COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Revolution Series #1: We are affectionately referring to the first beer in our Revolution series of modern, American craft beer, as our unusual little bird. It’s a little on the flighty side @ 6.5% ABV, and it’s a little on the wacky side because we’ll brew it with finely milled chestnuts (genus castanea …for you nut freaks), Willamette hops, and we’ll ferment it with a Bavarian Weissbier yeast strain. All of these nuances contribute to its ‘nutty’ personality. ABV- 6.5%, IBU’s- 25, OG – 14.5 Plato (UCBC Goblet)

Appearance is clear deep golden to amber with a thick white foam cap. Aroma is toasty and nutty, with a spicy clove yeast note. Taste is light toasted malt but definitely leans toward the spicy phenols. Nutty flavor is there, but restrained. Mouthfeel is fairly light, with a moderate carbonation. Finishes with a light nutty malt character on the tongue.

AbbeyRoade (324) - Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bleh. Alcohol taste dominates. Other than that it isn’t a good brew either. Kind of nutty but more sweet/tart. Just "bleh" literally all around. No clear flavors.

hopscotch (9170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle... Clear dirty-orange ale with amber highlights and a small, brief, creamy, white head. The yeast-driven nose is spicy and lightly phenolic accompanied by a suggestion of chestnuts. Light to medium-bodied with nearly-expired carbonation. Tangy, nutty flavor, followed by a minerally, tangy finale. Bottle courtesy of my wife, Tinkerbell. Thanks for hauling this brew back home from St. Louis!
