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.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, clear, amber color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that almost completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic. Lots of pecans and butter, vanilla, caramel and some toasted malt notes as well. Reminds me of toffee and butter pecan ice cream.

Taste: Malty and nutty up front, not as sweet as the aroma, but it has some nice caramel-like sweetness. Not getting much in the way of nuts in general or pecans in particular. A little more hops than I usually like, but it’s still a very tasty beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with some pretty good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.0%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty good beer. Great aroma, but not as good in flavor. Good malt presence, but a bit too much hops bitterness for me to really like. Worth a try once though for malt fans and I’m sure that hop heads will like this beer.
