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.

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.

Hemp brown

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.
