appearance was a wonderful color with what I had expected in the head. Retention was a bit low. Wasnít sure what to expect in mouthfeel and flavor. Hoping to taste the protein, minerals and such from the hemp.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deep brown colored body with a light tan colored head. The nose is rich with caramel and a nutty note that I equate with the hemp. There is just a touch of pears. I get flavors of strong toffee and black tea up front with my first drink. As this warms I got some toast and a little bit more fruity sweetness, almost raisin like. A nicely done brown ale.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Creamy sweet aroma but heavy brown color. Foamy tan head that settles down after a minute. Nutty vanilla malt taste with a smooth after taste. I love it. Would eat with kettle corn. For some reason thatís what hits me.

Tried this at Cullenís Pub in Benicia, Ca. Not very complex. Didnít taste much like a brown. More like a pale ale with some hemp flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Moderate roasted and nutty for the malt, light herbs for the yeast, faint dough and earth for the yeast, with a hint of toffee. Head is small, fizzy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is dark brown. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a lively carbonation. Not big fan of Brown Ales, and this one is just drinkable.

I love the mouthfeel of this beer. Itís really light and creamy on the palate but still packs a decent brown ale flavor punch! Itís very smooth on the tongue and finishes a nice hint of bitterness. Tasty and pretty complex - Iím surprised by the fairly low scores here!
