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.

Narnad (1472) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Pour a red brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head and low carbonation. Aroma is slightly nutty, light caramel and some sweet toasted malt tones. Flavor is sweet toasted maltiness at the start with a very light nuttiness in the middle with a caramel sweetness at the end. Pecan flavor doesn’t really show up as the dominate flavor and tends to taste like a simple brown ale. Density of the beer is moderate and does fit the style well. Overall not a bad beer but just not what it is advertised as on the label.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2010 Pours a light tan head with a light brown body that has ruby highlights. Smells of sweet malt, caramel, pecan, and vomit. Taste is pecan, sweet potato, and caramel.

Poobah (294) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - APR 4, 2009
Poured with a very thin head that dissipated quickly yet it had a nice amber shade. Not a very big nose but there was a hint of caramel. Smooth entry that transitions smoothly to a sweet finish consisting of caramel, dates, vanilla and a pleasant, mild bitterness.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with some light sweet toffee notes. Taste is dominated by quite rich caramel malt notes with a nice malt presence with no discernable hops presence. I can’t say I really detected any pecans though kudos for trying something different.

Very straightforward. A nice brown ale that finishes the way it starts. Caramel, earthy flavors, and just enough darkness to make it taste like a much higher ABV than it is.

This is a local beer for me and the first time I tried this beer was off the tap at a local restaurant and I really enjoyed it. It left a sweet taste in my mouth after every drink I would drink this draft any chance I could. I have also bought it in the bottle and cant say that I really enjoyed it, it doesnt taste the same to me.

djd07 (3896) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with almost no head at all. The aroma is a sweet malt with caramel and nuts. The taste is a toasted malt with caramel and pecans. Easy to drink a good brown ale from lazy magnolia.

Pretty good brew. Pours brown orange with a thin white head. Toasted nutty and caramel aromas. Very smooth drinking beer with a sweet pecan taste throughout. Would drink again.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 23, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours an amber color with a small khaki head. Nose of nuts, caramel, toasted. Initial taste begins with caramel, toasted moving into noticeable pecan. Pecan finishes in the flavor. Average palate duration. Good head retention. Body is light. Very drinkable.
