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

Bottle. Solid caramelly malty base with nutty notes and some floral-honeyish elements. Might have been a bit oxidised but that rendered it the more pleasant.

Cimbasso (234) - - NOV 20, 2014
Purchased in a 50cl can from a supermarket in Nice. Light copper colour with a whitish head. Taste of sweetish malts with plenty of caramel flavours. Almost a milky taste. Although it is made withusing chestnut flour, there are only small hints of nut flavours Toffee flavours predominate. Some very slight bitterness. Not as bad as some of the French product, but lacks real character. Has some drinkability, but not great.

33cl, 6%. An amber, medium carbonated beer. It is slightly cloudy in appearance with a small white head. Some fruit and mild chestnut notes in the taste with a slight bitter finish. Fruity, malty, tasty. I enjoyed it

Kita (1189) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear pale amber color with medium soapy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma is malty, nutty, buttery with hints of chestnut. Taste starts with moderate sweet biscuit malts and toffee notes, follows bready, mild fruity and spicy, while finish is mild bitter. Light to medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Unique brew, although a bit too thin...

Aromat dość słodowy, lekka nuta białych owoców, chmielu i kasztanów. W smaku jednak bardzo przyjemnie, aksamitnie, słodowo, owocowo (troszkę jasnych winogron, jabłek, liczi, rodzynek), przypomina to gazowane białe wino półwytrawne, lekko skontrowane delikatną goryczką owocową. Nagazowanie średnie, do niskiego.

eduardovl (940) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a chalice. A: Pours a nice orange golden color with a medium white head. Small retention and not much lacings left S: Caramel malts, a bit of chestnut and flowery hops T: A slightly sweet upfront. Basically caramel malts and "milky" chestnut. Quite light and watery followed by a modest bitter end M: Light body. Low carbonation. Mild bitter end O: ... well, considering that’s a French Beer, we can say that It’s not that bad...

aleigator (278) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2014
Thx to Wera! Chestnut brown color with a decent, soon collapsing head, leaving a thin lacing. Has aromas of earthy malts, along with a modest hazelnut infusion, wrapped up by an oaken malt note. Begins with sweeter, toffeish malts, containing pleasant earthy qualities. Walnut is well integrated into the strong, sugary malt foundation, adding a decent complexity to the otherwise too sweet beer. The brew gets balanced by wooden notes, from which slightly bitter hop notes stand out, providing a slick, but short finish. Aftertaste is a little uninspired, somehow watery with minor hints of hops, overpowered by sweet, sugary malts.
