4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pale gold with tight white head. Slighty floral aroma with refreshingly clean, crisp mouth feel with a slight nutty mid palate. Can see this working really well with seafood on a hot day but wouldnt cut it if your looking for an extreme beer & chestnut experience

Bottle. Cloudy vibrant golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is fruity with yeasty bitterness, and the flavour is dry with hops and light yeasty bitterness. Overall a really nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is light with grassy notes. The flavour is weak bitter and slightly watery grass with some spicy nettle there too. Sounds awful doesn’t it, but it was actually quite drinkable and it has that typical Bridge Road style that seems to run through many of their beers. The palate was smooth and with a little spice to round it off nicely. A "lager" ? Really ? This beer really grew on me the more I drank. Needs to be served cool.

Great that the nut comes through on first sense. The creamy, nutty texture comes through on taste too. Definitely malty that gives a hint of peanut butter. Beautiful in mouthfeel and a low impact but refreshing end. Be nice beer early in dinner party/BBQ. 5.0%. 1.3std dr. 330ml.

Nice head. Tastes of flat pine with some sawdust. Very dry. A nice different brew.

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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is amber with a moderately fluffy white head that dissipates quickly.
Aroma is slightly sweet toffee, flavour is malt driven and there seems to be some nuttiness in the background, but if I wasn’t told it was there I am not sure if I would know about it. Either way, the chestnuts seem to add something. The finish on this is quite good, nice pleasent bitterness from the Galaxy hops, but nothing too in your face.
Overall, I am quite impressed by this, it is well crafted and unique.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 Bottle. Very light orange with a small white head. Mild aroma has earth and little citrus with a definite nutty character (although I wouldn’t have guessed chestnuts without knowing) . Fairly thin cereal malt taste with respectable pils-level bitterness. The chestnuts are barely noticeable in the taste and don’t seem to do anything to the rather thin mouthfeel. An OK pils with a minor twist. [6 2 5 2 12 2.7]
Bottle, as part of the Bridge Rd Advent Calendar. Clearly fresher than previously. Very pale hazy gold with a white head that fades but doesn’t disappear. Delicate aroma of hay and spices, a little earthy nuttiness. Light bodied and clean with less chestnut presence than suggested by the aroma. Dry, fairly bitter and spicy at the end.

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.
