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.

12 oz bottle into a teku.

Appearance: Pours a dark copper color with good clarity. The head is a finger high and off-white in shade. It doesn't have a soft texture or good retention, looking a bit rough in the glass. Almost no lacing is left behind, either. (3.5)

Smell: Light, as expected. But I do pick up pecans, in a slightly roasted fashion to boot. Hints of butterscotch, toffee, and cream round it out. It also seems slightly sweet. Hardly exciting, but it does what it sets out to do. (3.25)

Taste: A slight malty touch open things up - caramel and toffee, mainly. It slowly develops mild pecan flavors, along with a sugary flavor. Slight diacetyl appears throughout. It is what it is, and that's not a bad thing. The best part? I like how the pecans don't taste remotely artificial. (3.25)

Mouthfeel: The body thickness is decent for 4.5%. Not bone-dry, but at least it doesn't leave a chemical film like some nut-laden beers tend to be (hi, Sweet Baby Jesus!) Like many low ABV brews, carbonation is fairly aggressive. (3.5)

Overall: Nothing particularly special - it is, however, a nice everyday drinker that shows off the pecan subtly yet effectively. This is a great beer to lure BMC drinkers in with; hell, I'd even consider buying it again. (3.25)

3.29/5: Not a world beater, but very approachable and easy to drink

There's nothing bad about this ale, but it doesn't have anything that will make me come back for more. There's almost no pecan taste to it, the main reason anyone would initially try it. I can barely smell any pecan aroma either. The few things that I did like is it doesn't linger, there's almost no bitterness, and it's got a good color. I'd take Newcastle over this any day.

On tap. Pours clear light brown with no head. Aromas of malt. Nut certainly comes through on the flavor, with smooth sweet malt.

Slight pecan aroma. Very light pecan taste. Not much alcohol, but smooth and tasty.
