Brewed by:
Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company
Mississippi, United States

Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

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.

12 oz single bottle purchased from LD's Beer Run in Jackson MS.

Rusty red copper color with 1/2 finger of grey head in the nonic pint.

Basic brown ale grain aromas with hints of cinnamon and metal.

Flavor is also your basic brown ale. Hints of cocoa, with faint nuttiness from the pecan.

Feel makes this beer. Lots of carbonation with a nice stickiness and slightly drying finish.

Overall pretty good. Won't be sad if I leave without a six pack though.

L- Nice looking beer. Straight two fingered head with a clearest brown hued body. Low carb it seems.
S- Some pecan is present, I will give it that. Other than that, there's some caramelized malt. Honesty not much other than that.
T-There's a bit of cracker/pretzel finish to every sip which is nice, there is also some slight sweetness and a bit more prominent bitterness. If searched for, there is some roasty-ness. Overall the flavor is pretty toned down, there isn't much toasty-ness I prefer in brown ales.
F- Pretty bubbly. Pretty light.
O- An okay wack at the style. To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of brown ales, but when they're done properly, they can be a delight to drink. This is just an okay beer. And a mediocre wack at the style.

Picked this up down in Dixie when I was on the road back in March. Never had a beer from the Magnolia State before so it was appropriate that the first one I had from there would be from a brewery with this name! While not a clear-cut winner, there was enough to enjoy about this as it was nutty, easygoing, and light on the alcohol. At the end of the day, there wasn't much more that one could ask for!

Not a bad pour to this as the beer was mahogany hued with a nice clarity and plenty of foamy head to top it off. Not a lot of lacing left behind as there were just a few soapy spots on the inside of my pint glass. Lots of pecans, nuts, and caramel in the soft, muted nose as they were a bit stronger in the taste. Roasted and nutty, this tasted a bit like Frangelico as there were hints of hazelnut and almonds in here as well. Cloying and bready, this was full though the liquid was quite thin and soapy on the palate. Not a lot of carbonation here and as a few others have stated on here, this seemed a bit like an Amber Ale as much as an English Brown Ale.

Quite light in potency, this was a textbook session ale if there ever was one. Not a bad brew for a warm day such as this, but the flavors could have been toned up a bit. Lazy Magnolia would be an appropriate way to describe who brewed, this as well as the liquid itself! Glad I gave this a go...

Just completely mediocre in every way. Looks amber/brown. Smell copper and malt. No discernible flavors besides malt and maybe a slight touch of pecan. Light feel in the mouth but drinks kinda heavy. Will be giving the rest of this 6er away

12 oz. bottle poured into a nonic pint.

Clear and amber-brown with one finger of tan, airy head leaving just a bit of lace.
Nose is a little weak but features cola-like caramel, bread malt and some nutty aromas.
On the low side of medium bodied wth mild carbonation. Very smooth.
Easy drinking Brown, would be better if the pecan character was more robust.

Not good. Good amber color but you don't really get much from the smell which is usually a bad sign. A very thin weak brown ale. You can taste the pecans but that's about it. A weak brown and a weak beer all around.

Look: Dark amber, creamy light brown head
Smell: Typical of a brown ale: brown sugar, caramel, roasted malt.
Taste: Here's where the pecans come in with a nice nutty profile which complements the regular brown ale flavors. For being the namesake ingredient, the pecans are surprisingly not particularly prominent.
Feel: medium-light body, low carbonation.
Overall: The pecans offer an interesting addition to an otherwise fine and standard representation of the style.

Was really hoping for a strong pecan flavor but it's just not there. Beer pours a deep amber color. The smell is malts and vanilla. The flavor is slightly roasted malts and some caramel. The beer is smooth. Overall just ok.

Got it at Blind Pelican, NOLA, 25/XII/17
No pecan taste was discernible. Some roasted malt taste that reminded me of a brown ale. Other than that, nothing special at all.

No date notches on the bottle label. Pours a beautiful clear amber with a massive deep ruby tint. Outstanding head volume and lacing, very good retention.

Typical nose for a brown ale. It is slightly sweet with a hint of caramel. It has a nutty aspect but the aroma isn't yelling pecans - it is undetermined. No hop presence. Overall, the aroma is very good.

Light body that is very similar to water in texture, just slightly more smooth. The carbonation / body balance is quite outstanding. The middle presents a nice burst of effervescence that is finally bubbled, prickly and tickles the tongue. The finish kicks it up a notch providing a rollicking finale.

The flavor profile is good. It is very well balanced, intensity is very good (it delivers flavor) but lacks complexity and depth. While tasty, it is somewhat of a bland 2 trick pony. Nothing exciting here. It consists of a light nut flavor over a slightly sweet base. Pecans and caramel aren't really discernible. Very little bitterness is present and no hop flavor. The finish is a slow fade.

This beer pours an amber ruby color with a one finger, creamy, light tan head. Retention is great as there is a half finger cap that sticks around for almost the entire beer and there are webs of lacing that eventually slide back down the glass into the beer leaving only spots behind.

The smell is caramel, brown sugar and nuts. Subtle, but also rich.

Taste is the same with an added bit of grassy hops to round it out. Flavor is not over the top, but very well balanced and enjoyable.

Feel is light and slightly thin. Lacking a bit of carbonation too. Very smooth and easy drinking though.

Overall this is a very good beer. Solid, enjoyable and certainly sessionable. I could see myself throwing back a sixer on a cool fall Sunday and watching some football.
