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.

thanks to bockyhorsey for bringing this one... pours a dark brown shade of orangey/amber with a thin off white ring of foam. dried herbs and a grassy hop aroma mix with toffee and dry roasted nuts. the palate is lightly sweet and caramely with a faint nutty flavor and mild grassy notes on the finish. thereís not a whole lot going on with this one. medium body with soft carbonation.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2008 Sampled at the Hellbilly tasting. Thanks Bockeyhorsey! Pours a nice amber orange with a small tan head. Aroma of brown sugar and roasty nuts and malt. Flavor is similar, but the nuts didnít come through as much on the tongue. Sweet and easy drinking.
If beer and nuts donít mix, why do they make Beer Nuts?

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2008
Sampled via Bockyhorsey at the Hellbilliy tasting. THANK YOU!!! Screw "conventional wisdom" that "nuts and beer donít mix". This is a tasty beer!!! Burnt orange bordering blood-red (a theme of the night), this beer is pure Mississippi sweet tea...natural sugar and buttered-pecan. Yummy. Mild grassy notes reminiscent of the Great Plain states. Head to the storm cellar...a twister is a brewiní!!!

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2008
Sampled at the Hellbilly Phoenix tasting (4/13/08). Bottle courtesy of Bockyhorsey. Pours a clear ruby color with minimal white head. Nose is caramel malts, molasses and toasted nuts. Palate is much like it smells: caramel, brown sugar and a touch of spice. Liquid pecan pie? Not my favorite style, but a decent representation I suppose.

unclemattie (4248) - Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2008
12oz bottle. Perfect, Reddish-brown color, nice creamy tan head. Aroma of caramel and some nutty mealiness. Flavor is a sweet malt, buttery, caramel, and a distant oiliness of pecans. Mostly a nut flavor from the malts not so much of the pecans. Overall it is a very drinkable beer and very enjoyable. When in Mississippi this is the beer I will look for!

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAR 23, 2008
Bottle thanks to brentfeesh. Pours dark rust color with small beige head. The aroma is sweet caramel, light earthy notes. The flavor is sweet caramel mostly, with a little bit of a nut meat quality. There’s just a hint of a spicy hop tingle in the finish. Not particularly great, but an easy drink nonetheless.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Thanks to BrentFeesh. Clear Brown/red pour with very small faint white head. Aroma is slight caramel. Flavor is caramel with a hint of nuttiness. Thereís really not much pecan going on here with a dry chalky aftertaste. Again there is some nut flavor but really itís just straight bitter caramel. Thin bodie and lacking in carbonation. Nothing exciting about this one.

12oz bottle courtesy of brentfeesh. Sweet caramel and nutty aroma. Deep amber body with beige head. Flavor has a sweet malt backbone but also a nutty flavor along with a carbinated cola to it. Sweetness lingers on the palate. Thanks Brent for a new state and a good trade.
