COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dragonmead's Hemp ale has a great deal of malt character, in part, from the Chocolate Malt used in the brew. The Cascade hops give this beer a clean hop finish, but it's the roasted hemp seed that makes the flavor remarkable. Slightly roasty and nutty, Dragon Daze's complexity is sure to amuse. ABV 4.3%

On tap at brewery. Reddish brown with a thin head. Not a lot of taste to this beer. Light chocolate nuttiness. No hint of hemp or any harvest quality.

Growler thanks to Kevin. This beer rocks. Due to its makeup its not gonna score high but its actually a damn good and unique beer. Nose is crazy with spicy french bread. I mean dead on crusty french bread. Pretty awesome really. Flavor is extreme french bread up front with a slight spicy rosemary like quality on the backend. A bit of hops. Medium body but not thin or watery. Really nice and unique beer. Super cool.

First off let me say that I am disapointed by Dragonmeads brews at the present. I have gotten the impression that with the prices of their ingredients going sky high, they have cut back on the quantity of their ingredients in their brews. The end result is much weaker than usual brews. The aromas and flavors all appeared weak IMHO. With that said, on to the rating. This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated brown colored body. The almost non-existant aroma was brown malt and nutty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of nutty and brown malt. Not one that I would likely buy again.

On tap at Dragonmead. Clearish red-brown body, medium tight cream head. Thin, toasty body with light sweetness, balanced by leafy, herbal, bitter hops. Somewhat lifeless and by-the-numbers.

Decent beer. Drank it before the incubus show in a large jug. Has a light red color to it, with minimal head

Pours dark copper brown with light tan head. Nose is somewhat malty with a streak of nuttyness. Slight flowery notes. Flavor is lightly chocolaty with unique roastyness. Not sure what Hemp seeds taste like, but this definitely has a virginlike flavor. Mild dry finish.

Tap: Poured a dark brown ale color with light head. Couldn’t pinpoint any aroma. Nice balance in the flavor but dry and watery at the same time. Tempted to say could have been an older batch. Will try again just in case.

Pailhead (4806) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2004
On tap: Chocolate nutty aroma. Mostly a transparent reddish-brown with a small off-white head. Very light chocolate nutty taste from start to finish. Not a lot of character to this beer.

Dark mahogony color with an off white head. A creamy coffee smell. A sourish tate, sort of cherry like. A dry finish. Not sure how a hemp beer is supposed to taste, but this wasnt bad.
