12oz bottle courtesy of brentfeesh. Sweet caramel and nutty aroma. Deep amber body with beige head. Flavor has a sweet malt backbone but also a nutty flavor along with a carbinated cola to it. Sweetness lingers on the palate. Thanks Brent for a new state and a good trade.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Bockyhorsey - My first beer from MS, yeah. Pours a deep copper color with a 1/2 finger thick off white head. Hardly any lacing to speak of. Aroma is mostly caramel malt. Flavor is mostly caramel malt with a faint hint of nuttiness. Palate is kinda dry with a lingering caramel malt aftertaste. Medium body. Where’s the PECAN? Worth a try. Thanks Bill.

12oz from my man, Immy - thanks, Tim! Not much of the nut in the aroma, but there are some pleasant malts in the nose. Once you get into this easy drinkin’ brew you can definitely pick up the distinct flavors of pecan - not sweet like pecan pie, but just a bit sharp and chalky. It’s a nice idea, and it comes across as a solid brew.

Dark amber with a nice thick off white head.
Aroma is sweet malt, nuts, caramel.
Flavor is a bit metalic with nuts, caramel, roast and sweet malts...not too sweet...not bad at all.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample Hotshots Feb Indy tasting - Aroma is caramel, pecan, toasted malts and not much else. Pours light brown with a ring head and no lacing. Flavor is pecan, toffee and caramel malts. Palate is clean and smooth. I think this beer should’ve been served first as we already had some big hitters that overwhelmed it. That being said, it still wasn’t all that impressive, but I would be willing to give it another go if i get the chance. I do love pecans.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought a party pig for the superbowl. Great dark amber color with a tan head. Pretty good beer. Noticed strong bitter finish in the first glass...not so much in the 5th or 6th. Wished it had more of a pecan flavor instead of sweet malty flavor, but that’s just me. I’m sure I’ll purchase this again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks alot brent for sending me 2 12oz bottles of this since i cant get this near me. It pours a clear brown color with a head that fades as quick as the pour. There are some hints of apricot in the aroma with some traces of nuts. AS it sip on it theflavor is a bit water with some initial hop bitterness followed by light fruits. The palate duration is very short and the flavors do not last that long.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a brilliant clear amber colour with a whispy tan head that fades immediately. Muted nose of crystal malt, mild nuts, faint toffee and cereal grain. The flavour is mildly nutty mid-palate, but finishing with gentle malt sweetness and roasted pecan. The flavour is completely unoffensive and the roasted nut, cereal grain and sweet malt flavours blend nicely to create a quaffable session brew. The tingly, medium carbonation paired with the silky, medium body of this brewski makes it even more gulpable. Kind of boring, but nice.

I missed out on the pecan flavor to this beer, but I could definitely taste the nuttiness to it. Enjoyed trying this, but would probably pass on it next time - a great novelty brew.
