3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
20oz pint on tap at Cock & Bull in Hyde Park, for $6.75. Clear dark red / slightly brown color. Thin khaki head retains on the surface. Leaves decent bits of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Good toasty, slightly nutty malt profile. Kind of spicy hop, good amount for a brown ale. Bit of herbal, earthy, hemp-type flavors here, hint of chocolate. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Solid, kind of spicy-hoppy brown ale.

Draft to pint. Looks solid; a semi-transparent amberish-brown with sticky off-white lacing. Smells and tastes of dark malt with a light tastiness and mild nuttiness. Average on the palate. Okay, but a little thin and light for the style.

appearance was a wonderful color with what I had expected in the head. Retention was a bit low. Wasn’t 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 that’s what hits me.
