Thatís right, thereís 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!

A decent rye beer. Really hoppy and not too bitter. Not a beer I would get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rated on 8-11-2016 at The Hoppy Gnome. The appearance of this draft beer is a very small beige head that is fully lasting, hazy amber body, no carbonation observed, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is malt, sweet and a hint of rye. The flavor is lightly bitter, caramel malt, sweet, and a hint of rye. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer has a bitter aftertaste and a taste that I could not get a liking to. It is not a bad beer. The taste is somewhat odd.

Bottle pour from the Craft Beer Cellar, Clayton. Aroma is mild toasted malt, nuts, fruit. Appearance is beautifully clear, dark brown (like root beer) with nice sparkle, two finger-width pillowy beige head with nice retention and decent lacing. Taste is crackers with nuts, rye spiciness, light fruit, noble hops. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, average carbonation and dry, lightly bitter finish. Overall, appearance is the highlight with some interest in the taste but the flavors arenít bold enough. Tastes just better than a macro.

Tap at Hoppy Gnome. Bubbly, rich orange with a lasting head. Floral, clover, rye and a little grainy. Taste has a light bitterness with a homemade soap-like aftertaste. Lighter body with a fizzy feel.

Hazy copper colored liquid with a moderate, small bubbled, stable taupe colored head. Herbal, caramel rye aromas. Not much difference from a standard amber. Dry and earthy. A touch of malt sweetness kicks in at points, but the balance is off. A touch of fruit noted as well, with a bit of raspberry in the finish. Linger has some dry malt and herbs. Balance is off for me. Parts are ok and others have me guessing. Iím not even craving a brownie. 4/10

I had it on tap. It pours reddish with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma was malty and bready. The taste is kinda underwhelming with bread, herbal, grass, and caramel malt notes. It was crisp, refreshing, and sessionable. There just didnít seem to be a lot going on.

Poured from bottle a hazy deep copper/ amber with slightly off white head that receded to sides of glass quickly. Aroma was malt heavy, hay, Fresh cut hardwood, and a tinge of citrus on the nose. Taste similar but has a Brit brown nutty flavor and a citrus candy like zing on the tongue in the finish. Quite a bit going on here, reminded me of an ESB with Orangina.

Pours an amber (of course) color. No head. No lacing. No nothing. Itís a little cloudy, but otherwise, itís boring.

Aroma however is pretty robust. Lots of caramel and toffee. Maybe some earthy aroma. Itís also a little bready, and roasted nuts.

Taste is also pretty robust, Thereís a lot going on here. Sure, thereís something going on with the malts, Iím guessing itís the rye. The earthy and nutty that I smelled in the aroma, must be the hemp. Itís a little odd, itís a little different. I might even say itís a little weird. But itís not bad. Itís also a little spicy, white pepper maybe?

Mouthfeel is a little heavy. Iím guessing itís a medium bodied beer. Itís a little spicy, not bitter really, but spicy. Itís complex on the palate, but it works well, itís fun to try to decipher. Itís odd, and itís interesting. But it works. The final finish on it is earthy, maybe even piney.

Overall, I am a little surprised by this. Itís a little better than I expected. Except for the pour, it really does well. Itís complex, some reviews say that itís too much for a beer, but I think it does well.

On tap at ofallon brewery. Aroma of toasted seeds and a slight amount of rye and hops. Just a little spicy. Very nice looking dark amber color with a small fluffy white head. Taste is very hoppy up front with a smoky toasted character to it. The smoke is not overdone; this is still refreshing. Pretty good but I think I liked it better out of the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. I liked it despite the low ratings. For me it was crisp and refreshing and had a unique hop taste that was rare in these low shelf beers. Try it for yourself.
