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.

12 oz. bottle from a BA BIF. Pours a clear deep copper brown color with a rapidly diminishing medium sized off white head. The aroma is mild to moderately sweet malt, slightly nutty, mild caramel and maple and lightly fruity. The flavor is is mildly sweet malt, caramel, lightly nutty with a slightly bitter finish. There were slight metallic notes, but nothing too distracting. Overall, not a bad brown, just nothing very special either.

Bottle bonus thanks to garmonbozia. Clear amber brown pour, little carbonation and a sightly sweet matly aroma. Flavor is pecan pie, malt, brown sugar and a little herbal on the finish. Not bad, pretty solid brown ale with a pecan twist.

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Thanks to Narnad for the bottle. Hazy, coppery-red in color with the biggest, frothiest tan head known to man. Head is partially diminishing down to a tan marshmallow fluff. Toffee nose, akin to peanut brittle, with some baking spices akin to nutmeg. Moderately sweet flavor up front turning mildly bitter. Finish is mildly sweet, quickly fading, and ends watery. Ive had several beers that claim to use pecans, but I have a rough time picking up on any flavors that scream "pecan" in any of them, this one included.

nearbeer (5088) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 21, 2010
12 oz, bb 05-11-10. Clear, ruby-brown with a creamy one-finger head that endures. Nose of caramel, toasted nut shell, and light bitter herb. Flavor is molasses-covered pecan, dark banana bread, and more toasted pecan shell. Light cocoa flavor also helps the bittering a bit. Medium body is smoothly carbonated, a bit sweet, but very drinkable. Probably the best 4% abv beer Ive ever had!
