A golden lager with a sweetish, herbal twist: The aroma of whole hemp leaves and the spicy bitterness resemble fresh-cut conifers and wild flowers. The hemp beer has a full, slightly sweetish body and an aftertaste that gives a long lingering unique impression of hemp. (Do not expect any other effects from this beer than a pleasant taste and a moderate alcohol content of less than five percent ABV).

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
A bready malt pillow is scented with the fresh and enticing herbal spiciness of hemp in this quenching and riveting Helles mit hanf.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces atop the shiny golden gown.
-This lager is as well rounded as any other 7 Stern brew I’ve had.
-The base malt sweetness is nearly honeyed.
-The hemp is so well used, it admirably replaces the hops in both aroma, flavor and finish.
-This is perfectly balanced; this Slovak brewer really knows what he’s doing!

On tap at the brewpub.

Pours a reddish gold with a fizzy head. Lots of grass and flowery hops all over this one... and sweet. Hemp shows up at the end of the finish, but not over the top. Like a light IPA, done right. Kind of reminds me of one of the lagunitas zappa beers but I cant remember which one. Awesome beer, actually.

Draught, 4.7% at the brewpub. Faintly buttery aroma. Cloudy dark orange colour. Stable creamy white head. Good maltiness to the flavour, hint of pepper. I thought this was just another malty lager until the aftertaste where the hemp can be tasted. Works all right.

On tap @ 7 Stern Brau, Vienna. Pours deep golden color with slightly sweet leafy/hoppy aroma. Taste is sweet with noticable hemp/marijuana, flowery grassy presence. Medium mouthfeel. Liked this

swing top bottle (500ml).-courtesy of and shared with Doggythedog (thanks!)
Cloudy yellow/orange coloured, medium to big white head, yeasty spicy nose. Acidic hanf taste with notes of yeast, hops and spices. Slight herbal touch in the finish. The beer was two weeks over BBE but still drinkable.

0.5l bottle brought from Vienna by a friend (thanks Ivana!)
A little past its bb date but still ok. Murky orange-yellow body with a medium sized white head taht took its time to go away. Strong yeasty nose. The taste is hoppy, with an obvious presence of hanf, nicely spicy/herbal. Yeasty, light acidity, long yeasty aftertaste. Ok overall I guess. Just a little off (the yeast is too prominent). Might rerate it at the brewpub.

Pours hazy golden with a nice white head. Aroma is herbal, spicey and creamy toffee... Flavour is hoppy again herbs and some toffee - with a long aftertaste.

Tap @ the brewpub, Vienna.
Pours hazy pale golden with lots of bubbles. A pretty, creamy, white head on top. Aroma has weak butter and a slight herbal touch. A bit thin at first, but it really gets a bit creamy. Clear hemp character in flavour, rather malty sweet. Refreshing with a good, long, lingering, herbal finish.

500ml swing-top bottle (Bügelflasche) (bb.31.12.07) bought at 7 Stern Bräu and enjoyed at our hotel in Vienna. Almost clear, amber in colour topped by a slowly fading white foam that left good lacing on the glass. Fruity aroma with elements of pineapples and grapefruits. Sweet herbal taste stongly supported by succulent oranges. Dry, but short ending. Refreshing and easy to drink (03.12.2007).
