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.

PartyFowle (297) - - APR 23, 2015
Draft. Cranberry-brown, dark yet very clear, with a cottony head of tan that recedes quickly. Aroma: subtle pecan and walnut, a little caramel, a dash of buttery vanilla. Mild caramel sweetness runs through the flavor, which is accented with very subtle nuttiness. Flavor is light and more like an amber ale than a brown. Medium-light body, mild CO2. Drinkable but a bit soft in flavor.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2015 Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. Smells of pecan, malt caramel and yeast, tastes nutty with malt and slight hops.

Ron (2876) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 20, 2015
On tap at Cooter Brown’s Tavern. This beer is very smooth compared to other nut ales there is no bitterness to it. It doesn’t smell like pecans but you do get a taste of it on the back end. Very good!

zach8270 (3777) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 1, 2015
(draft @ Huck Finn’s Cafe - New Orleans, LA) Brown pour with a thick tan head. Nutty and sweet caramel aroma. Mild flavor of sweet malts and a light hint of pecans. Pretty nice but would’ve been better with a bit more pecan flavor.

This beer is smooth and easy to drink with subtle notes of pecan shells. I bought this beer at a local Specs store by chance and I have gone back to buy 3 six packs since.

Aroma right off, to me, is something of an unknown. Malty and nutty. That’s about all...Appearance is dark copper color. Pours a pretty thick tan head, not much lacing....Taste, this is the one you’re interested in, at least I am. It’s pretty good. Roasted pecan, maybe pecan shell, maybe that papery thing between the pecan halves. Either way, there’s some pecan in there. There is some maltiness. The taste is pretty good....Palate is pretty smooth, drinkable, but not sessionable. I can’t really say why. I could drink a couple of these back to back, but not much more than that. Overall,it’s good, not great. I would buy it again, but more for the "Hey, look what I found!!" to share with friends, than the qualities the beer brings.

bigtaster (744) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2015
From bottle, pours a clear dark brown with red hues, large beige head that stays around. Nose is yeast, brown sugar, nuts. Medium body, sweet, soft carbonation, slightly oily. Long pecan finish, with more brown sugar. Exactly what I expected, enjoyable, one of the better browns I’ve had.
