Consumed in October 2004 at the Toronado in San Francisco, CA. Came back from the restroom and said to my best friend. "Hey, I thought I told you to get me a Hemp Ale". He said. "I did"?!?! Confused as I looked at the brew and saw a deep dark red brown beer in front of me. Hell, it almost looked like a dark brown ale in front of me. I didn't expect such a dark coloring. I didn't see the pour, but it still had a considerable head on it and some lacing creeping down the side after a few sips. Tasted a bit bitter. Some heavy malt tastes as well as some fruityness and some hops in there too. Nice carbonation. Didn't really stike me as a great beer. Maybe a decent ot good beer. Wouldn't waste my time with a pint of it on tap again, but at the same time, I would think about it if it went on sale for a good price at the local Safeway. Moderate beer that I am glad I tried.
Serving type: on-tap
