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.

Bottle. Brown/orange color with an brown sugar head that quickly fades. The nose is light, a bit of brown bread and raisin, there’s a floral herby aroma that may be the hemp, but I’m not certain. The taste is initially tart and a bit astringent, the hops are nicely balanced by the crystal malts. The palate is light and a bit watery.

Pours a clear dark brown with a reddish hue. Very little head. Aroma is malty. Taste of a decent brown, with (I guess) a hemp after-taste. Not that good of a palate, a little rough. All in all, this one is just OK.

Pours a light brown with a 1/2 finger head. Aroma is just kinda blah. Taste follows. A bit of hop profile but very blah overall. No "hemp" to be had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle bought at Oceanside RV Park in Charleston, OR. Pours hazy brown with red highlights; has a medium dissipating beige head. Aroma consists of light caramel, grass (hemp?). Taste is grainy, lightly sweet--pretty bland for a Firestone Walker affiliated beer. A bit too malty for me.

7/20/12. 22oz bomber from Hy Vee Moline, IL. Light brown pour, reds under the light, with a small tan head. Light caramel and nuttiness with a bit of dustiness and black tea. Light caramel and chocolate on the flavor as well with more dusty nuttiness and black tea. Meh.

Bottle shared by drowland, pours a clear reddish brown with a thin head, the aroma is very light with a little bit of caramel and chocolate, the flavor is very sweet but one note, all caramel and malt, nothing out of this world but drinkable.

glennmastrange (2924) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. Moderate roasted and nutty for the malt, light herbs for the yeast, faint dough and earth for the yeast, with a hint of toffee. Head is small, fizzy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is dark brown. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a lively carbonation. Not big fan of Brown Ales, and this one is just drinkable.

Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle. Smooth is a good way of describing this one. Taste is roasted nuts, caramel and charred wood. Decent.
