75 cL bottle (sample). Pours reddish with huge white head. Sweet barly aroma with minor citric note. Strong oily, wineous mouthfeel. Taste is sweet malt. Alcohol stands out in feel and finish in a rather simple beer.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with some gunk floating around under a lazing light orange head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol, medium notes of caramel, and light notes of lemon. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, caramel, and alcohol. The alcohol leaves a warming sensation. I find it a bit too simple and raw.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Slightly hazy amber golden with an almost absent, off-white head. Sweetish, lightly caramelish aroma. Fairly full body with sweetish, lightly caramelish malts. Subdued bitterness. I don’t really pick up the chestnuts, but this is drinkable stuff indeed. Courtesy of Ungstrup. 220207

[Bottled] Hazy amber, rich lively head. Fruity citric nose. Bready with notes of butterscotch and nuts. Medium sweet, very malty and somewhat syrupy. Dominated by a rye bread flavour that I believe is derived from the chestnuts. Just some late bitterness. Interesting!

Ale brewed with chesnuts. Very frothy and lively, refuses to stay in the glass! Cloudy brown colour with a biscuit coloured head with brown bits (chesnuts?) in it. Surprisingly fruity. Crisp with a sharp effervescense. Nice malty chesnut mid and finish. Dry crisp finish. Unusual and tasty beer.

fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2006
Cloudy brown color, better head than the Melissa. The aroma shows some malt and a very light fruitness and hop. Medium body structure, with enough malt flavor; the chestnut flavor is subtle but clear, adding some complexity. A quite good Ale.
