Ein weisser Schaum krönt das eher dunkelgoldgelbe klare Bier. Ein Kastaniengeruch steigt zwar nicht in die Nase, trotzem erahnt man eine gewisse herbe. Der erste Schluck verspricht leider nicht den Erwartungen, einen spührbaren Kastaniengeschmack im Munde zu schmecken. Der Abgang ist jedoch schmackhaft und kommt kurz prickelnd in Fahrt. Ein leicht bitterer Geschmack kommt sogleich auf, bis er sofort wieder verfliegt. Wenn es nicht angeschrieben wäre, würde mann die Kastanien nicht heraus schmecken. Aber als Durstlöscher ist es allemal zu gebrauchen!

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.

Love that nutty, smokey undertone this beer has.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2010 33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a short lived head. Aroma is grassy hops, light malt note. Sweet nutty flavoured, caramelish malt and distinct bitterness. Goes into a dry and lasting bitter finish with a hint of chestnuts.

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.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear golden color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is light hoppy bitter with a fruity touch. This beer smells malty.

This is no fruit beer, it’s more like a lager with an aromatic touch of chestnuts. Quite nice actually.

Dogbrick (11607) - 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.

Clean, balanced lager, though I didn’t notice any chestnuts. Still refreshing after a hike
