Iíve tried to review this from the point of someone who cant have regular beer. It feel like its not worth to someone who has an intolerance to Gluten. The aroma is almost non-existent, taste of Sorghum makes for the unpleasant. hops are a falling taste.

Pours a copper golden colour with no head what so ever. Aroma of cheap malts or something. Weak flavour of practically nothing noticable, and a bland watery finish. A lame ass beer, I guess if you have Celiac disease its an alright buy. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle courtesy of dpjuart. Metallic tinny nose, sour lactic notes. Grainy metallic hoppiness, which reminds me of some poorer beers of Bretagne. Medium dark amber clear with thin off-white foamy lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with an odd sweetness, so I guess thatís the sorghum, but having never tasted it ... Goes away pretty quick with some biscuit and caramel, light nutty character. Finishes with odd lactic metallic bitterness and acidity. Stunted dryness with dull metallic sweet after. I hope celiacs get a better option soon. kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Its a dark syrupy brown, with heavy mouthfeel. The taste is a strong (dull sweetness) if that makes any sense. Iím just not used to sorguhm. DarkElf (3062) - La Jolla, California, USA - NOV 22, 2007
22-Nov-07 (12 oz bottle: BevMo in La Jolla, CA) As with other sorghum-based beers, the profile is quite different from beer, offering few similarities to the real thing. However, compared to some other gluten-free beers, this one comes across as extremely perfumy. In the nose, the beer smells sweet and fruity like Bartlett pears and is overpoweringly perfumy, like walking (as quickly as you can!) through the cosmetics area of a cheap department store. Sweet and kind of sugary on the palate, with pear and flowers. The choice of hops just enhances the floral nature, and the addition of Cascade doesnít seem to contribute enough citrus for a counterpoint. Light-medium body with average carbonation. Clear in appearance and golden-amber in color, carbonation streams are numerous and swift, helping to keep the thin, fragile, off-white head alive. Overall, I donít find this enjoyable at all. Even if I were gluten intolerant, rather than drink this offering from Anheuser-Busch, I would find other alcoholic beverages to drink such as wine because the pungency of the perfumy nose is just too much. And the flavor isnít much better. But fortunately, there are much better gluten-free beers out there.

An interesting beer with little flavor and little going for it, a different addition to the anheuser-busch line up. wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Nice color but no taste. Canít believe they would call this full-bodied. Weak, bland, tastes like a non-alcoholic beer. Was interested in trying a gluten-free but Iíll keep the gluten, I think. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2010
Filtered, head disappears immediately. Not so much aroma; corn, bread. Taste is strangely sour although luckily thereís some sweetness as well. Aftertaste is bizarre. Never again. (On my FL trip. ) dwyerpg (6078) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 13, 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. dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2007
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Naka. Pours straw yellow with an amber twinge. Thick, white, rocky head with a touch of lacing that quickly dissipates. Fruity nose, lemon and grapefruit with a big dose of caramel. Sweet, sweet taste, caramel there, with fruity flavor, pear, apple. End is weird, lots of flavors . . . fruit, bitter, metallic, with a lingering metallic/bitter after. Thin mouthfeel, little carb. Tastes like cider. Better than I remember from my first encounter, but still bad.
