One of the best copper ales I have ever had my lips on! The taste was outstanding alongwith the aromas....a classic with new world feel!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yeah, I’m not getting any "kronik" aromas here either (i.e. nothing marijuanna-ish at all), so unless they are in some way referring to the higher alcohol content, I’m not sure what they are getting at with the name. Just as I did with the pils, I’m getting a weird olive vibe in the aroma, and after I get used to it, I can pick out some caramel. Quite a malty palate, a little on the sweet side. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Rogue Public House in San Francisco. Amber with a white head. Thick wall of lace. There’s not much here! Is this supposed to be a hemp ale? It certainly does not have any of the hemp flavor I have tasted in other such beers. Maybe a little bit of tea flavor. Mild hops. Boring.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 Sweet citrusy aroma with slight hoppiness. Pours an orangey-amber color. Fizzy carbonation with fairly thin body. Flavors of caramel, molasses, pear, orange, and very slight hoppiness. Not bad, not great. I also have no idea why this is called kronik...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet caramel mixed with citrusy hop aromas. Light tan head, clear reddish brown. Light body with a rich malty sweet flavor. Just enough bittering hops to balance the sweetness but with a dry finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2007 I am really starting to get into this brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel color with a small tan head that fades. The aroma is sweet grapefruit and pine. The flavor is sweet and sugary with a strong grapefruity hop element and a caramel undertone. The finish is sweet and fruity. Yum.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a clear copper with a thin, off-white head, low carbonation from the 12 oz bottle. Gentle aromas of caramel and dark fruits. Flavors mimic the aromas with the addition of a nice balanced hop presence. Thin in body for an ale like this, though the alcohol is well hiden.
