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.

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.

SKCwillie (15) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - SEP 11, 2014
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.

Scipio (700) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2014
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.

Stampion (154) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 5, 2014
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

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle at home in CT. Pours clear, light red-brown with a flimsy cream head. Little in the way of aroma, just some light toast and apples. Light sweet flavor with low bitterness, some mellow bready malts, suggestions of caramel. Light bodied with average carbonation. Mild sweetness on the finish with more toast, some lightly toasted sugar, leafy bitterness...not much else. Highly simplistic beer.

hopmelt (186) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pours clear dark copper, slight thin head, little lacing. Aroma caramel, toasted bread, slight nuttiness, a bit of fruity esters. Taste toasted malt, nutty, caramel, slight earthy bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel thinnish body, medium low carbonation, sweet finish. Overall a bit complex, but flavors fairly "watered down" not enough pecan flavor to make it interesting, very drinkable though.

I really liked this one! Not all that impressive at first nose, but the taste with just a hint of pecan to make it different. Nice bready, malty and no hop bitterness---nice change from all the IPA’s flooding the market

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!

Aroma is malty. Herbaceous almost like a Christmas ale. Cinnamon. Basil. Rosemary. Looks fine. Tan head. Medium dark brown. Taste is solid. Malty. Those herbs come through. As does a little nuttiness. Almond. A little like... Acid throw up note? But not in a bad way. Palate is smooth and light. One of two brown ales to date that I actually like. Don’t think brown ales should even exist but this is a glimmer of hope. Malt is the driving force but there are enough subtle notes to keep it interesting. Should be good for noobs or experts.
