Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

This is an interesting ale. It pours nicely with a small head and moderate to low retention. True to its name it has a nutty malty flavor that is superb but has a slightly bitter aftertaste that mars the experience. Still, it's a standby and I will purchase it regularly.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Medium dark pour with a lively carbonation. One finger of off white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. Looks just like root beer.

Smell: Roasted nuts, caramel, chocolate.

Taste: The pecans are there but not overwhelming like I expected. Malts come through with caramel and the roasted pecans.

Feel: Carbonation Tastes fine but it looks and acts like a can of Coke or root beer.

Overall: It is exactly what I expected. A good nutty brown ale. Not exactly my preferred taste but good nonetheless.

Pours a clear light brownish dark coppery color with off-white head. Nuts, definitely pecans, toast, bread, and earthy notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with plenty of nuttiness, toast, and a slightly sweet malty note.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: Slightly reddish caramel color, tan head of large bubbles that vanished rather quickly
Smell: Strong enough to smell without having to stick your nose way in the glass... nutty, bready, malty, a bit earthy
Taste: A bit more of the bitter, but classic brown ale flavors. I couldn't tell you that this was specifically pecan, but the nuttiness is there.
Feel: Lively carbonation, a bit more than I'd want in a brown ale, but not bad either. Medium heavy body that suits the beer nicely.
Overall: Not a bad beer. I had a pie in my head, but it's more of just a nutty brown ale.

A quality brown nut ale by Lazy Magnolia brewery. In my opinion their best beer. I do not like dark ales but find this beer pleasant and very drinkable.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head a little bit of lacing. Smells of pecan, malt caramel and yeast, tastes nutty with malt and slight hops.

Nothing special, you can hardly taste the pecans. the body is almost spot on.

Taste Rating in Words: It's like going to pick pecans, you eat one and on the second one you realize you just ate a twig.
