COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

GoufCustom (765) - 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.

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.

Argonian (266) - Athens, GREECE - OCT 30, 2013
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.

DSG (5657) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 22, 2013
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.

Jimmythespoon (452) - CYPRUS - SEP 7, 2013
pours golden straw yellow, nothing in terms of taste just a very small sharp finish of skunkiness. Didn’t even bother to finish this.

greenclansman (742) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - SEP 6, 2013
Blond macro lager color, with some bread-y skunk-y aromas. Tastes like a cheap typical lager with an THC kind bitterness aftertaste. Nothing special for a beer.

yngwie (13194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle. A clear, pale golden, almost yellow, beer topped by a white head of moderate size. Rather grassy, lightly piney and quite herbal nose with some hayish maltynes. Less on the herbal side in the flavor, although still that’s the dominant compound. Thin on the palate, with a decent carbonation level. Pleasant bitterness towards the end. Certainly not my favorite beer in any way, interesting though, and it has some resemblence to a classic German pilsner, but I’d rather have the real thing. The beer that is. 130711

This smelled quite like cannabis which was different. It poured a very pale yellow colour with a tiny head. Taste was similar to smell and quite watery. Very low carbonation.
