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!

Pours a hazy light copper into a tulip glass. Two fingers of off white head that dissipates to a sustained film and leaves good lacing. Aroma of caramel and bread with some earthiness and a hint of light fruit. Rye and pumpernickel bread with toffee and toasted malt. A nice earthy flavor with very little hop presence. Mouthfeel was semi full and somewhat sticky with light carbonation. Beer relies on its malt bill to provide most of the flavor. Good but leans toward being too sweet and could have used a bit more carbonation for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A beverage that arrives with minimal expectations because, really, what do you expect with so many ingredients? One quality this does not have is much of an aroma -- too many ingredients? But it looks darn fine and goes down with little trouble with a snappy little finish that gives a hint of the hop combo.

(12oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and herbs. Flavor of orange, grass, toasted rye, earthiness, florals, and caramel.

Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 5/4/14. Aroma of menthol and malt. Malty flavor with cherry character before a hoppy finish. Some very odd things going on with this beer.

Spruce hops, very hoppy. Having made rye bread before I can taste the rye and dareisay that adds a rye/bread-y element. Aroma ok, amber really just a basic amber taste...

Bottle. Pours clear amber thin white lacing. Aroma of sweat bread, caramel, and toast. Taste is quite sweet. Medium body, smooth slick texture, bit of a funny butterscotch aftertaste from the combination of ingredients. Ok overall for something different.

This smelled great. Toffee and malts, very English. The flavor was a bit malty but the rye was noticeable in that this was difficult to pin down. Good

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.

bottle thanks to keir. not much in the aroma. slightly sweet. flavor is sweet with a slight buttery note. slight flavor but not much. really just beer. not much else. some pepper in the very end of the finish. not bad, but just not memorable.

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.
