Vighals (1990) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2015
Gylden brun klar med to fingre høyt kremete beige skum som ligger godt. Beskjeden i lukt, litt karamell og metall. Bittersøt smak, brent karamell, brunt sukker. Medium bitterhet overtar og sitter til em medium lang ettersmak.

mircoas (220) - ITALY - JUL 14, 2015
33cl @ bottle. Birra ambrata dalla corsica che ha lo stesso sapore delle birre industriali più conosciute. Solo l’amaro si sente. Evitabilissima.

bartholos (100) - GERMANY - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle. Dark yellow colored with a full white frothy head. Aroma is slightly herbal and floral with caramel and some nuttiness. Flavor is dominated by the malt with caramel and some bread. However, not really strong neither in aroma nor in flavor or taste. The body is light almost watery with a slightly bitter finish. The chestnut is at best hidden somewhere or not existent at all.

ChtiBreizh (151) - Rennes, FRANCE - JUN 9, 2015
33cl bottle bought in a french supermarket. Quite dark/amber lager. Malty with a special rough taste probably due to the chestnut flour. Medium sweetness, low bitterness. OK but not worth a second try.

jamaty (1250) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Ambar bastante oscura y ligeramente turbia. Escasa espuma. Aroma malteado algo dulzon. Sabor a rica malta que al final del trago evoluciona dejando notar en el fondo del paladar su elevada carbonatacion, iniciando el postgusto citrico y acatamelado. Lleva castaña en la receta. Curiosa.

France trip can. Pale golden syrup colour, little head, small white line around edge. Medium carbonation, decent aroma. Ting on back of throat and tongue - bit fizzy, no great taste.
