Brewed by:
Abita Brewing Co.
Louisiana, United States

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Pecan Harvest Ale

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: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pours a nearly 1" off white head that dissipates rapidly leaving significant lacing. Color is amber, minimal amount of carbonation bubbles streaming up.
Aroma: love the smell of this one. Malty caramel, yeasty bread, and nutty pecans with a hint of the hops in the nose as well.
Mouthfeel: fairly light bodied and watery with a pleasant finish that leaves me ready for the next sip.
Flavor: echoes the aroma with a wonderful combination of the caramel malt flavors, the nutty flavor of the roasted pecans, and a mild hop bite at the end.
Overall: Excellent and delicious.
