look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Amber with persistant haze, perhaps from flaked barley. with an off-white head that faded fast. Aroma and taste are prominently caramel. Overly so, to my palate, as I find this beer cloyingly sweet. There was something unique in that very first sip, either toasted hemp seeds or rye. It was not pleasant, but my palate quickly became overwhelemed by caramel. The hop character is very disappointing. Why call it hemp hop rye and then dial back the hops so much. There is something to the finish of the beer that is astringent, affecting taste and mouth feel. Upfront, the mouth feel is slick and oily, and the body heavy, thanks to the rye malt and crystal rye. This beer is the second six pack from O'Fallon that has left me disappointed. I don't think there will be a third.
