The use of Hemp Flowers (among other entheogenic plants) in Beer was a common thing in whole Europe before the year 1512, when the so called "beer purity law" appeared in Germany. This purity law is perhaps the first anti drug law of the menkind... Hemp is an emparented plant with hops. Hemp flowers have more than 140 different aromatic compounds. Many of them are found in hops too and many others that are not produced by hops but fits perfect with hops together. This all different essential oils that results in the unmistakeable hemp flower aroma of Cannabia. Cannabia contains more hemp flowers than hops flowers. The production of Cannabía was autorized in ’96 by the Berliner authoritys. For more on this beer visit: http://www.dupetit.de/english/framer.htm

Golden yellow color, with slightly cloudy white foam. The smell is similar to the hops, but more pungent, which is normal because this beer is made of hemp (not cannabis) instead of hops. It is bitter but refreshing. Come on, nothing to call too much to drink.

Botella de 33 cl de el c. Ingles. Posiblemente hacia mayo de 2000, con cad. Para 28-09-2000. sabores y aromas muy ligeros con ciertas hierbas y cannabis, tal vez el único interés. Poca cosa, no la he vuelto a tomar desde entonces. Cuerpo ligero con 5 vol. Sin mucho o nada de interés.

En botella de 33cl con mas apariencia que sabor. Rubia con espuma y con aroma a cannabis que es donde quizás radica su diferencia. Por lo demás, muy pobre.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
Bottle at Anastasia’s Kitchen, Tring on 16 March 2014. Poured a hazy orange, with a dense white head and some lacing. Aroma of ripe oranges, aniseed and lager malt. Sweet, fruity flavours of caramel, banana and some grass. Finish was toffee, dried fruit and mild copper. Not great, but far more passable than I had expected.

In short: swill, crap beer.

GoufCustom (1072) - HONG KONG - MAR 7, 2014

330 ml green bottle. Translucent light straw honey colour; Three-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Very good sticky lacing with near zero carbonation; Sweet aroma of malt, with light honey, herbs, nuts, cranberry, red fruits, faint wet cardboard, light syrup and light grass; Close to light sweet taste of malt, with light guava, faint red fruits, light molasses, strong herbs, light lime and sharp, bitter grassy hops; Light body, thin but slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is a cross between Blonde Ale, Pale Ale and Heller Bock. Thin body but pretty good maltyness and very light sweetness. The ‘herbal’ background permeates throughout, with guava , light red fruits and sharp hops to boost, pretty good!... Hoppiness is very light grass nose. Strong herbal, light lime and grass in taste. Light, sharp and lively bitterness for an abrupt, low astringent finish; Quite dry after taste. Easy and pretty herbal to mouth.

Comments: As a spiced brew, it has okay looks, a just-right aroma, light-hearted taste, strong herbal feel and spunky hoppiness to keep me interested. It may sound gimmicky, but it works out just fine. Money well spent.

allmyvinyl (6343) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 28, 2014
330ml green glass bottle from east coast organics. Pours clear golden yellow with a good long-lasting white head. Straw and grass aromas. Taste has a quite unpleasant teeth-coating herbalness. Nice to have tried.
