Thanks to Dansting for this one. Pours a transparent brown with a small white head present. The nose is real nutty and malty. There is some pecan flavor and lots of malt sweetness. It leaves a bit of a funk aftertaste in your mouth.

355 ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby amber with a nice off-white head. Malt filled nose with a hint of nut. Medium body. Distinct malt profile with a nice roasted nutty character. Slight edge to rather quick finish. Subtle lingering malt sweetness.

6-22-08 bottle shared with lb4lb thanks to Brianj555
Color is a clear rich blood red brown with a thin little frothy head - looks very similar to blood with some lacing. Smell is nutty and malty. Flavor is nutty and strangely sweet - almost gritty. Taste is just a bit too offputting for me - that sweetness isn’t rich or enjoyable but instead seems out of place and just kinda kills it for me. Mouthfeel is quite chalky.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Dansting. Pour is brown orange with a smallish white head. Aroma of pecan nuts, maltiness and not much else. Taste is slightly malty, and a bunch of Pecan nuttiness. Palate is medium and drinkable. Nothing really bad about this beer, just a bit one dimensional (Pecan) and bland. Thanks for stopping by and sharing this one Dan.

Btl opened by brentfesh. A clean brown/red pour with slightly off white head and lace. Nutty aroma with hints of toasted malt. A pretty nice bitter finish with decent hints of nuts in the flavor. Slightly thin with decent carbonation. Pretty decent refreshing drinker.

Bottled. Poured burnt sienna with a short cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet nutty notes, caramel, and a bit of molasses.. gave a sweet and enjoyable impression. The flavor had toasted caramel, pecans, and light smoke to it.. bitterness was mild and herbal in nature.. the finish picked up a little dry semi-sweet chocolate.. tasty. Lighter-bodied with high carbonation that got in the way.. brighter and greener on the back-end.. quite enjoyable overall.

Bottle. Pours a reddish light brown with beige head and no lacing. Toasty nutty aroma. Very light nut brown ale with carbonated cola finish. A typical microbrew

Some buddies picked up a couple of bottles while on a road trip. Pours a light brownish red with a head that settles to a ring. Looks like cola. Nutty aroma with hints of sweetness. The flavor also has a little sweetness that is followed by a pleasant nutty aspect. Light, yet still somewhat flavorful. Pretty straightforward easy drinking brew.

A very tasty beer, something like Newcastle but a bit lighter. Very refreshing addition to a dinner at Guido’s in downtown Mobile.
