12 oz bottle
Moderate pour in a mug
Recent brewing, crossed 05/07.
Poured a clear reddish amber with an average fizzy mostly diminishing slightly off-white head.
Smelt of real beer! Some definite grassy hops with some odd grain smell. Toasted grain, but different, more green like...
Taste was upfront moderate bitter toasted grain and hops with light sweet caramel followed by a moderate bitter soya vegetable and sweet grain and biter grassy hops on a short finish.
Palate was light bodied, fizzy, watery and moderately astringent.
Overall, this is great! Iím not sure what kind of flavors can be obtained from sorghum, but the fact that it exists open a whole new world. Nothing bold, rich or complex. Just new. Itís like drinking a beer for the first time. Just different... hogan873 (451) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Not bad. I once home-brewed a beer that was similar to this. Aroma and taste are slightly sweet, hints of syrup. Gets a little sticky towards the end. A decent effort by AB. kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - MAY 24, 2007
(bottle) reddish amber with quickly fading head. Slightly sweet aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet, hints of fruit. Not something Iíd normally drink, but really not that bad - for people with celiac disease this provides a nice addition to their menu options. Hats off to A-B for brewing it - I hope they keep it up. jcwattsrugger (12418) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2007

Not much aroma. Taste is funky fruit and sourness. Not something I would recommend to anyone other than those that have to drink this stuff. JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Bottle at Scranton Wilkes Barre Yankees PNC Field. Negative reviews donít phase me as this seems well crafted with the sorghum giving it more of a clean earthly feel and it seems to have a mild brownish sweetness which doesnít offend or enlighten. It isnít something Iíd go back to but its better than then other gluten-free beers Iíve sampled as far as sweetness is concerned. This is an easy drinker.

The reviews on this site always crack me up. How many horible reviews would we see if anheuser hadnít adverstied that this lager was made with sorghum instead of barley? This wasínt as bad as the lousy macros that A-B puts out. Iím impressed they made a decent beer outta the stuff Stellaaaa (270) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 12, 2007
It has a light sugary aroma and a golden colour. There was more or less no head. As for taste, it tastes like sugary syrup water. Overall, Iíd say this beer is no better than plain Bud Lite, but itís a lot more expensive. Save your money if you can, because this isnít worth the price unless you have coeliac disease and just canít drink anything else.

Not too bad for an AB beer. Aroma of corn and must. Pour was a dark brown with no head. Taste was grain with a strong malt presence. Very sugary and a little syrupy but with a lighter and thinner mouthfeel if that makes sense. A lot of metal in the aftertaste. I was expecting a new experience but was left with an average one
