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.

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.

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.

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.
