    The beer pours a translucent metallic gold colour with absolutely no head. The aroma is light fruits, fresh paint, and grains. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with above average carbonation. The flavour is light fruits, honey, and grains. Very sharp on the tongue. Glad this was in the singles bin because I wouldn't want to drink 6.

    Bottle at TGI Fridays in Burnsville. Appears to be light in the body and is a bit thin. Very mild aroma that reminds me of normal non macro lager. Taste is damn near medicinal. Very dry and not very comfortable to drink. Bleh

    meh. not a sorghum fan, but wheni saw this was flying bison beer, had to give it a fair shake. i'll stick to the gluten. Fake, sweetish smell and taste. Slightly refreshing, but with zero complexity or other interesting qualities.

    I was lucky to find a single of this at the LCBO... as I am not a big fan of gluten-free beer. "The Original Sorghum Malt Beer" pours a golden colour with a foamy white cap that does last and gives out soapy lacing. The aroma is quite strong for this, with lots of sweetness (grape juice, honey), hay and hints of burnt plastic. Just really different. The taste is not as strong though, with watered-down apple cider and white grapes. Kind of bland. This one won't make me a fan, but if gluten is not your thing, Brasseurs Sans Gluten brews the best ones.

    Pours a clear bubbly dark honey golden, almost coppery. Aroma is crisp, malty and a little fruity - you would hardly know this is a sorghum beer. Crisp flavor is mainly malty and lagerish, with a hint of hops and a firm apple cider tone. Sharp, fizzy, lively texture makes this a delight to drink. Can’t have gluten? You can still have good beer!

    Translucent brown pour with a thin shrinking head and no lacing. Sweet and almost stale aromas of molasses - the sorghum coming through - then some wet cardboard. Taste is sweet, almost molasses sweet, thin syrupy. Good only if you have to have a gluten-free beer.

    Bought at Arlens Market.; Had as Bards Sorghum Beer .. . thanks for the sixer Rica, you guys can keep the other five .. . Little aroma of old wet bread and public bowling ball finger holes .. . terrible mouth, gritty and old, with a underlining sourness .. . i could choke this down if i had that bread disease but this was pretty bad .. . doesn't go well with chewy microwaved chex mix .. . and your sister is still a ghetto chickenhead!

    It pours a darker gold with no head and no lace. Aroma of sweet malts, light hops, citrus, and mild spice. The mouthfeel is mildly zesty, smooth, and rich. Flavors of sweet malt(not sure what sorghum tastes like), light hops, some peppery taste, mild citrus and spice. A bit tart, but good.

    From a bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with a white head that didn't last long. Actually a pretty nice looking beer. Aroma is very light but sweet with a a hint of corn maybe? Flavor is mild and boring. Next to no hop presense. Thankfully I'm able to drink grain beers, 'cuz this just doesn't cut it.

    This lager pours a yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is grain and cereal, a touch sour/lactic but not in a bad way. A medium to light bodied Pale Lager. Malts are grainy and cereal. Hops are mild and kind of spicy. Flat carbonation. Very Budwesier like yet it has a slight sour/lactic flavor to it. I am assuming that is from the sorgum than a brewing fault. It doesn’t have the crisp rice flavor that Bud has so that one point in its favor. But its still a fairly generic tasting Pale Lager. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertate is slightly bitter.
