Suttree (6145) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Yknow, Ive said this before - people see 2400+ ratings and think my life is glamor and women and all night partiying. What they dont see is the grunt work, the grind it out reviews like this one. Amber, slightly skinky, slightly corny. I dont get any chestnuts. Flavor is, again, like a skunk in cornfield.

Body is medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. [20081018]

Boutip (6026) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2008
Bottle: Poured an amber color beer with a medium size foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Taste of light caramel malt with light sweetness. Taste is somewhat bland with some light caramel malt with some light sweet note also noticeable. Body is about average with some good carbonation. Chestnuts are impossible to detect and again not sure what they would have provided.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Lovely light amber color with good lacing. Flavor and aroma are pretty uninspiring. Tight aroma of non-descript malts. Don’t get much chestnut out of this; maybe a little bit in the flavor. Pretty standard, mediocre beer.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Picked up at Maruhn Getrnke in Darmstadt. Pours a orange/amber color. Aromas of malts/caramel, sweet smelling. Sweet flavors of caramel with some hops/fruit.

mmmbeer (1393) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2008
750 mL bottle in trade from RCL, I think... thanks! Served in shaker- after a week from the 7th layer of hell and being in a place with laughable beer selections (they’re coming, trust me), I thought I would unpack this one, put it on ice and see what happens. Poured transparent tan copper very low carbonation (the cork was tight, must be how it is), no head. Aroma of wheat, nuts, and ginger (?). Hits the mouth with a thin body, malt is there but alot of water in the way, a very slight note of sweetness in the middle, finish has a very slight hope note. More like a lager, definately not a vienna. Interesting that it’s made in Corsica, but that’s about all in it’s appeal.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Intriguing brownish orange-gold with a quickly dissipating head. Mild, grainy, nutty, slightly toasty aroma. Those aspects are repeated verbatim in the flavor--with the addition of a touch of malt sweetness. No hops character. Very thin, watery mouthfeel. Little of interest here, aside from the fact that it’s brewed on Corsica.
