Bowen Island Brewing Hemp Blonde Ale

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.

  1. Bowen Island Hemp Blonde Ale is very hangover friendly, and is actually quite drinkable, one of the few canned beers I’ll actually drink, and it’s VERY cheap (under $10 for a 6 pack), besides, if it wasn’t as popular it wouldn’t be hard to get, which it is. I dunno…

    • Thank you for reading, and for your comment Philip. I think on the whole Bowen Island makes the best beer for the price I have ever seen! Their price point is great! I have been meaning to revisit this beer, since sometimes you can get a bad batch depending how it was handled in the store.
      Also, I really like almost every BC beer I drink, so when one doesn’t suit my taste I will rip into it probably a little more than it deserves… Just to bring balance to the force:)
      Have a great day!
