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 clear brown with no head at all... not sure what’s up with that. Aroma is sweet malts and pecans. Taste is oxidated, with some dry pecans and hop bitterness. This bottle may have been a dud, but this is not a particularly bad beer. Kind of boring, like brown ales tend to be.

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.

Malty brew that is generally low on aromas and flavors. Fair bit of body that turns thin and watery on the finish. Unsatisfying.

Nice deep brown-ish color with a off white head. Nutty and fruity aroma. Medium body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Toffee, malty and some dried fruits in the flavor. Decent.

35,5cl bottle shared by Cunningham, thanks a lot! Pours clear amber with a modest, off-white head. Sweet, caramelly and mild malty with notes of dried fruits, and sugar. Too sweet for ny liking, but still fairly drinkable. Fair enough.

I was worried this was going to taste like it had a bunch of pecan flavored syrup poured in it but it thankfully does not. It is still not exactly a great beer but at least it does not taste like some kind of awful Starbucks coffee beverage. It’s amber brown in color, maybe slightly cloudy w/ a small but long-lived head. This beer has a pretty solid malt character w/o being all kinds of sticky and sweet so that’s good but then it has just a slight metallic edge to it and, really, who wants that. Still, I didn’t mind this stuff and could drink a couple if I felt like it. The only nutty character I got out of it seemed more like it was from oxidation than actual roasted nuts but I don’t know the first thing about anything.

tfredvik (1368) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2015
Clear copper body with a small, eggnog-coloured, long-lived head. Malty and very sweet aroma of wort, nuts and pale malts. Moderate aroma that follow the sweet aroma, with additional sweet caramel and sweet fruits. Mid-bodied and smooth on the palate. Moderate sweet taste with some bitterness in the finish. Almost ok-ish.
