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.

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.

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!

I tried this beer at a beer festival and thought I would hate it, but it was the surprise winner of the night. The pecan flavor is subtle, but gives the beer an interesting complexity and freshness that was wonderful. I dont think this would be a great session beer to drink all night long, but on a hot summer day in the deep south of Florida the taste of nuts in my mouth is shockingly refreshing. Who would have guessed?

Pours an appetizing amber color in my glass with a thin head. Nose is somewhat weak with some bready aromas with faint nuttyness. Palate reveals the pecans for sure, with an incredibly smooth and highly drinkable brown ale complemented by pecan nuttiness. Its almost like a candy-beer, but not overly sweet - just incredibly drinkable.
