3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
poured from 12 oz bottle. surprisingly dark, caramel, coffee aromas. there’s a little metallic aftertaste but not to bad. I have no idea why they call it "hemp" ale, but it’s over all a good beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 22oz bottle a dark brown with large tannish head. Aromas of roasted grains, bisquits and caramel. Flavor has a toasted malt graininess, with a touch of sweet caramel and a little coffee. The palate is malty and lightly bitter with a spicy tingle that is not from the carbonation. This one has a sweet start and a slightly dry finish. I found it to be an enjoyable beer. I’d drink one again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with an average beige head that laces. Nose of roasted malts and a mild herbal quality. Taste has some chocolate roasted bitterness and some mild herbal notes, not really a good taste or mix. Finish is smooth and a little bitter. Beer is medium bodied. Mild carbonation.
