Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Beautiful dark amber color with a thin head (dissipates in a matter of seconds), with a smell of wheat barley (minimal to no pecan smell). Flavor reminded me a lot of Sam Adams Boston Lager with a hint of nuttiness (but barely). I wouldn't exactly call this an ale because it tasted so much like a lager. An overall good and safe beer to have. However, I was expecting more than safe, but rather an unusual hint of pecan since I haven't had pecan-brewed beer before. Tasted like many other good lagers (not ales) I've had before.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a nice dark amber. The beer poured a small head that was gone pretty fast. The beer did have killer lacing though. A nice caramel smell oozed from the tumbler and when I took that first hit I was pleasantly surprised. Nice sweet hit but not overbearing, sorta like a handful of kracker jacks. I reall did not get much of a pecan taste, but that might be a good thing. I liked this one and would buy again.

A - This beer is rust colored with amber highlights. It is topped with two inches of creamy beige head.

S - I get earthy, nutty aromas as well as some cocoa.

T - I get toast, toffee, nuts, and cocoa.

M - Moderate and creamy

O - This is a damn tasty nut brown ale. I'd put it right up there with Sam Smith's.

This poured out as a much lighter color than I expected. It's a light brown, basically a deep orange. There is a decent looking tan head on top. The smell of the beer is roasted and has a subtle nuttiness. The taste of the beer is malty, very gentle bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel of the beer is smooth, lighter bodied and drinkable. Overall not a bad brew.
