11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a light orange with a tall effervescent head. Aroma is a tad on the skunky side. Vegetativeness with some cardboard along with grain and malt in the aroma. Aggressive carbonation and a heavier mouthfeel than I thought there would be. The malt sweetness is overshadowed by a medicinal band-aid taste. Some bitterness there but the hops just add to the disharmony. This stuff is pretty dreadful. I won’t be drinking this again.

Clear amber orange with two fingers of white head with sticky lacing. Thin metallic caramel aroma, taste is mild, caramel and metallic bits with a bit of nuttiness.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 23, 2009
500ml cans, courtesy of my Corsican friend - thanks Caro! Amber with some head. Toffee, almost fudge taste but with a decent dryness. Full, slightly creamy mouthfeel. A malty lager - perhaps that chestnut flour really does add something.

barncatmatt (2285) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2009
330 ml bottle form the LCBO. pours orange with a white head that lasts. aroma of skunky grain, wet metal, chemicals. the flavours is slightly malty with something artificial, some tin, and a bitter finish. very odd and not all that enjoyable. the bottle says best before the end of 2010 but it already seems oxidized. not something ill buy again.

garthicus (2925) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 21, 2009
Orange with a large white head. No visible carbonation. Aroma: Mild milky aroma with a bit of grain and corn, some slight hops but not prevalent. Hmm. Flavour: Malty and grassy with some bitterness, I hate to admit it but I can certainly taste the chestnuts!! (years of collecting them as a kid) however has a somewhat ’chemical’ and artificial finish. Not bad but not great either.

gilvanblight (825) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2009
Rusty red pout with a foamy thick head. Scent is hoppy and grainy, not very encouraging. Watery mouth and a dry finish. Not much in between. Slightly bitter. Alright but nothing to write about, well except for on here.

EHSRanders (2047) - Tjele, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2009
Bottle. Clear amber colour with small creamy white mostly lasting head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel. Sweet caramel flavor. Bitter finish. Oily palate.

330ml bottle from the LCBO Pours a nice coppery amber with a good sized white head and lots of lacing The aroma is sweet grassy malts and a touch medicinal The taste to me reminds me of a bland malt liquor Pass

pootzboy (1715) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2009
UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 Bottle: pours a shimmering amber-orange color with a 2 finger frothy cap that lasted and laced well. Luscious Muenchener malts in the aroma mingle with some woody-nutty tones and wisp of herbal hops...very pleasant. The flavor is just a more intense, complex version of the aroma... rich bready-sweet Munich malts complimented with nutty tones and balanced with some great German noble herbal-woody hopping...clean drying finish. This one skirts the Vienna lager genre but the color is not right, just the same it is a sturdy flavorful Munchen-style lager that can compete with any commercial Munich amber.
