I find myself liking this style less and less. Ambers were the style that got me into craft beer. I did enjoy this beer while I was walking around Sea World. I'll drink again.

A 79 is hardly fair for this amber ale. As an amber, it pours a perfectly clear amber color with a foamy, persistent, and sticky just off white head. It smells of caramel covered fruitiness blended with rich damp soil and grassy hops. Taste follows: sweet and malty grain, roasty and toasty goodness, herbal hops. Feel is a little over carbonated, but still pretty smooth and slick. Balanced with sweetness barely pulling the lead. Over, this is a damn good amber and I'm surprised to see it's overall score. All well, to each their own. Cheers!

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.

Nice amber color with a good amount of haze. Nice two finger head. Slight hints of melon and lime on the nose. Nice balanced taste with hints of grapefruit and caramel. Crisp feel with a good mouth coating aftertaste.
