This beer is very smooth compared to other nut ales there is no bitterness to it. It doesn’t smell like pecans but you do get a taste of it on the back end. Very good!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is malty. Herbaceous almost like a Christmas ale. Cinnamon. Basil. Rosemary.
Looks fine. Tan head. Medium dark brown.
Taste is solid. Malty. Those herbs come through. As does a little nuttiness. Almond. A little like... Acid throw up note? But not in a bad way.
Palate is smooth and light.
One of two brown ales to date that I actually like. Don’t think brown ales should even exist but this is a glimmer of hope. Malt is the driving force but there are enough subtle notes to keep it interesting. Should be good for noobs or experts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Old review from 2009. Appears a clear reddish brown with a light tan head that falls to a skim/ring. Mild lacing.
The aroma is subdued but pleasant. Malty, nutty and fruity.
The taste is nutty, fruity, malty. Fairly rich. Quite sweet in the middle then nice mild hop aftertaste.
Light/medium in body. A little slick. Active carbonation.
This was a tasty brown ale. Easily drinkable and pleasant.

The pecan flavor was something I had never experienced in a beer before. Would be absolutely astounding with a good burger.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: dark, clear ruby-chestnut, with a quickly dissipating light tan head; no lacing, but some surprisingly syrupy legs for such a low abv beer. Aroma: strong scents of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted pecans, vanilla, and a hint of root beer. Taste: nutty and sweet, with lots of pecan, toffee, and brown sugar; undertones of wood, earth, leather, cola and chocolate. Finish: lingering sweet nuttiness, with a hint of earthy hops. Notes: Delicious nut-brown ale. Pecan notes are prominent. Palate is rich for a sub-5% abv, and the beer drinks bigger than it is.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear copper with low white head. Aroma of pecan, caramel and toffee. Taste is sweet, heavy with pecan and toffee again. Body is a bit too light, otherwise I’d have labeled this a pecan pie.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color is a clear chestnut with a small off-white head, and the aroma blends toasty and caramel malts with pecans. The taste is slightly sweet, slightly sour, and a touch umami, and the palate has a medium-light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and a fairly abrupt finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. bottle poured into sensory glass.
Clear reddish brown in appearance, medium white head that dissipates quickly.
In the nose, roasted malt, brown sugar, syrup, and nuts.
Thin bodied with a sweet, nutty pecan flavor up front, pronounced roasted malt throughout, and slight bitterness on the finish.
Overall, an easy drinking nut brown ale that is pretty average, nothing really outstanding, but a solid beer that is worth a try.
