1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Saw some 33cl bottles of this lurking in the fridge of a Giros joint in Mykonos Town while on holiday (early May 2013): had to try it.
Murky, cloudy lagerish yellow colour, what head arrived soon left the area.
The taste and aroma were a bit strange: not sure what flavour ’hemp’ actually has, anyway this beer definately had something different about it, Guava?
I can’t say I really enjoyed my bottle, but I do things like this sometimes just to annoy the wife (hunt down new beers, then pay over the odds and don’t like them).

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from local Yamaya. Big pissy Saaz-like nose (is that the hemp?) with a grassy background. Hazy pale straw. Light bitterness in initial; bitter grows along with a touch of cereal and some cardboard; final is more or less balanced, has a metallic note, and leaves a slight burn. Like a crude Czech pils. Better finish writing this before the "hemp’ kicks in.....

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Why? It doesnt taste much different from a non hemp beer. Only somewhat unique characteristic is a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Otherwise, nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Well filtered, clear yellow/golden with no head. Nose : lager malts, skunk and grass aromas, citron zest. Sip : Water like density, water texture with annoying carbonation, that foams still in the throat. Little sweet with some citrus bite, bitter hop and metallic flavor in the end and the aftertaste is strange, leaves a layer that feels like i burned myself with hot beverage. Overall It’s skunky and fresh but NEEDS cold temperature.
