Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

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.

From the bottle, it pours a clear brown the a modest head, soon diminishing to a robust ring. Sweetish scent in the nose. In the mouth, it is malty and roasty.

Southern Pecan pours a translucent brown color, with a small head. Sweet aroma, lots of sugar and molasses. Flavor is on the lighter side, but nice sweet pecan flavors, hints of molasses. Watery body. Overall, a very good sweeter brown ale, just a little too light and watery.

Poured from 12oz bottle into glass. Label has bottling date marked as 'JUN 8 2018'.
Clear, deep amber (described by brewer as "mahogany") colored body. One finger light tan head settles to thin, bubbly cap. Leaves behind a few trails of lacing.
Subtle aroma is medium roasted malts and nutty.
Taste is medium roasted malts, nutty, and some caramel. More sweet than bitter.
Thin mouth feel. Good carbonation.
Okay brown ale with the nutty addition of the pecans. Good to pair with barbeque and smoked cheeses.

Great for brown ale. Carmelized malt with sweet brown bread at beginning and mild hint of bitter after taste. Very smooth and enjoyable. My wife’s favorite so far.

From a 12oz bottle marked July 2018. Translucent brown with a lacing of bubbles. Faint aroma of brown sugar and malt. Medium feel with small prickly bubbles. Roasted malt flavors with some hints of pecan. Not the most exciting, but true to style. Would make a good session beer.

I'm kicking myself. I bought a bottle as part of a "make your own 6 pack" at Kroger's in Hilton Head last week. Didn't think much of it, except that I like pecans. And brown ale. But when I tried it, I really loved it. Now I wish I had purchased more to bring home. Beautiful brown (a bit hazy) in the glass, with a nice tan head that fell quickly and laced a bit on the way down. Very subtle roast malt in the nose, with just a hint of roast in the taste. Add a slight bitterness (rather than the expected sweetness) and a lighter body, and it made for a simple, refreshing beer. Extremely drinkable. I didn't get the pecans (e.g., flavor), but who cares? I liked this one a lot. And Total Wine says I have to go all the way to NC to find it from the north. Oh well. Maybe next trip.
