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 into a pint glass. Pours dark amber with a tall, biege head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is not left on the side of the glass as the head dissipates. There are roasted malts and pecans in the aroma. The nutty smell is prominent and there's a mild sweetness as well. Sweet bready malts and pecans come through in the taste. There are some hops on the back end. The flavor is also quite clean. The body is light to medium with low carbonation. The beer is very smooth. The drinkability is high. This is a very good and refreshing beer.

12oz. bottle poured into sensory glass.

Clear reddish brown in appearance, medium white head that dissipates quickly.

In the nose, roasted malt, brown sugar, syrup, and nuts.

Thin bodied with a sweet, nutty pecan flavor up front, pronounced roasted malt throughout, and slight bitterness on the finish.

Overall, an easy drinking nut brown ale that is pretty average, nothing really outstanding, but a solid beer that is worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A red-orange color, it's pretty clear but for the darkness. The head, just slightly off-white, is about half a finger tall with decent retention and small patches of lacing left in moderation on the glass.
Yeast is a little strong, and it's primarily earthy with a toffee note before some nut comes in. I'm surprised there's not more toast, but there is caramel malt and a little biscuit. More sweetness of brown sugar kicks into the middle. It ends with a little graininess and a note of tea leaf that's the strongest indication this beer leans English at all.
While following very closely to the aroma, the flavor is a little drier and offers some notes of cocoa. It doesn't lose depth or get a little thin in taste at the end as it winds up doing in the aroma. I can understand with the different sweet and nutty flavors in this beer why some judges would like it in the undoubtedly thin specialty category in 2006, but was its consideration as an English brown glossed over? It could easily be an American brown.
The dry and powdery aspects build up a little to ease off the strong sweetness in the middle of every sip and makes for a much more pleasurable finish than it seems destined to have in its medium body.
