Millennium Buzz Beer is a hemp-based red lager made with the finest B.C. hemp, dark roasted Alberta malt and choice German hops. It's cold-filtered with no preservatives or additives. This healthy mix of pure, wholesome ingredients - plus the natural goodness of hemp - accounts for its singularly clean, smooth refreshing taste.

Nice rot-braun pour. The nose is obnoxiously malty : very malt-extracty. It smells like various Butterfinger and Clark Bar brand packaged candies dipped in jam -- only alcoholic. There is a tempting layer of strawberry syrup in the bouquet, but this is not enough to save it. On the palate it is serviceable, possessing tart red berry fruit, powdered sugar, sourdough lemon and pharmacy flavors. It is bizzarre, yet rustic and pitiable. One wouldn't dump this out when offered. On the other hand, only the beer-starved could harbor desire for this juicy monster. (562 characters)

Good in the first few minutes out of the bottle when aggressive carbonation hits with the hemp vegetable. I guess that's why its popular with the moterbike crowd in the rough part of town. If open more than a few minutes , pour out. Some malt, some bitterness. A brewery that can be safely skipped. (298 characters)

Pretty good looking beer. Clear copper colour with a good-sized rough head that settles to a substantial film.

Nothing remarkable or really distinctive about the aroma apart from a slight muskiness. Taste is dry and somewhat grassy (!) but does not have any real noticeable hemp to it. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Palatable, but nothing special. (345 characters)

Bought the bottled version; I assume it's pasturized although the label boasts no preservatives, Finest BC hemp, roasted Alberta barley and German hops. I gotta say on this second visit of this beer; that marriage of interprovincial resources and international ingredients and style simply...works in an unassuming way if served cold.

Pours a reddish brown with a rocky 2 finger head that goes to a nice thin lace. Aromas of subdued musty malts and grassy hop and roasty hemp notes...I think this beer attempts to emulate the great straight forward roasty-malty,alts on the front end then blends the sour hops and hemp toasted nuttiness to provide a spicy toasty departure with a meditate finish where the hemp/hop combo puts a sourish drying effect over the toasty malts and finishes clean. Unpretentious..straight forward hemp spiced red lager..able to stand against more complex brews in it's frank delivery of it's ingredients to the palate..If there's a fault it's that the bottled version is a tad over carbonated...still.a fairly good specialty beer...I'll keep some around. (1,085 characters)
