Clear, reddish-brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is nutty with a touch of bread. It has a medium body with creamy texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet and slightly roasted. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 5, 2016
4 oz sample pours brown with a off white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, nutty and some resit. Taste is nutty malts and pecans. freekyp (2235) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2015
On tap at Edgewild in Chesterfield, MO. This N. English Brown was spicy, earthy, and toasty in equal measure. Mild cocoa powder and harmonious mildly floral and spicy hops carried through from the nose to the flavor. Balanced with some mild dark toast notes and a slight rise in bittering hops as the glass emptied. Only mildly nutty. Lots of flavor is packed into this mild easy drinking brown. Another one I wish I could get back home. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2015
1/25/15. On tap at 21st St, STL. Served in a broken glass, on fire. Too soon? Brown pour under a small khaki head, mild lacing. Nutty aroma, toast, doughy malts. Nutty flavor, biscuit, doughy, that Fat Tire huskiness. Not bad. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at the brewery (Florissant, MO). Pours a deeper brownish hue, some nice haziness with nice ruby glow on the edges and bottom. Frothy offwhite headf atop films as a nice layer, looser ring stays subtle, mellow lacing overall. Aromas are a touch carmelized, a bit of biscuit, faint toast. Some gentle brown malt grows with nuttiness, earthy and semi sweet pecans, bit biscuity. Initial is medium bodied, some sweet pecan, a touch of caramel meets brown earthy malts quickly. Some cocoa powder, touches of caramel. Gentle body. Some sweetness, a bit of smoothed out caramel and pecan, a touch buttery with still firmer earth, brown malt and toastiness as we round the corner. The pecan is nice, a compliment rather than a trendsetter. A bit earthy, toasty and a bit bitter as we finish, lingering carmelized and brown malts hang on. This works, a bit dry, earthy as we end. Not necessarily my style but a solid beer I think. Nose a bit deadened.

Samples from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a a tan head this dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of dark grain with some light roasted malt and a bit of sweet pecan coming through. Flavor has a nice pecan and sweet dark grain combination with a touch of roast underlying.

3oz on tap at the brewpub, during my stay in STL for RBSG. Mildly hazy amber color. Thin off-white head. Leaves loose bits of lace. Toasty spicy aroma. Earthy, kind of spicy. I don’t get too much pecan, wouldn’t notice it at all if it wasn’t in the name. Just tastes like an English brown ale, pretty much. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter.

Very sweet. Medium body. Not much for head. Nuts, toast, herbs, caramel. Good selections. thedm (6177) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2013
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation very hazy light brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering malty aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of nutty roasted malt brown malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. ryanfolty (2545) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2013
February 13, 2013 - on tap at Royale. Brown pour with some head and lacing. Malty and nutty aroma with a touch of hops. Taste was spot on with aroma, nice beer just not very interesting after the others I just had.
