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.

A: Clear dark brown with a thin line of bubbles for a head.

S: A fruity and nutty toasted malt aroma.

T: Sweet toasted malts blend with a nice roasted pecan flavor. There is also a touch of fruity ester in there. Finishes sweet with the roasted pecan flavor lingering.

M: Medium body with lower carbonation and a very smooth feel to it.

O: A nice Brown Ale with a very smooth and rich roasted pecan flavor. I really liked this beer. Nice on a cold night....recommend it.

Pours a nice transparent amber to copper with a foamy off-white head that retains through the duration. Typical brown ale notes with a distinct but balanced/not overpowering nuttiness and pecan sweetness. Not a lot of hops, but it's in balance. This is my first experience with this brewery, and I like it a whole lot. Looking forward to trying more.

I had this on-tap with dinner in Tupelo, Mississippi. This is good stuff. It has the taste of pecans without being a praline/desert beer. I'm really glad the brewer didn't decide to get cute with it. It went well with the crab cakes. I would gladly have a couple more again.

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.
