COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weve blended robust caramel and crystal malts to give the brew deep brown amber hues, for an almost warming appearance. But its the roasted chestnuts that impart a unique and bold nutty character, complemented by a light level of hops, for a clean but crisp finish.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Amazing aroma of roasted chestnuts and caramel. Unbelievable so so good best aroma ever. Taste is initially disappointing compared to the Aroma but then the caramel hits at the back. Excellent beer.

Pours dark reddish brown with a generous head. Chocolatey, nutty, and has a taste just as good as it smells. Very pleasant.

YigSvartka (304) - Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Translucent crimson/brown appearance with a mid sized head. Incredible sweet nutty caramel aroma. Wow. Utter gustatory bliss. Smooth and creamy texture coupled with a perfect amalgamation of nuts, roast, malt and caramel. Little to no hop. Magnificent easy drinking brown-like beer.

Lagerboy (2132) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2011
Deep clear copper with a foamy beige head which slowly disipates. Nose is caramel and toasty nutty malts. Lots of flavors here; caramel, some vanilla and coffee, toasted nuts, robust malt with some suttle underlying hoppiness. Softly carbed with a nice clean finish. Whistler Brewing is 2 for 2 with their session ales.

zeek (194) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2011
Pours a medium brown color with small head. Despite the lack of head aroma is plentiful and sweet with lots of caramel coming through. Taste is a nice malt with a hint of chestnut coming through along with some hard to place spices. Finishes hoppy. This is a great autumn beer.

reebtogi (6133) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
650ml bottle pours amber in color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Caramel is huge on the nose with this brew with some nutty notes as well. Taste is a bold caramel malty sweetness with some nutty undertones and a mild hop bitterness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A really nice brew that is just right for the upcoming season. Quite tasty and easy to drink.
