COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
That’s right, there’s hemp in this smooth, polished amber ale. To be specific, we use hemp seed - one of the oldest and healthiest of ingredients - to create a subtle toasted nutty flavor that compliments the hops (a botanical cousin to hemp) and rye. We use Cara Rye and Malted Rye for a subtle spiciness and rich ruby color and Victory Malt to tie together the flavors with a nuttiness that compliments the hemp seed flavor. German Hallertauer hops add seasoning and we finish with Cascade hops for a crisp citrus aroma and taste. This wide assortment of flavors harmonize, creating a uniquely smooth and flavorful beer! Enjoy!

Botttle. Pours a thin amber with almost no head. Aroma IS sweet malt. Taste IS the same. There is no rye or hops to speak of (IMHO). Nasty diacetyl up front. Never again.

Clear amber with a thin cap of white head. The nose is very complex with an earthy spicy kinda herbalness and caratoffee. The taste is herbal and earthy with a sackcloth kinda tone and mild bitterness and mild toffee. Smooth semi-dry finish. A bit of piney resin but not much. Kinda amber malty tones mixed with "hemp" (not entirely sure what it smells like but I imagine like herbal grains) and piney hops.

I was surprised actually here by the drinkableness of this. Don't ask me much else cause it was also forgettable ... No peaks to stand out but a decent pick in a pinch... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOSSbrewer (2706) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Tastes like a mediocre homebrew. Pours a hazy amber with two fingers of head. Slight citrus aroma with some caramel. Tastes like caramel and earthy but like dirt, not in a good way. Finishes pretty dry. Medium to light bodied.

Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of orange, toffee and grain. The flavor is similar with some toffee and biscuit notes up front and some orange and grass notes coming through later. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

WooPigBrewey (46) - North Little Rock, Arkansas, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Flavor starts with some citrusy hops in the front, giving way to a very earthy/musky character with some caramel flavors throughout. Not sure about what the hemp adds, but I think the rye gives it sort of a nutty hint.

7/20/2010: O’Fallon Hemp Hop Rye Amber Ale... Aroma: Spicy and earthy; hints of citrus and tobacco; subtle caraway seed? Appearance: Mucky amber color with a dense head of beige-colored foam; decent head retention that slowly collapses to a frothy crown. Flavor: Earthy and floral/herbal; toffee maltiness; lots of spicy rye evident; bread crust and a tinge of tobacco; slightly nutty (from the hemp?); grassy/spicy hoppiness; mild bitterness that escalates with each sip;. Palate: Medium-bodied; easy to drink. Overall: Flavorful and unique; I love rye and really enjoyed this beer; I recommend this beer and look forward to having it again soon...

12 fl. oz. bottle () from Party Town in Bellevue, KY. Rating #151 for this beer.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
