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.

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 (5283) - 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.

Bottle. Poured a ruby color with a thin off-white head. Initial aroma had hints of metallic in it but clears out. Main flavor of malts and nut. Sweet flavor of caramel and pecans. Light body with a nutty aftertaste. Enjoyable.

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.

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.
