COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It may sound nuts, but most ales with nutty flavors or aromas are made without any real nuts. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale is made with real Louisiana pecans. The natural oils from the nuts give the ale a light pecan finish and aroma. Itís wonderful paired up with both red meats and seafood - and no suprise itís great with nuts too. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale, crack one open for yourself today.

Copper appearance with decent white head. Tastes similar to Abita Amber with slight pecan flavor. Pecan flavoring is not strong, more of an underlying taste to the recent of the beer. Otherwise, an above average amber, not bad but nothing incredible. It is pretty drinkable, like most other Abita beers Iíve tried.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Bright amber orange color. Large rocky beige head. Rich toasted malt nose with subtle pecan and caramel notes. Soft caramel malt flavor. More toasted nut flavor, though quite subtle. Mid taste is tangy and slightly bready. Buttery malt finish with some grassy hops.

ZacM612 (159) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Clear amber with a medium off-white head, no lacing. A little nuttiness to the aroma. The flavor is sweet with only a slight hint of pecan. a little thin and light.

Light. Flavorful, but mild with a progressive robust nutty aftertaste. Lower calories is a plus.

DANEgerous (92) - Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Aroma: Deep notes of barley, yeast and hay. Appearance: a dark amber with an almond head Taste: A nice slightly dry ale as first at sharply turns in to a very sweet finish that is a lot like pecan pie. Palate: Slightly thick with fairly vibrant carbonation. Overall: While not fantastic by any traditional sense this beer may come off as a gimmick, but if it is then it is gimmick done right. The odd swing from slightly dry s sweet may put off quite a few but it holds a nice maple note all the way through and wins points for originality in my book.

Onslow (1184) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Pour form a 12oz bottle. Clear deep reddish brown with creamy tan head. Modest aroma with some caramel and nutty overtones. I was surprised at how full flavored it is - big sweet caramel maltiness starts the swallow, stays sweet till the end, an earthy nuttiness emerges about halfway through and the finish is earth and a little sour / bitter. The caramel and pecan tastes give this an almost candy like quality. Sweet, malty, nutty, I would have pegged it as a brown ale but I guess styles like "amber" and "brown" are fairly arbitrary anyhow. Commendable!
