Had this on tap - pint glass at about 45F I would guess.
A - Dark brown in color, slightly reddish. Not much head or lacing actually.
S - Mild aromas here - mainly malt, caramel and brown sugar. Slight hint of hops.
T - A mild flavored brew, and I have to admit I am not sure what the hemp connection is as it tasted quite standard and mild. I assume hemp is included in the recipe, but it seems like a labelling gimmick as it doesn't really reflect in the taste in any fashion. This seemed like a pretty basic brown ale. Mild roasted malts, just a touch of caramel sweetness, and a smidgen of floral hops.
M - Somewhat thin, but nicely carbonated. Fairly dry. Again, pretty standard for a brown ale.
D - A pint went down easy enough, although I can't really see the point of drinking more than one unless you are just looking for a simple brew. Meh... next!
