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.

Poured from the bottle into a beer glass.
A: Pours a medium, translucent brown. The head was about finger's width high when first poured, then quickly retreated down and to the sides. It has a very light tan color to it. The lacing slides back to the drink quickly and uniformly.

S: This beer has a rich caramel aroma to it. The roasted pecan leaves a wonderful aroma. There is also a honey sweetness in the background.

T: The hops impart a very nice bitterness to the beer. The roasted nut tastes come after the initial bitterness, then a slightly sweet honey taste comes in and under that. The finish starts off sweet, and then it turns to bitterness, and lingers for a decent bit.

Mf: It has a light-medium body to it, which is fine considering the ABV. The carbonation is a little on the lighter side, which also works fine for this beer. It is a bit astringent.

Overall: This is a pretty good brown ale. The aromas and tastes of it are very enjoyable; definitely it's high points. The appearance and mouthfeel are pretty usual for a brown ale. I had to let mine stand for a while before I could really separate the scents and taste it was giving off. The only thing that I could detect when it was cold were the caramel on the nose and the hops in the taste. It took a while for it to open up, but it was worth it. I will buy this one again.

3.09/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Had one of these 2 nights ago at O'Henry's in Metairie (New Orleans).

Light brown with tinges of red. Big foamy head (might be due to the frosted glass it was served in).

Aroma is mostly malts with hints of caramel and nuts.

Pretty tame flavour. Chewy malts with hints of nuts and some caramel.

A little watery for a brown ale, but not bad (again, could be due to the frosted glass it was served in).

Pretty decent beer. Nothing special, but worth a try.
