BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company
Mississippi, United States

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.

Pours a dark amber
Smells like an apothecary shop
Taste weakly like a brown ale. Really weird, no notes of pecans at all.
Mouthfeel is thin.

Picked this up out of curiosity. Wont buy again.

Nice beer. Not great, but I'd bring it to a party for something different from every other beer there. Nice nutty color and flavors.

Appearance: Rich dark red color, light cap that quickly goes away.

Aroma: Caramel malt, toffee, little apparent hops. I closed my eyes trying to get a whif of some pecan in there but didn't find that specific scent.

Taste: Very good, mildly rich in a caramely, toffeeish way. Honeyish, seemingly sweet without being cloyingly sweet, nice in an almost non beer way. Hops are present in the background but never assert themselves.

Texture: Medium full without being chewy. Good balance of the flavors presented.

Overall: Not a bad try at whatever they were trying for. To me it's more of a British mild without the freshness of a proper cask ale. It tastes good to our resident Guiness fan and to visitors who really don't drink much beer. The worst I can say is it probably won't appeal to a dedicated beer drinker except as a novelty. The best I can say is I don't think it's flavor will offend anyone and is much better than these hard root beers currently on the market.

If Budweiser made a brown ale this is what it would taste like. The look, smell, taste, and mouthfeel are absolutely lifeless. This is water with a touch of a brown added. How this scores in the 80's is beyond me. Over half the bottle went down my drain.

Faint nutty aroma. Dark Brown Pour. good flavor, but the peripherals bring this beer down.
Grapefruit, Pecan, Celery. But not enough pecan.

Disappointed

LAZY MAGNOLIA SOUTHERN PECAN BROWN 3/3/16

The last of the four new brews from my latest beer club shipment. We don't get this Mississippi brewery's products distributed in my state.

a; Clear reddish copper with a pillowy two inch thick white head which receded to thin surface foam and a little spotty lacing.

s; Buttery

t: Caramel malt up front with some hop bite. Sweet finish.

m: Smooth medium with good body and carbonation tingle.

o: A pleasant, easy-drinking brown, perhaps slightly light for the style, and any pecan tinge escaped this drinker.
