Leave it to Bowen Island Brewing to have a hippy-ass named brew like this. This beer has a mildly foggy look (imagine a hippy’s living room) with a dark amber colour(imagine a hippy’s teeth).
I don’t know why they would name it this, unless they actually put hemp in it… There are far better names with the same innuendo. “uncle herb’s blonde ale” or … Oh, “Bud” is already taken… Never mind…
as for the taste, it is sickly sweet and spicy like a sip of cheap sherry (just a lot milder, thank God).
Although this beer isn’t quite in the “what were they thinking!?” league of Gentleman Jim, or Father John (you can search my site if you don’t know what I am talking about…) it is most certainly bad.
It is a good thing they are putting this whizz in their combo pack, because there is no way anyone in their right mind would buy this.
Mind you, judging from the name, they are marketing it to stoners anyway… Maybe they are on to something.
