2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
a decent brown ale, i donít know what the hemp is all about but this is well balanced, and interesting. i think the hemp is just a gimmick to get hippies to buy this.

A very nice ale. Iíd swear itís
made with coriander and not hemp.
(But then, Iím not sure what hemp tastes like.)
Anywho...a nice beer. Reminds me of Traquair House Jacobite Ale
except itís not quite as rich.
Warning: This stuff pours like homebrew. Watch out for the gunk in the
bottle...I wasnít prepared for that and now Iím drinking it! ;-)

I smell a malty chocoately smell in this crystal clear dark red brew with a little bit of head. Its malty and slitly bitter a good combo. Has a touch of choc at the end with a bitter aftertaste. Not very too malty but there is sweetness in good moderation. Slightly full bodied a bit much for s red but crisp. A very good brew tho the body is a bit heavy but worth a buy and rebuy for sure.

deep amber color with a small and quickly diminishing tan head. slightly malty coffee aroma. Taste is very watery, very lightly toasted malt with no hop experience to speak of. Uneventful :(

On tap. The flavor was really thin, it didnít match the dark color at all. Aroma was barely there. Probably wouldnt drink again.

This is a friendly brown ale with plenty of sweet malt character and enough acidity to establish balance and keep the beer from being flabby. There is no balancing bitterness nor hop expression. There is some nice complexity.

12oz. Pours a nice average brown, little head/retention, some lacing. Smells of roasted grain and malty sweetness. Slight creaminess but mostly the roast grain and malt sweetness from the aroma. Medium body, low carbonation,

Itís a decent brown ale. Nothing in the way of aroma -- nice deep caramel color and nice light malt flavor -- completely non offensive. How much hemp is in here? - I canít discern the flavor of the hemp if there is any.

This was pretty smooth for a hoppy ale. Nicely modeled and a real good structure. No jagged flavors. Nice color with a hint of spice in the aftertaste. A nice winter ale. Not real refreshing. Recommended.
