medium brown, somewhat hazelnut in color with a nice two finger head of tan lace on the top.
Lots of sugar and caramel were present and these were mixed in among a nice solid roasted malt back. Apparent nuttiness started to present itself as it warmed a little bit and the sweetness started to become more pronounced. To be honest it was not that pleasant. Far too sweet for me and I normally like the flavors. The maple sugar was just overpowering and quite harsh. There was a delicate roasted nut flavor in the back n just a harsh biting, sugary mess. There were traces of metallic tones as well, and these just added to the harshness.
Serving type: on-tap

On nitro-tap at Wedge Brewing Company, Asheville, NC
A: The beer is slightly hazy brownish amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high dense beige head that consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of herbs are present in the nose, which I presume must come from the hemp seeds.
T: The taste has herbal flavors along with notes of nutty malts. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The nitro-tap really imparts nice properties to the mouthfeel and appearance of this beer, elevating it a notch.

brewed with 150 pounds of toasted hemp seeds
a: served in a standard shaker pint glass, Derailed is a medium brown in color, slightly hazed, with thin but persistent coating of fizzy off-white carbonation
s: a pale malt backing provides a clean backdrop for the nutty and toasty aromas from the hemp seeds, very clean and bright with citrus pith hops, earthy, rye mild but adds some range
m: carbonation lively and a touch spritzy on the palate with a light-medium body - seems a touch thin to me
t: nutty and toasty hemps seeds are the prevalent flavor, pale malts provide a clean structure, hops provide a balancing bitterness and simple citrus pith flavors, mostly dry, very crisp finish
o: it's a bit simple but I don't wanna call it bland - it does a nice job making use of the toasty, oily hemp seed character that could be easily covered up, refreshing and drinkable
draft at the brewpub on a fine late Spring evening
