Like Yogi_Beera wrote: I expected this to being crap but it is actually quite ok. Golden color, small white head. Lemony aroma. Well-hopped - but grassy - flavor and medium-bodied.

Mhhh - didnt expect it to be drinkable. Honey brown colored, small fast diminishing head,akazia honey nose also medium sweet . Light hops and flower taste, slightly malty, spruce and wood come through in small puffs.

Surprise! - this is a good beer. Starts with an average sweet lager-ish nose and honey aromas, deep gold color, and a fluffy head. Sweetish malt at first then reveal hints of oak and whiskey before imparting a hint of smoke or peat. Broad dryness at the finish. Medium body and a good balance. Whod of thunk...?

I poured this into the glass and enjoyed the view of a good coppery colour and creamy head. There is a distinct malty nose to this which is supported by the body and mouthfeel. It lacks some hop balance but given the style I accept the integrity of this beer. Overall it is a good beer but best in cooler temperatures, not at the 27C odd day that I had this.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2004 Dark yellow/red colour, good head, bitter and malety, but a good thirst-quencher, nice for hot days I guess. I couldn't taste the chesnuts.

Malty, slightly nutty nose. Very slight sweetness, malty, some nuttiness, but Ive experienced a clearer nut flavour in beers without chestnuts used in the brewing process. I didnt like it very much.
