This beer is light molasses color with a thin tan head and some lace. It has a wonderful aroma of spicy hop, brown sugar, light fruit. This is a deep, rich bouquet and it is very inviting.
Flavor is light and woody with good depth to the malt flavor. A light roasted flavor gently emerges toward the center and is boosted off the palate by a leathening malt sweetness mixed with a slight yeast bite. Herbal hops make a great finish, but leave a slightly soapy aftertaste.
I am unclear on weather pecan is actually an intended flavor element, ingredient, etc...I can't really taste any of that character and I am not too sorry really. Another well-known southern brewer has recently introduced a "pecan brown ale" that I find rather unpleasant, and I am thankful to be spared any artificial extract flavorings.
I wish I could rate this a little higher but there are definately some off-flavors here. Having said that, I like them, I think they play well together, and this makes for a very warm and homey take on the brown ale.

Pours a deep amber brownish color with nice clarity. A bit on the reddish side for a brown ale. No head at all present. The nose starts with some brown bread, oatmeal, and light nutty notes. Not sure that I would pick the nuttiness out as pecan, but there is definitely some influence from the adjuncts. Taste is watery with nutty notes and hints of grain. No hops noted in the flavor but some bitterness at the finish makes for an unpleasant finish. Mouthfeel is light and low carbonation. Overall, this beer is not well executed. It tastes like a really light watery beer with some adjunct flavors added. Would not return to this beer.
