From a bottle poured into a pint glass. Aroma slightly nutty, most of the head vanished in a minute. Light caramel color with a slightly nutty, medium sweetness to the taste. The carbonation was a little fizzy. Overall itís drinkable, solid but not spectacular.

A hazed reddish amber ale with a thick collapsing mocha head. In aroma, sweet nutty malt with grassy notes, faint cinnamon. In mouth, a sweet nutty malt with grassy hops, very restrained, OK.

Gusher. Lovely reddish pour huge head. Aroma of wood, urea malt. Tastes similarly woody. Not really all that much pecan. Not oversweet, but sweet n sorta watery. A disappointment would not get again but ok.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on-tap for a $4.50 pint at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan.
Appearance: Good looking beer. A deep brown (ahem, PECAN) colored brew with a nice little two finger, creamy head on top. I was basically expecting a glass of brown water, but this was a good looking pint. Lacing was patchy from top to bottom... not bad at all.
Smell: I can say, maybe embarrassingly so, that I donít ever remember having pecans before in any form. Yes, that means no pecan pie, or anything of the sort. I have smelled pecans before though, and this beer does have that smell. A sweet pecan, caramel aroma. Not interesting, not awful, itís alright.
Taste/feel: Quite a lot like the smell. I read some things about this beer before having it, and itís what I expected almost exactly. The pecan and caramel is there from beginning to end, and thatís it. Thereís no other dimension of flavor. Thereís not much of a bitterness. Itís not bad by any means, but itís very, VERY one-note. Carbonation is quite high, and the feel is pretty low. I donít love it, but this is actually a very solid, sessionable brew. If youíre looking for something to send your taste buds on a ride, this may not be it, but itís still a decent beer.

Aroma is of caramel. Color is amber and the flavor is of pecan. Kind of watery and lacking middle and finish. A common occurrence Iíve found with abita brews

Copper color, light-med body, light toasted malty flavor, slight pecan taste in finish, not overwelming, overall a nice fall beer if youíre looking for something other than a pumpkin or marzen.

Bottle. Dark clear copper with some reddish tints and an off white head. Smells like beer with some slight nutty hints. Taste is fruity with some toffee and roast malt. Palate is medium mouthfeel and smooth. Light carbonation. Not very interesting.
