Notes/Commercial Description:
Southern Pecan Nut Brown Ale is the first beer in the world, to our knowledge, made with whole roasted pecans. The pecans are used just like grain and provide a nutty characteristic and a delightful depth to the flavor profile. This beer is very lightly hopped to allow the malty, caramel, and nutty flavors shine through. The color is dark mahogany. Southern Pecan won a Bronze Medal in the 2006 World Beer Cup in the Specialty Beer category.

Not sure what to say about this beer. Has little flavor. Do taste and smell pecans. Dark brown. No head. Light. Drinkable but nothing memorable. No hoppyness or bitterness. Thought it was bland and unfulfilling. Just there. No bad, not great either.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: 4 - A dark copper color with a thin head.

Smell: 3.25 - Some sweetness. It smells a lot like bread. Some sort of whole grain bread. Luck for this beer, I enjoy the smell of bread. It doesn't smell like pecan pie, not like I was expecting it to or anything...overall a pretty mild scent.

Taste: 3.75 - Nice! I wasn't really expecting any pecan flavor whatsoever, but I do! I really do! It's there! And quite nice I might add. The sweetness compliments the pecan flavor well, and I can taste some brown sugar as well. My hair isn't blown back or anything, but this has quite an enjoyable taste.

Feel: 3.75 - A little on the watery side, but I've certainly had worse. Like, there are some that are straight beer water. This one has a little more body than that. It's drinkable with some mild carbonation. For this style, this is about what I'd expect.

Overall: 3.68 - A decent beer, deserving of a C rating. There's a time and place for this beer, but I'd certainly have it again!

Overly sweet aroma and taste. This beer is thinner than one would expect for the sugary content. Small head, but decent spots for lace. No notable hop, cloy aftertaste of white cane sugar.

Thin head, low carbonation. Sweet finish. Not a beer I would buy again.
