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.

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.

Amber-brown color, clear. Tons of carbonation rising. Thick creamy beige head.

Toasted malts, brown sugar, a little leafy hops.

Toasted malts, brown bread, nutty, caramel. Mild hop bitterness towards the end. Finish is dry. Body is light-medium, very smooth, dry.

It's a very good beer.

Along with this beer one must be in a particular mindset. Sitting on the balcony of a bar overlooking a town square encased by dirt roads with the smell of soft tobacco wafting close by. It's remarkable clear, dark amber syrup is served with zero head that won;t entrap the dust let off by the foot traffic on the streets below. The sweet smells of warm brown sugar and molasses, caramel malts, and a light nutty fruitiness. Mellow and soft on the palate, it's good for sipping or a walloping good night. It's very sweet on the palate at times with richer treacle and molasses being replaced by an all too prominent butterscotch flavor. A slight flavor of pecan thins the taste out on the palate accompanied by watery, dank tasting grains.
Overall, I don't think the sweetness is overpowering, but rather straightforwardly brash. The pecan flavor plays into the novelty, and so does the fact I think it a fitting beer for a Saturday match-up between Ole Miss and Auburn.
