3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured light amber with a nice cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up brown sugar and sweet pecans with a bit of buttery character.. aiight. The flavor found a muddled blend of sweet malts (pecan, chocolate, vanilla, and brown sugar) with similarly-inspired tartness surrounding.. finished a tad sharp over a blend of sweet malts. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. this went down easily, but was just OK.

Iím not really getting much pecan out of this...for an amber, itís pretty solid. The aroma not much to write about; however, some light caramel flavors and slightly chew malt notes make up the taste profile. Finish is pretty clean with no flaws. No over the top by any means, but nothing to seek out either...

This smells a lot like pumpkin. The taste of the malt is very bready with a certain smooth nuttiness on the finish. The beer is not very bitter at all and is reminiscent of a 90-shilling ale or a very light porter. It is the best brew Iíve tasted from Abita.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma is a faint pecan smell mixed with hops.
The appearance is a light brown color with a thin head.
The flavor is a slight nut flavor with a malt and hop background
The palate is a light bodied beer with average carbonation
Overall, this is not a bad beer at all. it is my fifth Abita beer I have had and it is second to Andygator in my opinion.

Had this on tap in Baton Rouge. Delicious with my seafood dinner, but on its own was underwhelming. Nutty and malty but not much really to it. A little watery.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a crystal-clear reddish amber with a tan head. The aroma is bright slightly floral but with a distinct passionfruit or berry note. The taste is very much forward sweet through out with some underlying subtle bitterness coming through at the end just to give it a little bit of an offset the nuttiness comes through although subtle. very drinkable
