E’ la specialità del birrificio busallese, che manca un pò di iniziativa visto che produce le stesse birre da 10 anni. Passando alla Castagnasca bevuta alla spina in fabbrica, ha un colore dorato, poca schiuma evanescente, gusto amarognolo e un pò tostato, il sapore di castagne arriva al palato insieme al luppolo. Una delle migliori chestnut mai assaggiate, se non altro quella che ne sa di più.

Bottle from the Beer8 shop in Genoa, shared with heavy
Poured a hazy copper/amber body with a small white head. The nose is malty, very bready and generally nice. The taste is sweet, malty and dryish, with a very soft mouthfeel. Bit chalky, slightly lemony too, surrounding with some dull hop. Interesting, slightly watery.

heavy (2116) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 17, 2009
11/10 0.5 l bottle from Beer8 shop, Genova. It poured slightly hazy orange to brownish body with smaller head. Nice caramel, roasted sugar and biscuit aroma with note of something that might be the chestnut. Slightly bitter to sweet as of that strange dusty malty chestnut flavor. Slightly fruity as well. Pretty watery though. Shorter, slightly toasty bittersweet finish. Fine, but definitely another beer that lacks body.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 21, 2007
Bottiglia da 50cl comprata alla Fabbrica, ma già assaggiata alla spina in loco; colore ambrato chiaro leggermente torbido, poca schiuma non molto resistente. Aroma fruttato, legna, capanna di montagna, pecore, mucche e formaggio; sapore leggero ma avvolgente, con castagna che spunta nel retrogusto insieme ad un po’ di fumo. Amaro zero, ma non importa, favolosamente piacevole lo stesso: sicuramente il miglior prodotto (tra quelli assaggiati) della Fabbrica Busalla.

Dorqui (2091) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 22, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Draught at "Salone della Birra Artigianale 2007" - Milan.
Compact and adherent head, medium resistance. Lightly hazy dark orange color. Light but pleasant aroma with fruity notes, braced malty and underbrush. Light and sweetish body on the end.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2005
Bottle, courtesy of Lorenzo @ ZBF 2005. Gold, thin off white head and gentle condition. Sweet, herbal and flowery aromas, strangely soft in the mouth with a sweet fruitiness and some gentle phenolic smokiness. Soft malty finish with hints of floweriness.

Thanks to Lorenzo. Hazy golden colour with a white head. Light sour malty aroma and a light sweet sour taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.

JorisPPattyn (7809) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2005
Hazy gold beer; white head leaving good lace. Piney nose - like sea-pine in the dunes - and bog-myrtle. Smokey flavour, pale malts, some dry sherry flavour that seems characteristic for chestnutbeers. Rather light bodied, but again, slick, like the grist suspended in the mash. That’s a nice try. It’s seems better than the Corsican Pietra, and I liked that one already. Grazie, Lorenzo
