A nice enough brown ale. It says itís brewed with "hemp", but Iím not quite sure what this adds to the beer. I did enjoy the hops/malt mix.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled September 14, 2011. Old bottle gifted from a friend, cheers anyway!
Appearance: The body has a great garnet and brown color with a creamy tan head that fills up the last quarter of my glass the beer doesnít fill. Retention is average but thereís a nice coating and some lacing.
Aroma: Some chocolate aromas, slightly dry nut aromas, and some sweet caramel. Nice aroma despite being so old.
Taste: Caramel and some cocoa mesh nicely with good balance, this drinks nicely even after a year.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: Solid brown ale, in fact one of the better ones Iíve had. This is something Iíll look for fresher to re-evaluate.

...bottle at Burke"s. I thought it would have more of an herbal quality. Tasted like a regular brown ale with a slightly nutty flavor. Finished dry and slightly thin and weak. Not impressed.

Draft. Pours a chestnut brown color with minimal head. The aroma is nutty with a slight herbal note. Smooth and rich malty flavor with a helbal spicyness in the back.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, malty aroma - at first smells like a red ale, then more candied and fruity notes come through. In fairness, Iíve got gasoline on my hands so thatís polluting the aroma discernment. Squat, California longneck. Good label and cap. Dark, almost clear brown - hard to tell in a chilly glass - minimal, tapioca head in a goblet. Tangy, red ale caste - tannic, some molasses, leafy. Hops arenít that prominent, seems like the bitterness comes off of caramelized sugars. Sweetish. Mouthy, a little roast coming through at the very end. Pretty nice. New Leaf Market.

Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky, tea-like brown pour, light off-white head. Aroma is somewhat neutral with some earthy herbal accents. Flavor is pleasant with some light chocolate accents, a bit of nuttiness, some earthy undertones. Nice smooth mouthfeel, sufficiently thick.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Fitlered brown-caramel color, thin steady off-white head. Hemp oily schwag aroma, some resinous hops. A little thin bodied for all the sweetness and flavor going on. Pleasant chocolate tinged aftertaste. A pretty decent Brown Ale in some respects, I just donít think the hemp seed is doing it any favors, just adding some oily burnt seed notes. Not one Iíd revisit.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I donít know what adding hemp seeds to a beer might do, other than appeal to hippie customers, although this smells very resinous for an otherwise roasted malty beer. Tastes oaty and sort of grainy, and carries a pretty big bitter quotient for a brown ale. (Pretty light brown appearance wise.) Too light for the style, had the body of a pale ale. Not bad, and unique in its own way.
