Amber color that starts with a thin head and diminish quickly. Aroma is sweet malt, flavor besides the malty has some yeast hints. Mouthfeel is dry and sweet.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2015 Bottle at Café des Amis. Clear chestnut in the aroma, otherwise pretty standard, but not bad.

Poor malty taste with nothing special to say. Nuts? Where? In the beer? I don’t think so. Forgetteable

Xavalias (264) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle from supermarket in Corsica. Pours clear amber with a head that disappears quickly and leaves no lacing. The aroma has malt, caramel, but I can’t find the chestnuts. The taste is sweet and medium bitter, with a sweet finish. Not a bad brew, but rather boring.

juffage (136) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
33ml bottle from the Curious Hop, Otley. Yeah, ok, this is weird but pretty unique and in no way flawed. So, I like it. Looks like a lightish brown ale with an off-white egg-white style head on it. Light but nice, and smooth. You can really taste the chestnuts too. Slightly sweet, biscuts with vanilla (nilla wafers?) and closet in the aftertaste. Not sure if I’d rush out to buy it again but it’s one I enjoyed drinking, which means I enjoyed it for at least a bit more than just a novelty factor.

guzgorog (508) - FRANCE - SEP 9, 2015
Belle couleur ambrée claire, limpide, fine mousse blanche. Nez de malts, de chataignes (enfin léger), et houblons herbeux. L’attaque est relativement amère, sur les houblons herbeux, le malt un peu présent, légère pointe de caramel. Belle pétillance, corps léger. C’est pas la pire bière de supermarché qu’on puisse trouver, mais pas la mieux non plus... A boire en corse !
