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.

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.

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 (1873) - 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.

Not much in the nose. Faint caramel malt. Light bodied. Brown ale flavors, apple and pecan notes. Light chocolate, hint of coffee. Watery. Only saving grace is, it’s not overly sweet.

bartlebier (1723) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
(backlogged in abstinentia) 12oz bottle picked up at ABC, Tallahassee 09/2012. Very easy-drinking, nut-flavoured brown ale with a caramel edge, smoothish mf for such a light abv. None too sweet, obviously not provoding much depth, but the advertised flavours at the surface shine bright enough. A mellow welcome to the deeper South, easing us into the bourbon-barreled Big Easy.

fiercepanda (544) - Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2014
A clear reddish brown beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is caramel and nuts. The flavor is pure malt, not a lot of pecan coming through.

jstonerock24 (134) - Englewood, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2014
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.
