Bottle: Pours cloudy brown/amber with a short, thick, tan head. Caramel/apple aroma...mildly nutty. Sweet, fruity and bready. creamy malt. The chestnuts add an odd and very different feel and flavour to it.... Rather tasty.

Buongiorgio00 (581) - - JAN 8, 2014
Dopo una lunga vacanza corsa c’ho fatto l’abitudine. Acquosetta e scialba, forse si salva per il sapore maltato discreto che la da un carattere più marcato rispetto alla maggior parte delle altre birre industriali. Una volta tornato sono andato a Chi l’ha visto per cercare il sapore di castagna. Nella birra non ne ho trovata traccia.

Svesse (5876) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2013
(Bottle) Golden amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, spicy nose with notes of rye bread, treacle, chestnuts, dried fruit and orange peel. Malty spicy taste with crisp-bread, dried fruit, orange peel, chestnuts, brown sugar and a mild spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Decent vienna style lager with a gentle chestnut character. Nothing exceptional, but quite enjoyable.

ThirstyBird (1198) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2013
Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. The smell is grainy, a bit of caramel, some fruit. The taste is fruity, nutty, grainy with a bit of caramel and fruit ending dry. The body is light/medium, a bit slick with a full, finely structured carbonation. This one surprised me...a pretty decent beer in a .5 litre can.
