JaKeAFC (501) - - APR 15, 2012
33cl bottle, about 1.50€, 6%.
Aspect: Amber, clear, with a nice fine offwhite head reducing to small lace.
Nose: quiet, nothing on spot.
Aroma: unclear malts, really bland dusty chestnuts, minerals, an iron note.
Taste: flat, no particular sweet\bitter combination.
Palate: watery, light bodied, soft carbonation, dusty finish.
Strange, unclean, somewhat muddy. Not nice but not terrible.

Ascelja (8) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 27, 2014 does not count
Bottle 0,75l. Aroma: Malty with hints of nuts and butter. Appearance: Bright amber body, low white fizzy head.
Flavour: Bitter to bitter-sweet, slightly tart, mostly hops, soft fruit. Finish was dry and bitter, long on tongue. Overall: Searching chesnut in flavour was vain effort. Sweeter than typical lager. Not bad at all.

Sweet and hoppy with the nuts coming through. Let down a bit by being too gassy.

Joakgust (847) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber copper beer with a large white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, grain, roasted chestnuts and nuts. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, spices, roasted chestnuts and earthy hops. Surprised this was drinkable.

pkbites (674) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle in some bar in Paris, France. Dark yellow pour is very nice, w/ thick white head that last the duraton with some lacing on the glass. But WTF is chestnut flour? Lightly hopped, moderately carbonated. Not great, but a decent enough thirst killer!

Surprisingly nice beer. Body is a bit too flat, but the chestnuts make up for that. The fruits are nice as well.
