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.

Appears dark brown mahogany. Smells less malty a little nutty. Pecan flavors come through this medium carbed beer. Medium mouth Feel. I don’t get the bitter I’ve come to expect from nut beers. Solid 3

Pours a brilliant mahogany brown with a 1-inch tan head, that dissipates rather quickly, settling in at 1/16th inch. Caramel with hints of roasted nuts and restrained malt in the nose with an ever-so-slight sour note. Medium-light body with suggestions of cocoa and toasted bread. Very little hops. Expecting more pecan on the palate. Slight, pleasant lingering, with restrained, but balanced malt and hop notes. No Belgian lace. Nice brown ale, unfortunately, it is not as moreish as would be expected of a Brown Ale.

Aroma: I took a moment to smell a bag of raw pecans (not roasted, unfortunately) and could detect some light roasted pecan notes in the beer. Definitely more pecan personality than the sweet potato I could pick up on the Jeff Stout. Still, the sweet, bready malts prevailed; hops are not discernible to this drinker. For me, a very comforting, warm aroma. Appearance: A nice looking beer; pours a rusty reddish copper with slow carbonation supporting a thin, creamy ring of tan head. Flavor: Somewhat sweet, almost buttery up front (pleasantly so); there is an overall nuttiness going on, but it’s hard to tell if the malts or the pecans are responsible. Dries up decently toward the finish leaving some lingering (you guessed it) nut presence. Palate: Medium body, very creamy texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Rather simple, but very pleasing for me. Another LM beer I could drink and drink.

Ljusbrun med obefintlig vit skumkrona. Söt fyllig maltdoft med inslag av smörkola. Smaken är speciell. Tydliga sträva toner av nötskal samtidigt söt och lite bourbon karaktär. Inte jättegod men intressant.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a dark ruby to brown color with tan head. Aroma of nuts and caramel. Taste is sweet caramel and roasted malts with a nice balanced but slight overall bitterness. I do get some nutty notes but not much. Medium bodied and very sessionable. Overall a very good brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(bottle) clear bright reddish amber colour with a small tan head; aroma starts with noble hops, than bit of nuts; balanced flavour with long light bitter finish; I thought it would have more to the pecan character but as it is - it is just a hint

12oz bottle, thanks to Micah. I thought I had rated this before, but apparently I hadn’t. Sipped on half the bottle while eating some scrambled eggs before I opened up Ratebeer. Not a great pairing. The beer is too weak and thin to pair with food, it seems. Aroma on it’s own isn’t bad though. You get some of the pecan, which is pretty nice, some light chocolate, light pie crust type flavor. Light bit of spice. What’s there is very nice, it’s all just very light. I’d love a double version of this, something closer to 6%. Lighter body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Pretty easy-drinking, and pretty refreshing even, for a brown ale. Moderate sweet taste. Clear red color. Not that brown. Thin ring of khaki head, no lace really sticks. OK brown ale, in the end. It certainly grew on me. Very different though, don’t expect this to be anything like your typical full bodied heavy american craft brown. The light, crisp drinkability of this is actually a strength for this beer. I could imagine tolerating a cold one of these in 85F summer weather, where other brown ales would be out of the question. "Session brown"?

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent light coper with very light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of caramel malt and pecans. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A simple, easy drinker.

Bottle; poured a dark orange color with whitish head. Aroma of must, veggies, and nuts. Some sweet malt; caramel and nuttiness. A bit mild for the part.

Wonderful nuttiness in the nose. Beautiful golden amber color. If you like some real nuttiness in your brown ales, this one is for you! I could drink it all day.
