3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy orange amber with a thin straw head. Sweet aroma of nuts, brown sugar, grass. Lightish body, watery texture and moderate carbonation. The taste isn’t as sweet as the aroma, but there is caramel, and the pecans come out more. There’s an almost vanilla-like quality with hints of grass and oranges on the finish. There isn’t the Rogue-like avalanche of hazelnuts, but pecans add a pleasant changeup ot the standard brown ale taste.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle courtesy of Headbanger) - Color is a deep amber with mellow carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is faint with a hint of malt showing. Taste is nutty and dry. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish comes in nutty with some sweet caramel showing up and a bit of a roasted taste. After taste is a bit more sweet with a candy like taste that somehow comes off clean. Overall its a nice Brown with good nut flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to MrBunn. Pours an expected nut brown with medium off-white head. Aroma is very nutty, sweet, hints of caramel, and malt. First half of 12oz bottle was very nice tasting very pleasant, nutty, with the right amount of sweetness. Second half was a bit difficult to finish. I think this is the perfect beer to share.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. Pours brown with a small white head. This is pretty nutty smelling brew. Musty with caramel, chocolate, and an obviously developed pecan character. The flavor is clean, not too sweet, and abundantly nutty. This is very drinkable actually. Awesome session beer at only 4.02% and plenty of flavor to enjoy. I liked it.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours to a carbonated dark mahogany body with a coating creamy khaki head. The aroma is slightly soapy hops, pecans, and brown malts. The flavor is actually quite good. Deep caramelized brown malts, nuts (but not specifically a pecan), and a nice malt profile. Actually tastes really good. The palate is creamy and medium bodied. Very nicely textured. Minus the aroma, this one’s a winner.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
20090521 12oz bottle from Fresh Market, Huntsville, AL. Attractive coppery brown color, medium sized beige head lasts. Aroma is pretty standard brown ale, definitely some nuts in there but I couldn’t pick out pecans. Flavor is much more nutty then the aroma would indicate, also some light mocha and a nice driness to finish. A pleasant surprise, so glad it’s not diacetyl which was my fear going in.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle 5/21/09 (Courtesy of garmonbozia)-Pours a reddish brown with a small tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Nuts, caramel, and roasted malt come out in the nose. Flavor of malt, sweetness, caramel, and some faint pecans. This light bodied brew is not bad but I was expecting the pecans to be much more pronounced but still a nice tasting brew.

12oz bottle via trade. Pours copper with a small tan head, that turns into a ring of lacing rather quick. Aroma is of nuts, brown sugar, malt, and caramel. Taste of is burnt pecans, malt, brown sugar, and caramel. Has the most faint of hops in the flavor. Lingering nutty malt flavor. Mouthfeel is light, almost watery. Eh, nothing spectacular.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This does not have the burnt flavor of alot of brown ales. It is very smooth and drinkable. It is slightly sweet, but not very noticable. Drinks best in a sniffer glass. Does have an acidic carbonated tinge.
