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.

M 3 - thinner body, moderate carbonation, finishes sweet with minimal bitterness

12oz bottle (bottled on 07/18/14) poured into a Libby globe porter glass.

Appearance: Clear dark amber trending towards a mahogany color. Thin white ring at the edge. An occasional strand of lacing here and there.

Smell: Sweet – brown sugar, caramel, and it smells just barely of pecans. It smells a bit like a faint pecan pie, but maybe not as buttery. As it warms up there is a hint of clove, roasted dry pecans, and something leafy.

Taste: Sweet again, maybe a little too sweet. Brown sugar, caramel, but with some pecan nuttiness again, but it’s lost in the sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation – not fizzy but higher than I’d like it to be. Gets a bit fizzier as it warms up. A bit watery.

Overall / Drinkability: Sounded like a very promising beer, but by the end I feel like it fell short. Like a pecan soda with alcohol in it. I don’t think I’ll have again. Not a bad beer, just not a good one, and I like pecans. Oh well.

Definitely something unique, one of my first forays into specialty brews and a mainstay at my household.

The first thing I noticed about this beer is the deep color when poured. Very dark mahogany, clear with almost no head. A nice, deep, nutty smell with hints of caramel and vanilla.

Comes clear onto the tongue and hits the back of the mouth with a sweet, nutty flavor. It feels smooth and creamy as it rolls over the tongue.

Aftertaste gives a lingering taste of the roasted pecans with a light sweetness in the mouth.

Overall a very pleasant drinking experience. It is quite good for the price it's sold at in NOLA. I almost always have a bottle somewhere in the house since its such a nice beer to sit back and relax with. It has depth and complexity, but not to the extent where drinking it is a task to focus on. Cheers Lazy Magnolia, on a very solid solid beer.

A: 4.0 - Dark walnut color with a slow-forming, but eventually dense, lasting head.
S: 3.75 - Pleasant malty aroma, slightly nutty. I can't pick out pecans per se. Light caramel.
T: 3.75 - Soft sweet malt, no black patent or roasted tastes to be found. Caramel with a hint of vanilla. Nuttiness is subtle but present, and is detectably pecan-y now.
M: 4.0 Creamy, soft mouthfeel.
O: 3.75 Nice brown ale, though not exciting.

Weighting (percentages): 20, 20, 40, 5, 15. Avg: 3.81

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. My first Mississippi beer!

Appearance: medium amber-brown hue with a light haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a finger of creamy tan foam. A nice-looking brown ale.

Smell: sweet malt with vanilla, caramel and a light toastiness. The nuttiness of the pecans really comes through as well. Pretty good, I'd say, if a little sweet.

Taste: very much like the aroma, with toasted malt, caramel sweetness and plenty of nuttiness. An interesting take on the style.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a pretty good creaminess. I like it well enough.

Overall: there's no doubt about it, you have to like a nutty flavor to like this beer. But I think it's definitely worth a try.
