Whoa, what's this. Completely unexpected. A sweet caramel, bready and honey malt aroma, an insipid, vaguely citrusy hop aroma, just utterly bland. The palate is no better. Light but like sugar water, whole wheat bread dough, honey, caramel, chalky hop flavor, minimal bitterness, minimal flavor, this is a chore. Drain pour.

Whoa, now. Naming a beer "Chronic" around here is like, uh, naming a beer in Texas "Troy Aikman." And let me tell you, my peeps, this beer is not "chronic." Hell, this dang sucker isn't even bubble kush! It's more like Egyptian Tumble Weed. It's not sticky, it's not bubonic... Just no good, my children. No good at all.

Something to finish the night on and pours a orange amber hue with a fluffy three finger head that stays and leaves nice lacing,the smell is light citrus and toffee malts pretty boring really for something named chronic,the mouthfeel is light and a little overcarbonated with simple tastes of light citrus,candy malts and some herbal hop bitterness right at the end but the bitterness is soft and overall for a beer named chronic it lets you down in every aspect even if named john it still be dissapointing and I for one would not drink again and advise the same for someone getting excited like I did avoid cheers.

Appearance: No retention, no lacing, light and clear with a nice blood orange color.

Nose: Copper, malt, toffee, with a tiny pepper hotness at the end which is nice.

Taste: Malt biscuit, nutty, and pine.

Notes: I was not over the moon about this one.

Nice Amber ale but I still don't like them. I would rather have a Boston lager
