Tasted 11/6/07. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a light caramel hue. Ass-Bad nose! I mean this smells terrible! Tart notes and nutty. Terrible! Thank God I split this bottle 6 ways!

In all reality, the aroma is of standard amber ale with only the slightest nuttiness. Pours amber, head disappears. Flavor is caramel malts with some sweetness and some nutty and toasty notes. There isnt alot going on here. This bores me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
06-Nov-07 (12 oz bottle: BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Itís an understatement to say I am not a fan of pecans, so this beer has the potential to really turn me off. Fortunately, this beer has only a mildly nutty character in the finish, but doesnít really taste like pecans per se. Unfortunately, the base is a generic amber ale delivering core flavors of toasty malts and very mild hops, the latter contributing a very slight bitterness. Thereís no evolution in the flavor -- itís consistent from attack to finish. Dry, toasty nuttiness is more evident in the nose, dominating whatever other aromas might be present. Medium in body and carbonation, and it shows a dry and lightly astringent finish that hints at pecans. Deep amber in color with a faint haze, and capped by a small, light-tan head that quickly recedes to an incomplete, filmy layer. So aside from the mild nuttiness, this is a pretty uninteresting beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Deep golden colour with a thick off-white head. Fairly nice nutty aroma, soft munich maltiness and a soft sweet breadiness. There is the faintest hint of spicy european hops in the background. Excellent balance with a very fresh malty character. A slightly nutty finish, but nothing that screams "pecan" to me. Still, a fresh, balanced, and very well-made Oktoberfest type beer. Much better than I was expecting.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
The bouquet is roasted barley malt and steak well done, nicely combined. Hazy orange color, thin head, no lacing. Dry taste of lightly roasted malts. Somewhat biting mouthfeel that yields to a smooth unmistakable pecan finish. There are also fairly nice yet subdued hops in the background. The taste is only fair, but it is otherwise well done and unique. I wouldnít drink it all the time, so it makes for a nice seasonal.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from darkelf - thanks man! Pours dark amber with a slight haze and a moderate beige head. Aroma of rich, slightly caramel malts, toasted nuts and light floral notes. Flavor also features a nice maltiness, with the pecans adding a toasty, nutty character - no surprise. Medium body and tingly carbonation. Not bad.

Sampled at the Newtown brewfest with the Mad_Indian. Pours amber with a small quickly disappating white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, and hops. The flavor is sweet, nuts, caramel, toffee, and finishes dry.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Mild, slightly stale aroma of caramel malt, light hops and yup, some pecans. Flavourís the same: Starts slightly sweet with caramel malt followed by light nuts & hops and finishes with a dry, mild bitter finish. Average bodied. Itís alright, I can drink it no problem, itís just not something Iíd be likely to get again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12oz). Slightly hazy reddish-amber, average frothy head. Cereal, very light dry, almost stale hops, and something bitter-sweet, maybe pecan shells? I like the taste a little more, lightly sweet, like nutty maple syrup, very light floral hops, dry and delicate. Watery, lightly carbonated, slightly bitter aftertaste after an up-front mild sweetness. Didnít hate it.
