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.

Some buddies picked up a couple of bottles while on a road trip. Pours a light brownish red with a head that settles to a ring. Looks like cola. Nutty aroma with hints of sweetness. The flavor also has a little sweetness that is followed by a pleasant nutty aspect. Light, yet still somewhat flavorful. Pretty straightforward easy drinking brew.

A very tasty beer, something like Newcastle but a bit lighter. Very refreshing addition to a dinner at Guido’s in downtown Mobile.

Pours a clear reddish brown with a short lived fizzy beige head. Smell is nutty malt and not much else. Taste is metallic up front, followed by a thin nutty malt flavor. Easy drinking, but too thin, and not very flavorful. I didn’t find this to be a very good brown ale.

12oz bottle courtesy of trade with deepsouth. Pours a clear amber/brown with small head that dissipated fully and left no lacing. Aroma of pecans, and a bit winey. Taste of malt and pecans. Body was thin and a bit watery. Decently quenching. All in all, OK.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with GAManiac. Pours a clear dark reddish brown with a thin off-white head that disappeared after a couple of sips and left virtually no lace. Very light aroma of malt and nuts, which I am assuming are pecans. Its really too indistinct to tell for sure. Much more flavorful than the aroma suggests with some lightly sweet malt, a bit of brown sugar, and pecans. The pecans really add a richness to this beer in both the flavor and the texture. Very enjoyable. Another state...MS...Whoot!

Noogfest ’08. The body was depe brown. The aroma was pecans and caramel. The taste was strongly caramel with some pecans. Fairly nutty in the finish as you would expect.

Won this brew in a LIF thanks to Life is good 12 oz bottle poured into my beautiful lazy magnolia pint glass. It was wonderful amber brown topped of with a finger worth of tan head that left good lacing The aromas are fantastic on this brew. You get the nutty pecan, sweet malts and caramels along with some bread yeast so it smells like a warm pecan pie Flavors are great as well great nuttiness to it, excellent malt character sweetness but not overtly so. One of my favorite nut browns to come out of a bottle I would love to try it from the keg. A medium bodied brew with good carbonation This was my favorite brown from the bottle so far. Highly sessionable, if I had more than one that is. Very pleased with this one added it back on my wants list if that means anything
