Poured this from the can into my glass. It is really a surprisingly typical English tasting offering from the hoppy coast of America. Very nice drinker. Not sublime but I can see moments when this will be just fine.

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!

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.

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.

Pours a finger and a half of head on a clear dark straw body.
The aroma is caramel and grains, wet hay.
The taste is caramel and malty with a mild bitterness.
The texture is thicker.
I enjoyed the malty body and flavor.
