we found this at Moe's Center Street Beer Store Jupiter,Fla
poured into a pint glass , good carbonation which settles down quickly
copper colored and light amber malt nose
tastes of malt , honey, slight hop finish, not strong however
drinkability ?
considering the price we probably wont purchase another 6 pack it's ok

The Censored rich copper ale is what they call this on the label.
rather weak almost watered down ?

this reminds me of a another brewer that makes Monk in the trunk ale, so close it could be the same , come on quit rippin off the ale drinkers make some ale
instead of this corporate rripoff blaaaa

On tap at TPH 2/22/06.

My pint of The Kronic poured a deep copper with a suitable head. I have been meaning to try this beer for a while now and once I saw it on draught, I just couldn't resist. Unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations. I could not smell much of anything, and there definitely was no discrenable hop smell. Even worse, it tasted sickeningly sweet. It truly tasted like a pack of starburst. There was nothing to balance out the sweetness upfront, and until the slight hop bite as it went down, it was horribly unbalanced. The alcohol was well-hidden only because of the excessive sweetness. I just simply did not enjoy this brew.

From the bottle:
"Life is uncertain. Don't sip"

Pours a copper red color with some orange highlights. One finger head that disappeared within seconds.

Aroma of ripe cantaloupes and red licorice. Also some roasted malts.

A bit perfumey in the flavor. Some sweetness. The overripe cantaloupe flavor is turning my off a bit. Also some kind of berry flavor on the finish. Not much bitterness here to balance out the intense sweetness.

Pretty heavy mouth feel and somewhat chewy.

This one doesn't have verygood drinkability in my opinion.
There's just something a bit off with this one that i can't completely put my finger on.
The last 1/4 of the glass was really hard for me to swallow. Almost my first drain pour.

Poured into a snifter on 7/15/12

Sunburnt copper; deep in color. One and a half finger head dissipates to a soapy layer over half the beer and a thinner skim over the other half. There are a few drippings of lace.

The aroma is deeply malty and smells primarily like spiced bread. The aroma calls to mind some of those used in the the winter time ales. Hops are timid - earthy and herbal. The flavor is spicy too; maybe not as much as the aroma. It tastes tinny, which makes for a bad combination with the herbal hops. Dry bread. Maybe a hint of piney hop resin. The feel is somewhere between thin and medium and is a tad watery despite some granular undercurrents. Carbonation is sufficiently puffy.

Overall, this one is drinkable, but it doesn't cut it for me. While not entirely bad, too much about the beer screams "hollow." It's been a long time since I've had one. I reckon it'll be a long time before I have another.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

appearance: copper colored. fairly small head, quickly recedes to a nice lace

smell: sweet with fairly strong hops scent.

taste: very sweet, then bitter and hoppy. not as balanced between sweet and bitter as i would have liked. very slight caramel malt after-taste.

mouthfeel: light carbonation. slight alcohol feeling

drinkability: pretty drinkable. not as balanced as i was hoping for after reading other reviews. I probably won't buy it again but if i did i could have quite a few in one sitting.

I poured this skunky smelling flat beer into my tumbler at 50 degrees. The beer was copper colored with a tan head that went away really fast. The tast was sour hoppy and reminded me of hay. The lacing was pretty decent but that is all I have to say good about this beer. I will not buy again.
