4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is, according to the press, the first of its kind this side of the Mississippi--it’s a hemp ale! Yes, hemp! I don’t notice too much "grassy," though, but it’s a very nice tasting beer--creamy, a little nutty, with a great hop profile.

a decent darker summer beer, but still light in taste and mouthfeel. pours a transparent brown color with a quickly dissipating head. definitely does not scream "hemp" but has a certain earthy quality to it. nice sweetness some hoppiness for interest. not my favourite from the wedge but decent nonetheless.

On tap at The Wedge, this pours a deep walnut with a thin eggshell cap. The nose is of grain and herbs. The flavors are malty, with some toasted herbs, grains/husks, finishing with grainy earthen bitters. The mouthfeel is a bit lighter with soft carbonation and medium body. Hits WELL on a gorgeous blue-sky day.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at wedge... Pours a turbid caramel toffee brown hue and topped with a thin creamy white head... Husk and grainy nose with coinciding teal herbalness and sweet dark grains... Flavors are mildy sweet, somewhat watery, with malty caramel and toasted grain. A modicum of earthy bitterness comes through late. Lacking in flavor somewhat as the aroma offered more nuances. Ok.

This poured a brown color with a white head. The aroma contains some caramel, herbal notes, and a bit of citrus. The flavor is both hoppy and malty with caramel and nutty flavor on one side and a citrus bite on the other. All hemp beers I’ve had are a little bit bitter, this is no exception. Overall a pretty good beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours brown from tap with an inch of white foam. Faint nuttiness on the nose. Some sweet maltiness on the tongue. Finishes has some hoppiness to it. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A pleasant surprise. Aroma is subtle but the taste is not. Tastes like a middle of the road Pale Ale with a nice bitter finish. Good beer
