Caramel color. Smell of malt,pecans, minor hops and caramel. Tastes the same but light. You can defiantly taste the pecans.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I was worried this was going to taste like it had a bunch of pecan flavored syrup poured in it but it thankfully does not. It is still not exactly a great beer but at least it does not taste like some kind of awful Starbucks coffee beverage. Itís amber brown in color, maybe slightly cloudy w/ a small but long-lived head. This beer has a pretty solid malt character w/o being all kinds of sticky and sweet so thatís good but then it has just a slight metallic edge to it and, really, who wants that. Still, I didnít mind this stuff and could drink a couple if I felt like it. The only nutty character I got out of it seemed more like it was from oxidation than actual roasted nuts but I donít know the first thing about anything.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Cranberry-brown, dark yet very clear, with a cottony head of tan that recedes quickly. Aroma: subtle pecan and walnut, a little caramel, a dash of buttery vanilla. Mild caramel sweetness runs through the flavor, which is accented with very subtle nuttiness. Flavor is light and more like an amber ale than a brown. Medium-light body, mild CO2. Drinkable but a bit soft in flavor.

On tap at Cooter Brownís Tavern. This beer is very smooth compared to other nut ales there is no bitterness to it. It doesnít smell like pecans but you do get a taste of it on the back end. Very good!

This beer is smooth and easy to drink with subtle notes of pecan shells. I bought this beer at a local Specs store by chance and I have gone back to buy 3 six packs since.

From bottle, pours a clear dark brown with red hues, large beige head that stays around. Nose is yeast, brown sugar, nuts. Medium body, sweet, soft carbonation, slightly oily. Long pecan finish, with more brown sugar. Exactly what I expected, enjoyable, one of the better browns Iíve had.

(draft @ Huck Finnís Cafe - New Orleans, LA) Brown pour with a thick tan head. Nutty and sweet caramel aroma. Mild flavor of sweet malts and a light hint of pecans. Pretty nice but wouldíve been better with a bit more pecan flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma right off, to me, is something of an unknown. Malty and nutty. Thatís about all...Appearance is dark copper color. Pours a pretty thick tan head, not much lacing....Taste, this is the one youíre interested in, at least I am. Itís pretty good. Roasted pecan, maybe pecan shell, maybe that papery thing between the pecan halves. Either way, thereís some pecan in there. There is some maltiness. The taste is pretty good....Palate is pretty smooth, drinkable, but not sessionable. I canít really say why. I could drink a couple of these back to back, but not much more than that. Overall,itís good, not great. I would buy it again, but more for the "Hey, look what I found!!" to share with friends, than the qualities the beer brings.
