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.

Had on draft. Poured into a pint glass and appeared a clear brown color. Slight aroma of the malt and nuts. The first sip I didn’t get much, but I think the beer was just way too cold. After warming up the beer for about 15 minutes, was caramel malts with some slight hoppiness. As the beer continued to warm, some of the pecan nut taste started to appear.

Pours dark amber with a frothy head that does not last. Aroma is caramel and somewhat earthy. Taste is caramel malt up front with the pecan becoming more noticeable during the finish. Straightforward - there are no unexpected twists or turns here, good or bad. Reminds me of some of the nut brown ales I went through years ago in England. Body is overall just a touch too light for my liking. It’s not watery, but a more assertive profile would raise the rating. Overall, nice.

Bottle from Old Chicago. Caramel colored and clear, slight head and medium bodied. Not a hint of pecan. Little aroma, sweet malt taste and slight hops bitterness at the end. Not all that great.

Trying this with a cold, soooooo. But with one nostril I detect a mild nutty aroma. Flavor is like a watered down brown. I only get a hint of pecan.

Aroma: roasted caramel and malty, nuts. Appearance: clear amber color and thin white head. Taste: low herbal bitterness, pecan nuts, roasted caramel, roasted dark malts, dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: Rather average beer, should be more intensive.

From the bottle at the Atlanta Airport. Brown pour with not much aroma. The flavor was not even pecan. Brown ale flavors which I don’t even like. Eh

Amber-brownish beer with a malty aroma. Sweet round taste with nutty and caramelly hints. Funny beer, abv could have been a bit higher for my (after)taste
