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.

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 (3810) - 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 40F / 4.5C 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.

sloth (2533) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Pours a small tan with fair retention and some spotty lace. Clear, amber orange colored brew. Nose is soft with pecan nuttiness, malts are lightly sweet, caramelly, grainy. Body is med/light, lightly oily on the palate, nice for some reason. Grainy, bready malts flavors are fairly dry, pleasently nutty with a light fruitiness and a hint of licorice. Lightly sweet, gently nutty finish. A nice sesion brew imho and would be a welcome drink in my house anytime. Surprisingly drinkable! Props to BeerandBlues2 for the pair of 12ozers! Thanks Brad!

Dark amber with a big, tight biege head. Malty sweet nose with hints of caramel and raw grain. Lively on the tongue. Lots of caramel and toffee sweetness with an almost peppery bight to it. Ill take the suggestion and say that there are both flavor aspects and an almost raw nut dustiness to this beer that could easily be attributed to pecans Good tasting and smooth.

Thanks to Dansting for this one. Pours a transparent brown with a small white head present. The nose is real nutty and malty. There is some pecan flavor and lots of malt sweetness. It leaves a bit of a funk aftertaste in your mouth.

355 ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby amber with a nice off-white head. Malt filled nose with a hint of nut. Medium body. Distinct malt profile with a nice roasted nutty character. Slight edge to rather quick finish. Subtle lingering malt sweetness.

6-22-08 bottle shared with lb4lb thanks to Brianj555
Color is a clear rich blood red brown with a thin little frothy head - looks very similar to blood with some lacing. Smell is nutty and malty. Flavor is nutty and strangely sweet - almost gritty. Taste is just a bit too offputting for me - that sweetness isn’t rich or enjoyable but instead seems out of place and just kinda kills it for me. Mouthfeel is quite chalky.
