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.

Good beer. Not excellent, but good.

Pros: Yummy smell of caramel and toast with a beautiful copper reddish-brown color and good flavor - noting caramel and stone fruit (apricot maybe?). Some nuttiness as advertised, but I'll discuss that further in the cons. Okay carbonation.

Cons: Almost no head whatsoever. The 1/4" head I had fizzled out in less time than it took to pour the beer into a glass. While it did have some nuttiness as I mentioned, I only tasted pecan until after it had warmed up in the glass. Even then, it was more of an after-taste at best. Definitely not as strong as I would expect from a beer that pushes the pecan flavor so strongly as a selling point.

Overall: It was good and paired well with salty tortilla chips. It's a good casual snack beer, but not much else.

On tap ar Closed for Business.

Appearance - Clear deep copper. No head. Just a few wisps and a thin collar.

Smell - Also not much of an aroma. Slight nuttiness. Otherwise I think I smell the dish soap used to clean the glass more than the beer.

Taste - Vast improvement. Much more nutty with a hint of caramel. Some vanilla. Clean finish.

Mouthfeel - Light body. Minimal bitterness. Like none, really.

Overall - Nutty flavors are the highlight. So much that it's the only flavor, really.
