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

On draft, pours a clear copper color with thin head. Mild aroma. Sweet malty taste with just a little bitterness. I was expecting more hops out of this one. It was okay.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2008 On-tap PP Carlsbad. Pours an orange yellow color with a thinnish white head. Smells malty sweet not much else. Tastes malty and sweet as well. Some hay in there and very little hops as far as I can tell. Somewhat thickish, sickly sweet, crisp carbonation. With a name like Chronic I expected green buds, you know, hops!

I really like this beer, somehow I feel it is better than the ratings it received, but what do I know. Had it with a slice of pizza, damn good.
