HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle (330ml). Deep burnished brass, clear, with a large fluffy off-white head (3+). Pungent grassy aroma with honey. Taste - even grassier - not skunked, just pungent and a little roasty, increasingly sweet on the tongue, a bit astringent, the big downside is after a fairly "ehhh" journey it leaves a somewhat harsh aftertaste.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2009
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a light orange with a tall effervescent head. Aroma is a tad on the skunky side. Vegetativeness with some cardboard along with grain and malt in the aroma. Aggressive carbonation and a heavier mouthfeel than I thought there would be. The malt sweetness is overshadowed by a medicinal band-aid taste. Some bitterness there but the hops just add to the disharmony. This stuff is pretty dreadful. I won’t be drinking this again.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 23, 2009
500ml cans, courtesy of my Corsican friend - thanks Caro! Amber with some head. Toffee, almost fudge taste but with a decent dryness. Full, slightly creamy mouthfeel. A malty lager - perhaps that chestnut flour really does add something.

matt7215 (2278) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2009
330 ml bottle form the LCBO. pours orange with a white head that lasts. aroma of skunky grain, wet metal, chemicals. the flavours is slightly malty with something artificial, some tin, and a bitter finish. very odd and not all that enjoyable. the bottle says best before the end of 2010 but it already seems oxidized. not something ill buy again.

garthicus (2908) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 21, 2009
Orange with a large white head. No visible carbonation. Aroma: Mild milky aroma with a bit of grain and corn, some slight hops but not prevalent. Hmm. Flavour: Malty and grassy with some bitterness, I hate to admit it but I can certainly taste the chestnuts!! (years of collecting them as a kid) however has a somewhat ’chemical’ and artificial finish. Not bad but not great either.

gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2009
Rusty red pout with a foamy thick head. Scent is hoppy and grainy, not very encouraging. Watery mouth and a dry finish. Not much in between. Slightly bitter. Alright but nothing to write about, well except for on here.
