Creamy sweet aroma but heavy brown color. Foamy tan head that settles down after a minute. Nutty vanilla malt taste with a smooth after taste. I love it. Would eat with kettle corn. For some reason that’s what hits me.

A delicious aroma of chocolate, malt, and a slight tinge of mint. An appearance of dark brown the taste is overwhelming with malt, chocolate, and a small under currant of honey. The carbonation doesn’t take away from the over all experience. A wonderful brown ale, delightful and refreshing.

i loved this beer. It was extremly smooth,with a deep flavor. There was virtually no after-taste. I enjoyed the experience of drinking this beer. When i had finished drinking it, i wanted another, but alas that was on the other side of the Grapevine.

Lovely rich texture. Tasty nutty finish with an enriching appeal. The hemp makes this a very filling beer.

Humboldt Hemp Ale is a deep raspberry brown in color with a small, dissipating parchment-colored head. The aroma is of piney, resinous hops and sweet malt, perhaps caramel. It is medium-bodied and ever so smooth with soft carbonation. It is not overtly bitter. The flavor is of resinous hops that linger lightly. I’d almost call this a brown ale. A great example of a West Coast ale!

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!

It’s about time to see a hemp ale in the grocery store. I really like the label I had. (different from the one pictured). I can actually taste a hemp flavor and it is yummy for my tummy. If only there really was THC that made you feel exceptionally warm and fuzzy inside!

For a hemp ale, this is my favorite. Honestly some of them are pretty bad, but I am quite fond of this one. Today I am drinking a pint poured from a bottle, but it is much better on tap at the brewery in Arcata, CA. Still, it is great in a bottle. It has an amber color and a light head that dissipates quickly. Tastes like a decent micro-brew ale, but can't tast any hemp. Previously, I have used hemp oil for cooking, and this beer tastes nothing like that. It is a good beer, a great hemp ale, and it would be better if it was under $7 for a 6-pack.
