A: Pours a clear amber with a creamy, pillowy white head.

S: Aromas of caramel, lemon, biscuits, black pepper, toasted hemp seeds, and rye bread present themselves on the nose.

T: Notes of caramel, toffee, roasted nuts, rye bread, black pepper, herbs, lemon, lime, and hemp seed coat the palate. The finish is long and turbulent with caramel, rye bread, lemon, and black pepper notes vying for dominance.

M: Medium in body, dryish, and unusually velvety in the mouth. Carbonation is firm, but not all that intense. Very drinkable for the style.

O: This is a very nice little ale. I have no clue why I put off trying this for so long because I really enjoyed the unusual mélange of flavors presented by this beer. Definitely worth trying for fans of the style.

Appearance - an amber color, with no head at all.

Smell - a sweet caramel malt smell, with a the hops coming in a bit.

Taste - like the smell, but with the rye giving the beer a base.

Mouthfeel - Good carbonation, but it was a bit weak.

Overall - Not that bad, I'm not sure what hemp taste like so its nice to try a beer like this; something different.
