COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

What better place to have a hemp ale then in San Francisco, right in the Haight. That’s where I had this one: pours a darker copper colour with a fairly large head. aroma was sweet and enticing, floral and vaguely reminiscent of the green. Taste was tolerable, but i wasn’t overly impressed with this beer unfortunately. i expected more. Taste was acidic, light fruitiness and sort of watery in the finish.

Light brown pour with a small white head. Weak aroma of gently roasted malts, caramel and graininess. Watery body with flavors similar to the nose. It’s ok.

Fatehunter (2242) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Poured a finger and half of head on a dark amber colored body. The aroma is earthy with some grain. A nice smell I had encountered in a beer before. The taste has a metallic tone with vegetables and malt. It’s interesting. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. The metallic and vegetable taste did not work for me.
