique taste up front but familiar to anyone accustomed to major brewery American beers in its finish.

hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2006
Bottle... Clear, light golden lager with a small, creamy, white head. Fairly rich, interesting aroma... grainy and malty with notes of caramel and hay. Malty, but clean, flavor with light notes of caramel and unsalted butter. Just a whisper of molasses. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, clean finish. Much better than most (within the style) brewed with barley malt. I’m anxious to see what other styles they are able to brew with sorgham malt.

Clear, pale gold pour with a small, white head. The aroma has very faint hops. It has a light, crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a quick, refreshing finish.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2007
12oz Bottle] A deep amber color with a light head. This had a very unique flavor somewhat fruity in nature and seemed to have a slight lager feel. Easy to drink this is a going to be a chick brew in the long run.

obguthr (6344) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Bottled as Bard’s Gold from Bard’s Tale Beer Co., Utica NY. Sky blue double B label. The RB listing was very difficult to find, but this must be it. Weak honey aroma. Dark gold color, clear, no head. Honey and light wood flavor. Woody lemon grass finish. Great for a gluten free brew. It’s comforting to know that if I ever develop an allergy to wheat or gluten, I’ll still be able to enjoy a good beer.

One of the best Gluten free beers I’ve had. It is sorghum and has better palate than typical rice beers with great malt tone. ABV 4.7, IBU 20.5, SRM 11

Packaged as "Bards" I can’t say it was terrible, but it’s nothing worth writing home about either. I had not had a sorghum beer before, so I had low expectations whcih this actually beat. The aroma was pleasant and a bit fruity, with and odd tinge to it I’m assuming is sorghum. Very thin head. Flavor is much lighter than the aroma would indicate, not unpleasant but very unremarkable. As afar as the gluten-free beers go, proably the best I’ve had to date, and as a side note, one of only two truly "paleo" beers I’ve seen - the other gluten free beers usually contain other grain products - corn syrup, rice or corn extract, etc...
