3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown color. Two-finger head of tan foam. Retention is okay and lacing is minimal.
Roasted pecans and toasted malts. Light caramel notes. Mostly, it just smells lightly sweet.
Good, solid brown ale, with a nice level of nuttiness. Some hints of pecan flavor and acidity. Light caramel maltiness. Biscuity.
Light body. Nice and smooth.
This would be a great session beer. Low ABV, which is undetectable, when drinking. Good, smooth and easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
APPEARANCE- medium broen in color (you may say pecan). Pretty light off-white head.
Slight malty notes. Not too much else to it.
FLAVOR- smooth, touch of malty sweetness. I may taste a bit of a nuttiness if I try hard.
NOTES- tastes a lot like a traditional (not hopppy) brown. This gets extra points for having no discernable hop in this hop crazy world. If they’re in there for bittering, it’s a perfectly small amount.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 3/20
Was really disappointed overall with this beer. I picked up a single to try anticipating at least a hint of pecans as it touts being brewed with whole roasted pecans. It was like every other craft brew I have ever tried, with one bad twist-a bad aftertaste.

Dark brown color. Has a pleasant mild aroma. Wonderful combination of pecans, walnuts, caramel, vanilla, butter, malt, and oak char.It has a hint of sweetness but its not over powering. Finishes clean and smooth. This was a wonderful beer, easy to drink but full of flavor.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Malty brew that is generally low on aromas and flavors. Fair bit of body that turns thin and watery on the finish. Unsatisfying.
