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.

2009 Tap. Interesting to say the least. Appears dark brown with little head to speak of. You can taste the difference between this beer and one traditionally brewed with malted barley. There is a dark, dry bitterness to the finish of this beer, though not unenjoyable, make it distinct. Expect a woody, nutty (not quite pecan-esque) flavor from this brew. Not good, but I donít see this one surviving long-term in the markets.

Bottle, pours a nice brown color. It has a nice sweet taste, with a touch of hops and pecan aftertaste. Nice balance and I was pleasantly surprised with this one being in Alabama and not wanting to drink Bud Light.

Draught. Poured a translucent mahogany body a thin white head. Fruity malt, pecan, maple syrup, vanilla, lemon grass aroma. Flavor was toasty sweet, some banana and dark fruits, lightly vinous, with some chocolate notes. Palate pleasantly full and not too carbonated.

bitbucket (2164) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy orange amber with a thin straw head. Sweet aroma of nuts, brown sugar, grass. Lightish body, watery texture and moderate carbonation. The taste isnít as sweet as the aroma, but there is caramel, and the pecans come out more. Thereís an almost vanilla-like quality with hints of grass and oranges on the finish. There isnít the Rogue-like avalanche of hazelnuts, but pecans add a pleasant changeup ot the standard brown ale taste.

RSRIZZO (1914) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2009
(Bottle courtesy of Headbanger) - Color is a deep amber with mellow carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is faint with a hint of malt showing. Taste is nutty and dry. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish comes in nutty with some sweet caramel showing up and a bit of a roasted taste. After taste is a bit more sweet with a candy like taste that somehow comes off clean. Overall its a nice Brown with good nut flavor.

Bottle thanks to MrBunn. Pours an expected nut brown with medium off-white head. Aroma is very nutty, sweet, hints of caramel, and malt. First half of 12oz bottle was very nice tasting very pleasant, nutty, with the right amount of sweetness. Second half was a bit difficult to finish. I think this is the perfect beer to share.
