2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber to orange in color with a modest taupe head. Somewhat typical amber aromas with light caramel, nuts and brown sugar. Malt and nut flavors dominate. Smooth and fairly well balanced. Reminds me of a light pecan roll. Simple straightforward amber ale.

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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.
