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.

Amber pour with a tan head. Aroma is caramel and some hops, but no pecan. Lightly sweet. Very light nutty flavor, mostly malt and caramel.

Kind of boring. No noticeable aroma. Decent light brown color. Taste was muted malt base with a hint of pecan. Palate was watered down.

Aroma is a pleasant mixture of caramel and toasted pecan, but definitely lacks strength. Appearance is a light brown, small light brown head. Taste, like aroma, is underwhelming. Nice toasty flavor and finish, but weaker than I’d like. Body is good, slightly thin. A little watery. Overall, I enjoyed this beer but wouldn’t be too fast to recommend it to a friend.

APPEARANCE- medium broen in color (you may say pecan). Pretty light off-white head. NOSE- Slight malty notes. Not too much else to it. FLAVOR- smooth, touch of malty sweetness. I may taste a bit of a nuttiness if I try hard. NOTES- tastes a lot like a traditional (not hopppy) brown. This gets extra points for having no discernable hop in this hop crazy world. If they’re in there for bittering, it’s a perfectly small amount.

Was really disappointed overall with this beer. I picked up a single to try anticipating at least a hint of pecans as it touts being brewed with whole roasted pecans. It was like every other craft brew I have ever tried, with one bad twist-a bad aftertaste.

Dark brown color. Has a pleasant mild aroma. Wonderful combination of pecans, walnuts, caramel, vanilla, butter, malt, and oak char.It has a hint of sweetness but its not over powering. Finishes clean and smooth. This was a wonderful beer, easy to drink but full of flavor.

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Malty brew that is generally low on aromas and flavors. Fair bit of body that turns thin and watery on the finish. Unsatisfying.
