2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: pours with a medium tan head that settles into a moderate density, the beer is a very nice semi transparent brown color with some amber hues to it,
Aroma: maple syrup, kind of faint, very slight hop tang
Taste: slightly sweet, has a very faint hop bitterness on the finish, also finishes with some toasted malt
Palate: average carbonation, light mouthfeel, faint bitter aftertaste
Overall: not a bad beer, would be easily sessionable, nothing stands out that makes it great though, a bit bland

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Champps in Marlton, NJ. Hazy chestnut pour under a thin brown head with thin fingers of lacing. Lightly malty aroma with milk chocolate and a hint of lemon. Nutty, caramel flavor with some butterscotch and coffee. A citrusy hop note smacks you from behind every now and then. Light creamy texture and a semisweet, medium long finish. A nice brew.

A tasty ale thatís got nothing to do with herbs or vegetebles, as far as I can taste anyhow. Thick body with a pleasant taste and finish. Just not my bag. There are so many of these beers that all taste so similar. Mine is by Humboldt Brewing Company, but says itís from Paso Robles, which is a contradiction indeed. Also mine has a different label, one thatís kind of hippyish in image, perhaps for reasons more obvious than not. Good aftertaste Iíll say, which is not so common.

Poured from the bottle it has a medium brown color with a small head. It has a nutty aroma but the flavor is full. There is something unique about the taste possibly the hemp seeds that produce a small bite but give it a good finish.

Draught pint pours a medium brown with a light tan head that does not last. Aromas are slight roast malt and light sweetness. Taste is a decent light roast taste with medium body. Very drinkable, but not complex . Overall a good, but not great brown ale.

From bottle. This was a big disappointment. Worth a drain pour. Ale brewed with hemp, but pretty darn plain, and lacking character. Even my friend who drinks brown ales regularly couldnít stomach this one and we had most of a six-pack left over. Yuck. Terrible.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 22oz bottle a dark brown with large tannish head. Aromas of roasted grains, bisquits and caramel. Flavor has a toasted malt graininess, with a touch of sweet caramel and a little coffee. The palate is malty and lightly bitter with a spicy tingle that is not from the carbonation. This one has a sweet start and a slightly dry finish. I found it to be an enjoyable beer. I’d drink one again.

Draft at Yard House in Boston. Looks like any ordinary brown ale with a clear brown body and a nice off white colored head. I respect the creativity of this beer but the hemp flavor doesnít mesh well in brown ales. Too nutty and earthy of a flavor

On tap. Pours red-peach with beige head and lace. Faint aroma of floral and sugar. Indistinct taste, not bad, but not remarkable. Best part of beer was its appearance.
