Affiliated with the Nectar Ales experience through shared origins at Humboldt Brewing Company, Hemp Ale is a one-of-a-kind brew that boasts an incredibly rich profile and unique herb-accented flavor that is attributable to the incorporation of hemp seeds into the brewing process. A wonderful brown ale full of complexity Hemp Ale is great with food or by itself. American hops create a perfect balance to the darker malts used in this brew. This brown ale is the Gold Medal winner for first place in its category at both the 1999 and 2000 California State Fair Craft Brewing Competitions.

Clear dark brown beer. Palate is slightly dry. Nicely balanced. Smooth malt that has a vague nutty flavour. The hops are not too aggresive and provide a sweet peachy orange as well. A little bit different. Finishes sweet and tangy. Subtle pleasures!

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2007
Brown color. Caramel aroma, light herbs. Thin body, caramel flavor, some residual sugars, light chocolate malt, but a rather unpleasant, even if light, herbal touch. Not my kind.

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark but clear amber-ruby-brown with a very faint, white head. Easily detected malts in the aroma, some caramel, some florals. Holds a somewhat nutty flavor, mild chocolate notes, a bit of honey. Leaves an odd sensation on the teeth, like a coating of some sort. There’s also some earthy bitterness in the finish. Overall, it’s not bad, but didn’t strike me as particularly great.
