Didnt think I would like this one...something about "gluten-free sorghum" did not sound real appealing. However it was different in a good way just couldnt put my finger on it. Nice change of pace beer (not a fruity beer) that will do for a meal or just enjoying.

First thing youll say is wow thats a little different, not bad, but different. Its nice theyre doing something for people on a gluton-free diet. Very sweet and very finishable.

Clear golden-peach body is lightly bubbly, producing an off-white head that is small and shows moderate retention, little/no lacing.
Sorghum is easily distinguishable in the nose (gives a light buttertoffee/graham cracker/vanilla sort of aroma/flavor) and provides light sweetness, while citric hops are actually apparent, though lightly so. What I dont find is any DMS or diacetyl OR acetyldehyde. Wow, thats a first. The sorghum gives a slight roundness to the aroma as well, that, while perhaps not so appropriate for a pale lager (which should be all about crispness), is still pleasantly surprising when taking in to account that this is a Bud product. And hop bitterness and light yeast apparency do add enough dry/crispness on the finish to make it passable. Medium strength of aroma, no alcohol noted.
Big sorghum flavor emulates the nose, with more residual sweetness than you usually get from AB. Buttertoffee is strong, with light dough and biscuits towards the finish. Gentle hop bitterness helps control the malt, some very light lemon and orange flavors, with a touch of grassiness. Carbonation is moderate, and while not tight or engaging, is at least not overly aggressive. The only slight flaw that I noticed was a bit of a metallic flavor on the end.

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 dont really taste any hops, but it isnt 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 Im glad they made a sorghum beer. To me it is better than any beer A-B brews with barley.

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.

bottle- remarkably better than I was expecting- some noticeable hop flavor, and very clean. Not at all sour or sharp as some suggest sorghum beers tend to be. Drinkable, and way better than Bud, one of AB’s other products.

Its hard for me to even think of this as beer; it resembles beer only in the shape and presentation of the bottle, and the fact that its a starchy drink with a similar alcohol content as beer. If youve tasted sorghum syrup, the aroma is more like that than anything else. Its actually not bad though...I dont like sorghum syrup because its sweet, but this drink is only a little sweet, and is pleasant. The aroma is interesting. Worth trying. Just dont expect it to taste remotely like a beer.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a refrigerated glass. Pours a medium clear amber with medium white head. Some lacing, high carbonation, and nice body. Taste is nice and malty. If I had celiac disease, I could get by drinking this.

Clear, gold pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma is malty with notes of bread. It has a light, thin body with average carbonation. The taste is sweet from start to finish. This beer is actually a little better than I expected.

Pours flat with no head. No metallic lager taste! Almost a sweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
