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.

An interesting concept. Bottle pours a dark amber with a medium tan head. Pecan taste throughout. Palate is nutty, oily mouthfeel. Other tastes are toasted malt and caramel, with pecan dominating the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed from notes: pours a nice brown color with off-white/ivory head. Nuts, pecans obviously, wood, and some floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a slightly sweet note, probably from the pecans.

nike (950) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2014
12oz bottle, I have to agree with others rating this beer, it is decent, not great. It does have nutty, pecan flavor, just not one I would seek out for another. It was worth the try, easy drinkable amber.

BOSSbrewer (1472) - Arkansas, USA - APR 14, 2014
Pours a clear copper/amber with a thin tan head. Aroma is slightly nutty with some caramel. Slight yeast aroma. Flavor has some nuttiness but not much else. Thin. Drinkable.

jebert (496) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2014
Pours amber with a thin head of light tan foam. Nose is malt and caramel. Average creaminess. Taste is mild and of lightly roasted malt, some caramel sweetness and a slightly nutty flavor. Lightly hopped. A decent beer but not outstanding. Pairs well with nuts or pretzels.

Pour (Happy Gnome Beer Dinner) amber with an off white head, sweet taste of malt, nuts, and caramel, light bitter finish, not bad

Quite thin like must form this brewery. Easy to drink and nothing too special about this opne. A hint of pecan too.

islay (1067) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Simple, juicy, nutty aroma features a red grape scent. Pours a clear copper/amber with light effervescence and a small amount of beige head. Nice, bright look. Nutty, dry, fruit-juicy flavor that matches the aroma. While there is a nutty quality, it is subtle, and I wouldnít have known there were any nuts in this beer, let alone that they were pecans specifically, had I not been informed so by the name. Amber ale-like taste. Long, dry, nutty aftertaste. Easy to drink. Light to medium body. Insubstantial in the palate aside from the solid aftertaste but not bad. Overall, this is a simple and unmemorable beer but certainly not an actively offensive one.

I have drank this many times....and for whatever reason now that I am rating it, I find it just doesnít hold up. Feels a bit too carbonated. Aroma...beer, I donít get much of anything from it.. Do not like it cold. Room temperature. Has a bit of a pecan up front, then more of a brown ale. It still is a very easy drinking beer. I just recall liking it a lot more. Maybe trying hundreds of other beers made me realize this was not as special as the first time I had it.

msalsbury (16) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2014
The flavor starts with a malty bitterness. This gives way to a kind of strange grain funkiness with an earthy note to it. I think maybe I get some pecan in there, but itís more like a piece of shell you accidentally ate than a pecan nut. The finish is bitter in a very mildly hoppy way. Itís OK, but just not as good as I expected it to be from the name.

No pecan, but a nice toasty flavor. This is a good seasonal, but lacks the identifiable notes needed to fulfill its marketing.
