Tap at Block 15. From notes.
A: Dark, opaque mahogany with a thin off-white head.
N: Nut, toffee, caramel, sulfur, minerals, sarsparilla, toasted biscuit, and a nice underlying maltiness.
T: Bitter, lightly sweet, and clean.
M: Light body, no alcohol, spritzy carbonation.
O: This is solid with some good flavor. But it’s still a brown, albeit a very good one. Salmoniform (1281) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Poured from tap to glass at the pub. Brown hue with creamy tan head. Aroma is nutty, caramel, cream, butterscotch. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet with a balanced clean finish. Overall this is a fun brew. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2009

Tap @ the Mini Beer Fest... Poured deep amber/ruby/brown with a beige head. The hemp seeds were very noticeable in the aroma. Flavors were a tiny bit hoppy with a roasted nut, malt character. A sweet yeast and ester finish.
