2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Poured an amber color beer with a medium size foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Taste of light caramel malt with light sweetness. Taste is somewhat bland with some light caramel malt with some light sweet note also noticeable. Body is about average with some good carbonation. Chestnuts are impossible to detect and again not sure what they would have provided.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lovely light amber color with good lacing. Flavor and aroma are pretty uninspiring. Tight aroma of non-descript malts. Don’t get much chestnut out of this; maybe a little bit in the flavor. Pretty standard, mediocre beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 mL bottle in trade from RCL, I think... thanks! Served in shaker- after a week from the 7th layer of hell and being in a place with laughable beer selections (they’re coming, trust me), I thought I would unpack this one, put it on ice and see what happens. Poured transparent tan copper very low carbonation (the cork was tight, must be how it is), no head. Aroma of wheat, nuts, and ginger (?). Hits the mouth with a thin body, malt is there but alot of water in the way, a very slight note of sweetness in the middle, finish has a very slight hope note. More like a lager, definately not a vienna. Interesting that it’s made in Corsica, but that’s about all in it’s appeal.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Intriguing brownish orange-gold with a quickly dissipating head. Mild, grainy, nutty, slightly toasty aroma. Those aspects are repeated verbatim in the flavor--with the addition of a touch of malt sweetness. No hops character. Very thin, watery mouthfeel. Little of interest here, aside from the fact that it’s brewed on Corsica.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bu au Festival Bièr et Saveur 08 (31/8), en bouteille au kiosk Univin. Blonde miel, pas de collet. Arome de meil malté, une peu de grains d’orge. Goût d’orge malté sec, un peu d’amerturme avec une petit touche d’agrume. Après les deux dernières, je m’attandais à pas grand chose mais c’est bien!

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled sample. Pale orange in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas of sulfur, stale pale malts, nuts, and (unfortunately) a bit of vomit. Flavors are only slightly better with notes of pale malt, mild spice, and a bit of caramel. Qutie watery on the palate. A very poor vienna.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear amber beer with a fair sized slightly off white head. Sweet smell with hints of caramel and nuts. Similar flavour with a bit of a Bitter bready finish. Not bad.
