Food & Beer Friday :: It's got nuts in it.

I'm going to be honest, I'm feeling quite under the weather.  A cold has hit me, and I can not even breathe through my nose.  This week's focus is going to be short and sweet.

Abita's Pecan Harvest Ale is one of three Harvest Ales (although you may know Abita best for their Purple Haze beer).  This one debuts in the fall along with the nut and pumpkin season!  I love that Abita has their nutrition facts displayed along with the info about the beer.  A cool 150 calories and even close to 3g of protein!

This beer is brewed with Louisiana pecans, lots of different hops, and caramel malt.  It's an amber color and super easy to drink.  The beer lends a bit of a nutty flavor.  Don't expect a pecan pie or anything, but I thought this beer was light and easy to drink.  While I enjoyed the variety of the Pecan Harvest Ale, I'm still vying to get back to my pumpkin beers in October :)

Oh my gosh. That looks delicious! I really enjoy beer with flavor added, like lime or grapefruit, but this would be even better since it's fall. I'm going to have to try it. I hope you feel better soon! Colds suck.
