Humboldt Brown Ale brewed with
toasted hemp seeds
Humboldt Brown Ale is
a one-of-a-kind brew that boasts an incredibly rich profile. Toasted hemp seeds
added to the brewing process gives this brown ale an unique herb-accented
flavor. A wonderful brown ale that is full of complexity. Hemp Ale is great with
food or by itself. American hops create a perfect balance to the darker malts
used in this brew. This brown ale is brewed with premium two row malt, wheat
malt, Crystall 75, Crystal 120, chocolate malt and of course toated hemp seeds.
The brewers use Chinook and Tettnager hops.
Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Pours slightly cloudy deep reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head
with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy
lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of
caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, biscuit, light chocolate, light nuttiness,
herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good
balance and complexity of dark malt and light hop/hemp notes; with solid
strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, light
chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Minimal
bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee,
biscuit, brown sugar, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, and toasted
earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark malt
flavors with light hop/hemp presence; with no cloying flavors after the finish.
Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that
is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the
finish. Overall this is a nice brown ale. Good balance and robustness of dark
malt flavors and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
