3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours attractive, with a head that holds up well, but not much carbonation. Aroma is overwhelming chestnuts which is a bit disconcerting, very sweet, and then some yeastiness. Taste - smooth and rich. Lovely bitter finish. But something missing in the middle - not enough fizz? Overall, pretty easy drinking - no complaints about that though. Not sure if the chestnuts are a good addition.
