2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Got a 12oz bottle at Fresh Thyme market in Cincinnati. Pours clear brown with a fairly thin, soapy head. Aromas are light, but sweet and malty. Body seems a bit on the thin side, with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is soda-like, sweet...a bit weak, to be honest. There are some nutty notes, which you would expect from a brown ale. I suppose I get a little of the pecan flavor—mostly in the finish—but I would have expected the pecan flavor to be a lot more interesting for the way it’s being hyped here. Mostly it just seems like an average brown ale; it’s a bit uninspired. I love pecans, so I was hoping for more from this beer.

On tap. Pours clear light brown with no head. Aromas of malt. Nut certainly comes through on the flavor, with smooth sweet malt.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber pour with virtually no carbonation. Velvety smooth flavor & body with high drinkability. Its hard to put my finger on an exact flavor profile or say that this tastes like pecan although there is some nut in the flavor. The the main impression I get is smooth. Very nice.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Brownish pour, smallish head, malty nose, malty mouth, watery and really uninspired. First beer from LM or from MS for that matter... but the leadoff batter strikes out looking on three pitches.
