Bottle. Pours a clear golden body with nice head. Aroma is of grains, light citrus hops. Flavor is metalic, light citrus, with a graininess to it. Better than I expected. AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2007
if i were typing something that made sense, something that wasn’t really all about a toothless armadillo hanging gently in a weeping willow, it would certainly not be a review of this beer. gnartoons.com troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a yellow color with a fizzy white head. Sweet, sticky aroma. Taste is somewhat cidery, with some corn and grassy notes as well. Very little in the way of hops is detectable. Disappointing. jhliesen (833) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Bottle-Pours with a large carbonated head, that dissapates quickly. The color is on the red amber side, dark copper. Just not sure how to place the taste, it had some sticky sweetness to it without much hops. It didn’t taste too bad, but I was happy to finish off the glass and not having to drink more. A plus for being gluten free. JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 9, 2007
Must have a very common label, as I was sure I had had this before. Pours a diluted maple syrup color, with red, brown and gold undertones. Head is fizzily white, and gone after a few seconds. Aroma is sugar, old brownies, faint nutty spice. Taste is sweet, malty, carbonated, and otherwise indistinguishable. It tastes like the base beer for crappy Pumpkin ales. Just through in some cinnamon sticks and cloves, and you’ve got it right here. No wonder Bud was responsible for this.

Thistle aroma. Copper color with an off white head. Tastes of caramel and cherries. Ordinary hop finish. Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Aroma is light, with an even malt/hop balance and some candy sweet notes. Beer has a low retention off-white head, is a light, clear amber. Flavor is a sweet resiny malt forward, with medium bittering and a low hop flavor. Mouthfeel is a corny, grainy texture, medium carb feel and some resiny afteraste. Overall a tough beer to compare, but found it does pair well with food. TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Pour is an amber/orange hue, small white bubble head. Aroma is sweat caramel malts. Body is thin, the nose is very watery, the malt shows up just before the finish. Highly carbonated. An OK offering. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2007
From a twist-off 12 oz. bottle with a coded freshness date in the lower right hand corner of label, sampled at a cool cellar temperature in a pint glass.
Poured a reddish copper with a foamy white head that dissipates into a thin soapy lacing.
A floral and fruity aroma with a light sweet maltiness, sort of a mix of white sugar and caramel.
Good carbonation and a sweetly crisp, dryish, thin, smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel.
Sweet and sugary taste, fructose sweet along with a hard candy type sugariness, you can taste the hops, which makes it better than many sorghum beers I’ve tried, a mildly herbal, spicy bitterness, and a dry sweet fructose, spicy finish, there is a lingering ferment sugary alcohol flavor in the aftertaste that I find to be a bit unpleasant.
For a sorghum beer, not that bad, which means it’s not awful, but I really want to try the two new sorghum beers from Sprecher, I have a feeling they will set the tone for this style of beer.

Red amber color with regular to small cream head. Nose of malty grains...but not really grains. Taste had a surprising maltish flavor along with light hops and some vege flavors at the end.
