3.45/5  rDev +3.3%

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, metallic, and nut aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, biscuit, and nut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, but has an odd metallic quality in the aroma and a bit too flat of a mouthfeel in my opinion.

3.6/5  rDev +7.8%

Surprisingly sweet and malty for such a moderate-alcohol brew. Handsome coppery amber color with a decent head and plenty of lacing in the Saxo narrow tulip.

This has the classic Amber Ale profile, just a little lighter-- bitterish caramel taste with some herbal hop flavors. Pleasantly sudsy mouthfeel. Some fruity notes. Apple and a splash of iced tea with lemon. Some browned grain and bread flavors.

This is a more than adequate quaff with all the beery elements. Refreshing and less alcohol. I think icy cold is the right temperature for this. From the 16 oz can purchased at Sunset Beer Company in Los Angeles.

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.
