tiny bottle. Pale yellow, hoppy nose. Rather thin taste, slightly malty and hoppy. Interesting smoky flavours in the taste.

omhper (19243) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Bottled. Clear glden, rich creamy head. Roasty nutty aroma. Sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Evident nutty flavour, other than that it does not provide a lot.

Dogbrick (7687) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2007
This beer is a light golden color with a thin and fizzy white head that disappears rather fast. Minimal coating of lacing on the glass. The aroma is musty hops and some nuts. Light-bodied and a little skunky, with hoppy and nutty flavors. The finish is sweet malt with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Aside from the Heineken-ish aspects this beer is alright.

pintbypint (2567) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2006
330ml green bottle. Poured pale yellow, faint ammount of haze. Short lived white cap. Dusty, hay/grass aroma. Starts with sweetish malt flavour, some apple notes. Grassy finish with grains and a bready, lightly nutty taste. Light body, average carbonation.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2006
Bottle (Utobeer): Clear gold with a small, lasting white head. Metallic, stale aroma. Flavour is a mix of socks, stale beread and mild fruit. Maybe I had a bad bottle?

maeib (8621) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2006
Bottled. A golden coloured beer with a little pool of tan coloured bubbles. The aroma is a little rubbery and a touch smoky. The taste is very nutty and a little smoky. A nice full body. A much nicer beer than I expected.

JonMoore (1848) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour with a slim white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and smokey. The taste is smokey, malty, with a dry finish. Light bodied, a bit thin in the finish. Drinkable.

Ungstrup (29174) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2003
The aroma is sweet and malty with a nutty background. The color is yellow and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is malty with notes of straws and nuts. It ends on a rather dry note. A fine beer but nothing special - I couldn't tell the chestnuts - just hint of a nuttyness.

brewbear (48) - 3096 Oberbalm, SWITZERLAND - MAY 8, 2003
nice colour, few head and body, good arome but where are the "Kastanien", Locher makes better beers
