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 soapy, tan head. Soft, nutty aroma with sweet, toasted malt notes. Translucent burnt sienna/copper color. Starts with a slight sweetness, floral hops, and lightly toasted malt. Malt wells up with a biscuit flavor with more lightly toasted malt, then a robust flavor of pecans. Finish is toasted malt and pecans.

Oh, this is excellent. The lightly toasted malt pairs perfectly against the pecans, and they meld into one another very gracefully. A nice complexity of flavors, and nothing is overbearing or overshadowed; excellent craftsmanship. Color me impressed (and I'm not a big fan of Brown Ales).

Though, as I keep drinking this, the sweetness becomes a bit over-pronounced. It's like a cumulative sweetness; it lingers in my mouth and every sip becomes a touch sweeter. That's disappointing. In a smaller quantity, this was excellent. My guess is the low hopping means there's nothing to counteract the sweetness of the malt.

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.
