4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful dark amber color with a thin head (dissipates in a matter of seconds), with a smell of wheat barley (minimal to no pecan smell). Flavor reminded me a lot of Sam Adams Boston Lager with a hint of nuttiness (but barely). I wouldn't exactly call this an ale because it tasted so much like a lager. An overall good and safe beer to have. However, I was expecting more than safe, but rather an unusual hint of pecan since I haven't had pecan-brewed beer before.

Bottle. Translucent light brown body, medium dense cream head. Toasty nose, bready with fresh dough and toasted pecans; woody acidity. Body light and toasty and nutty. Biting. Refreshing with nice creamy pecan notes.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bought this in a six pack and was very excited to try it. Wasnít what I expected but wasnít bad either. Pours mahogany brown with big off white head that is comparable to Dr pepper. Aroma is weak and nutty. Tastes good but nothing special. Thin in the mouth but not watery. Pretty good just not as good as I anticipated.

Thin brown. Flat nose of some toasted malts. Get no pecan anywhere in this may be some slight nuttiness but given the name this is disappointing. Reasonable brown but hope this isnít pricey.

355 mL bottle. Chestnut brown with a very thin, almost-white head. More sharp malt in the aroma than anything; Iím pretty sure Iíd never guess that there are pecans in here. They are there in the flavour, though, although in a subtle way, which is nice. This is really a sessionable, slightly nutty, brown ale, nothing more, nothing less.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. From the easter bif. Pours a light brown with a half finger off-white head. Aroma of roasty nuts and caramel. Taste is light sweet. Roasty nuts and a good dose of dark caramel and toffee. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, great. Pretty unique brew.

Clear amber pour. Medium off white head. Toasty aroma. Nutty. Yeast. Highly carbonated. Flavor is nutty. More from yeast than pecan. Ok.

Bottle pour from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. American pint glass. Pours a beautiful dark amber with light white head and haze. Very little lacing throughout. Aroma was very malty but I did not pick up much on the pecans. The taste was much more mild than I was expecting. The nuts are there, but not very prevalent. It is malty with a slight roasted flavor and is more bread than nuts. The mouth is smooth and slightly dry finish. I liked the beer, but kind of wished it was more special like the name and description seemed to elude.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Contact Sports Bar in The Palace. Drank the shit out of this the last five days... itís pretty well available everywhere in the area. Pours a lighter brown color with a finger of tan head. Nice lacing. Hard to get a good feel for the aroma with it being served ice cold. Still, a little bit sweet and lightly toasty. Taste of toasted caramel malts, nuts, toffee, and caramel. Good. Very drinkable; I can see why itís a local favorite.
