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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A bit pedestrian. No doubt has decent pilsner structure with a grassy hop element however there is a piney trait which points to mild infection. Unfortunately this pops up with some regularity in BR’s lighter beers. The chestnut character is hard to pick although to be fair there’s a mild nutty note. Don’t go out of your way.

I’ve had this a few times and it fails to impress. Looks great with a big pure white fizzy head but the flavours seem to be a fairly dull lager interpretation. Like Davros I get some lemon on the nose and palate but really not much else. Thickens up a touch on the finish with some bitterness as well. Not good value at all.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pale yellow with a small head.
Nose shows grassy, lemony hops and definite chestnut, along with some metallic malt. The grassy character is a bit strong.
Similar flavours, lots more lemon and nutty notes. Grainy malt still remains unfortunately.
Carbonation is moderately high, goes well with the light flavours.

Golden pour with a good-sized head, pity it didn’t last.
Quite a grassy aroma, with some sweet toasty malt and interesting nutty characteristics. Chestnut aroma can definitely be found if you know what to look for.
Flavours are not as interesting, chestnut characteristics are hardly noticeable. Very crisp and dry (very pale-lagerish). Some lemony hops and satisfactory but boring malt.
Carbonation is too sharp and prickly.
