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.

Light brown. A little sweet. Some nut flavor and a medium palate. It is a solid brown ale.

Bottle from GodOfThunder. Thanks, J, for haulin’ this down I-10 to bring me my first Mississippi rating! Pours a semi-thick and intense mahogany with auburn highlights. Lively body gives way to a nice, 1-finger high off-white head. Nice roasted nut nose with a hint of sweet pecan and a touch of baked rose. Flavor is a rush of roasted nut with the pecan flavor slowly emerging in the finish. The aforementioned nut never overpowers the beer but it does remain noticeable once the first few taste buds send the message of the flavor to the brain. Finishes with a slightly sweet, roasted pecan and nut medely on the tongue. Nice mouthfeel but a bit thin. Great brown ale that is as advertised, unlike Abita’s version.

12oz from Msante. Thanks for my first Mississippi. Pours brownish amber with a tan head. Nose is pecanny sweet and nice. Taste is alright but kinda thin. Ok overall.

This is possibly the best pecan beer on the market. I have had a few and none of them really get the nutty flavor into the beer. This is dark, sweet, malty and full of pecans. There is a slight cinnamon spice and strong lightly roasted malts. Pretty darn good, and easy drinking.

Graciously shared by GodOfThunder. Pours an auburn/red with an off-white ring of head around the edge of the glass. Mild sweet malt on the nose. Thin, malty, sweet with a some nutty character. Nothing too impressive, overall very muted.

Bottle shared by GodofThunder and his wife, apparently LOL. Pour was a nice golden brown. Aroma was of a praline! Flavor was sweet sugar, pralines and tons of vanilla. Dessert in my mouth. Super sweet and drinkable.

12 ounce bottle shared by cdumler at a tasting. Pours a nice clear ruby red color with a thin offwhite head. Head retention and lacing are poor. Pecans are notable present in the aroma with caramel and hops as well. Taste is pecan pie... sweet and earthy with pecan and brown sugar notes. There is a slight bitterness that seems like it comes from the nuts more than the hops. Medium bodied.

Bottle. Pours a ruddy brown with little head. Aromas are (oddly enough) very reminiscent of pecans and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet and nutty. Mouthfeel is very smooth and almost oily. For a very light and simple beer, this is pretty darn good. For a gimmick beer, it is very good.

Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective Porter tasting at Dogbricks on 12/4/08. Ran out of porters, so we moved on to whatever else was in the house. Pours a clear light brown with a tiny head. Nutty and malty aroma with a little hop. Flavor was malty and surprisingly tart without much nut character.
