2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Non certo la migliore della serata, bevuta la notte (verso le 3 o le 4) dopo averla presa al Pub del Duca (grazie Roberto!); l’aroma č piuttosto curioso/piacevole ed č forse l’unico punto di interesse di una birra altrimenti non molto evoluta, che forse gioca un po’ sulla pubblicitŕ dovuta all’ingrediente e alla polemica connessa.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Hazy golden with a huge amount of floaties and a white head. Very spicy aroma with some resin. Medium-bodied with a little sweetish malt, very spicy with resin and ginger - but it’s probably just the hemp. The finish is dry with a subdued bitterness. Quite interesting and lovely really - I usually dig these hemp beers. 180808

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Botella. Pours a cloudy yellow colour. Strong biiter aroma of herbs. Thin mouthfeel. The flavour is nasty, just stuffed with bitter herbs. Dry uncomfortable herby finish. I have tried other tame hemp beers before but this one was just way too much and plain awful!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 50cl. It pours a hazy yellow beer with a beautiful creamy white head. The nose is dominated by hemp. Some gooseberries appearing. The taste is mainly of hemp. A subtle bready component sneaking in. Wonderful lacing. Sweet and hoppy accompanied by a hint of lime. Some gooseberries. Decent mouthfeel. A hint of marzipan and wild strawberries in the finish. A very good beer.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Luzern-07. Very interesting beer. This one has a huge herbal/grass aroma that really overpowers the beer. Has a cloudly yellow-orange colour with small white head. Has a nice bit of bitterness with lots more herbal, spicy notes in the palate. Not a beer I’d drink regularly, but an interesting experience!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow colored, hazy appearance. Medium sized white head. Aroma is rich with this hanf, reminds me of some nettle. Some sweet lemony touch also there, strong hamf covers other ones. Medium bodied. Flavor is also richly dominated by this hanf and herbs, aftertaste has also mild lemon. One-dimensional, though rather rich-flavored brew.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (trotzdem Danke !): Pale golden, lots of floaties and clumps visible, brownish sediment, rapidly vanishing white head, delicate sweet-malty, but mainly stong herbal, medical (hemp) nose; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied, short, dry bitter medical finish. No, no, I don’t want to drink from that cup of hemlock again...........

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. Clear golden yellow, medium-size head. Interesting aroma. Quite bitter flavour, spicy and hoppy. Not very malty, rather strange and unusual. I don’t like the herbal and hemp flavours very much, otherwise an interesting brew.
