A nice, easy to drink brown Ale. Lots of Carmel and toffee notes, not a lot of bitterness. Good session brown. MaltOne (371) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2017
Pours dark clear brown. Big pecan aroma. Taste is also pecan and leaning toward sweet. Minor notes of coffee. A bit of a novelty, but not bad. (in LA) nuplastikk (6277) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2016
16oz can. Pretty deep brown body. Steady beige head. Certainly nutty, but not in a natural way..in an oily extract or just strong candy pecan way. So I guess it is good, like flavored soda is good, it has unique flavors. Not really a solid beer, mostly because it really hides a thin boring body behind those artificial tones. Artificial burnt plastic aroma. PugUglyBrewer (658) - - OCT 28, 2016
Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass. Way too much carbonation as the head of foam explodes upward levaing only a literal half a glass of beer. Truly a bad omen before the tasting. Candied pecans up front with a sharp malt grain aroma almost like a syrupy low grade canadian whiskey. The taste is not much better being a syrupy malty caramel with pecan influence. The finsih is slightly metallic and mineral. Just not worth a second try.

Aroma: Artificial pecan syrup, kid’s pecan cereal (if that were a thing)
Taste: Sweet with a lot of artificial vanilla and fake pecan flavor
Overall: Overwhelmingly artificial and sweet. Drain pour.
Tall boy into a pint glass. Pours a medium brown with a moderate khaki head. Nose is pralines, and the taste follows. Nice balance between the pecan pie sweetness and the bitterness on the finish. Pretty decent novelty beer. KUEric (976) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2016
The aroma is too candied pecans. Its like a desert smell. The look is nice, deep, dark reddish brown with a small head. The flavor is a bit much on the pecan, a bit much on the mixed bitter-flatness. Just not my cup of beer. Marheb (5755) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 7, 2016
(En fût à Square One Pizza Cafe): Des effluves puissantes de pecan et de céréales grillées qui se transposent assez bien en saveurs. Le corps est mince et aérien, hautement engouffrable. slowrunner77 (12044) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 30, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2016 Decent nutty brown ale - more pecan and caramel than dark roast. Medium bodied, finishing bittersweet. A little heavy handed on the adjuncts. Pleasant in small samples. Didn’t want a pint, though. Can.
