3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle dark copper body, good clarity, smooth off-white head. Caramel malts throughout. Toasty and nutty malt depth. Body is thin and a bit watery, expecting a bit more heft from the crystal malts. Finish balanced out by the hops. Simple all around, but good and sessionable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
3/1/09 From the bottle. Aroma is light caramel and roast with no hops, similar to an english brown. Appearance is clear copper brown with a well-maintained off-white head. Flavor is all malt with sweet-sour slightly roast malt dominating an only very light herbal note. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a moderate carb texture. Overall, quite easy drinking and pretty yummy, a good beer for a wide variety of food because of its light flavors.

Pours a brown color with a large tan head that dissipates at an average rate. Moderate lacing. A lot darker then I expected.
Light aroma of toasted malt and a little caramel.
Toasted malt and a little caramel sweetness. Finishes with a bit of earthy hops. I don’t taste any weird spices here.
Light to medium body beer. Soft carbonation.
A very easy drinking smooth beer. A bit one dimensional for me. I expected a funky tasting beer and what I got was a mix between a pale ale and brown ale.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2009 Tried on Tap. Pours a dark amber red, semi transparent, no top. Smells of roasted peanuts, light choco and cherries. Taste of cherries, dark chocolate, and oranges. Light carbonation, smooth. Similar to a RED ALE AND PORTER HYBRID. Not bad.

Tap at the Yardhouse. Deep amber-brown beer, creamy thick white head. Aroma is very nutty and sweet. Soft brown/toasty malt base. A rich sweet toasted nut base. Fairly clean though with a nice soft sweetness. Fresh maltiness with a nice soft sweetness. Fresh maltiness and a light toasted malt base. It’s actually a pretty nice beer... it just isn’t really my style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Pours dark amber/brown with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor are both sweet, slightly roasty caramel malt, with a hint of fruit. Small bit of spices, but I would call this an amber, really (not sure where the hemp comes in). However, it is a pretty good amber, with a fairly nice roasty/sweet malt character.

Bottle: A common ale, most notable is the name. Drinkable but nothing outstanding.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Dark, clear crimson ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Decent retention. Subdued, malty nose provides subtle notes of chocolate, nuts and vanilla. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Well-balanced flavor offers traces of chocolate and nuts. Short, crisp, clean finish. Brown ale, I think.

Rating from 2006 while in Calli. Pours a dark amber brwon body. Grainy floral, caramel malt. Pretty simple and thin. Light toasted malt, i missed the truely hemp portion of this brew. I guess it had a note of spices.
