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.

Pours a clear dark amber color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is good, as is lacing. Nutty, malty aroma. Not very strong. Mild hoppiness. More full taste. Malty and nutty. Smooth. Medium bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation.

16oz pub glass. Small head, copper colored, with little lacing. Smells nutty good, light caramel. Tastes of light nut, caramel and that's about it. Very thin, with a good bit of carbonation, and a bit bitter at the end. Not bad, but very thin overall.

It pours a clear and light brown with a small head. The aroma is very lager-like, with some very mild notes of coffee and maple syrup. The taste is not as sweet as one might expect but it has a nice malt base with some syrup-like notes. Light body and barely any carbonation.

A great beer overall. This beer even more amazing if it had maple in it. Nice reddish brown color to it. Taste of roasted pecans. Smooth taste and just a great fall beer to have in general

Red-brown color, the reddish hue is surprising to me given the style. Sweet pecan aroma. Weak and watery, slight flavor of pecans. They got the flavor right but not the structure.

Nice warm brown color for a beer that says it is the first beer in the world made with whole roasted pecans. Doesn't have much aroma but a unique nutty flavor comes through. Got this one in a beer of the month package...Have't seen this brew anywhere in the Northeast...From Kiln, Miss. - hometown of Brett Farve...

Nice amber color with a slight haze. Light nut and cereal grain aroma. Cereal and corn bread palate with subtle nuts. Mildly toasted. Weaker flavor than expected. Light and moderate body. Fairly thin. A tad over carbonated. Not super impressed with this one but quite drinkable all the same.

This is an interesting ale. It pours nicely with a small head and moderate to low retention. True to its name it has a nutty malty flavor that is superb but has a slightly bitter aftertaste that mars the experience. Still, it's a standby and I will purchase it regularly.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Medium dark pour with a lively carbonation. One finger of off white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. Looks just like root beer.

Smell: Roasted nuts, caramel, chocolate.

Taste: The pecans are there but not overwhelming like I expected. Malts come through with caramel and the roasted pecans.

Feel: Carbonation Tastes fine but it looks and acts like a can of Coke or root beer.

Overall: It is exactly what I expected. A good nutty brown ale. Not exactly my preferred taste but good nonetheless.

Pours a clear light brownish dark coppery color with off-white head. Nuts, definitely pecans, toast, bread, and earthy notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with plenty of nuttiness, toast, and a slightly sweet malty note.
