3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear brown pour with a large, foamy tan head. Very malty aroma, with caramel and leaves. Nutty, sweet flavor with a funky bitter finish from the hemp seeds. Sticky texture with average carbonation. Light to medium bodied. Unique, but doesn’t measure up to the other hemp ale I regularly have.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Brown appearance with a small, light tan head, mostly dissipating, moderate lacing. Aroma of dark malts, bitter chocolate, earth, mild hops, light herbs and toffee. Similar flavor with notes of bread, caramel, toasted malts and a light roast. Medium body with a crisp feel and a semi-dry, lingering finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark, almost porterlike appearance. The hemp gives it an earthy flavor, like chewing on a rope or a piece of straw. Fairly sweet, not a lot of hops or roasted malt. Light bodied. A little gimmicky and not the most well made brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/16/2013. Pours slightly cloudy deep reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, biscuit, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark malt and light hop/hemp notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark malt flavors with light hop/hemp presence; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice brown ale. Good balance and robustness of dark malt flavors and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. What’s the big deal with hemp seeds anyhow? This is a middle of the road beer posing as something more exotic. Avoid unless you need a hemp fix.
