3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
2009 Tap. Interesting to say the least. Appears dark brown with little head to speak of. You can taste the difference between this beer and one traditionally brewed with malted barley. There is a dark, dry bitterness to the finish of this beer, though not unenjoyable, make it distinct. Expect a woody, nutty (not quite pecan-esque) flavor from this brew. Not good, but I don’t see this one surviving long-term in the markets.

Bottle, pours a nice brown color. It has a nice sweet taste, with a touch of hops and pecan aftertaste. Nice balance and I was pleasantly surprised with this one being in Alabama and not wanting to drink Bud Light.

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.
