Our customers can’t get enough of this amber ale that was orginally brewed with hemp seeds, but tastes just as good without them.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 27, 2008
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.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - NOV 27, 2008
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.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2008
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Poured a medium amber color with small off-white head and moderate lacing. Nose is sweet malt and a touch of hops. Taste is sweet malts, nuts and brown sugar with a mild earthy hop finish. Medium mouth feel. OK beer, not great but it will do.

JohnnyJ (4633) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 25, 2008
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.

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.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2008
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.

hopscotch (9737) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2008
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.
