2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 From a 330ml bottle on 1/7/2012. Pours a slightly cloudy, very light straw colour with a smallish head. Almost looks a bit like a wit. There’s not a lot in the aroma, with just a hint of nuttiness. The taste follows suit. You get the some chestnut and grassiness, along with a reasonably firm bitterness. Fairly average. Rating 2.8.
Re-rate 25/1/2014. Was perhaps a touch generous the last time.

330ml Bottle. Lovely nutty aromas. a crisp and refreshing lager, with a nice little twist. Not a big chestnut but very subtle, which works well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is malt with earthy tones and hops. Taste is also malt with just hints of nuts leading to a decent bitter finish. Pretty well balanced. Pretty decent.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours light straw in colour with a small white head on it. Sweet malts and a subtle nuttiness. Sweet biscuity malts in the taste. Again with the subtle nut tone in there. Not bad, didn’t mind it at all

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the beermentv Hair of the Dog Breakfast at Beer DeLuxe. Had me a bit bemuddled as to how much I liked this. It was a difficult ’nut to crack’... The chesnut was quite subtle, but was definitely there. Quite sweet though, and I didn’t get a lot of crispness. But a bit like a new friend - it would be fun to go back and get to know more and more.
Earlier Rating: 5/20/2010 Total Score: 2.6
Bottle. Was quite dividing on the day I tasted it. I thought it was quite pleasing, the chesnuts giving it enough distinction to stand out from the usual bunch.

Bottle 330ml. Nice and different. Aromas of vanilla, citrus, dry fruit, and also bacon. Taste is sweet, with a hint of sourness, and good length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Pale, with a thin head.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a very light straw colour with a minimal white coloured head. Faint sweet aromas with a odd nuttiness. Dont really like it. Flavour wise there is a little biscuity malt sweetness and a little resiny bitterness. Mouthfeel is very thin. Didnt really like this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale straw in colour with almost no head but good carbonation. Aroma is slightly sweet with some fruitiness and not much in the way of a nutty character. the nust comes more through on the palate, especially in the finish of the beer. A nice easy drinking pils though.
