Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, slight chestnut, Lager yeast, grain, light caramel, and a hint of marzipan. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, malt, light caramel, slight lager yeast finish is lightly dry.

bartholos (64) - 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 (123) - 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 (1149) - 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.

Robou (3) - AIX-LES-BAINS, FRANCE - APR 28, 2015 does not count
Mousse peu persistante. C’est une lager assez classique mais on y trouve un goût un peu différent, sans pour autant reconnaître de la chataigne. Le goût est correct même si peu prononcé. C’est une bière plutôt moyenne, mais pas mauvaise pour autant.

Plutôt correcte, a boire fraiche, une lager qui tire plus vers la bière belge. Peu de gout de malt, mousse beaucoup.
