Notes/Commercial Description:
This smooth amber ale uses toasted hemp seed to create a nutty flavor in the finish that compliments the rye and hops (a botanical cousin to hemp). The wide assortment of flavors harmonize, creating a uniquely smooth and flavorful beer!

A clear amber in appearance with a small head. Light grassy aroma. The taste begins with a huge marijuana flavor, oily, resinous, dank. Then there is some toasty grain, then more resinous bitterness. Mouthfeel is good. Overall a decent beer, though I think the weed flavor was a bit too much (or perhaps it was psychosomatic?)

Serving type: on-tap

Drainpour!

12 oz bottle

I agree with a prior reviewer. The hemp, the hop, and above all the rye flavor was missing!

Appearance: brown, not really as 'amber' as others in the style

Smell: hop, but not much else

Taste: malty with grape juice. I felt like I was back in Jr. High drinking Juicy Juice?

What happened?

Mouthfeel: Watery

Overall, I was not pleased with this beer! Yet, I could have received a defective bottle or perhaps their was an error in shipping and handling from the distributor. Again, I was not pleased with this product, but I'll try it again on draught. Perhaps, I'll try another beer from this brewery!

Pours a clear amber with a small head that quickly disappeared. Just a thin film is left behind. Just a few specks of lace stick to the glass during consumption.

Not sure what this beer is after smelling it. Very fruity that reminds me of grape juice. I do not get hemp, hops, or rye. Very underwhelming.

Flavor is dominated by the fruitiness. Sweet malt. Tastes like a below average amber ale without all the superlatives in its name. The only interesting thing about the flavor is the slight rye spice but it is not enough to keep me interested.

Nice body and carbonation. Enjoyable texture that would be nice to drink if the flavor delivered.

Wow, was I mislead by the label on the bottle. The beer does not deliver what is advertised. Very disappointed. Is it an old bottle, who knows because there is no date listed, just some batch code.

I got this as part of a M&M 6pk from Woodman’s in Sun Prairie, WI in summer 2012.

Pours a clear, dark amber color with only a slight head. The scent is malty with some slight hints of hops and rye. Taste is mild and initially hits with a bold rye/toasted malt taste, however the flavor quickly diminishes. There is a slightly chalky after taste that leaves my mouth slightly dry. Better than average but could really use some work to make this a fantastic brew.
