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.

This a smooth lighter tasting brown ale. Taste is mildly bitter with a nutty finish. Pleasant after taste lingers and you really pick up the pecan on the finish. Overall not a bad beer, but I wouldn't call it great either.

Appearance - Pours a relatively clear deep copper color with an off-white head that peaks at about a finger's width. Sub-par retention leads to a mostly barren surface and a thin ring of suds around the edge. Nothing in terms of lacing.

Smell - Nutty aroma with some sugary sweetness. Hints of earth.

Taste - Light, but flavorful. Malty sweetness upfront with lesser notes of pecan. Pecan strengthens toward the finish, then a touch of earth in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with moderate carbonation. Goes down easy enough.

Overall - A solid all-around brew. The additions of pecan do well to add a distinct pecan flavor, so that's a plus. Overall it's a bit lighter than what I like in a brown, but as an English style it's to be expected. I'd likely buy it again if I ever saw it, but I'm not going out of my way or making a trade to get it again.

This is, by far, the worst beer I have ever had.
