A pint at the Stone Brewery on 10/14/10
Not sure of the availability. Couldn't find it listed among the Firestone beers but saw that it was brewed by another brewery and purchased by Firestone about 5 years ago.
A bit uninteresting. Brown with no signs of carbonation and clear. Little head/lace and no retention (as expected for cask). Some caramel in the aroma, but nothing to write home about. Flavor is consistent with aroma, maybe a bit more interesting. More carbonation up front than expected, caramel notes in middle, but quickly fading. Nondescript finish. Thin mouthfeel.
Serving type: cask

1/2 finger light brown head atop a brown, ruby-hued body.
brown sugar and wet cardboard and a little horse blanket tossed in there. meh, but keeping in mind it is a hemp ale i would look for toasted hemp aroma, which happens to be the aforementioned.
Moderate bitterness, sweet with a subdued brown sugar and buttered toast and some mineral flavors in the finish. hops are in back and finish with a chocolatey-earthy character.
very dry in the finish.
i could session this.
Serving type: on-tap

Snake river pint glass, growler from brewery
A: Pours like root beer, dark drown/caramel color and lighter shades of ruby on the edges. This growler is a few days old, and carbonation isn't great.
S: Good, smells sweeter than I was expecting. I'm definitely pulling banana and spices out on the nose, and a sweet caramel malt bill. Some nuttiness underneath that.
T: Pretty standard fare, besides that tang of banana; sweetness, nuttiness, some earthy dryness but not a lot. Definitely lots of sweet bread and toasted biscuit character here.
MF: Wishing for a bit more carbonation; it's a touch syrupy right now but not cloyingly so. Feels medium bodied, and semi-dry.
O: Pretty good brown ale. An easy drinker on the sweeter side, and this beer lacks that unpleasant aftertaste that drives me away from brown ales.
Serving type: growler
