On tap at Mahars. Really smokey tasting beer, not very good. Too sweet and tangy with a bunch of smokey fruity funk.

Poured a clear amber with small head aromas of bread and hops light and flavors are of the above one of the worst if not the viennas I have had and I love the style and the chestnuts flavor didn’t come though at all for me

Pours a clear gold with a white head. Aroma of malts and chesnuts. Flavor is of nuts and nuts with some hops at the finish. Interesting beer.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 12, 2009
750 ml bottle. Mostly clear amber with a white head. Grassy, dry hay, yeasty barnyard aroma. Smooth medium body. Flavor is dry nut meat and grainy pale malts, with dry grass and a spicy bitterness to finish. Pretty nice.

3.2
Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2009
Bottle at Sous-Bock. Clear deep amber color with thick white head. Distinct chestnut aroma underneath the fruity malts. Quaffable and refreshing body. Light beer, but has a solid flavor, some smokiness, with drying alcohol in finish. High carbonation. Unique, refreshing, well-made, but not necessarily compelling.

Appearance: Chestnut brown. Some off-white head. Aroma: Malt, smoke, some fruit. Slightly vinous. Taste: Malt, smooth. Some smoke and alcohol. Nicer than expected. Info: 330ml bottle, 10/6-2009

emotv (353) - Izmir, TURKEY - JUN 6, 2009
Actually golden colour, with a medium head. Some malty and nutty aromas. Easy going and not so amazing. normal beer.

2.7
sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2009
pours amber with thick white head. Aroma is malty with light caramel and chestnut pwder. Taste, malty / light caramel followed by some spices and light chestnuts. Found the beer to have a pilsener like after taste that just wasn’t appealing.

2.5
TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2009
330 mL bottle. Pale orange with a ring of head. Sharp aroma of green apple, dishwater and unripe chestnuts. Flavour is not terrible, but certainly not appealing. Some malt, not too nutty. Decent body.

2.6
VertBaconStrips (2389) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - MAY 30, 2009
Poured out a dark gold brew with a bit of unfiltered stuff floating around, small white cap that lives on as a ring, minor lacing. The aroma initially is quite poor resembling nothing more than a crummy lager but given time it gives up a weak, dark nutty aroma that reminds me of Frangelico, a slight burntness and a handful of malts. Overall weak. The flavour, however, is not weak as this does pack a punch. Burnt nut, very dark - maybe closer to the outer covering of the raw nut itself. the bitterness fades in and out tricking me into thinking that it is going to be bitter but it never achieves that, some random fruitiness, maybe a hint of vanilla trying to poke through. No shortage of nutty flavour here. Nicely carbonated with a good level of bitterness for this particular brew. Dried out near the end. I wonder how many I could drink in one sitting before swearing this off forever.
