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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

A - medium brown in color with a 2inch head which lingers awhile. very little lacing

S - not a lot going on here. some straw and malts, maybe a little dried fruit

T - fruits and nuts up front with smoother malts towards the end. however a slightly metallic after taste

M - Very light bodied, perhaps too much. a little watery.

Overall - nothing too special about this one. probably won't try again.

possibly the first beer ive had from the state of mississippi. i wouldnt call it a brown ale either, maybe more of an english pale ale. it pours real light brown in color, but its more tan or bronze in color because of its radiance and the penetrating light. theres a nice slowly fading lace head on top. the nose is quite nutty, but also lighter on the malt roast than i expect in a brown ale. no yeast or hops to speak of at all, but i do smell what must be the pecans, and they are sweet and woody. the flavor is equally light, with the pecans really beign featured a lot more than the abita version (which is the only other pecan beer ive had). i like that this isnt spiced at all, just flavored with the nuts, which are tasted more on the back end of the trip. really light in body, id say too much so, but in the context of a steamy mississipps swamp or somethiing (sorry for the stereotype), i think its lightness would be a pro rather than a con, which it was in a denver january. smooth feel though, relaxed carbonation, and overall a beer and a brewery id really like to drink more of. who knew?

Tried this one on tap at Lynch's Irish Pub while visiting Jacksonville.

A: Deep amber to brown with a light tan head that fades relatively quickly

S: Malty, maybe some caramel aromas coming through also

T: Nutty tones, especially pecan and almond, right away, very malty with little bitterness until the finish, goes down easy

M: light-to-medium bodied, medium carbonation

O: This was a very enjoyable beer to relax with on a warm Florida afternoon. I could have two or three of this beer without getting tired of it- it has just enough of a twist to make it different from your typical brown ale.

First had: on tap at Datz Deli, Tampa, FL

Brownish/dark amber pour, small off-white head sank to a ringlet, leaving just a few spots behind on the glass. Malty nose, toasty, bready, nutty. Simple but non-offensive. Taste was similar, bready malts hinting towards caramel, toasted nuttiness, light notes of yeast and fruit rinds. Body was about medium, kind of lagerish, not great, but pretty easily drinkable overall.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark amber, with a one inch head, a bit of lacing.

S: Pecans come through. Caramel toasty malts follow.

T: you get nuts up front, followed by toasted malts with hints of brown sugar and caramel. Very good.

M: Not a very strong body to this beer. A little weak for an English style ale.

Overall, I really liked this beer! Will definitely try again. Enjoyed the pecan taste/smell. Good beer.

Pours a fairly clear dark amber color with a fluffy eggshell head that recedes slowly to leave an ample amount of lacing on the glass.

Aromas begin with sweet brown bread and toasted/caramelied nuts. There is a huge fruitiness as well which could be yeast driven.

The tastes follow the nose with toasted brown bread with a light emerging nuttiness. Earthy hops are present way in the background with the sweet caramel maltiness and fruity yeast esters dominating the flavor profile.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Finish is on the sweeter side for the style but has a fuller mouthfeel than expected for such a low ABV offering.

Overall this is very drinkable and fairly enjoyable overall. Not really as nut forward as I was hoping for or expecting in either the flavor or the aroma. The fruity English yeast aspects really came out here and elevated the candy sweet malt base almost too a fault.
