Original Sorghum Malt Beer
Bard's Tale Beer Company Original Sorghum Malt Beer (4.6% alcohol by volume) is a gluten-free American pale Ale brewed with sorghum. I picked it off off the Total Wine single's shelf. It is 4 months old. The aromas are low, featuring a trace of caramel, sorghum, light toast, and a hint of fruit. Hop aromas are low, grain aromas are between medium and medium low and fermentation aromas are low. It pours brilliant copper amber filled with streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a thin 1/2" white foam cap with poor retention. The flavors start with lightly sweet caramel bread crust and a hint of fruit, light spice, a hint of anise, and a little bit of sorghum flavor. It does not have the sorghum sharpness. Hop bitterness is very mild.This medium to medium light bodied beer has medium high carbonation. This is one of the better gluten-free beers in a lighter ale and is as good as many of the gluten-reduced beers. I rate it 79.
