3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straight from the bottle for this one. Floral and hoppy aroma, cannabis does exist, along with a light bitter tase, with notes of hops. Average carbonation, thin to medium body, watery texture. Don’t know why I liked this so much, but this is damn good.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dror S.’s place. Thanks Dror S. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of DMS, corny and grainy, with faint herbal hints. Tastes like a Pale Lager, grainy and a bit sweetish with a pretty bitter finish, slightly herbal with a spicy hint. Light-bodied.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
pours golden straw yellow, nothing in terms of taste just a very small sharp finish of skunkiness. Didn’t even bother to finish this.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
330ml bottle somewhere in time, maybe more than 15 years ago.
In short: swill, crap beer.
In long: swill, crap beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
