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.

San Clemente: Delicious! Despite Pizza Port having other standout brews, this Carlsbad Chronic has to take the cake! It's absolutely addictive. Copper in the glass. Malty with a touch of bitterness. I could simply drink this all day long due to its slight sweetness. Hemp seeds, eh?

Like just about everything the brewery does, it kicks this ale up San Diego Style! Hopped up and smooth as silk. Lovin it!

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.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2008 Great head good aroma. Super malt yet a bit of lager taste. The hops are really mellow, hiding behind a caramel malt flavor. Not perfect, but the highest score I have ever given to a beer with "lagery" in the description.

On tap, pours a slightly hazy dark orange, almost light brown. Thin head, lacing was medium. Aromas of sweet and german malts, some citrus from the hop nugs. Taste is sweet, with balanced malt profiles dominating, lemongrass, pepper, caramel, woodiness finishes with a honey hop bite. Not the best amber ale but still sessionable and with a name like this you know it is gonna sell.

Good beer. I think i like the pizza port better than the beer. It was good, for a hemp beer. I figured it would bbe too spicy, but it was a good mix.

Had this on tap at Najas Place. This wasn’t bad at all, very typical amber ale I guess, went down nice and smooth........I think I got high drinking this hehe.

On tap at Pizza Port C’bad. Pours clear amber with a frothy head that left a nice thin lacing. Nose is sweet malt, crisp and clean, start is sweet and has a nice grain profile with the top middling in it feel. Finish has a pleasant acidic bite, the hops delectable in their spiciness, dry aftertaste a nice break from getting slammed over the head with all the west coast hop bombs out here right now! It is the chronic~
