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.

Pours a clear dark reddish brown with a small off-white head. There is no lacing.

Smell is strongly of roasted nuts with a little bit of a sweet smell thrown in. Fairly one dimensional but pleasant.

The taste is very nutty with pecans definitely present. It isn't overpowering but rather compliments the beer nicely. There is a tiny bit of roastiness and a nice bitterness on the finish.

Overall this is a pretty enjoyable, if not simple, beer. There are not many complexities but it is a unique offering and one that should be sought out.

Copper brown with a white head. No lacing.

Aroma is a malty nuttiness. Nothing spectacular, but pleasant. Taste really brings it home though. Great medley of pecan and malt, with a sweet, but not cloying, backbone. Very tasty. Has an aftertaste that almost reminds me of sweet tea. Mouthfeel is good -- medium bodied, appropriate carbonation.

Really an excellent beer that exceeded my expectations. I think this is the best "session" strength beer I've ever had. Instant favorite of mine.

This is an interesting beer that I'm glad I had the pleasure of tasting. I'd say it's more of a sipper than a drinker but good none the less. It pours a really deep amber with a quick release of carbonation that fizzles out as quickly as it fizzles up. The smell of rather boozy with some nutty accents and some roasted malt but only a touch. Although, I'm sure the roasted accents are actually from the pecans rather than malt.

This is a rich tasting beer. You do get the nuttiness with every sip. It's different than actually eating roasted pecans but it certainly reminds you of the experience. I rather enjoyed it. I also get the malt, almost to a fault. I think I would have preferred the beer to be a little brighter and more balanced. I enjoyed the beer more as it warmed, stronger nut flavor, which is really what this beer is all about.

I could see enjoying one of these in front of a fire over the holidays.

12oz bottle into a snifter.

Got this as part of a beer of the month club package.

A - Pours an amazingly clear, reddish, rusty copper with a one finger off white head which quickly recedes leaving a thin ring at the edges of the glass with absolutely zero lacing. After the lacing dies down, i would swear that looking at this beer and not knowing it was a beer, i would think its a brandy or cognac. Thats how clear it is.

S – Fairly sweet smelling. Some hints of caramel and bread. I don’t pick up any hop characters in this beer. Fairly nutty smelling.

T – ats' a bit nu-tee. Nice malty sweetness up front gives way to a healthy, nutty finish. The finish leaves your mouth feeling like you some nuts.

M - Light body with medium-light carbonation. Very light and crisp drinking.

O – Overall this was a good beer. Brown ales are one of my least favorite styles if you can call it a style. It seems like when someone doesn’t know what to call a beer it gets grouped into the Brown Ale category. This beer however really obviously deserves to be in this category. Its very simple and yet refined and tasty.

A-Pours a clear deep amber color, no brown in sight, but it has a nice thick, creamy off white head that has good retention and lacing.
S-The aroma is kind of weird for a brown ale, it's very fruity, like a good english amber. No nuts, or coffee, typical for a good brown ale. Hmmm... don't know what else to say.
T-Same as aroma, no nuts or coffee notes, lots of fruity esters and sweet watery caramel. MAYBE the slightest hint of nuts in the flavor.
M-It's a crisp light slightly dry mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Not very fitting for the style indeed.
O-It's hard for me to give a negative review, so I will say this beer is not "bad" perse, just not a brown ale... Very off from the style imo.
