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.

Dark amber color when poured, the head on it was light tan in color and kinda thick.

Smell was very nutty.The pecan flavor is pretty strong in this beer, with a nice maltiness behind it.

I have a party pig of this and its better then the "on tap" ones I have had. It seems that some of the local places just dont know how to clean their lines who knows. But, I really enjoy this beer and would go buy another party pig for sure.

This is one of my favorites. It has such a great style about it. Once i poured it into my glass and took a sniff or two it was heaven. It has a really sweet nutty smell to it. The pecans really work well into this brew. The head was somewhat foamy and dissipated rather quickly which was sad. But the taste made up for it 4 times over. It starts off real malty and the the finish is nice and sweet. No disappointments at all other than the head.

Won this brew in a LIF thanks to Life is good
12 oz bottle poured into my beautiful lazy magnolia pint glass. It was wonderful amber brown topped of with a finger worth of tan head that left good lacing

The aromas are fantastic on this brew. You get the nutty pecan, sweet malts and caramels along with some bread yeast so it smells like a warm pecan pie

Flavors are great as well, great nuttiness to it, excellent malt character sweetness but not overtly so. One of my favorite nut browns to come out of a bottle I would love to try it from the keg. A medium bodied brew with good carbonation

This was my favorite brown from the bottle so far. Highly sessionable, if I had more than one that is. Very pleased with this one added it back on my wants list if that means anything
