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.

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Pours a transparent copper amber with a spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of toasty caramel and nutty pecans. Body starts with average fullness, lightly sweet toasty pale malts and effervescent carbonation before a thinner, watery, mildy nutty finish. An ok brown ale, but nothing special.

From a bottle. Pours a clear brown with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, and naturally, nutty. Thin mouthfeel with a very sweet flavor. The nut flavor is present, and it lingers in the aftertaste. An ok beer. Thanks to Dansting for the bottle.

Bottle courtesy of deepsouth! Pours clear brown with an off white head. Smells no different than any other nut brown ale. Its the typical light aromas of some hop and malt. Taste has a subtle malt flavor with litte nut flavors. Finish is smooth. Overall a nice brew to try.

Lothore (549) - California, USA - MAY 16, 2008
A- Pours a clear brown hue with little to no head. S- Smell is pecan, caramel, slight yeastiness. T- Taste is nutty, sweet, hints of hops in the back end. M- Medium viscosity, lots of carbonation. D- This is a great brown ale. Definitely a session beer. Not a lot of complexity but today at 102 degrees in Gilroy, it’s just what i’m looking for.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2008
12 oz brown bottle at a downtown Vicksburg watering hole. Clear deep brown with ruby highlights.Moderate off-white head with some persistence. Roast malts, caramel, and some nutty aromas. Malt assentuated flavor of caramel and roast malts with some nuttiness and some fruity yeast overtones. Enough hop bitterness to balance. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Slightly bitter finish. Very tasty brown ale with enough of the pecan character to show through.

Stine (1546) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2008
A deep red pour. Lively beige frothing about. Raisin, minerals, light pine, red fruit, and the lightest earthy nuttiness in the aroma; seems spritzy and cold rather than smooth and warm as a brown ought to compose itself. Sufficiently malty, it projects this spoiling synthetic metallic tone of a weak maple syrup. Digging beneath that unpleasantry reveals a very plain brown rice interior that slowly muscles out those initial impressions, with a little warmth. Flavor has more of this frontal complexity that seems to hollow out, but it bolsters itself more readily with a steadfast support of soft nuttiness, molasses, and brown sugar. The bittersweetness of pecans seems prevalent and fitting. Malts seem polished. Mid palate is a downhill struggle of these niceties tumbling into that same, brittle iron water blended with maple syrup suggestion that makes the aroma so unapproachable. Still, drinkability doesn’t suffer. Thin to medium bodied, round, smooth, and laid back; workable sessioning texture. Finishes sweetly, with some length on a smack of honey and bitter nut skins. Turns out to be somewhat amiable. Thanks Bill!

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Moderate brown (coca-cola) in color with a thin white head that fades quickly. Aromas were of caramel, citrus and pecan. In the mouth it is light, lacking depth and concentration for what looks and smells like it should be deeper. Quite drinkable but I wish there was more depth and power.

daknole (9055) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2008
bottle, thanks to ddepsouth for this one. beer poured a medium, clear brown wtih a fizzy fairly short lasting head. Aroma is fairly malty with some evidence of pecans. Flavor profile is malty and some decent hops balance this one out well. Pecan flavor is evident, but if no one told you what was in it you might have a hard time guessing. Carbonation is a tad high, but overall this is a very drinkable and fun beer. Thanks again deepsouth!!
