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.

MiamiBarman (29) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2014
From bottle to glass Aroma-very malty, a little bit of maple syrup, a little bit less chocolate, dash of coffee and nuts Appearance-clear dark amber with a slowly dissipating head Taste-Medium sweetness on the tongue, almost no bitterness detected Palate-it’s pleasant and very easy to drink. Extremely smooth and pretty tasty. Hard for me to sense the pecans though! I’d drink again.

It poured an amber brown color with a small tan head. The aroma was of roasted nuts, maple, sugar, toffee, caramel and some chocolate. The taste was similar with a little lingering bitterness. It had a medium body, with a creamy texture and medium carbonation.

AdamT (154) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2014
12oz bottle from Total Wine-Greenville S.C. courtesy of Zizzybalubba. (Thanks G) Light brown hue, murky clarity with 1 finger thick off-white head. Very lively body particles. Heavy floral notes, light citrus hop, earthy, vanilla aromas. Strong malt and pecan shell up front, sweet finish (cake icing). More of a light fruit finish as it warms. Oily texture, soft carbonation.

NeoHippie2 (938) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Medium brown pour with an off white head. Aromas of caramel malts and pecans. Flavor is similar. Not bad but far from exceptional. It just needs more complexities to it. Taste is just too standard issue.

high_on_hops (589) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Pours a medium brown with a short, tan head. It has a somewhat faint, sweet aroma with a sweet malty flavor, a nutty backbone and a great pecan aftertaste over a smooth body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle, bottled March 14. So, why the fuck is this flat. Flat ass brown pour. Lightly Swedish fish with brown sugar. Its flat and sweet. Oh, I need a state tick.

rader58 (774) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 22, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours mahogany with red hues. Aroma of caramel, sugar daddy (candy), nuts. Flavor of caramel, bread, pecans, vanilla, brown sugar. A fairly sweet and bread brown ale. Sweet and nutty like a pecan sweet roll. Not bad flavors, but a bit too sweet for my liking.

chinchill (1713) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2014
12 oz bottle dated 3/11 served in pint glass (from 2011 notes). I couldn’t get much of a head on this one and it was gone almost before I took my first sip. A nice clear brown liquid but almost no head. Aroma: nutty aroma with toasted malt and hints of bourbon and hops. T - Starts too sweet but nice sweet/bitter balance in the finish. Pecan nuts appear mainly in the finish. O - a little bit different, otherwise not much to recommend.
