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.

Ernest (6649) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, nuts), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of hair spray and grape juice. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A pretty dirty, watery, thin, sourish rendition. Drain pour.

Dark amber pour with virtually no carbonation. Velvety smooth flavor & body with high drinkability. Its hard to put my finger on an exact flavor profile or say that this tastes like pecan although there is some nut in the flavor. The the main impression I get is smooth. Very nice.

hershiser2 (1356) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2015
$1.95 bottle from Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours clear brown with a frothy beige head. Smells of sweet malts and nuts. Taste is metallic, leaves, grasses... bitter metallic end.

ryecatcher (985) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle. Brownish pour, smallish head, malty nose, malty mouth, watery and really uninspired. First beer from LM or from MS for that matter... but the leadoff batter strikes out looking on three pitches.

M82 (393) - Kansas, USA - JAN 3, 2015
A mahogany body with amber highlights displays a wall of large carbonation beneath a frothy-smooth white head

Restrained intensity with subtle complexities of pecans and toasted characteristics, earthy, faintly floral notes, with subtle caramel, chocolate, and red fruit, which coalesce into nuances of Dr. Pepper on a cohesive light plus body with medium carbonation, faint creaminess, and very faint tact, which creates minimal residuals with a mineral quality balancing the delicate remnants of previously mentioned components, as this one builds an abstract sense of lightly polished wood stairs comes to mind

12oz bottle a couple weeks after KC roll-out served at 40º into Spiegelau Casual Beer glass

KamGoPro (151) - Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Peculiar pecan aroma! Sweet and light but nutty start. Not much there as far as forward taste. Pecan after taste that is odd and awesome

crossovert (9061) - Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2014
355ml bottle. Amber pour. Definite nut flavors with some fruits, caramel, but not super sweet. Decent brown ale.
