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.

Clear deep amber body with a vary small head. The aroma is mostly strong caramel malt, with some nuttiness. The flavor is quite different. There is a strong sweetness that doesn’t match the malt, and a tasty pecan flavor that lingers through the finish. Pretty well balanced and super tasty. Was not expecting myself to like this based on the name, but this stuff is great.

Bottle->nonic. Medium brown with small offwhite head. Aroma and taste are nutty malt. One dimensional. OK for what it is.

Ehhhh...not sure about this one. Slight nutty flavor in the background (I might just be imagining things) but otherwise nothing to really remember the next day.

Nutty aromas, pecan mostly, with soft earthy hop scents as well. Clear deep red-mahogany with a mostly fading off-white head. Some initial malt sweetness, berry flavors, mainly nutty, some hops to balance. Medium bodied.

"it’s hard to get a natural tasting (and smelling) nuttiness in a beer, but this one pulls it off pretty well. fairly rich (for a brown) malty profile with a nutty backbone, and a slightly sweet, slightly bitter finsih. not bad for the style, especially on a cool day."

Dark amber/ruby color; Light to medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of toasted malt, caramel/toffee, & some pecans; Flavor of sweet malt, caramel, light hops, and nut/pecans; A little thin - but decent.

Thin tan head with a light amber color. Smooth and not as bitter as I had expected. Mild but smooth with a light after taste of pecan that does not overwhelm. This beer exceeded my expectations.

Pours a dark and clear amber with a thinner, light beige head. A very muted aroma does have pecans, along with toast and caramel. The taste is like the aroma, but has a bit more intensity. It has more pecans and caramel, with some minor impressions of bread, toffee, and nuts. Aftertaste is is caramel and pecan, and while not very potent, it does stick with you. Light to medium in body, medium textured, with average carbonation. This one isn’t very memorable.

Pours a medium clear brown. The pecans aren't too strong, and play well with the sweetness. Nice, refreshing and different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
