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.

Bottle 0,75l from Corsica. I wasn’t able to find tones of chestnuts in aroma and flavor, Pietra still is quite good amber lager, well balanced, enough bitter.

wimpyjoe (3879) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Can from Carrefour, Nice. Darker amber in colour with no head. Decent enough malt in aroma, but nothing special in its taste and it’s very bland and ordinary in this respect.

A very distinctive brew, an intriguing import from Corsica. Pours an amber brown color with some cloudiness. Aroma and taste is lagerish with sweet citrusy almost Belgian ale-like notes, also the unique chestnut sweetness, similar to but not the same as a hazelnut accented beer. Finishes clean with a light bitterness. On the off chance I'm ever in Corsica I'll be sure to try this in it's local environment.

gegwilson (1157) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from French supermarket. Pours amber with a thin white head. The taste is bitter, slightly citrusy with a touch of spice and a bit of nuttiness. Fairly refreshing and enjoyable enough.

Not too good. Smooth though. Sweet malt and bread in the aroma. Taste is sweet with a metallic tang. Some hops show up to balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber beer from Corsica. A holiday gift from a friend. Easy drinking amber beer. Decent alc at 6%. I dont get any chestnut but its refreshing enough.

c0fein (200) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2014
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 (255) - 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.
