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.

T: Candy-like sweetness, slightly malty and nutty, caramel as well. Medium low clean bitterness, some herbal tea hop flavor. Semi-sweet caramel malt in the finish.

Solid beer, really enjoyed the nuttiness. Very enjoyable English brown ale.

A-Dark roasted chestnut with crimson undertones. Mild head leaves moderate lacing. Body is mostly clear.

S-Tons of sweetness. Not a ton of complexity. Just a bunch of sweet sugars and light nuttiness. A light flick of cocoa powder.

T-Had it twice, both times on tap. I found the first tap to be much tastier. On the second go around, there was a form of sweetness that was almost cheesy and cloying. Really unattractive. But during the first experience, I got some nice nuttiness and vanilla and cocoa powder. Either way, I was never really happy with it.

M-Quite light and bubbly. Body goes down fairly clean. Carbonation was one of the brightest points of the beer.

O/D-Liked it once, HATED it the second time. Maybe the second keg was screwy? Either way, I was happy to try it but would probably avoid it if I ever saw it again.

I was excited to try this one, and it turned out a bit flat. On draft at Vello's in Gainesville. Pours a light brown color with a creamy off white head. Aroma is slight nut, maybe a little grain, and some skunkiness unfortunately. Thin mouthfeel, a little watery, with low to medium carbonation. Flavor is lacking, with watered down grains, no sweetness, and a finish that is a bit unpleasant. I wouldn't go after this again. Maybe worth a try once for the Mississippi tick.

served on draft in a tall pilsner glass. Oh well, I guess then only have one type of glass. They need to get some nonic english pint glasses.

appears dark brown, with red ruby highlights. Taste is rich sweet caramel taste. the nuttiness is there too. Aroma is not quite as sweet at the taste. Medium body and carbonation

overall - nice for a pint or too, but could get cloying after a few.
