3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Pizza Port - Carlsbad. Pours a bright, clear-orange color; thin, off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Decent amounts of husky malts, candy sugar, and oranges in the aroma; slightly reserved but nicely dry. Medium mouthfeel: solid carbonation, nicely toasty malt core featuring dried oranges, toast, and a light amount of honey; nice mineral / earthy bitterness at the edges, balancing things out; very crisp, well-done amber. Medium finish: toasty malts, mineral bitterness; nicely dry end.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Aroma is clean, some malt and a little hop. A very light amber, almost a deep gold. Clavor is a clean malt profile with a touch of caramel in there. Medium bodied. Finishes dry. Not a ton of intensity to the flavors, but extremely drinkable. I can see why this is a best seller in house. A great pair to much of the food there.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an amber color with white head. Not really that interesting, but still well done for an amber. A little bit biscuity, with light fruit, caramel, and some floral hops. hints of spice. Pretty nice easy drinking beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
OK, here I am trying the highest rated beer at Pizza Port. I know what your thinking "What? Chronic only has a rating of 3.2, it isn’t the highest!" Well, I’ve heard it is the best selling beer here. I have always assumed it was because of the name Chronic, and because it is brewed with Hemp seeds. I always hear people rave about it while sitting at the bar: "You’ve gotta try the Chronic!" OK, now I’m trying it. Yellow amber color. Small off-white head. Very little aroma. Taste is sweetish. Low bitterness. Maybe a hint of butter, but not in a bad diacetyl way. Decent quaffable beer. Much better than I anticipated. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a crystal clear copper amber with a small white head. Light fruity malty presence in th aroma, nothing too big and bold. The flavor is more on the fruity side. Some pear or apple in there with a big malt presence. Not too syrupy or malty, but had some decrent flavor in there. Not as earthy as I expected it to be, especially with the name. This name should only be named to an IPA of some sort.

Draft... RBSG ‘08... Clear, deep golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose has a biscuity, sweaty thing going on that I don’t like. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Leans just a hair on the sweet side of balance. Toffee and biscuit. Crisp, lightly sweet finish.
