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.

Pours a brilliant clear amber colour with a whispy tan head that fades immediately. Muted nose of crystal malt, mild nuts, faint toffee and cereal grain. The flavour is mildly nutty mid-palate, but finishing with gentle malt sweetness and roasted pecan. The flavour is completely unoffensive and the roasted nut, cereal grain and sweet malt flavours blend nicely to create a quaffable session brew. The tingly, medium carbonation paired with the silky, medium body of this brewski makes it even more gulpable. Kind of boring, but nice.

I missed out on the pecan flavor to this beer, but I could definitely taste the nuttiness to it. Enjoyed trying this, but would probably pass on it next time - a great novelty brew.

12 oz bottle from brentfeesh - thanks Brent! Pretty pour - a clear, deep amber with a beige head. Sweet caramel nose, mild nuttiness. Mildly malty flavor, light nutty tone. Mildly bitter finish. Very drinkable.

My new favorite brown ale here. I’m not a super fan of the style but this one was really good. Looks beautiful. Dark warm brown with a nice fluffy head. Looks great when held up to the sunlight. Smells very sweet and nutty with a good maltiness to it as well. Great smooth taste. Different than other brown ales in that it doesn’t taste quite as malty or something. Very good. I called the brewery yesterday and they said that the beer would be available in Tn. Sometime this year. Yes!!!

I first tried this beer at the Magic City Brewfest, luckily it started showing up in stores shortly after. It’s got a great dark amber color. I didn’t get an exact pecan flavor but it’s definitely got a "different than nutt brown" taste to it.

Bottle… Crystal clear ruby ale with a small, creamy, beige head. Notes of pecans, cereal grains and light milk chocolate swirl together to establish a wonderful aroma. The flavor is of medium sweet brown malts and nuts. Adequately bittered for terrific balance. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with mild carbonation. Tactfully sweet, nutty finish. I could drink this beer all day! Thanks go out to dsnowden for breaking out the party pig!

Party pig. Courtesy dsnowden. Thanks Dan for bringing this all the way from Missssisssssippppppi!!!!! Pours a clear maroon amber, with a big, frothy, light tan head. Pretty looking. The smell is of toasted pecans, malts, a little caramel, and even a trace of pumpkin seeds as well. Quite nice. The flavor is of big caramel and vanilla, and the toasted pecans and pumpkin seeds certainly are noticeable as well. Really smooth flavors, easy to drink, tasty, great brew. Really no bitterness at all in the finish. This is my first experience with this brewery and I come away impressed. Thanks again Dan!

Cheers to dsnowden for binging the Party Pig!!! Caramelly and nutty in the aroma. Pours brown with a thin white head. Malty and caramelly, sweet malts and a little thin. Very refreshing brown though!
