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 courtesy of deepsouth, thanks man! Nice brown-red color, good head and lacing. Smells sweet and tastes nutty and sweet at the same time. This was far too easy to drink on a lazy Saturday afternoon. This was an interesting brown ale and I believe my first beer from Mississippi. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-22-2009 03:39:18

This poured a reddish brown color with an off white head. Aroma was sweet, nutty and a bit metalic. Flavor was sweet and malty, hints of nuts, not necisarily pecans, and a not so great metalic finish.

Thanks to Blue Lou for passing along this one! Pours a bright amber colour with a large tan head. Plenty of carbonation in this beer. Aroma is pleasent, noticeable pecan, toffee and general nuttiness throughout. Flavors are very pleasent. Not too rich but semi sweet and comfortable. For my first Miss beer, this was impressive.

Thanks to Tyanderso for sending this to be shared and Skyview for being the delivery guy. Brown color with a thin head. Very nutty aroma. Strong malty flavor. Very dry, but not hoppy. Definitely nutty, but I wouldn’t necessarily say pecan specifically.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Butters at the Barrios Nashville tasting. Poured a clear amber color with ruby red highlights and a one finger off white head. The aroma was nuts and caramel. The flavor was caramel and nuts, with a bitter finish. The palate was above average with a crisp mouthfeel, mild carbonation and a medium body.

Bottle at Barrios’ Impromptu Tasting to pop Smitty’s Surly after a couple dudes left. Thanks for the hookup on this beerhawk!. Clear amber brown with wispy offwhite head. Nose is sweet malty and nutty. Flavor is also nutty, and caramel, and sweet potatoes. Some cinamin. Easy for a session beer. Nice.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Courtesy GodOfThunder. Pours a clear, dark, chestnut-amber color with a small, foamy, cream colored head. Settling quickly to a wispy film, the froth leaves minimal, spotty lacing behind. The aroma is quite nutty, as advertised, with toasted pecans emerging from a nice malt base of caramel, brown sugar, and maple. A hint of earthy hoppiness is in there as well, lending balance to the nose. Flavors follow suit, caramel and brown sugar coated pecans working nicely, along with a dash of vanilla. There’s a bit of roast in there, which, combined with the mildly earthy hops, balances things out quite well. Medium bodied and smooth, but lightly syrupy. Finishes semi-dry. This is a tasty little session brown.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Sampled from 12-oz bottle that was shared by tytoanderso. Pours a semi-clear reddish amber brew with a lumpy off-white head that has some nice retention. Aroma of caramel malt, roasted nuts with pecan praline, flowery hops, and a hint of citrus zest. Taste is medium to full bodied, flavors of caramel malt, pecan praline, some citrus zest and a hint of honey. Finish is semi-sweet with a light caramel and pecan aftertaste that slowly disappears.

Bottle courtesy MrBunn. Pretty good actually..easy drinking beer for hot weather. Aroma is a little light, pouring amber/orange. Flavors of malt, caramel, nuts, and some citrus with a light hop note. Rather light on the palate and a bit crisp. Good beer.
