Sparky (2244) - 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.

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 (10999) - 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 dont like. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Leans just a hair on the sweet side of balance. Toffee and biscuit. Crisp, lightly sweet finish.

Ungstrup (36459) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2008
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.

From tap in San Clemente (!). Pours clear and golden orange with a lacing white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Light roasted caramel malt aroma. Light spiced and breadish bse flavour. Delicate fruity hops flavour on top. Goes into a nice hoppy finish.
