3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a clear amber beer w/ a big head. It’s interesting more so than good but it’s still a reasonable thing to drink, I suppose. It’s got a sort of caramel, vanilla, tobacco thing going on. It’s sort of creamy in texture w/ medium carbonation. With some tweaking, this recipe could actually be legitimately good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml slim can. Dark amber pour with a frothy creamy long-sticking off-white head. It is a bit carmaally and toasty very light roast. Unnofensive but gimmicky.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours red amber with a very fizzy and quick fading off white head. Small malt aroma. Taste of malts, grain and straw. Not an impressive beer.

Comes in a cheap 4 pack. Has a foamy off-white head with a dark amber appearance. Malty aromas, wheats. Watery mouthfeel. Flavours are of weak citrus notes, light malts, some mild spices. If it’s made with hemp, I can’t tell. Nothing too special, but for the price, well worth trying again.

I’m not a lager man. I tried Buzz largely because I was curious about what a hemp beer would taste like. The answer: hay. That’s about it. A thoroughly forgettable beer kept aloft only by the gimmick of putting a marijuana leaf on the can.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Arrow and Loon.
Appearance: Pours a clear copper colour with little head.
Malt, rye, cereal, yeast.
Mouthfeel: Thinner with low carbonation.
Overall: Lots of malt and I’m getting some rye. An okay beer but not one of my favourites.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Amber clear body with a quickly dissipating head. Bready euro-lager aroma. Some hop bite, reminiscent of a pilsner in character minus the color. Very thin.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Boisson cuivrée, limpide mais presque brune, sous une mousse généreuse, résultant d’un gushing à l’ouverture de la petite canette. Nez de céréales maltées et de sucre d’orge ; la bouche est dans les mêmes tons, mais encore plus puissamment que prévu. Goût un peu herbeux, presque anisé, qui doit provenir des graines de chanvre. Rien de vraiment intéressant ici, oui ça goûte un peu spécial, mais ça goûte surtout la gamique commerciale pas si originale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The pour is darker, and prettier, than I expected, but the head disappeared in less time than it takes to change the channel. Nose is grain and caramel, and something in the background that I guess is hemp(ish)? (Some pothead I am.)
Taste is roasted grain and a whole lotta water, with a little bit of bland dryness on the finish. I knew the $5.50 4-pack was too good to be true. And I would like to know what "gold medal" this beer won, and from whom. Whoever it was strikes me as being poorly equipped to award gold medals. Gold stars to kindergarteners maybe.

The beer isn’t bad, decent enough despite its very low ratings. I would drink it over any macro beer that’s for sure. Price wise its a steal, competing near macro prices but tastes better, if i’m ever bit low on cash and don’t want to buy some of the more expensive craft beers (granted they usually taste better) this would be the go to cheap beer, it gets an extra point for that!
