2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

Very intriguing beer. At first a seemingly normal european lager, but then a hint of nuttiness and smokiness on the palate. Very smooth and well rounded a very nice beer that is not your normal lager. A good change of pace.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 330ml from Waitrose, Witney. Amber with white head. Volcanic pour, heavily malted dark lager, not bad when you get into it, some spice some fruitiness, but a finishing yeasty note ruins it a little. Alcohol on the close.
