On tap @ the brewpub. The aroma has malts, some flowers. Clear, golden coloured beer with a white head. The taste has light bitterness, light sweetness, malts, forest fruits and is a bit flowery. Nice.

(draught) pours a very hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of herbal hops, heavy cactus juice and grass, light butter and pale malts. flavour is mostly the same, yeasty and tropical, with notes of banana and caramel, the cactus juice being dominant though. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Cloudy orange brown and a frothy white head. Floral, bit soapy lemon. Really nice. Taste is okay as well. Medium bitterness. Surprising.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

was much more full bodied than other hemp beers I have tried, but retained its heady character and in Seiben Stern fashion kept a clean malt character.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel, some vegetable spiciness (hemp?). Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light spiciness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and some spiciness. Way too sweet/too much caramel for me.
