Bottle from beer shop in Paris. Pretty bland and where are the chestnuts? Another boring beer.

Sweet malty aroma, with some nut influence. An initial lager flavour is finished with quite a sharp finish.

cervmagpt (595) - PORTUGAL - MAY 24, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 2B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: medium-low malty grainy aroma. clean lager profile. APPEARANCE: light amber color and translucent. medium-low light ivory, moussy head, with good retention. TASTE: moderate malty flavor with slight toasty bready notes. medium bitterness with a dry finish and slightly bitter. clean lager profile. PALATE: medium-low body and slightly creamy. moderate carbonation. OVERALL: an interesting amber lager made with chestnut flour.

fenouil (18) - courbevoie, FRANCE - APR 30, 2016
Très originale de par sa provenance (Corse) et sa conception à base de farine de châtaigne. Manque vraiment de puissance et de concentration . La châtaigne est peu présente en bouche. Une bière de soif.

Turtles (1561) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2016
Bottled @ Ma Champagne. Clear amber, frothy white head, good lacing. Faint caramel aroma. Mid-sweet, soft mouthfeel. Grainy taste with sweet caramel, dough and syrup.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

kto (717) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 26, 2016
0.33l bottle from a small shop in thann.
pours a clear deep amber with a small white head and some lacing. aroma of sweet malts, hay. flavour of caramel, grains, grass, slight unusual nutty twang which is probably due to chestnuts. sweetish, with strong carbonation, some alcohol warmth, and a hint of bitterness towards the finish.

Amber with a Dos Equis aroma. A malty lager that would no doubt be chuggable at spring break in Cancun ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrNosha (1398) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2016
0,33l Flasche. Hellbraunes Bier, luftiger Schaum. Es riecht nussig und nach Röstmalz. Die Kastanien schmecke ich kaum. Enttäuschend.
