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.

Pours to a carbonated dark mahogany body with a coating creamy khaki head. The aroma is slightly soapy hops, pecans, and brown malts. The flavor is actually quite good. Deep caramelized brown malts, nuts (but not specifically a pecan), and a nice malt profile. Actually tastes really good. The palate is creamy and medium bodied. Very nicely textured. Minus the aroma, this one’s a winner.

20090521 12oz bottle from Fresh Market, Huntsville, AL. Attractive coppery brown color, medium sized beige head lasts. Aroma is pretty standard brown ale, definitely some nuts in there but I couldn’t pick out pecans. Flavor is much more nutty then the aroma would indicate, also some light mocha and a nice driness to finish. A pleasant surprise, so glad it’s not diacetyl which was my fear going in.

Headbanger (3472) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2009
12oz bottle 5/21/09 (Courtesy of garmonbozia)-Pours a reddish brown with a small tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Nuts, caramel, and roasted malt come out in the nose. Flavor of malt, sweetness, caramel, and some faint pecans. This light bodied brew is not bad but I was expecting the pecans to be much more pronounced but still a nice tasting brew.

BeerBunker (763) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2009
12oz bottle via trade. Pours copper with a small tan head, that turns into a ring of lacing rather quick. Aroma is of nuts, brown sugar, malt, and caramel. Taste of is burnt pecans, malt, brown sugar, and caramel. Has the most faint of hops in the flavor. Lingering nutty malt flavor. Mouthfeel is light, almost watery. Eh, nothing spectacular.

Itzjerm (1542) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2009
This does not have the burnt flavor of alot of brown ales. It is very smooth and drinkable. It is slightly sweet, but not very noticable. Drinks best in a sniffer glass. Does have an acidic carbonated tinge.

Narnad (1485) - 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 (304) - 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 (4995) - 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.
