Nose
Highly perfumed, slightly gingery and a little sappy.
Palate
Spicy and perfumed with tart gingery/lemony elements and some sweet, floral peppery bits.
Finish
Dry, hoppy and perfumed but not warming as might be expected from the spice or strength.
Comment
Hemp leaves and flowers are the unusual ingredients in this hazy golden attempt to reflect the old ways of seasoning beer. It's pleasant enough, but seems rather contrived.
