1.79/5  rDev -33.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 1.25

Poured into a pils glass.

3.25 A: This is carbonated like mad. First pour gave me over two hands of head. Several pours later I discovered a clear medium yellow color. Three plus fingers of foamy white head. Retention lasts seemingly forever as bubbly reinforcement from below keep it maintained. Lots of lacing.

1.75 S: Smells of perfumy doughy sweetness with notes of ginger ale. Strange and I don't really care for it.

1.5 T: Sweet doughiness. No much in terms of hops. Perfumy ginger ale. Not much else to say - doughy overly sweetened ginger ale.

3.5 M: Medium body. I swirled this enough to get the carbonation down to an acceptable level. Moderately creamy. Not bad here.

1.25 D: All I need to say is that I wouldn't drink beer if I had to drink sorghum beer. Stuff is horrible.

2.63/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: The beer is crystal clear dark yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that quickly died down and left a wide collar consisting of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sorghum are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is dominated by sorghum flavors but these seem to be muted a bit by the hops, which contribute a slight amount of bitterness and faint hints of citrus. The sorghum flavors linger through the finish and aftertaste and seem to be a little rancid.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little clean and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has lots of aromas and flavors of sorghum, so if you are accustomed to gluten-free beers, this might not be a bad selection. It seemed to have a nicer mouthfeel compared to some of the other gluten-free beers that I've tried.

St. Peter's sorgham beer is a headless, laceless pale orange-brown. It has a mild hops smell. The taste is overwhelmingly bitter, but with little depth beyond that. It gives the impression of being highly alcoholic despite being having a low ABV.

I won't be trying it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

I was warned that this beer was super gross by the guy I was trying to give my money too.... so I figured it must be way gross. Thought I'd try it out as it might bring something different to the table.

A: A most average looking beer except for the massive white head that has the best retention of any beer I have ever seen. Bubbles are thick... looks like peanut brittle or so.

S: Very grassy which is likely due to the nature of the plant. Umm... yeah a little yeast as well. I mean... not bad.

T: Very light. Not gross but decently pungent. Very earthy and grassy. I mean... I kind of dig it but I can see how others might not like it.

M: Again that huge grassy earthy note develops but the carbonation doesn't overpower. It's 'ight

Overall I thought this beer was solidly average. Certainly not bad, certainly not great. If you're in the mood for something unique check it out but it was pretty light so....

500 ml bottle bought locally for $6.49. Hmm, more expensive than the other 2 St. Peters beers that showed up in town and it has terrible ratings. Weird.

I still like the flask shape of the bottle.

It pours like a macro lager, light golden colour with lots of bubbles but a more substantial head of foam.

I don't know if I've ever smelled sorghum before but it must be the key thing I'm smelling. Grainy, very corn like. One dimensional.

No barley or wheat and from the first sip, I could tell. Grainy as hell with some lemon notes in between the grain. There isn't that much of a flavour of corn, though it is there. The finish has a nasty aspirin like bitterness that completely turns me off to this brew. I'm thinking about drain pouring it but I guess I'll stick it out.

Bottom line, I think the concept of a sorghum beer is ludicrous and its execution, with this beer, is proof.
