krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2009
what i gathered from the website is that the ’red power’ version of this beer contains no cannabis at all-- because of all the marketing hassles associated with real ’cannabis, the original’. bummer dude! i was dying to spark up a bottle and put on a beatles record. in the absence of that novelty ingredient, we’re left with a strange german take on the theme of an american malt liquor. from mellow hippy scene to compton, bitch. i guess i’ll chug this, put on some rap and polish my nine instead. yo, i’m about to get wooded up on this motha fucka... this is a popcorn kernel yellow-orange colored liquid, with less head than marie antoinette after her little fall from grace. aroma is freshly torn scrap metal-- like that wonderful smell when you first open a big box of galvanized nails, oh it makes you celebrate just being alive! then come subtle notes of melting nogahide, apple peel and corn husks. the carbonation is crazy with scrubbing bubbles, while the flavor is a poor little unsophisticated donkey overloaded with a great burden of sweetness and overt alcohol. it’s a hard apple cider combined with some bock-like malt flavors, a bit of bread and wine, and a watery feel. not a total disaster, though admittedly some of my animosity was extinguished by the salubrious buzz. rather, it’s merely curious and moderately misguided: like, i dunno, maybe like trying to blend rap music with the beatles.

Amber color with ivory creamy head. Malty, spicy and alchol aroma. Strong and full bodied, lot of spicy and malty.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle in Italy: Deep gold. Had an unexpected fullness and a smooth texture. But after that it went downhill fast. Malt flavors were earthy and musty, and hop flavors were herbal and weak. 8 percent alcohol built to a burn, and it left behind rubbing alcohol notes. Overall, it was a beefy beer, but it lacked finesse, depth, flavor, etc. And, unlike other "weed" beers I’ve had, I didn’t get any cannabis notes at all.

Palme (3240) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2012
0.33l bottle. This could be interesting? Anyhow, this is a crystal clear light-copper colored one with a quickly sidesticking off-white head. Smells a but funny and suspicious? Herbal and caramel with some tones of water melon and tobacco. The taste is also weird. It’s like they have mixed Cuban rum with herbs and added it to the mash. It’s not directly boozy, but definitely contains some strong traces of alcohol. A bit tea-herbal in taste perhaps, heather-tea and woody-caramel perhaps? Ehm, it’s really different, a bit sweet in the finish and definitely not something I need to try again. 10.08.2012

jesperhammer (2859) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2011
29-APR-2011, bottle @apartment in Barcelona, from local supermarket. Nose is weak with a slightly bitter unpleasant note that could be cannabis. Thin taste, a little body that mainly comes from some residual sugar. Cannabis is on the taste as well, now that I know it. No real hoppy bitterness but some alcohol. Not the worst brew but I prefer to smoke my marihuana;-)

Bottle BBE 09.09.2010 (bought from Milan). Clear amber colour, white head. Syrupy malty aroma. Sweet malty taste with some alcohol. Decent body and a good balance. Don’t know how this is related to cannabis but as a beer I enjoyed this. ;)

Yeasty, tangerine aroma. Pours golden amber with thin white head. Light and mildly refreshing. There are hops here and alcohol is well hidden.
