Good color and nice nutty character. it is unique for sure but nothing to make it truly stand out from the nut brown category. However a success for Abita.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: this beer pours with a huge beige head that takes a while to pour down, the beer is a nice amber color that is really clear
Aroma: faint caramel, possibly some pecan,
Taste: very light maltiness, kind of bland, pecans are faint but noticeable on the finish, some bitterness on the finish
Palate: slight bitter aftertaste, soft carbonation, light mouthfeel
Overall: kind of a bland beer, nothing bad about it but leaves you wanting more flavor, looks really good in the glass though
