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.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2014 Bought this in a six pack and was very excited to try it. Wasn?t what I expected but wasn?t bad either. Pours mahogany brown with big off white head that is comparable to Dr pepper. Aroma is weak and nutty. Tastes good but nothing special. Thin in the mouth but not watery. Pretty good just not as good as I anticipated.

Brunt chestnut brown flavor with aroma nuts, caramel, and some roast. Nut flavor with caramel sweetness and a touch of roast bitterness.

There were so many beers I drank on this trip that I barely remember drinking. Goes to show what kind of trip it was!

Pours dark amber with a frothy head that does not last. Aroma is caramel and somewhat earthy. Taste is caramel malt up front with the pecan becoming more noticeable during the finish. Straightforward - there are no unexpected twists or turns here, good or bad. Reminds me of some of the nut brown ales I went through years ago in England. Body is overall just a touch too light for my liking. Its not watery, but a more assertive profile would raise the rating. Overall, nice.

Bottle from Old Chicago. Caramel colored and clear, slight head and medium bodied. Not a hint of pecan. Little aroma, sweet malt taste and slight hops bitterness at the end. Not all that great.

Funknmilla (740) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Trying this with a cold, soooooo. But with one nostril I detect a mild nutty aroma. Flavor is like a watered down brown. I only get a hint of pecan.

peponi (1591) - Hannover, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2016
Aroma: roasted caramel and malty, nuts. Appearance: clear amber color and thin white head. Taste: low herbal bitterness, pecan nuts, roasted caramel, roasted dark malts, dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: Rather average beer, should be more intensive.

WillemsUrenkel (1573) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2016
12 fl. oz. bottle for 3,29 Euro at Craft Beer Konto Hannover. Clear dark red brown with a small head. Malty on the nose, little bit hay and hop. Taste is malty, little bit toasted, little bit hop, little bit citrus, hints of some floweresque hop in the background. Medicore.

From the bottle at the Atlanta Airport. Brown pour with not much aroma. The flavor was not even pecan. Brown ale flavors which I dont even like. Eh

Amber-brownish beer with a malty aroma. Sweet round taste with nutty and caramelly hints. Funny beer, abv could have been a bit higher for my (after)taste
