Notes/Commercial Description:
Pecan Harvest Ale is made with real Louisiana pecans that have been toasted to perfection. That makes it something really special, because most beers with a nutty flavor or aroma aren’t made with real nuts. The natural oils from the Louisiana pecans give the ale a light pecan finish and aroma.

A: It pours a very light amber-brown color with a sizable off-white head that falls somewhat quickly as it leaves spotty lacing and a thin film over the top of the beer.

S: Not too bad. Definitely can pick up the pecans in the nose, along with a distinct malty sweetness. Swirling and warming opens up the aroma quite a bit, but it's still not incredible.

T&M: Wow. Really falls flat on the palate. An initial light bready flavor followed by a faint nuttiness and earthiness on the finish. Slight buttery flavors, as well. I think the main reason the flavor profile is so flat an uninteresting is because of the excessively light body. The body is so light that flavors don't hold up well enough to come through like they should.

D: Light body enhances drinkability, no doubt, but the flatness of the flavor profile limits the overall enjoyment of this beer. As far as I know, this is the only pecan ale besides Southern Pecan. I'll stick with Southern Pecan--it has more body and flavor. Still, this is worth seeking out for anyone eager to try a pecan ale.
