Tastes a little grainy, possibly from the hemp seeds. Pours cloudy blonde with ok head and lacing. Finish sweet and crisp grainy. Not super exciting. Tap at C’est What Festival

Not a bad beer. The hemp comes through mostly in the mouthfeel. A little bit hoppy, otherwise unremarkable.

No scent at all. Wasn’t sure If it was just me so had my wife smell it. Taste is much stronger that he scent. Herby spicy and sweet. Has that hops taste that I now know is the brewery. That hops dominates. Not bad but not great.

En fût directement sous terre. Une robe légèrement ambrée. Une mousse inoubliable. Un nez épicé et malté. Des houblons en bouche et surtout des malts. Une bouche très légère qui est bercée par des bulles cadavériques. Une finale sur des notes amères peu stimulées. Ordinaire.

On tap @ C’est What Toronto. Poured clear deep gold with a moderate head. Sweet, malty aroma. Tasted honey, hop, and grain. Mild bite on the tongue. Nice beer.

On tap at C’est What. Orange pour, little head. Slightly sour, kind of a granola texture and dusty, grainy aroma. Not a ton of hop. Thirst quenching (watery) and inoffensive but not very flavorful. The hemp adds a slightly unique texture. Sessionable if bland. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Spab (3430) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2011
341 ml bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a clear golden orange with decent-sized white head. Aroma of somewhat sour grains, caramel and a little spiciness. Flavour has both sweet and sour notes with interesting graininess, lightish caramel and a herbal spiciness. Average carbonation and body. Nice.

Metalchopz (3094) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2011
Originally rated January 2006. This Canadian hemp beer pours a hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Lightly carbonated, with fast dissipation and good lace. The leftover that tops the brew is quite nice with bubbles, patches and streaks. The aroma is strong at first, with some bitterness, and then, grain cereal malt. Caramel malt in the mouth, with some kind of sourness in the middle. Hints of chocolat malt as well, and some bread. Well brewed, but nothing over-existing. All hemp beers I have tried so far seem to have an outdated sourness to them, and I am not fond of that. Found at the LCBO Depot on Bank street in the south of Ottawa.

cyrenaica (1126) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2011
550ml draught
4.9% ABV (as written on the menu)
I tried this on draught on October 28, 2011 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent light amber colour with a thin white head. The aroma was spicy, some caramel, and some citrus and grains. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour a weak balance between sweet caramel notes and citrusy hops.
