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.

Fresh bottle. Pours almost black with white head. Aroma is pure nuttiness - earthy, mossy, savory. Taste is, again, nutty. The pecan is the star here but it does not shine as brightly as I would like. Not much of the caramel or sweeter malt character present to balance out the heavy earth tones from the nut. Light on the palate. I would try again just to see if this opens up with some air.

12oz bottle from Zinister. Pours coppery nut brown with a small foamy and creamy head, some creamy lacing, not much retention. Aroma is nutty malt (meal, cereal), sweaty yeast, caramel notes and trace hops. Medium acidity, mild bitterness, buttery and nutty malt, sweaty yeast with some light sweetness near the end. Light bodied and fizzy palate.

For me, this was somewhat of a watery beer with very little taste. What taste was there was pleasant. Maybe I just donít like malty beers. Pleasant beer that I would have again, but not a stand out in any way.

Bottle from Total Wine in Stuart. Pours a coppery brown whiskey color with a rapidly disappearing white head that leaves no lace. Aroma has sweet malts, fruits and nuts. Taste follows - sweet biscuity & caramel malt, some fruits and a bit of a nutty flavor. Lowly carbonated and medium bodied. Finishes more sweet than anything, and a bit short. Not a brown ale in almost anything it is, but not sure where else it would be put (APA?)

Pours a deep amber with a thin tan head that leaves decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is brown sugar, roasted malts, pecans, and raisins. Taste starts of slightly spicy, then fades into malty sweetness, dark fruits, roasted nuts, and brown sugar. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and slightly thin. This beer is very enjoyable, but lacks a wow factor which is hindering it from getting an even better score.

Drove all the way from northern Kentucky to Gatlinburg Tennessee to find beer from, drum roll, Mississippi. Returned to a hotel room where my wife and two kids are all napping. So I had to choose from the bathroom or balcony to enjoy this beer. I picked the bathroom. Nose is nutty. Neighbors are arguing with their young son. Caramel and grass/straw appear from sipping. Sweet by too much so. Small hop bitter finish. Light cloying. Easy to drink but Iíll give some of these away to those who are looking for a Mississippi tick. About to watch the UK/UofL game on my phone. Go cats!
