COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

Comments: I’ll be damned! They managed to do a good hemp beer, but then again, it can’t be too hard with such a great basis as their märzen. Very perfumey indeed, concentrated nose with a floral outburst. It does feel much duller in mouth though and somewhat thin and overly herbal compared to the powerful nose.

omhper (18963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2007
Bottled. Hazy pale orange. Fruity apricot aroma. Sweet and medium boduied with rounded mouthfeel. Fruity almond character from the hemp with some gentle grassiness behind. In typical 7Stern tradition the malt backbone is solid and vital. Some late bitterness. A thoroughly well made beer.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2007
Dark yellow colored, slightly cloudy appearance. Again this handmade yeasty aroma with some flowery and lemony tone. Aroma does not differ very much from Helles I had earlier. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is soft with yeasty-flowers again, maybe hints of some herbs here, but not very obviously. Aftertaste dries mildly.

TBone (11917) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2007

Dark honey golden color, small steady white head, lace. Aroma of herbal hops and as you know it - I could say aroma of hemp too. Very grassy, herbal flavor, but not anything what hemp users could love (I am not one of them :)), I suppose. Sweetish maltyness. Quite similar to another Austrian hanf-bier I’ve had previously.

asheft (2445) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2007
[on tap at brewpub] Fairly potent citrusy (US?) hops aroma in front of a blast of sweet malt. Hazy dark yellow with very nice clingy, white foam. Fairly bland and soda watery flavour and mineraly bitterness. A little redeeming malty caramel comes in late in the flavour. Apricot and apple notes. Light body and thin with lasting bitterness and moderate carbonation.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - JUN 6, 2007
(Bottle BB 11/06/07; ABV 4.6%; Thanks Jay!) Flowery, hemp-like and citrus fruity aroma. Yellow colour, hazy (small particles) and average size, white head with good lacing. Fruity, grassy, hemp-like (mild), slightly malty and slightly bitter flavour. Medium-bodied and softly/lively carbonated palate. Refreshing one! 03/06/07

motelpogo (6130) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 26, 2007
on tap at the brewpub. one of two beers that i expected to be complete disasters which weren’t. aroma reminded me of a good nz gewuerztraminer. plenty of hemp character especially seed, quite sweet with a grassy finish, a bare minimum of hops in this but i think it works better having a pronounced hemp character

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2007
[On draught at the brewpub] Hazy pale yellow colour. Citrusy, perfumy nose with notes of elder. Rich flowery and fruity in flavour with elder present. Stalk-ish mouthfeel. Notable bitterness and very dry. Flavourful beer.

Geiserich (3106) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 18, 2004
Medium hemp aroma. Pale ornage color. Medium hemp taste, a little bit watery, crispy. Dry, light bitter aftertaste. A like the hemp aroma, but this one’s more for a hot summer day.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2004 On tap at 7SternBrau, Wien (with Geiserich). Pale orange with lasting head, slight haze. Sorry, but I didn’t get this one, thin vegetable leafy notes in a thin malt. Dry with some hemp on the nose. Not to my taste.
