My overall score may be somewhat high, but when you have celiacs disease and it can cost upwards of $40 to find a six pack of beer (including shipping), I will definitely rate this one higher. I found out I had celiacs in the summer of 2006 and along with that found I had no beer to drink. It may not be good to those of you who can drink regular beer, but to those that cannot find sorghum beer in their area other than this, it’s more of a reflection of angelic voices. I don’t know how many bottles I have drank in the last month, but while it lacks some of the better qualities of some craft beers, and it is sweet (being that sorghum comes from sugar cane) it is a highly tolerable beer and much better than some of the others I have tried. I see it more as a savior for those that have celiacs disease. After a few, it tends to grow on you. JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Pours a nice amber color with a small white head. Interesting aroma - mix of malty sweetness and hops. Flavor is more of the same, but good. I likes it! RSRIZZO (1999) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Had on 7/1/2007. Aroma is sweet with nice hop tones. Color is a bright gold with very good carbonation and nice but looses head. Taste is bitter and cidery. Starting with a light/medium body that goes down crisp. Finish comes in with a mild cider like feel and a sweet flavor, this is backed by a light hop flavor and a full bitterness. I am surprised this is not bad and is much better then most of the stuff AB makes. Shag (3026) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2007
A clear copper color with a white soapy head. A nice malty aroma with some cherries and caramel present. The flavor is very crisp with a sweet cherry and lemon drop candy flavor. It was much better than I expected from AB. RJBennett (52) - Hibbing, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2007

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! I’m 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. It’s like drinking a beer for the first time. Just different... obguthr (6432) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Thistle aroma. Copper color with an off white head. Tastes of caramel and cherries. Ordinary hop finish. 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 f@ck up a lot of beers, but they did pretty good with this one. sms37gf (2) - , Michigan, USA - JUN 15, 2008 does not count
Good substitute for gluten intolerant people but it wont replace a true beer. Bitter flavor and fairly heavy. 502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle. Tried this because we had to get a GF beer for a friend. I know I had it years back, but can’t remember it, so here is my revisit. Pours a nice clear copper color with a fast fading white head. Pretty color though. The aroma really isn’t bad. Amber malt with a mild but pleasant hop profile. The flavor is pretty much the same, but a bit watery, and with some distinctive "beery" quality lacking. Its smooth with an almost vanilla quality, but it really isn’t bad. But, nonetheless, something is lacking. Medium body and carbonation. Overall: a simple, but not bad beer. If InBev ca create this beer, I would expect that some craft companies could create some really flavorful and unique GF beers. Let’s see/taste them!!
