A golden lager with a sweetish, herbal twist: The aroma of whole hemp leaves and the spicy bitterness resemble fresh - cut conifers and wild flowers. The hemp beer has a full, slightly sweetish body and an aftertaste that gives a long lingering unique impression of hemp. (Do not expect any other effects from this beer than a pleasant taste and a moderate alcohol content of less than five per cent ABV). MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2009

A bready malt pillow is scented with the fresh and enticing herbal spiciness of hemp in this quenching and riveting Helles mit hanf.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces atop the shiny golden gown.
-This lager is as well rounded as any other 7 Stern brew I’ve had.
-The base malt sweetness is nearly honeyed.
-The hemp is so well used, it admirably replaces the hops in both aroma, flavor and finish.
-This is perfectly balanced; this Slovak brewer really knows what he’s doing!
On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a reddish gold with a fizzy head. Lots of grass and flowery hops all over this one... and sweet. Hemp shows up at the end of the finish, but not over the top. Like a light IPA, done right. Kind of reminds me of one of the lagunitas zappa beers but I cant remember which one. Awesome beer, actually. chinchill (4993) - 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. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2014
bottle from the vending machine at the brewery. Hazy pale yellow, mid-sized white head. Malty base with lots of resiny and grassy hops. Very-well balabced, very nice indeed.

Bottled. Hazy pale orange. Fruity apricot aroma. Sweet and medium boduied with rounded mouthfeel. Fruity almond character from the hemp with some gentle grassiness behind. In typical 7Stern tradition the malt backbone is solid and vital. Some late bitterness. A thoroughly well made beer. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2010
Thanks to PilsnerPeter for sharing. Pale golden pour with a very thick, sticky white head. The nose is quite clean and fresh. A bit of soft herbal spiciness and a touch of nutty character as well. The flavour is nutty and sweet on the finish. As it warms up there is a touch of soft peppery spice on the back of the palate, but it’s pretty subtle.

Golden yellow color with a small white, lacing head. Hemp aroma is clearly there, not too much, not too subtle, just right. Honey, light hops, a hint of spices make this beer true to itself. It’s all about the hemp, and it delivers. High carbonation, and of course a hempy aftertaste. No alcohol taste. I really enjoyed this one, nicely done! lord_totenkopf (314) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 7, 2012
On tap at 7SternBräu. Opalescent yellow colour, bit hazy with white head. Aroma of lots of herbs, including hemp. Taste is very herbal and flowery too with grass, vegetables, mostly hemp. Medium hoppy bitterness, very nice brew all in all. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2012
Cloudy orange brown and a frothy white head. Floral, bit soapy lemon. Really nice. Taste is okay as well. Medium bitterness. Surprising.
