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.

Ruby red pour with dark brown hues accenting. Has some head initially but it dissipates quickly leaving just the body. Nutty aroma at first, then stale malts take over. Compared to the smell initially, this overall aroma is surprisingly poor.

Taste isn't much better as English yeast imparts its typically dry profile over the sub-par malt base. Some nuttiness creeps in to impart a small amount of alternate flavor, but nothing can save this from mediocrity. Not worth your money.

Thanks to MMAJYK for this one. Into a Fuller's nonic.

A: Pours more red than brown with an off white head that quickly fades away. Clear, no sediment. Color is a little weird but overall it doesn't look too bad.

S: Not much going on here, slight nuttiness, a bit of caramel and slightly buttery. Not bad but not a ton going on either.

T: Like the nose, some caramel and butter, slightly nutty with some citrus on the finish. Slightly toasty as well. Fairly sweet with a long lingering finish. A little lighter in flavor than I expected but not offensive.

M: Pretty thin, carbonation is on the lower side.

O: Not too bad, but a little more malt character would help this out a lot. Still an interesting beer.

A: Dark amber, almost light brown body with a one inch marshmallow head, a bit of lacing.

S: Pecans come through nicely up front. Caramel toasty malts follow.

T: Much like the nose, you get nuts up front, followed by toasted malts with hints of brown sugar and caramel. Slightly bitter finish. Dryer finish than you would expect. Very good.

M: I think this is its weakest characteristic. Not a very strong body to this beer. I like a bigger, more full-bodied brown ale. Granted, brown ales are my favorite style, so I expect a lot out of them.

Overall, I really like this brown ale. I think the pecans are a nice touch. I just wish it were a littttle more full-bodied.
