3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
whopping thanks to deepsouth(BA) for this extra in my magical case of goodies.
This is my second time drinking this wonderful brew. Being the only beer I’ve had from the Mississippi Brewery, I’m quiet impressed with the originality inparticular. A nice fluffy tan heads fades into a nice thin layer atop a wonderful looking amber/copper with a slow rising carbonation that is as much at ease as the south itself. Wow that is an absolutely awesome aroma of Pecans. Not just pecans but roasted pecans. A nice robust and hearty dark malt accompany the roasted Pecans on their way up and into my nostrils. Elegantly smooth with a nice roasted malt character with a huge pecan punch throughout. It is ridiculously nutty with those roasted pecans leading the charge! This beer has a nice mellow, relaxed light to medium bodied with a very clean aftertaste. This beer is easy to drink even on a hot [and as required by universal code of torture], humid and nasty day [in Boston]. Add this one to you list of things to try! I would tell you more about how good this beer is but unless you’ve had one, you wouldn’t get it. No really, it’s nothing personal, you really wouldn’t get it.

12 fl oz bottle, courtesy of Papsoe. Pours clear and golden orange with a slowly collapsing tan head. Roasted malty and slight metallic aroma. Mild spiced flavored with a nice caramelish base flavour and mild roasted note. Ends smooth and light spiced. Somewhat perfumed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Appearance: Pours a clear, brown body topped with a thin ring of whitish bubbles.
Smell: Aroma smelling of toasted nuts and caramel. Simple, but nice enough for a brown ale.
Taste: Nutty, caramel blend with a reasonable amount of malty sweetness. Generally drying throughout, even as a light bitterness sets in. Dry finish with a lingering nuttiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Mostly pleasant, pretty smooth, and generally tasty -- it’s an okay brown ale.
Update: Recently had a far better experience with Southern Pecan. A bottle packed with more flavor and, I dare say, more smiles.

GABF 2008. Clear copper bown. Sweet toffee with a subtle pleasant nutty accent, low bitterness. The roast pecan character is quite elegant, understated even. Very enjoyable in a quiet way.

Had to use the six pack cartgrige to mix a six pack and added a bottle. The people on the package bother me, pretty silly design. Lots of caramel in the nose. Flavors of chocolate coffee were pretty light. There was some raisin. Good drinking brown, better than castle.
