COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our customers can’t get enough of this amber ale that was orginally brewed with hemp seeds, but tastes just as good without them.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2009
On tap at the brewpub in San Clemente. Pours a clear, copper-orange body with a thin, cream-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of thick, layered lacing. Sweet and malty aroma with lots of caramels. A light amount of toasted toffees, fruit, nut, and earthy citrus. Similar flavor, more noticeable earthy bitterness and more bready than the aroma. Medium bodied and finishes slightly dry with a soft hop linger. Overall, a solid, well balanced amber ale with more spice than most.

nickd717 (3457) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Tap at Boonville Beer Fest. Reddish-amber color with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt, fruity notes, and mild hops. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, spicy/fruity notes, and some hops. Medium palate. Hemp? Uh...if you say so.

Taverner (1081) - San Ramon, California, USA - APR 10, 2009
Dry hopped cask version at PP Carlsbad. Amber with a cloudy body. Nose is hoppy, with grassy flavors. Bready with light bitter notes.

ajm (1063) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Cask at San Clemente. Clear red-brown color, aroma of wheat, nut, sugar. Flavors of mild hops, more sweet nuttiness and cream. Finish is a mild graininess and rather abrupt.

BeerFanDan17 (973) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - JAN 26, 2009
On draft at Pizza Port Sam Clemente. A nice ale with a somewhat sweet character. Nice and smooth overall.

DuffMan (6436) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2009
On tap @ Pizza Port, Carlsbad. Clear orange-amber, fruity caramel aroma and flavour. Nothing special, but well-made and very sessionable medium-hoppy amber.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 18, 2009
(11/3/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Carlsbad. Slightly hazy amber color. Aroma is pretty weak with some malt and caramel notes. Sweetish malty flavor with some toast and caramel and a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

2.6
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2008
Tap. Amber coloured brew with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly fruity and a bit sweet and nutty. Flavour has a kiss of buttery diacetyl that I can’t really say I care for. Chewy with a light sweet nuttiness and a chewy earthiness as well. Light toastiness with some soft maltiness and a lingering grassy flavour.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 28, 2008
On tap at deep orange body and a white head. Hardly any aroma at all. Taste is spicy and malty husky with an odd aftertaste. Slightly fizzy and a bit on the dry side.

LtDan (1743) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 7, 2008
I see the locals get this beer by the pitcher, and wonder why I havent tried it. Now I know why. Pours a beautiful amber/red. Smells like Henry Weinhardt and tastes like it. Real nutty and bready but neither make it enjoyable.
