First had: on tap at Rogue, Portland, OR

Free sampler! Poured a dark brown color, slightly hazy, with a thin wisp of off-white head. Nutty aroma, a bit bland...didn't really get too much from it. I assume they use hemp seeds in this beer, which is apparently a thing now. Taste was pretty mellow, nutty, vegetal, organic, woody, a little toasted bread...nothing amazing, but pretty good, pretty smooth. Light-medium body, and pretty easily drinkable.

*Labelled as a "dark hemp beer." I can't seem to find a definitive description of this beer; some sites call it a dark lager, some say it's an ale...I'll just call it an amber ale and anyone can fix it later.
