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.

Aroma is a nice pecan, caramel. Flavor is light pecan with a mild nut. Aroma is much more entice than the flavor. The finish is light chocolate and nut. Overall this beer would be great if there was more body and more nutty flavor. The ABV needs bumped up about 2% and this would be a much better beer.

Light toasted aromas of nuts (pecan I guess) and caramel malt. Pours a light brown color with minimal head. Good flavors of sweet pecans but not overpoweringly so. Almost creamy mouthfeel and light as well. An easy drinker and pleasant brew.

On tap at Rock and Run 4-5-14. Pours a clear hazelnut brown color with a minimal off white head with decent lacing. Aroma has the nutty pecan presence as well as some caramel sweetness and some breadcrust. Taste is very similar to aroma with the the caramel sweetness followed by the nutty flavor and some bready malt along with a minimal hop bitterness. Finishes semi dry. Mouthfeel is watery with a light body and moderate carbonation. Very easy drinking and light for a brown ale. Decent enough.

c/o GreatDane1632. Thanks again Dane! Aroma - sweet, roasted nut, caramel, and toast quality Appearance - nice amber body color; the liquid is clear, with some a tiny amount of nucleation; the beige fills up about 1 1/2" and slowly fades into a thin layer of foam Taste - is a nice composite of caramel and nuttiness, the flavor is very close to an ESB of solid quality. Itís considered a Brown ale, but Iím not really picking up on that. Palate - the body is closer to thin than medium; the texture is a sort of thin syrupyness; the carbonation average; the finish leaves a nice sweet toasty nutty flavor

Dark brown in the glass, beige head. The beer smells smooth, nice malty. In the beginning it is smooth, malty, nutty. The mainpart is dry, letting the pecan-nuts with the hints of roasted malts develop its whole flavour. The aftertaste is malty dry, small hints of sweetness, nice bitter ending.
A nice Nutbrown Ale, full in flavour and not too sweet! --> 14/13/14/14

Opaque body the color of iced tea w/ off-white head. Nutty & dark malt nose. Sweet roasty pecan & molasses flavors. A nice Southern brew.

Appears dark brown mahogany. Smells less malty a little nutty. Pecan flavors come through this medium carbed beer. Medium mouth Feel. I donít get the bitter Iíve 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 itís 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.
