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.

3.7/5  rDev +2.8%

Appearance - Pours a relatively clear deep copper color with an off-white head that peaks at about a finger's width. Sub-par retention leads to a mostly barren surface and a thin ring of suds around the edge. Nothing in terms of lacing. 3.5

Smell - Nutty aroma with some sugary sweetness. Hints of earth. 3.5

Taste - Light, but flavorful. Malty sweetness upfront with lesser notes of pecan. Pecan strengthens toward the finish, then a touch of earth in the aftertaste. 3.75

Mouthfeel - Light in body with moderate carbonation. Goes down easy enough. 3.75

Overall - A solid all-around brew. The additions of pecan do well to add a distinct pecan flavor, so that's a plus. Overall it's a bit lighter than what I like in a brown, but as an English style it's to be expected. I'd likely buy it again if I ever saw it, but I'm not going out of my way or making a trade to get it again. 3.75

This is a good break from some standard beers. It has a sweet taste that makes it a very good dessert beer, or just a change of pace from some others. I'm typically a hoppy beer lover, but this one surprised me. I wouldn't make it a permanent fixture in my fridge, but it is a welcome visitor!

Nice overall beer, but lack the advertised pecan taste. Very similar to other nut brown ales but was looking for the pecan to be a difference. I served this beverage at 38 degrees and that may have been a little to cold, so I will try it later this week at 42 degrees to see if the pecan flavor stands out. The low IBU's at 19 makes this beer good for a social setting because their is not bitter hops.
