Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 03-26-2005

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.

A mixed feeling for this English Nut Brown Ale, good or bad, depends. Popped this bottle open cold into a glass and gave it time to breathe. First taste I was expecting pecans, but was presented with an overly sweet caramel syrup that put me off, nevertheless this quickly fades away to a mild nutty taste and nice smooth finish. Overall I think this is a good specialty style Brown Ale that should be tried at least once.

A- crimson undertones. Body is mostly clear.True to style.

S-Not complex. Just not alot of pecan.light malt not constant. everytime ive had it .

T- I found the first few times to be much tastier. there was a form of sweetness that was almost like pie. Really attractive. I got some nice nuttiness and vanilla and cocoa. I was never really happy with it.

M-Quite light and bubbly. Body goes down fairly clean. Carbonation was one of the brightest points of the beer.

O/D-Liked it once, Either way, I was happy to try it. Consistency is key.

this beer seems pretty inconsistant. this is my third time to taste this beer, and I have to say it is probably the worst of the three times. I must preface that this was bottled 10 months ago, and although that may have been a part of why it didn't fare well (even with the others doing the tasting tonight), but it tastes more like a mild contamination. It seemed to have a metalic aftertaste, like the PH spiked. Please don't judge this beer by this review because I have enjoyed it in the past, but this batch was definitely not what Lazy Magnolia should be proud of.

Light brown color, which was lighter than expected. Very little head and poor retention. Seemed far too highly carbed. Mettalic finish which suggests some sort of contamination to me or a high pH kind of issue with the beer. Then I checked the bottle and it was dated December. Since it is October now this must be a distribution problem or some organization issue within the brewery itself as the store I purchased the beer from is less than a month old.

S: Nutty, some light caramel, toasted malt complementing some maltiness.

L: Fairly clear, amber, off-white head.

T: Candy-like sweetness, slightly malty and nutty, caramel as well. Medium low clean bitterness, some herbal tea hop flavor. Semi-sweet caramel malt in the finish.

M: Medium carbonation, medium bodied.

Solid beer, really enjoyed the nuttiness. Very enjoyable English brown ale.
