1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s amber with a small head. The nose is paper, grain. Little else. The taste is similarly disappointing, distinguishable only by the lack of interesting or notable flavors. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, nondescript and disappointing. Not good.

Smell of malt with a slight wine taste. Dark clear amber colour. Slight sweetness with bitterness on the end followed by a mild hemp taste Medium-light body with mild carbonation. A decent beer, but hemp is not evident enough to warrant further interest.

Bottle LCBO: Golden-orange clear beer with nice head and decent carb. Nose is grainy, herbal, and peppery. Similar taste with hints of wood and sweet malt. Crispy mouthfeel. Just ok. Not sure the hemp played a big role.
