3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2014 Bought this in a six pack and was very excited to try it. Wasn?t what I expected but wasn?t bad either. Pours mahogany brown with big off white head that is comparable to Dr pepper. Aroma is weak and nutty. Tastes good but nothing special. Thin in the mouth but not watery. Pretty good just not as good as I anticipated.
Bottle [from trade with Jtclockwork, thanks James, my last missing US state!!] @ tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Joes. Clear amber color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, caramel, a bit sweet and nutty at the same time. Average body, thin texture, average carbonation. DutchDrebus (6240) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2017

I got this bottle in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks John!
It pours from 12oz bottle a clear deep amber with a nice 2 finger head of foam and lots of lacing.
The smell is malty, nutty, and has some citrus hops there as well.
The taste on first sip and I immediately notice the pecan influence. Nice. After another sip or 2, I get a good caramel malt backbone that works quite well with the nuttiness and I'm surprised at how good a mouthfeel this has...quite silky. It finishes with that citrus hop flavour that I noted in the smell. This is a very nice Brown Ale indeed and the foam does a pretty good job sticking around for the entire session.
Bottom line: This is a well crafted example of the style and I really like how the pecan interacts with the other flavours. A very good session beer to boot!
I'm a boring beer drinker. Mostly I hate anything that isn't domestically mass produced. This is the first craft type beer I've liked. Bravo. ETBASS (1) - Clinton, Missouri, USA - SEP 18, 2017 does not count
Very smooth creamy flavor, allows the patron to enjoy more than one since it is not a heavy beer. On tap at the Clinton Elks Lodge, Clinton, Missouri

12 oz. bottle pours a clear reddish brown with small off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma is malty and nutty, with pecans, roasted malts, brown sugar, and vanilla. Taste is slightly sweet with a dry finish. Body is medium with slight carbonation and a syrupy mouthfeel. hman43 (1802) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2017
It pours light brown with a light brown head. Head retention is moderately low. The beer is clear overall. It has aromas of roasted nuts, pecans, and caramel. There are some slight spicy elements in the background. There is a strong nut flavor that is highlighted by pecans. There are some elements of caramel and other nuts with light spice. It has a moderate body with a lightly bitter finish. Overall, this is a nutty beer with light spiciness. kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUL 9, 2017
Deep copper color. Nose is nuts and malts. Pecans are noticeable, but the beer lacks body and balance. swesson (471) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2017
