COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Northern English Brown was brewed with pecans directly added to the mash. That is what gives this ale its distinctive nutty flavor. Four different malts blended with Willamette hops and an English ale yeast create a well-balanced and enjoyable Brown Ale.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation very hazy light brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering malty aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of nutty roasted malt brown malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

February 13, 2013 - on tap at Royale. Brown pour with some head and lacing. Malty and nutty aroma with a touch of hops. Taste was spot on with aroma, nice beer just not very interesting after the others I just had.

Pour is a brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is kinda nutty if you use your imagination. Flavor is about the same. Brown ale malt with a very slight nutty flavor. This was kinda meh. I was hoping for more of a pecan but its more of a blacn brown ale.

Sample from beer fest. Going off notes. Poured a hazy brown color with a smaller tan head. Aroma was caramel, malts, and pecan. Flavor was dominated by nuts and pecans. Coffee caramel notes also in there. Good beer, but just something not there with this one.
