3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottled 03/20/2015. Clear brown with a small ring of creamy bubbles. Nose is a mix of molasses, toasted dark bread, apple and smoldering dried hay. Tastes of sorghum molasses, resiny green herb toasted sesame seed and new cotton shirt. Finish shows a nice dryness with some light ash and charred dry field grass. Light-medium body is a bit to the sweet side, but that’s per style, and a light astringency helps sweep the malt away. I normally like low carbonation, but this one needs just a bit more. Still, this is a pretty sessionable and interesting brown.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent and different. Malty and caramel notes. Medium brown color. Medium weight with good lacing. Burnt caramel flavors. Not sure what the hemp adds. Maybe a little earthiness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear amber brown color, beige head cover, heavy streamers of lace. Taste is semi-sweet caramel malt that moves quickly through the palate to a relatively short, mildly hopped finish. A somewhat heavy brew, with nothing exactly wrong, but nothing exactly right either. Not a keeper for me

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 4/1/15
Aroma: The aroma of this one is a little hoppy, with some chocolate and caramel notes.
Appearance: Pours a brown color with a very large, foamy, light brown head
Flavor: The flavor is along the same lines, pretty balanced, lightly sweet, medium bitter.
Palate: The body is medium, but the fizzy carbonation makes this fairly difficult to drink.
I thought this was a pretty solid, but the mouthfeel is definitely a problem. The carbonation is so strong, it is the most memorable thing about this beer. Too bad, cause there is some good stuff going on here.
