Notes/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.

Pours a hazy mahogany brown with a thin light tan head. Malty aroma has a caramel note and a nutty hint. Mouth-filling nutty, malty, woody flavor has hints of caramel and horehound. Firm-bodied texture delivers a lively, sassy fizz to round out a satisfying beer.

12oz bottle, an extra in a trade from the south. This pours a nice auburn color, crystal clear, with a few fingers of off-white foam.

It smells malty in a worty way, very sweet and rich. I was looking for obvious pecan notes but couldn't find them in the aroma. They come through in the flavor though, along with lots of sugary sweetness. Actually this us a little TOO sweet for my tastes, it gets a little cloying.

OK carbonation and so forth. The main thing is that its sort of a sweet mess, I think one is more than enough.

Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan

Appearance: dark red-amber, medium head, and some lacing.

Smell: hops, grains, and a malt-nuttiness.

Taste: malti-nuttiness, slight hops, and a deep grain.

Mouthfeel: medium.

Overall:
This brew has a unique flavor. The pecan flavor is fairly strong and seems to consist of the pecan nut as well as the shell. This brew will not be for everyone.

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.

3.68/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Medium brown and very clear. The head is tan and diminishes quickly and leaves no lacing.

S - Smell is toasted malt and sweet caramel. Nuts are there in the background. No hops evident. Very clean and pleasant.

T - Somewhat grainy, likely from the roasted specialty grains or the pecans. Caramel sweetness at the back end. No hops evident.

M - A little thin. Some mouthcoating sweetness in the finish. A hint of hop-bitterness in the background.

D - Interesting beer with some complex flavors. Mouthfeel was a little thin for my liking, but a respectable variation on an English Brown.

3.63/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - A clear reddish brown color with a quickly fading head that leaves no lacing, some bubbles coming up from the bottom.

S - Can't get a lot out of the smell, but there is a bit of lightly toasted malt, caramel and pecan.

T - Similar to the smell, you get some toasted malt flavor and a bit of toffee/caramel up from and then it slowly transitions to a nice pecan flavor. I just wish there was more flavor though.

M - Light body with medium carbonation, kinda watery.

O - It just needs a bit more umph to it to be a great beer, but what is there is very good, it just needs more of what is there.

Serving type: on-tap
