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.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2008
From a 12 ounce bottle - Pours a beautiful clear deep orange/red with low carbonation, and below average lacing. Smells roasted pecans, heavy malts, along with strong alcohol notes. First sip is both bitter and sweet with a nice nutty presence. Fairly light bodied. Not too bad, not too 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.
