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 dark but not black with substantial head that faded quickly.
The nose was slightly sweet but also kind of a mystery.
Taste was sweet with slight nuttiness and mild bitterness that leads to a very refreshing and sessionable beer despite its simplicity.

Very refreshing and well balanced. Poured into a Samuel Adams glass resulting in a rapidly dissipating head with good lacing. Received as part of a gift package. If it was available where I live it would be a part of my rotation.

Good for a dinner drink or for lunch, not at a bar. Smooth bitterness and really some hop hints combined with low to medium carbonation makes it that.

From a 12 oz. bottle

Clear brown with red highlights. One finger variegated white head. Full surface cap, spotty lacing.
Roasty malt, light nutty aromas.
Some hop bitterness up front, noticeable pecan flavor but not overwhelming, slightly sweet, light herbal flavor.
Medium bodied, good carbonation, dry finish.
Does well accompanying a substantial meal.

Rich ruby red-brown color with decent head and some lacing. Smell is all around average. Taste is good, rich lightly roasted malt flavor and some hint of nuttiness. A little lighter in flavor than I’d prefer. This exemplifies a lot of what I like in a beer. Rich light roast malt flavor, very light hops, and 1 adjunct being showcased. Like it a lot.

A Microbrewed Beer Club offering. Pours a medium brown color with a minimal head that disappears quickly. Aroma is brown sugar and pecans. Taste is sweet malts. No bitterness at all. Goes down easy.

Poured a copper-brown body with light density and some good head that quickly died. The aroma is mild, slightly airy, with a touch of nuttiness and maltiness but had on draft and it is a rather subdued aroma. Light, clean, smooth, has a minimal grainy sweetness along with some maltiness underneath a dry stiffness that had some hops poking through it. Easy to drink and light-bodied but not much going on in this beer nor worth trying.
