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.

Bottle shared by GodofThunder and his wife, apparently LOL. Pour was a nice golden brown. Aroma was of a praline! Flavor was sweet sugar, pralines and tons of vanilla. Dessert in my mouth. Super sweet and drinkable.

12 ounce bottle shared by cdumler at a tasting. Pours a nice clear ruby red color with a thin offwhite head. Head retention and lacing are poor. Pecans are notable present in the aroma with caramel and hops as well. Taste is pecan pie... sweet and earthy with pecan and brown sugar notes. There is a slight bitterness that seems like it comes from the nuts more than the hops. Medium bodied.

Bottle. Pours a ruddy brown with little head. Aromas are (oddly enough) very reminiscent of pecans and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet and nutty. Mouthfeel is very smooth and almost oily. For a very light and simple beer, this is pretty darn good. For a gimmick beer, it is very good.

Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective Porter tasting at Dogbricks on 12/4/08. Ran out of porters, so we moved on to whatever else was in the house. Pours a clear light brown with a tiny head. Nutty and malty aroma with a little hop. Flavor was malty and surprisingly tart without much nut character.

Draught. Nice dark, copper-colored beer. Decent head. Hard to pin down any specific flavors but, a good-tasting beer

Caramel color. Smell of malt,pecans, minor hops and caramel. Tastes the same but light. You can defiantly taste the pecans.

mwelsh13 (499) - Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2008
12 oz bottle courtesy of brentfreesh poured medium brown with an oily brownish head that fades quickly. Big nut aroma. Medium body with slight bitterness at the beginning and nice nut flavor at the end. Surpised when the aroma was big that the flavor was not. Nice surprise. Not bad just not my cup of tea.

Macro beer aroma. Very bland nose. Taste has mild nutty flavor. Thin mouthfeel. Not good.

Draft. Pours clear brown with some white head. Nose suggests that this will be a sweet drink. There is some nutty and toffee with some fruity berry esters. Yep, the flavor is pretty sweet. Again, kind of a mix of berries and nuts. Fuller body. balanced finish.

Dogbrick (9357) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2008
Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective Porter tasting on 12/4/08: The beer pours a clear orange-brown color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy and spotty lacing. Aroma of lightly roasted pecans and malt. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt and pecan, as well as a touch of fruit. The finish is short and lightly nutty. Slightly above average overall, and finally I have gotten to try a beer from Mississippi.
