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.

Bottle. Poured a clear light brown-orange color. Smelled of husky grain, steeping barley, and dog food. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet. Graced by toffee, artificial sweetner, and husky grain flavors. Almost fit for a king.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Retorp. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of pecans, sweet caramel, and a hint of chocolate. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and slight nutty oily finish. Very good.

Bottle shared by robert at stateline, given to him by bert (sloth) thanks guys! Light brown in color. Aroma of light pecans, malt and a little caramel. Taste upfront was a nice malty backbone, nuts, with a nice touch of caramel and pecans in the taste. Texture was a little thin but still good. Overall this beer was pretty good, hats off to the brewers! Thanks robert and bert!

Thanks to BeerandBlues2 for hooking me up with this. Wow... intense nutty flavor. I can almost taste the pecans. Clean tasting, very easy to drink. Almost too easy. Beautiful dark amber in color. Nutty malty aroma. Practically the perfect beer.

FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear brown/amber, with a an off-white head that quickly disappears. No lacing. Aroma is a bit strong, heavy on the pecans, with a bit of sweet caramel/chocolate malts. Flavor is fairly similar, highly nutty, with dark chocolate malts. Palate is medium bodied, slightly slick, but finishes a bit watery. Not a bad beer, but the flavor and aroma seem manufactured. I’d probably like this a whole lot more if they toned it down just a bit. Low alcohol content however makes this a decent session ale.

pepsican (1445) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - SEP 14, 2008
caramel pour with a smll white head. Strong pecan and caramel aroma. Similar flavor, even more nuttiness, grains, anise, and a bit of fruitiness. Moderate sweet finish.

Love to support the locals. Can’t remember all the details - only had it on tap at City Grocery, Oxford, MS. Substantial beer. Some hops. Great color. Not exactly balanced flavors - but a good beer all around.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2008
A smooth but vigorous pour into my 25cl tulip glass forms a fat, three-finger thick, lightly browned, tan colored head. The beer is a deep red, almost plum color that shows a brilliantly clear, copper tinged, full red color when held up to the light. The aroma has a soft fruitiness to it up front that mixes in with an earthy nutty and toasted malt character. A touch of astringent, roasty grain notes are found towards the end of the aroma. The more I dig around in the aroma the more nutty notes I start to smell. I do like how the soft, berry like, fruitiness mixes with the nut character and malt notes in the aroma.

Served a little cold, about 40°F / 4.5°C and tastes sweet up front. A prickly carbonation provides a touch of pepper and a definite fizz to the texture. The finish has a lingering, light-medium fullness to it that sticks just a touch to the palate. The nuttiness is at first noticed as an oral-nasal effect in the middle, but becomes more distinct and flavored as the beer slips down my throat. The nuttiness has a toasty, slightly astringent (almost tannic in some ways) note to it. A fruitiness is noticeable in the taste as well, with touches of currants as well as some raisin like flavors. This is highly quaffable and I could definitely see myself drinking a few pints of this.

An interesting beer that has just enough character to keep me interested. By far the best beer I have had from Mississippi (ok it is the only one too, but it is still good).

12 oz bottle courtesy Beerandblues2. Pours a nice dark amber with a thin white head. Nice malty nutty aroma, not overpowering. Taste is smooth malt, nice roasty grains. Nice easy going brown ale.
