Whoa, what's this. Completely unexpected. A sweet caramel, bready and honey malt aroma, an insipid, vaguely citrusy hop aroma, just utterly bland. The palate is no better. Light but like sugar water, whole wheat bread dough, honey, caramel, chalky hop flavor, minimal bitterness, minimal flavor, this is a chore. Drain pour.

Poured to a tulip glass.

A: The body is coppery with some visible carbonation. The head is minimal. No lacing. No head at al..
S: The aroma has some toffee and sweetness coming in. In the back, there's a malty backbone but it's not fantastic.
T: The taste is a bit empty, has some malty touch and with a very small toffee profile. Not liking this that much.
M: The body is medium low to medium. Carbonation appears to be a bit harsh.
O: My first Pizza Port beer and I'm not that impressed.

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.
