Pours a clear, light brown on tap with thin tan head and great lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee, and odd esters. Taste follows, with bitter hop finish. Decent beer overall, nothing special, not sure where the hemp comes in except as a selling point.

ours a dark amber with about a finger of tan, rich, slowly dissipating head. Raisin notes in the nose. Soft mouthfeel with a sweet aftertaste. Some dark fruit and brown sugar is prominent. Actually better than I expected it to be.

Bottle from Mariís. Pours soda brown with a small tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. There is plenty of carbonation action in the glass. The aroma has a sweetness but is fairly nondescript. The taste is sweet and roasty with a flavor that is challenging to describe. Maybe itís hemp. A little watery.

Brown in color with an off-white head. Some toasted malt, a little bit of roast, and a hint of coffee. Thereís a bit of earth, mild fruit, and some slight grassiness. Sweet toffee on the palate with roasted malt, toast, and hints of chocolate and coffee. There is some earthy hops, a light bitterness, fruitiness on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pour on tap at Burger Bar @ Mandalay Bay (Las Vegas, NV). Pours a rich deepish brownish pour with a mellow haze, deeper dark crispness. Some frothy loose tannish head sits atop, laces ok. Aromas are a bit of cocoa, firm brown malt, bready and biscuity. Earthy with splashes of cocoa, soil, and gentle carmelization. Minimal earthy hop kick gives some life. Gentle sweetness grows as it warms, taking the reigns a bit. Initial is medium bodied, a touch sweet and girthy with brown malts, carmelization, and earth. Some toffee, toast and gentle thicker dark malts. Not all that sweet, but a touch girthy. Middle is a bit oxidized, some toast, biscuits and some dark fruit hommage grows. Backend is a touch more dry, gentle spice, kiss of cinnamon and a dry subtle earthy hopping. More sweet slanted, a bit girthy. Not personally how I like my American Brown Ales, a bit big and sticky.
