JaKeAFC (517) - - 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.

750ml bottle. BBE end 2015. Thanks Varsell !

Clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma of bread and malt. Flavour is lightly bitter, medium sweetness and malty, little bit rusty metal too. Drinkable but too big bottle for this beer, still better than I thought.

Maxbier (200) - Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Corsican beer with a hint of hazelnut flour. Cooper golden with fine white head. Typical light malt lager aroma. Taste is a little bit bitter a little bot Vienna malt. Finish I she same. Refreshing beer, no offensive flavors, true to the beer style, jut a style that's not typically exciting.

Can. Had no idea that there were chestnuts in this when drinking. Sweet malt, no bitterness. Unbalanced.

Een goud-amber kleurig bier, mooie schuimkraag. Maar qua smaak valt hij tegen. Weinig wat indruk maakt, ruikt beter dan dat hij smaakt, ook de nasmaak blijft niet lang hangen. En van kastanjes heb ik niet veel geproefd. Tegenvaller.

ClaudeB04 (120) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle, colour light brown, small head. Taste is sweet malt, some nuts but maybe again this impression comes from reading there are chestnuts (chataîgne) used to make this beer.

Ascelja (15) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 27, 2014
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.
