Good look, had great head retention and nice brown color. Smell of toasty malts. Toasty malts not overpowering but there with a malty finish. great flavor overall and would recommend.

Bottle from America on Tap
Deep copper/ brown color with a decent tan head. Rich caramel maltiness with hints of chocolate. Light earthy hop. Decent brown ale, but I can't say what the hemp added.

No hemp flavor to speak of. Decent enough brown ale. Looks great and taste okay. I drank all 6 over 2 weeks but mostly because I didn't go to the beer store. I actually drank a bud ice before this. If that counts for anything.
