Pours clear light brown and looks beautiful. Thin, evanescent head. Not much going on in terms of smell; just bland nutty notes. The mouthfeel is light, almost watery, with a fair amount of carbonation. Tastes nutty, with some floral and fruity notes and some acidity. Not really bad, but not to be missed. A good refreshing brew to be enjoyed well chilled. Sessionable.

3.15/5  rDev -1.6%

From 06/05/13 notes in Nice, France, at a local restaurant. 330ml bottle poured in a chalice.

a - Pours a brown-orange color with one finger of fluffy off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of sweet fruity malts, caramel malts, toasted malts, and light herbal notes. Not strong in any of them; pretty forgetable.

t - Tastes of light caramel malts, sweet fruit, earthy notes.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty average beer. Not strong in any of the flavors, and not a ton going on, though not offensive or bad at all. Easy to drink, but better beers to find in France.

Pietra Biera Corsa
25.4 fl. oz. bottle, corked and caged, no apparent freshness dating.

Brasserie Pietra is a French brewery on the isle of Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea. Corsica is known for its production of chestnuts, and the beer is brewed with chestnut flour. Not surprisingly, the clear amber-colored beer actually tastes of chestnuts. It's balanced, fluctuating between a sweet maltiness and a drying bitterness that may be in part due to the chestnuts themselves. The body is medium with a dextrinous edge and a median carbonation. At 6.0 % alcohol by volume it's strong, but not overly so, and the alcohol is well-cloaked. Probably best served well-chilled to begin with, it's a unique and interesting beer that's well worth trying.

First had: on tap at Alla Spina, Philly, PA

My first (I think) Corsican beer! This was actually not bad at all for a lager, and glancing over many negative reviews, I'm guessing this beer was much more pleasant on tap than in a bottle that was sitting on the shelf for God knows how long.

Clearish mahogany pour into a teku glass, a 1/4" cap of sea foam on top that sank to a ringlet leaving dots of lacing behind. Caramel malts on the nose, wood and nutshells. Had a nutty taste somewhat reminiscent of a nut brown ale, but nothing really distinctively "chestnut" about it, caramel malt sweetness, mild leafy hops, and a bit of earth and cardboard. There was nothing amazing going on here, but I still quite enjoyed this one, and these days, for me to enjoy a lager is saying a lot. Light-medium body, smooth, clean, basic, easily drinkable. Not bad.
