I don't like pecans, so initially, I was a bit hesitant but this beer is really good. It's almost dessert-like. Also, the couple that started the brewery are the perfect combination for this business: one is an electric engineer and the other is a chemical engineer!

This beer is light molasses color with a thin tan head and some lace. It has a wonderful aroma of spicy hop, brown sugar, light fruit. This is a deep, rich bouquet and it is very inviting.
Flavor is light and woody with good depth to the malt flavor. A light roasted flavor gently emerges toward the center and is boosted off the palate by a leathening malt sweetness mixed with a slight yeast bite. Herbal hops make a great finish, but leave a slightly soapy aftertaste.
I am unclear on weather pecan is actually an intended flavor element, ingredient, etc...I can't really taste any of that character and I am not too sorry really. Another well-known southern brewer has recently introduced a "pecan brown ale" that I find rather unpleasant, and I am thankful to be spared any artificial extract flavorings.
I wish I could rate this a little higher but there are definately some off-flavors here. Having said that, I like them, I think they play well together, and this makes for a very warm and homey take on the brown ale.

Thanks to barefootbrewer for this extra.
Poured a copper/amber with a small head on top. You can really smell the pecans in this one-it dominated the smell but there was some floral hop character. The taste matched the smell with the pecan dominating. There is a little bit of sweet malt and some bitterness on the swallow. Also the floral hop character came out as it warmed. The mouthfeel had a slickness to it that was reminded me of eating pecans and the oil that is left over. A little low on carbonation but not bad. Very sessionable. A solid brew and one that I think most would enjoy.

A - Soapy looking head that mostly faded quickly leaving behind a few large bubbles. Crystal clear, mahogany with ruby tones, and low to moderate carbonation.
S - Roasted and nutty with some darker caramel malt aroma.
T - Much like the smell, roasted malts, woody, nutty, and some darker caramel malt.
M - Very thin...too thin.
D - Refreshing, but in the sense that it is more of a nutty flavored water than a beer.

Picked this up when I was down in Mississippi. Pours a reddish brown with good clarity and a half inch of bubbly light tan foam on top of the brew. Aromas start out with smooth roasted malts alongside big nutty tones. Mild graininess underneath along with a touch of hops. Malty, crisp and clean the nuttiness is a nice twist.
First sip brings smooth, slightly roasted malts with a hint of caramel sweetness. Nutty flavors move in along with a slight oily slickness that plays well against the malts. Some fruit and mellow hops on the way down. I enjoy how the nutty flavor is not overpowering and works in well with the malty brew. Tasty brown ale.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth and a bit creamy even. Good carbonation makes for high drinkability here. A winner for a session brew in my book, I found myself drinking a lot of this when I was on vacation down south. If available this is one I would have stocked in the fridge.

Tried this one on tap at Lynch's Irish Pub while visiting Jacksonville.
A: Deep amber to brown with a light tan head that fades relatively quickly
S: Malty, maybe some caramel aromas coming through also
T: Nutty tones, especially pecan and almond, right away, very malty with little bitterness until the finish, goes down easy
M: light-to-medium bodied, medium carbonation
O: This was a very enjoyable beer to relax with on a warm Florida afternoon. I could have two or three of this beer without getting tired of it- it has just enough of a twist to make it different from your typical brown ale.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.
LOOK: Clear dark brassy color, ample lacing
SMELL: Nutty, dark honey, brown sugar, toasted grain, yeast, faint herbal hop
TASTE: Smooth, semi-creamy, medium body, sweet, caramel, nutty, toasted biscuits, faint spiciness, cocoa powder, brown sugar
Not half bad, a bit too sweet. Just because it has nuts in it does not mean the sweetness had to be amped up which I think actually takes away fromt he pecan flavor. Good to try once.

12 ounce bottle pours a clear, medium brown body with a small khaki head. Good retention and some patchy lacing.
Aroma is subtle. A hint of toffee and some spicy and floral hops.
Light medium body has an appropriate moderate carbonation.
Taste is malt driven. A hint of milk chocolate, faint nuttiness, and just enough spicy hop bitterness to balance. The pecans impart a candied nut flavor that works very well.
A very nice brown ale that drinks easily and quickly. The pecan adds a unique touch.

Had on tap served into a pint glass.
Appearance: caramel color, medium carbonation, 1/3 inch head, clear
Smell: pecans and toasted malt
Taste: pecans, toasted malt, some leather, and slight hops
Mouthfeel: sweet, especially at the end and a bitter backbone, medium carbonation, light bodied
Overall: Very English tasting. This one is good not great. I was actually hoping for a bit more nut here. I could have a couple but my third favorite of the Lazy Magnolia offerings I was able to try.

Picked up from piginapen in a trade.
Pours a medium brown color with a small tan head that quickly disappears. Smell is malty - a mix of malty sweetness and roasted malt. The flavor is malty, with some nutty flavor as well. A very drinkable beer that is a great example of a nut brown ale. Highly recommended.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass, had before on tap once in Florida. Thank You to shan8454 for the trades!
Appearance: Good lighter brown color with a very thin off white head, no lacing.
Smell: Malts, Nutty, and pecans. Some hops in the background.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium to light bodied. Taste of malts, some grassy notes, but overall a good amout of pecans and some hops, well balanced.
Overall: On of my southern favorites! Very happy to have gotten this on a trade to enjoy again.
