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 bottle, pours a clear dark brown with red hues, large beige head that stays around. Nose is yeast, brown sugar, nuts. Medium body, sweet, soft carbonation, slightly oily. Long pecan finish, with more brown sugar. Exactly what I expected, enjoyable, one of the better browns Iíve had.

(draft @ Huck Finnís Cafe - New Orleans, LA) Brown pour with a thick tan head. Nutty and sweet caramel aroma. Mild flavor of sweet malts and a light hint of pecans. Pretty nice but wouldíve been better with a bit more pecan flavor.

10 oz pour on draft at Beer Run. Clear amber with off-white head. Aromas of caramel, light maple, malt, pecans as it warms. Tastes of light toasty notes, malt, caramel. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

Aroma right off, to me, is something of an unknown. Malty and nutty. Thatís about all...Appearance is dark copper color. Pours a pretty thick tan head, not much lacing....Taste, this is the one youíre interested in, at least I am. Itís pretty good. Roasted pecan, maybe pecan shell, maybe that papery thing between the pecan halves. Either way, thereís some pecan in there. There is some maltiness. The taste is pretty good....Palate is pretty smooth, drinkable, but not sessionable. I canít really say why. I could drink a couple of these back to back, but not much more than that. Overall,itís good, not great. I would buy it again, but more for the "Hey, look what I found!!" to share with friends, than the qualities the beer brings.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2015 Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. Smells of pecan, malt caramel and yeast, tastes nutty with malt and slight hops.

Bottle. Aroma of caramel, nuts, and maple. Somewhat sweet nutty caramel taste. Fine brown ale.

CervezaCabeza (40) - Le Mans, FRANCE - MAR 5, 2015
Pours clear amber with a 2 finger quickly dissipating head. Weak lacing. Aroma is biscuits and slight pecan. Flavor is underwhelming. A little nutty, a little yeast, some plain bread. Very slight hop notes gives a tiny floral, spicy kick but it's hard to detect. Easy drinking and not bad overall.

Bottle at home from Steve N. Basically a mild brown ale with faint roasted pecan in the nose, middle, and finish. Very light bodied, watery palate. A bit more malt and sweetness would have brought out the pecans more. Lacks oomph. Almost no hop character.

Theydon_Bois (11145) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Keg at the Beer Sellar, Nashville, 15/02/15. Amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is light pecan, syrup, sweet, caramel, nutty. Taste comprises caramel, sweet, bread pudding, light spice. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation - overcooked, semi drying close. So so affair but definately the best beer Iíve rated from Mississippi at this point in time!
