3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark mahogany color w/ a medium, semi creamy froth. Good head retention that finally settles to a full dusty canopy and lacing. Aroma is malty yet dry and brisk. Medium nectar w/ . A malt driven brew w/ a mild, herbal, hop component that sets up camp fast and sticks around. Mild flavored w/ a faint, almost tart nuance. Very mellow and I really like the velvet herbal hops. Hints of green tea, black cherry, cassis. The finish is bittered nicely w/ the same herbal hops. Because of itís lack of flavor, you could totally session it.

Clear copper body and small beige head that leaves minimal patches of lace. Subtle aroma of herbal hops and mild chocolate. Taste is chocolate and cola. Slight nuttiness and faint earthy and leafy hops. More of a brown ale than a spice or herb brew.

deep amber color with a small and quickly diminishing tan head. slightly malty coffee aroma. Taste is very watery, very lightly toasted malt with no hop experience to speak of. Uneventful :(

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark cola color with a cola like fizzy head. Aromas were decent. Caramel, some spice. Lots of malt with some fruity aromas too. Flavor fell off a bit with some metal. More malt than hops. OK, but not excellent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful full red with an almond head. Aroma of rich malt, almost like a robust honey. Amazing heavy malt nose. Reminds me of San Diego Pale Ales! Flavor is of a herbal, grassy hop. Tastes like a toasted crystal malt wort, without the sweetness. (Just a handful of grain) It is drier than I expected. The label alone is of course reason to try this one. Distinctive crystal grains throughout this one.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2007 Another pick up from Firestone Bar. A simple, good drinking beer. Nothing special just a nice easily put drank brew. The smell was a bit weak. The best thing about this ale was the drinkability. The weakest thing was prob. the smell and look, very simple on both parts. I could easily put back a bunch of these.

Better then I thought it would be, smooth hoppy ale, goes well with alfredo sauce. Great for that burn out college kid you know, although I tasted no hemp.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours an amber color with average head and lacing. The nose is lightly hoppy and a bit fruity with some pale malts, but Iím not getting much in the hemp department. Maybe a bit of spice. The flavor is herbal and sweet, rich caramel malts and bright hops, but no real hemp anything. Woo, letís call it hemp ale to sell more. Why not just Pale ale? Oh, they already have one of those.
