Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel and fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of light bread and a hint of carmel with a crisp clean finish. This was a VERY watery tasting beer! morrdt (715) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2007

Rating #300. I did have another beer saved for this one, but WTF, it’s only ratings, right? Bottle from Total Wine. This is another surprise, a marginally decent beer from A-B. Nice taste, color and aroma, did they hire someone new to work there? They can [email protected]
up a lot of beers, but they did pretty good with this one.
Pours a three finger white head that vanishes leaving no lace. Crystal clear amber color. Strong carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Flavor has a hop sharpness, sweetness in background. Drying soapy aftertaste. Glad I bought only one bottle. $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Capitol Convenience Concord, NH. RJBennett (52) - Hibbing, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2007

From a bottle purchased at "Keller’s IGA" in Cincinnati, Ohgio - I have a bias against all A-B products, but this brew wan’t so bad... it actually had hints of taste!

Different. Reminds me a little of cherries. Nice hoppiness, a bit thin, sweet, a lingering superlight molasses-y flavor. It’s crisp and refreshing. That is is an A-B beer AND has flavor is amazing, though it doesn’t have a lot of substance. I’d drink it again, and I’m not wheat-intolerant. bhensonb (15188) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Nice light smell. Like wheat? Like an amber ale - "malty" with some hop? Certainly not that corny Bud aroma. Light amber color with a white head that went fast. Medium mouthfeel. Starts very nice (almost like a light amber ale), then gets a burst of sweetness, followed by a complex of unfamiliar flavors. The finish seems fairly balanced with hop, dominated by a strange flavor that must be the sorghum. Makes me think of Mongozo. Better than Bud any time. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 14, 2007
bottle - Pours light amber with a very thin head and very little aroma. This beer is A-B’s effort to provide their too mild beer to people with celiac disease. As expected from A-B, it’s not all that good, but it actually seems to have a bit more flavor (it’s sweet) than Bud. Not terrible. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2007

A decent flavor with e some odd flavors I am not used to. A deep brunt coper color with a light head. This is a sweet flavor and the use of sorghum is making this a very good beer for those who can not have malts. Good job. nearbeer (5414) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 Bottle in pint glass. Burnt-orange, clear liquid with large-bubbled, 5 finger head. Aroma is clean banana popsicle. Taste is initially mild apple cider,with slight banana. I don’t really taste any hops, but it isn’t a bad thing. Interesting offering from A-B, probably the best I have had from them. The bottle says there is no barley or wheat in this beer, just sorghum. It is a bit sweet, and definitely not a session brew, but I’m glad they made a sorghum beer. To me it is better than any beer A-B brews with barley.
