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.

Bottle: Pours an amber color with average head and lacing. The nose is lightly hoppy and a bit fruity with some pale malts, but I’m 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, let’s call it hemp ale to sell more. Why not just Pale ale? Oh, they already have one of those.

22 oz bottle. Poured a red-brown color with a nice light tan head. Good nose of spices and a fairly heavy mouthfeel. Flavors of malt carmel and chocolate, with an overlay of fruit. No sign of hemp. But that doesn’t detract from the brew, which is quite enjoyable.

Smells like malt, and actually has abit of smokiness to it. :) No flavor that lasts too long, but overall a decent brew.

This was pretty smooth for a hoppy ale. Nicely modeled and a real good structure. No jagged flavors. Nice color with a hint of spice in the aftertaste. A nice winter ale. Not real refreshing. Recommended.

Nothing really special about this beer, I only wanted to try it because it had hemp seed in it heh, even though I didnt taste any hint of it.....it wasn’t too bad, a little bitter malty taste to it, pretty smooth drinking, wouldn’t mind drinking this again though.

Bottle. Ruby brown beer with a nice off-white head. Slightly fruity and caramel aroma. Clean malt, caramel, and slight fruit (stone) flavor. Touch of cpise. Medium bodied. Easy drinking.
