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.

Thanks to Garmonbozia for this, pours attractive reddish brown with a thin tan head. Decent but sweet malty and nutty nose. Same in the flavor with a nutty finish.

Pours a medium brown color with a small tan head that quickly disappears. Smell is malty - a mix of malty sweetness and roasted malt. The flavor is malty, with some nutty flavor as well. A very drinkable beer that is a great example of a nut brown ale. Highly recommended.

I really like this and I am not a brown ale fan. 12 oz. bottle to dimpled mug. Pours reddish brown with medium head that lasts a short while with some spotty lacing. Initial impression is earthy malt with bread and yeast. A bitterish coffee and pecan flavor with a quick finish. If there is a weakness it is with the body, all that flavor and not enough body. I first had this at a bar in New Orleans, and am still intrigued with the flavor the pecans impart on this brew.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear brown with an orangeish hue with a creamy quickly collapsing light tan head. Nose is lightly roasted malt, caramel, and toasted nuts. Body is very thin with a somewhat watery mouth feel and fizzy carbonation. Flavor is semi sweet roasted malt, nuts, slightly acidic and metallic, big extract notes, and caramel. Finishes lightly nutty and lightly bitter. Not a horrible brown but boring.

Stellaaaa (260) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Pours a rich brown with a thin white head. It has an aroma of roasted nuts and roasted barley. It tastes of nutty, roasted barley with a hint of fruit in the aftertaste. It has an okay mouthfeel, but is perhaps a bit thin (something I’ve commonly found in brown ales). Not a bad beer, but not exceptional.

Extra courtesy of moejuck - thanks Joe. I do love me a good brown ale, and I think this qualifies. Not super-nutty, but evidence of that sweet pecan oily flavor is definitely there, minus the skins. A nice red malt flavor, milk and sugar, plus maybe a hint of oxidation. The flavor here was just a BIT thin - if it were just a bit more fortified and maybe a little spicier this would be one raging beer.

Bottle via trade thanks to PALMEJ1 on BeerAdvocate. Pours a clear medium amber-brown color with a nice off-white head. Aroma is malty and nutty with caramel, pecans, and maple syrup. Flavor is similarly malty and nutty. Starts off with some good caramel malt and maple syrup, then finishes with a sweet candied pecan flavor. Medium body with average carbonation. Very drinkable. Overall this is a nicely done beer, and my first from the state of Mississippi.
