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.

Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear roast red,smallfirm head. Sweet with clean, hard mouthfeel. Evident nutty/woody flavour that I assume is derived from the pecans, Low bitterness. A bit one-dimensional, and the malt profile is well simplistic.

I enjoyed this beer. Pour from bottle at the Manchester Pub in NYC. Nice amber color with a beige head. Roasted malt aroma. Flavor was modestly sweet, malty, with hints of pecan and caramel. Smooth and slightly creamy. Clean finish and pleasant aftertaste.

brokensail (13234) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 4, 2010
A: The pour is a nice amber/copper color with a thin layer of slightly off-white foam. S: I found the nose to be fairly enjoyable. A lot of toasted biscuit aromas and a nice nuttiness (presumably pecans) which I was not expecting to be so powerful. Thereís a touch of butter/diacetyl as well, however. T: After a fairly robust nose, the flavors were really a let down. This is very watery and quite mild in terms of flavor. The only thing I pick up is a slight toasted malt flavor. M: The beer is thin on the tongue with moderate carbonation. D: I canít say I was let down, because Iíve never been impressed by Abita, but this started out with some promise and then crashed and burned.

bhensonb (12452) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Strongly nutty aroma over caramel malt. Coppery amber color with a white/beige head. Near medium body with mild creamy carbonation. Body thins a lot as the carbonation leaves. Flavor is caramel sweetness with something like nut skin bitter. The finish is a bit watery with nut skin bitterness. Washes prosciutto down nicely. Might be a little rough without the meat.
