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.

With an aggressive pour this had a cap of dense brown foam that wafted slowly to a thin trace. The color was clean dark copper and missed the hearty brown.

The nose is a tinge stale with a roasted nut and grain.

This is funny because the nose seemed a bit stale but the taste is roasty, toasty, nutty and malty. The pecan flavor really comes through and the toasted grain easily accompanies it.

The feel is a bit thin, not overly pronounced, but suitable for the style.

I really enjoyed the flavor and I guess that's all that truly matters as the other parameters seemed weak.

I let this get past the best by date by about 2 months, I will try to give slack for any papery notes.

Appearance: No head, deep amber glass glows hazy when back lit.

Smell: Rich malty backbone, a bit malt extract in intensity gives an earthy burnt sugar sweetness.

Taste: Malt driven taste, sweet but mellows out nicely in the middle finding balance without any hop bitter flavors. There is a nutty almost smoke flavor that slowly comes through.

Mouthfeel: Has some fizz despite the lack of a head, The body goes from light to medium balance, just enough heft to counter a fairly watery texture.

Overall: A nice beer. Malty, not over the top nutty, and what is there comes through more as the meat of the nut rather than the shell. Would be nice for cooking, chicken braising.

Thanks to Illudium for the sample

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

LOOK: 2 fingers of fluffy off-white head, settled to a ring with minimal lacing. Clear brown almost iced tea color.

SMELL: light caramel malt, light roast, faint nuttiness, and faint wheat smell on the back end which I like, not a lot of discernable pecan to me

TASTE: light sweet nuttiness, light brown sugar, very faint hop, maybe a little hint of vanilla. Very pleasant and easy drinking.

FEEL: really the only thing holding it back for me is a thinnish mouthfeel. Carbonation is good, but I tend to prefer a bit more creaminess and viscosity in my brews.

OVERALL, I liked it, but not in my regular rotation. Wouldn't turn it down at all, great introduction beer.

I used to drink this when I lived in Jackson MS. and it was a very good beer, but now that I live in Houston and I've found that this beer does not travel well, it tastes a bit more on the bitter side.
This is a shame because I did really like this beer
