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.

Not sure what to say about this beer. Has little flavor. Do taste and smell pecans. Dark brown. No head. Light. Drinkable but nothing memorable. No hoppyness or bitterness. Thought it was bland and unfulfilling. Just there. No bad, not great either.

Had high hopes for this but began the let down spiral on pour. Not much head at all, even with a fairly aggressive pour. No lacing to speak of either. Nose was nearly nonexistent, save for a whiff of toasted malts but not much a whiff at that. Taste was at best, boring. Nothing pecan or intriguing about this at all. Even that which made it a brown ale was not really good. Body was thin. Just not something that I enjoyed, obviously....

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is nutty, bready. Taste is of pecans, malts, mild sweetness, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

Not as bitter as expected. Lightly sweet. Not very hoppy. Smooth. Pecan flavor is not prominent but it does have a nutty scent.
