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 light brown with a small head and little retention or lacing. Roasted nut aroma with caramel and subtle dark fruit. Gentle sweet malts on the tongue, including some burnt charcoal, offset by a hint of hops bitterness. Thin, slightly watery mouthfeel, medium carbonation, and a lingering sweetness.

Got this as part of my microbrew of the month. Read how this beer was brewed and didnt expect too much pecan flavor after reading that they added the pecan to the grain. Brown ale looking pour, flavor is malts and nutty. The aftertaste is where you get the pecan.

12 oz. botttle- Pours reddish brown with a thin tan head and decent lacework, aroma is brown sugar and pecans. The flavor is a nice sweet brown ale with a pecan flavor in the aftertaste, I actually could have had more of a pecan flavor, but I guess they went for balance. Overall a good and interesting brew that I could drink any day

12 oz bottle from beer club: Poured a medium brown with an off white head, nose of molasses and roasted malts and a bit of pecans, flavor was sweet and smooth, nice roasted malt notes with a pleasant note of pecans in the finish. Did remind me of pecan pie, albeit with much less sugar. Very nice!

From bottle. Pours deep red amber with tiny white head. Just a bit of carbonation. Very smooth -- difficult at first to notice distinct flavors. Some sweet malts and a bit of tart flavor. Slight bitterness but surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Not my favorite style, but I like this one.

Great dark tan color, taste is secertly pecan with touches of almond, fig, and plumb. goes down sooo smooth and taste pretty good for an almost fruity beer. I like this as its easr drinking with a touch of flare you dont find many other places or in brews. 12oz from beer of the month club.

Finally, an interesting brew from yon Month Club, which Ive since dropped--this is indeed distinctive, at least according to its ingredients and origin. There is some balance between a salty hoppiness [not much nutty flavor tho, and if it werent on the label i couldnt pick out the pecans] and a malty sweetness. For that, its still definitely overrated and not worth seeking out on its own.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 From my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-brown with a small beige head that faded quickly but left good lacing. The aroma was sweet toasted nut, caramel and faint fruits - a bit light but very pleasant. The flavor was toasted caramel, sour pecan and light fruits. A sugary and woody undertone surrounded and the finish was long with sweet pecan and caramel. Surprisingly full bodied and smooth. The aroma and flavor elements in this one were subtle but quite remarkable. Very nice.

12 oz bottle pour from beer of the month club. pours clear reddish brown with a small shrinking tan head. no lacing. aroma is sweet malt with just a touch of earthiness. body is a weird mix of full and thin with light carbonation and lightly bitter aftertaste. I was really intrigued by this beer in anticipation of its flavor and was severly let down. I was hoping for some real nuttiness and found none. Flavor is so balanced and smooth that I cant really discern any particular tastes from the other.
