2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma: highly malty, apple juice aroma, similar to French chestnut beer I’ve had; Appearance: golden straw with somewhat hazy pour and thin, white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: not quite as malty as aroma, but definitely present; Palate: medium body with long, malty finish; Overall: better than chestnut beer but definitely not my thing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a large but quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is earthy, yeast, bready, malt, fruit, bordering on being almost skunky, musty hay. Taste is kind of sweet malt, hops, but very yeasty, with earthy notes and actually quite some sourness comes through. Very fizzy carbonation, dry. Got better as it warmed up but can’t say it’s a favourite of mine, wasn’t what I was expecting.
