This beer poured a golden yellow color w/ good head and slight lacing. Malty and crisp w/ citrusy notes on the nose, and the same in the mouth. Good effervescence, and a light body complemented this beer. I like it.

Very dark brown pour with a small head the fades fast. Roasted, nutty aroma. Taste is sweet with oats and cereal, very interesting. The finish is clean. This brew is very nice. I like the aroma and flavors all the way through!

Sweet, malty smell and malty taste. Taste isn’t very sweet and leaves something to be desired.

Had from bottle - April 28, 2003
Pours a dark reddish brown with a slight head that lingers for a while. Aroma is quite malty with a bit o' hops. Taste is initially strong, but weakens quickly - almost zero aftertaste. Flavor is quite underwhelming without any stand-out tastes. An interesting gimmick, but nothing more.

Bottle. Dark brown pour, literally no head to speak of. Aroma was hops, maybe a touch of malt. Flavor was just like a brown ale, like said below. Not a bad beer, but nothing special either.

Drinkable, but not amazing - though by this point my judgement may have been impaired.

A little burnt toastish flavor going on in this malty syrupy dark brown (not black at all) beer. On draft at DiPiazza in Long Beach, CA

Not much flavor for a semi-dark beer. The flavors that are there are out of wack. Too malty with a strange caramel aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Absolutely not the taste I thought I would get. It was lacking in taste. An amber color slightly malty. No hemp flavor at all. Maybe a slight earthiness.

ours a dark amber with about a finger of tan, rich, slowly dissipating head. Raisin notes in the nose. Soft mouthfeel with a sweet aftertaste. Some dark fruit and brown sugar is prominent. Actually better than I expected it to be.
