Bottle. Aroma is hoppy, grainy with something odd that I can't quite place. Perhaps a bit wheaty. Flavor is interesting, with the rye taking some heavy notes. Not sure what hemp tastes like but it could be what contributes the interesting flavor element.

Amber pour with watery tan head and lace. Aroma is sweet malt, spices, and no hops to me. Flavor is really sweet rye malt, a vegetable funkiness, a bito bitter finish. Medium bodied and fizzy..

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Review from notes:
A - Pours copper red with a thin beige head that sinks quickly.
S - Sweet grain, sweet fermented fruit, some tangy caramel, not much going on here.
T - Sweet off the top with over ripened fruit, stale grain, hints of spicy grass, caramel undertones, finishes
M - Light body, with moderate prickly carbonation, slick and thin feel.
I couldn’t pick up any of the bold spicy hops that I was expecting and barely got a hint of rye. Pretty sweet with an odd tangyness that seemed out of place. This is a one and done for me.

I thought this was a mild and very balanced beer. Hops, although definitely at the forefront become milder as the nuttiness and maltiness bring the drink to nice balanced finish. It’s not a complex beer but for a beer lover, I find it to be quite good and worth the $8 spent on it. It was very refreshing on a hot day by the grill but I could also see this being great for cooler conditions as well. Good beer.

Bottled. Poured medium-deep orange with a short layer of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet biscuity notes, caramel, and rye.. some vanilla right on the back of the nose.. came across a bit too sweet. The flavor found sweet nutty notes, vanilla, and caramel at the core, with tart citrus and herbal notes around.. finished sweet with vanilla, nutty notes, and slightly aged hop bitterness. Light-medium bodied, more tart than expected, and a bit tacky on the palate.. this didn’t come together for me.

Amber pour, smell of light bready malts and coconut. Flavor is again coconuty, slight metallic, not much else.

Not bad, by any means. A nice nuttiness to the aftertaste. I taste no form of "hemp" in there at all, but I suppose it's just in there for the nutty taste.

Unfortunately mild. There is little character in this beer despite having the distinction of a rye addition that should have lent it more spicyness.

Since I just ripped on Chocolate Cherry Stout, I also will put in my assessment of this brew from long ago. It was just bitter and skunky to me, not worth it at all. After these two sad sad beer purchases I pretty much stayed away from OFallon altogether.

Had this from a bottle at rocket. Cloudy orange taste. Bitter and somewhat unpleasant. Peanut and spicy flavor. Earthy. Doesn't do it for me
