Smell of malt with a slight wine taste. Dark clear amber colour. Slight sweetness with bitterness on the end followed by a mild hemp taste Medium-light body with mild carbonation. A decent beer, but hemp is not evident enough to warrant further interest.

This is a clear amber beer w/ a big head. Its interesting more so than good but its still a reasonable thing to drink, I suppose. Its got a sort of caramel, vanilla, tobacco thing going on. Its sort of creamy in texture w/ medium carbonation. With some tweaking, this recipe could actually be legitimately good.

355ml slim can. Dark amber pour with a frothy creamy long-sticking off-white head. It is a bit carmaally and toasty very light roast. Unnofensive but gimmicky.

ChadPoole (350) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Pours red amber with a very fizzy and quick fading off white head. Small malt aroma. Taste of malts, grain and straw. Not an impressive beer.

AleRider78 (732) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2016
Comes in a cheap 4 pack. Has a foamy off-white head with a dark amber appearance. Malty aromas, wheats. Watery mouthfeel. Flavours are of weak citrus notes, light malts, some mild spices. If its made with hemp, I cant tell. Nothing too special, but for the price, well worth trying again.

Im not a lager man. I tried Buzz largely because I was curious about what a hemp beer would taste like. The answer: hay. Thats about it. A thoroughly forgettable beer kept aloft only by the gimmick of putting a marijuana leaf on the can.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
On tap at the Arrow and Loon.

Appearance: Pours a clear copper colour with little head.

Aroma: Malt

Flavours: Malt, rye, cereal, yeast.

Mouthfeel: Thinner with low carbonation.

Overall: Lots of malt and Im getting some rye. An okay beer but not one of my favourites.

gregorymconway (227) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015
Amber clear body with a quickly dissipating head. Bready euro-lager aroma. Some hop bite, reminiscent of a pilsner in character minus the color. Very thin.

lesifflebiere (1722) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
Boisson cuivre, limpide mais presque brune, sous une mousse gnreuse, rsultant dun gushing louverture de la petite canette. Nez de crales maltes et de sucre dorge ; la bouche est dans les mmes tons, mais encore plus puissamment que prvu. Got un peu herbeux, presque anis, qui doit provenir des graines de chanvre. Rien de vraiment intressant ici, oui a gote un peu spcial, mais a gote surtout la gamique commerciale pas si originale.

HippyHop (609) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
The pour is darker, and prettier, than I expected, but the head disappeared in less time than it takes to change the channel. Nose is grain and caramel, and something in the background that I guess is hemp(ish)? (Some pothead I am.) Taste is roasted grain and a whole lotta water, with a little bit of bland dryness on the finish. I knew the $5.50 4-pack was too good to be true. And I would like to know what "gold medal" this beer won, and from whom. Whoever it was strikes me as being poorly equipped to award gold medals. Gold stars to kindergarteners maybe.

The beer isnt bad, decent enough despite its very low ratings. I would drink it over any macro beer thats for sure. Price wise its a steal, competing near macro prices but tastes better, if im ever bit low on cash and dont want to buy some of the more expensive craft beers (granted they usually taste better) this would be the go to cheap beer, it gets an extra point for that!
