Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 03-26-2005

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 nonick pint. Consumed seven weeks after bottling.

Appearance: A coppery bronze, with a 2" head.

Aroma: Somewhat malty, somewhat sweet.

Taste: Classic brown ale flavors. Not much pecan flavor, if any.

Mouthfeel: Typical for a brown.

Overall: Not a bad beer. No bitterness. But there's just not enough nutty flavor to market this as a pecan-ish beer.

It was drinkable but I expected much more flavor. Didn't give what the label said. No pecan in smell or taste. Ok but not a stand out in anyway.

Didn't really do much for me. No aroma, tasted like a regular brown ale with just a hint of "pecan"

Pours clear copper with small white head, smells of pecan, malt caramel and yeast, tastes nutty with maltiness and slight hops, average mouthfeel.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look - Pours a nice dark brown with rapidly vanishing white head. Lacing remains on sides of glass.

Smell - Grass, pecan, caramel, malt, pecan pie

Taste - Nice brown ale taste up front with the pecan on the finish. Finishes very dry, hardly any aftertaste. Wish there was more here.

Feel - Very light and carbonated. Definitely a sessionable beer, especially with the low ABV levels.

Overall - Below what I had hoped for, but not bad at all. I probably wouldn't spend my hard earned money on this, but would gladly drink one anytime.

Had this on 2015-01-12 in Spartanburg, SC

Definitely notice the pecan flavor. Good bit of malt flavor and sweetness for the low ABV.

Rather tasty, very smooth and easy to drink. Session Brown that is tasty enough to enjoy and drink all night.

I really enjoyed this beer. It's light in body but the pecan and brown ale flavors are very pronounced. Excellent brew.
