Keg @ Dragonmead. Amber pour with a small head. General spice. Light toastiness. Unappealing diacetyl flavor, also quite slick on the tongue. Some sickly / tart red apple skin. Flawed. deyholla (12590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2017
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear deep amber with a brown hue and a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has grains and a hemp note with a bit of bread underlying. Flavor has hemp and butterscotch with straw and grains backing. gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2010
On tap at brewery. Reddish brown with a thin head. Not a lot of taste to this beer. Light chocolate nuttiness. No hint of hemp or any harvest quality. darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Growler thanks to Kevin. This beer rocks. Due to its makeup its not gonna score high but its actually a damn good and unique beer. Nose is crazy with spicy french bread. I mean dead on crusty french bread. Pretty awesome really. Flavor is extreme french bread up front with a slight spicy rosemary like quality on the backend. A bit of hops. Medium body but not thin or watery. Really nice and unique beer. Super cool. thedm (6320) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2008
First off let me say that I am disapointed by Dragonmeads brews at the present. I have gotten the impression that with the prices of their ingredients going sky high, they have cut back on the quantity of their ingredients in their brews. The end result is much weaker than usual brews. The aromas and flavors all appeared weak IMHO. With that said, on to the rating. This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated brown colored body. The almost non-existant aroma was brown malt and nutty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of nutty and brown malt. Not one that I would likely buy again.

On tap at Dragonmead. Clearish red-brown body, medium tight cream head. Thin, toasty body with light sweetness, balanced by leafy, herbal, bitter hops. Somewhat lifeless and by-the-numbers. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2007

Decent beer. Drank it before the incubus show in a large jug. Has a light red color to it, with minimal head steve23mj (273) - Essexville, Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2005
Pours dark copper brown with light tan head. Nose is somewhat malty with a streak of nuttyness. Slight flowery notes. Flavor is lightly chocolaty with unique roastyness. Not sure what Hemp seeds taste like, but this definitely has a virginlike flavor. Mild dry finish. Styles (2016) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2004
Tap: Poured a dark brown ale color with light head. Couldn’t pinpoint any aroma. Nice balance in the flavor but dry and watery at the same time. Tempted to say could have been an older batch. Will try again just in case.
