Torben Matthew’s Tasting, Aarhus, Bottled, 181110. Golden with white head. Aroma of malt and characteristic hemp spiciness. Flavor weak with notes of spice. chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 .5L mug at Siebensternbräu in Vienna. Luckily, I tried this ’gimmicky’ beer.
The brewery’s description --"golden lager with a sweetish, herbal twist; The aroma of whole hemp leaves" -- is on target. This slightly hazy, golden lager has a bone head that leaves exceptional lacing. The aroma features malt + herbal + meaty smoke; the latter being unexpected and virtually undetectable upon tasting.
Medium/full body with excellent carbonation. Creamy smooth yet a bit lively too.
Hemp flavor? ... yes, I think ... an unusual herbal flavor in any case. spice and hops and baked bread in the fine aftertaste. Excellent sweet/bitter balance.
O: a unique lager with a substantial malt and herbal base. Enjoyed from start to finish. If in Vienna, worth the trip. djoeye (5343) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2016
Pale golden body with pearl head. Sweet aroma, butterish honey caramel, malts and sourish leaves. Taste has honey, butter, caramel and citric grass - leading to a fruity finish. Fruity and normal on palate. Past BB with 3 months, but still nice. [50cl.btl 4.7%abv @Finn’sCastle provided.by.Finn] tricksta_p (5341) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2015
From tap at 7 Stern Bräu. Aroma of grainy malt, hint of floral, hint of spicyness. Flavour is light to moderate bitter. Quite similar to their Helles and it does not deliver on the promise of hemp. Iznogud (4691) - CROATIA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle, from the brewpub. Pours hazy orange, small white head. Sweetish, herbal, malty, bit spicy. Not very good.

Medium hemp aroma. Pale ornage color. Medium hemp taste, a little bit watery, crispy. Dry, light bitter aftertaste. A like the hemp aroma, but this one’s more for a hot summer day. mile (4067) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel, some vegetable spiciness (hemp?). Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light spiciness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and some spiciness. Way too sweet/too much caramel for me. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2007
[On draught at the brewpub]
Hazy pale yellow colour. Citrusy, perfumy nose with notes of elder. Rich flowery and fruity in flavour with elder present. Stalk-ish mouthfeel. Notable bitterness and very dry. Flavourful beer. tomer (3845) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 11, 2012
Draught at the brewpub, smallish head, a touch hazy yellow colour, light malty aroma with with hints of fruit and herbs, citrusy flavour with some herbs, light bitterness. Not much differentfrom your average lager, nothing special.
