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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in San Clemente. An amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of hops and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and malt, as well as lot of hoppy grass, leading to a rather bitter finish. Nice and refreshing.
