St. Peter's Dark Sorgham Beer (Gluten Free)
St. Peter's Brewery Company St. Peter's Dark Sorgham Beer (Gluten Free) (5.5% alcohol by volume) is brewed with dark sorghum extract and contains no wheat or barley. It smells like sorghum, brown sugar, citrus, fresh jam, with a hint of chocolate and a mild earthiness. It pours brilliant dark brown with ruby highlights under a 1" tan cap with fair retention. The dark sorghum gives the beer light brown ale flavors with chocolate and some brown sugar which soften some of the sorghum's harshness and increase the beer's drinkability. Stone fruit and citrus flavors from the hops and yeast add complexity and depth and also help balance the sorghum. It starts mildly sweet but the sorghum leaves a refreshing dryness on the finish that works well with a tea like bitterness from the hops. The brewer achieves a nice balance between the sorrghum extract, the hops and the yeast flavors. The body is medium light to medium and the carbonation is medium. This is a very well made and drinkable beer. Ignoring its gluten-free status, I would rate this beer 80 but as a gluten-free beer I might go 90.
