COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Affiliated with the Nectar Ales experience through shared origins at Humboldt Brewing Company, Hemp Ale is a one-of-a-kind brew that boasts an incredibly rich profile and unique herb-accented flavor that is attributable to the incorporation of hemp seeds into the brewing process. A wonderful brown ale full of complexity Hemp Ale is great with food or by itself. American hops create a perfect balance to the darker malts used in this brew. This brown ale is the Gold Medal winner for first place in its category at both the 1999 and 2000 California State Fair Craft Brewing Competitions.

Poured from the bottle it has a medium brown color with a small head. It has a nutty aroma but the flavor is full. There is something unique about the taste possibly the hemp seeds that produce a small bite but give it a good finish.

This beer has a wonderfully complex yet smooth flavor. It pours a beautiful reddish brown. A great ale amongst a field of ales with little distinguishing characteristics. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: pours with a medium tan head that settles into a moderate density, the beer is a very nice semi transparent brown color with some amber hues to it, Aroma: maple syrup, kind of faint, very slight hop tang Taste: slightly sweet, has a very faint hop bitterness on the finish, also finishes with some toasted malt Palate: average carbonation, light mouthfeel, faint bitter aftertaste Overall: not a bad beer, would be easily sessionable, nothing stands out that makes it great though, a bit bland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the Beer Fest in Davis, CA.Poured a copper color with an off-white head. Not spectacular about this one. Sweet malty flavor with a slighty metallic aftertaste. I did notice a little bit of the spicy flavor. Not bad, but nothing I would buy again.

Horribly underwhelming in most respects. It pours a ruby red and magenta color with a white and slightly opaque head that dissipated very quickly. The aroma is filled with malts, almonds, cherries, cranberry, and something rustic. The body is very juice-like and light with a heavy cranberry and syrupy malty finish. I feel like i just swallowed a glass of boysenberry syrup or ate some pancakes. I'm not quite getting any hemp flavor, just more malt than anything. A strange acetic bitter maltiness is all thats truly out of the ordinary. Medium carbonation, and light mouthfeel...not very appealing other than as an "i tried it..". Next please....

Aroma is sweet, syrupy, lots of dark crystal malt, milky. Flavor is fairly dry, coffee-roastiness, rather one-dimensional. Clean, spicily bitter finish.

12oz into a pint. Pours a solid brown, needless to say brown astounding coating, deep caramel covering, and malty backbone. Taste is malty, organically fresh, hoppy, some rasisn, some fig, some bark, all blended nicely with the forthcoming product. Hemp shades the afterthought until ne is reminded, then it comes into play as it should be there. A very solid brown with a hippy flare that lasts throughout the brew. Spicey and enjoyable.

Browns red brown with tan head. Slightly hoppy aroma, strong brown malt taste. Solidly sessionable.
