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.

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

12 oz bottle courtesy of Daknole. Pours a clear reddish brown with fading off white head. Light nose of nuts and malt. Flavor of pecan nuts, especially as the beer warms, as well as toasted malt, and a tiny amount of hop bitterness. Smooth nutty finish.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle from Brentfeesh. Thanks! Pours a very nice deep mahogany with red hues and a beige head. Very nice aroma of maple, caramelly malts, cookie dough, and nuts. Medium light bodied with a thin texture. Flavor of nuts, caramel, and tobacco with a hint of fruit. There is decent amount of residual sweetness. The pecans really come through on the finish when it’s right out of the fridge, but the astringency shows up as well. All cellar temp (which I prefer on this one), the finish is semi dry with flavors of husky grains with no astringency. Not too bad. A little more body would make this even better.

Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Finally an Ole Miss beer! And amber to brown apperance with a white head. I detect some of the pacens in the aroma but I also get some caramel and honey. The flavor is straight up pecan pie with some honey and molasses as well. Overall not great but an interesting beer anyway.

CaptainCougar (7132) - 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.
