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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Look - dark amber in color, with a good two fingers worth of foam that dissipates pretty slowly.

Smell - Sweet and nutty smelling, maybe slight hint of molasses. Smells like a wonderful pecan pie.

Taste and Mouthfeel - Tastes less like pecans than it smells. Nut taste gives it a tinge that goes away from any bitterness but the malty taste is still present. Fairly well-balanced texture, but slightly toward the watery side.

Drinkability - I went into this tasting with some skepticism due to being such a fan of Southern Pecan, but this is a pretty decent brew. I'd like to taste them both back to back sometime to make a fairer comparison. Complex enough in its taste and a pretty good-tasting brew.
