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.

Received a can of this beer as an extra in a trade. Was not expecting much after looking at other reviews on BA. I was pleasantly surprised how drinkable this beer is. The taste is easy on hops with just enough malt to please the palette. The beer is pretty smooth for an amber ale with just the right carbonation to allow you to enjoy gulping down like a good summer brew. I realized that a beer doesn't have to have big bold flavors to be very satisfying.
