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.

jfb (5478) - Freising, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2012
(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.

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.

TimE (5033) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 29, 2015
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.

Marko (4948) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 27, 2008
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.

chinchill (4262) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 .5L mug at Siebensternbräu in Vienna. Luckily, I tried this ’gimmicky’ beer. The brewery’s description --"golden lager with a sweetish, herbal twist; The aroma of whole hemp leaves" -- is on target. This slightly hazy, golden lager has a bone head that leaves exceptional lacing. The aroma features malt + herbal + meaty smoke; the latter being unexpected and virtually undetectable upon tasting. Medium/full body with excellent carbonation. Creamy smooth yet a bit lively too. Hemp flavor? ... yes, I think ... an unusual herbal flavor in any case. spice and hops and baked bread in the fine aftertaste. Excellent sweet/bitter balance. O: a unique lager with a substantial malt and herbal base. Enjoyed from start to finish. If in Vienna, worth the trip.
