Poured from about an inch above the glass gave this clear reddish brown colored beer a medium sized well bubbled head that fell quite quickly into no lacing what-so-ever.
Sweet roasted caramel malts and pecan aroma dominate.
Sweet roasted almost burnt caramel malts and sweet pecans in the taste of this medium bodied beer.
The aftertaste is a very light dry with a little bit of the pecan and malt hanging around.
Tastes like Newcastle Brown Ale with pecans mixed in, cool for something different but not really anything special.

Thanks to Eric for sharing this!
Served in a tumbler glass.
Bright amber color, thin layer of foam on the surface, spotty lace around the edges. Sharp clarity with some trails of carbonation rising through it.
Smelled a lot like movie theater popcorn for some reason, also nutty.
Taste was more in line with the name, discernible pecan flavor, nutty with a brief malt sweetness, and clean dry finish. Light to medium bodied with ample carbonation. If you're crazy about pecans, go nuts, otherwise it's just your average novelty beer.

Clear dark amber to light brown colored beer with a small tan colored head.
Smell is unique. Very strong toffee and butternut squash scent. Extremely nutty smelling. Strong aroma of toasted pound cake with some pecan aroma. Smells like a dessert.
Starts out sweet and buttery with a strong nut flavor. Taste like a pound cake with nuts. Strong taste of cake and vanilla along with nuts. A unique flavor to be sure.
Mouthfeel is good.
Interesting beer. I suggest you try it but don't try and drink a whole six pack of it. A Tasty dessert beer.

There is an overwhelming pecan flavor that, if you were on a mission for a pecan beer, is exactly what you were looking for. It's extremely smooth, with a bold, organic color. It has a balanced, manageable head. Overall it's a fantastic flavored beer that I would have no qualms with enjoying in excess.

Shared tonight with Mark, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a deep amber color with a smallish off white head that dissipates rather quickly. The aroma is obviously nutty, but to say it was pecan would be a stretch. Sweet caramel and toffee as well as just a hint of earthy hops round out the nose. The flavor is sweet and sugary with a caramel and nutty taste. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. This is an interesting brew that I'm glad that I got to try, although its not something that I think I could drink very much of or very often.

Attractive amber color but barely a touch of foam. Fairly spritzy in the mouth.
A fruity and peculiar flavor greets the tongue. Sort of a tomato soup taste. A little malt makes an appearance. Some faint touch of hops. Rather anemic even for a Brown Ale. A little buttery with a dishwater finish. A touch of watered-down sweet vermouth.
From the 12 oz bottle bought at Jubilation Fine Wines in Albuquerque.

O-interesting ale, but pecan flavor overwhelms and has a bit of an artificial taste to it
