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.

ThirstyBird (1564) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2014
Old review from 2009. Appears a clear reddish brown with a light tan head that falls to a skim/ring. Mild lacing. The aroma is subdued but pleasant. Malty, nutty and fruity. The taste is nutty, fruity, malty. Fairly rich. Quite sweet in the middle then nice mild hop aftertaste. Light/medium in body. A little slick. Active carbonation. This was a tasty brown ale. Easily drinkable and pleasant.

The pecan flavor was something I had never experienced in a beer before. Would be absolutely astounding with a good burger.

Appearance: dark, clear ruby-chestnut, with a quickly dissipating light tan head; no lacing, but some surprisingly syrupy legs for such a low abv beer. Aroma: strong scents of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted pecans, vanilla, and a hint of root beer. Taste: nutty and sweet, with lots of pecan, toffee, and brown sugar; undertones of wood, earth, leather, cola and chocolate. Finish: lingering sweet nuttiness, with a hint of earthy hops. Notes: Delicious nut-brown ale. Pecan notes are prominent. Palate is rich for a sub-5% abv, and the beer drinks bigger than it is.

Pours clear copper with low white head. Aroma of pecan, caramel and toffee. Taste is sweet, heavy with pecan and toffee again. Body is a bit too light, otherwise I’d have labeled this a pecan pie.

The color is a clear chestnut with a small off-white head, and the aroma blends toasty and caramel malts with pecans. The taste is slightly sweet, slightly sour, and a touch umami, and the palate has a medium-light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and a fairly abrupt finish.

HuskerTornado (31) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 12, 2014
12oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. Clear reddish brown in appearance, medium white head that dissipates quickly. In the nose, roasted malt, brown sugar, syrup, and nuts. Thin bodied with a sweet, nutty pecan flavor up front, pronounced roasted malt throughout, and slight bitterness on the finish. Overall, an easy drinking nut brown ale that is pretty average, nothing really outstanding, but a solid beer that is worth a try.

Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan is an average brown. Dark brown pour a decent white head. No aroma detected. Taste is even more disappointing with no pecan notes nor any of the other notes expected in a brown ale. With a name like Southern Pecan, you should be to taste the nuts!

jahshuwuh (385) - USA - JUL 11, 2014
A dark ruby color with two fingers of khaki head. Smells of nutty fruit cake, banana, cherry. Taste is light overall sweet with some nuttiness in the hop bitter, a little caramel and vanilla. Mild carbonation and slick mouthfeel. Easy drinking, the pecan flavors stick on the tongue, light caramel and fruit sweetness to round it out. Not overly flavorful, but drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark and rich brown. Hints of caramel. Not too heavy. Very drinkable. Has a very nutty taste. Candied almost. Surprisingly good. Wasn’t sure bout the pecans
