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).

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.

Koelschtrinker (11062) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Mild hopfig-kräuterartiger Antrunk, im Mittelteil leider etwas wässrig. Herb-süßlich werdend, im Abgang wieder etwas hopfig. Wenig intensiv. Test vom 10.8.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 14,8,7,8,-,7

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.

Tap @ brewery during RBESG 2012. Hazy golden appearance with an off white head. Herbal, grassy, a bit woody, grainy aroma. A bit chewy, woody, herbal, light spicy, straw flavor.

Dogbrick (8681) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2009
On draught at the brewpub. The beer is a mostly clear yellow-orange color with a medium foamy white head that dissipates slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey, toffee and spices. Light body with flavors of sweet caramel malt and lightly spiced hops. Honey is present in the flavor as well. The finish is sweet and spicy with a honey aftertaste. Decent overall.

Thanks to PilsnerPeter for sharing. Pale golden pour with a very thick, sticky white head. The nose is quite clean and fresh. A bit of soft herbal spiciness and a touch of nutty character as well. The flavour is nutty and sweet on the finish. As it warms up there is a touch of soft peppery spice on the back of the palate, but it’s pretty subtle.

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2007
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).

Quack-Duck (8159) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2014
bottle from the vending machine at the brewery. Hazy pale yellow, mid-sized white head. Malty base with lots of resiny and grassy hops. Very-well balabced, very nice indeed.

MartinT (8135) - 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!
