COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our customers canít get enough of this amber ale that was orginally brewed with hemp seeds, but tastes just as good without them.

copper pour with moderate off white head. really nice balance of mild malts and citrus hops that created a more intense flavor than the ingredients on their own. good b/c ambers are usually uneventful in my opinion, i.e. not enough malt or not enough bitter.

Some amber colour with white head. A good bitter but I didnít really get the hemp taste, and I think thatís a good thing. Like a decent, and slightly spicey-fruity amber. All of the lineup is nicely carbonated.

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2006
Copper orangeade, a thin ring of lace surrounded shy little head islands dancing in the center.
Almost a white wine acidic/fruity crispness in the nose, the hops eventually come out quite juicy, like sweet strawberries.
My first couple of sips didnít register much for me, carbonation was quite lively and it tasted pretty light, with a dry, if sudden finish. Very low hops. It did end up growing on me, enough to say that this is a pretty decent Beer that, granted, looks pretty pale next to the competiton at Pizza Port, but it would easily beat every other "Amber" ale Iíve had at just about every other brewpub Iíve been to in the States in a head-to-head tasting. At least this one smelled nice.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 26, 2006
On tap at The Local in SD. Pours a light amber with a medium white head. Sweet floral aroma from the hops. medium caramel sweetness and a swell bitter citrus hop finish. Has a discernable tea flavor, but Iím not getting any acetaldehyde mentioned by BŁck Dich. Maybe my ADH activity isnít high enough?

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2006
Amber body with minimal white head. Hoppy aroma to start but moves into caramel notes. Flavour is fruity and herby with a nice bitterness to the finish.

mjg74 (2486) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 28, 2006
Tap. Pours a brown/amber color. Sweet slightly hoppy aroma. Burnt hoppy flavor right up front. Some caramel notes. Sweet slightly fruity finish.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 4, 2006
Draught at Pizza Port Carlsbad
Pellucid amber color, caramel. Thin head and lacing. Nose is light with some crystal malt, a bit of doughy malt and some light hops to balance. Definitely on the lighter hoppy scale. Light acedylhide in the flavor when really puffed. A mediocre amber ale with a lightly hoppy and sharp/dry finish.
