2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled (6% ABV). A clear light amber beer with a small and fast disappearing white head. The aroma is simple, some maltiness, and light notes of caramel and chestnuts. The flavour has more pronounced chestnuts notes, though they are not really in evidence. Not bad taste but a bit too sweet. Medium body, lively carbonation, quite long finish with light bitterness. An average beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A clear golden colored ber, with a foamy white head. An aroma of malt, herbs, flowery and caramel. The taste is sugar sweet, a bitter in the back. It has a medium body. There are some spices. It has a dry aftertaste. It’s not my taste.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle @ the rake. A novel idea, but that’s pretty much it. Overly unexciting and bland even though it tasted more of chestnuts than i would ever have expected. looked good though. Nice dark amber colour with small pearly corbonation and a creamy off-white head. shame it couldn’t keep up taste-wise.

Pour is clear copper amber with a thin tan head...smell is lightly toasty and sweet caramel and day old bread crust with some strange smoky notes...taste is sweet and bright with caramel and malty notes with a subtle but tangible nutty flavor...if I didn’t know, chestnut would not be my first guess....finish is rather bright and metallic....

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Fresh caramel aroma with some nutty aspects. Copper color with no head. Thin to medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is caramel with a strong woody flavor. Guess that’s chestnut. The woodiness balances the sweetness rather well. Finish is rather dry, and the woodiness fills in for bitter. This is a strong flavor. Very different. Almost smoky.

Nice redbrown colour. Malty sweet and nutty - the chestnut probably gives it some dryness to balance
