Chestnut Hill pours a dark brown color, with a nice tan head. The aroma has just a very slight nutty sweetness to it. The taste is lacking, just hints of a roasted malt, mostly flavorless, but not bad tasting. Easy to drink, but weak flavors. Overall a pretty average brown, weak in flavors, but its certainly not a bad beer.

A - Poured a clear chestnut color with a one-finger, khaki colored head of foam. It left sudsy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled nutty with some caramel notes.

T - It tasted nutty and spicy with a nice malty finish.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is an interesting brown ale.

Served from the taproom.

Poured dark brown with a tan head.

Smelled light, malty, and nutty.

The taste was nutty, grainy (in a good way), and sweet-malts. Overall pretty clean and very drinkable.

Would I buy it again? Absolutely.

Had it mixed with their Farmgirl and the sweetness paired very nicely with it.

Also had a special brew with pumpkin, ginger, and cinnamon.
A = 3.25
S = 4
T = 4
MF = 3.25
OA = 4

The additional spices blended very well with this brew. The pumpkin was more apparent than the other spices, but very balanced.
