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.

A fairly mediocre beer. Pours a fairly decent clear amber color with a small white head. Head retention is average at best with little or no lacing. Aroma is light, some roasted malt and another smell that is probably dry, ground pecan. The aroma is not particularly interesting. Flavor is roasted malt and the ground pecan nut flavor. OK but not that impressive. Mouthfeel is light even for the style. My first beer from Mississippi, but that is all that is unique about it.

Thin and bland from beginning to end. I would never guess that this was pecan flavored if the label hadn't already told me it's supposed to be. Now it's impossible to shake the placebo effect, but really it's just a vague nut ale with some vanilla. Morphs into foam at the slightest movement, if you pour it right the whole thing will be head. Looked tasty, but basically nutty Pabst.

Lighter brown ale than expected. Notes of pecan are subtle. I'd like to see an imperial stout master the pecan flavor.

Poured into a tulip glass. It pours a pretty reddish-brown with a thin, milk-white head and lacing that disappeared very quickly. It smells like pecans and roasted malt. When sipped, there is an initial sweet caramel malt taste and a mild pecan aftertaste but not much else going on. It's relatively creamy and with an ABV of 4.5% it is very easy to drink. Overall, there simply is not much flavor.

L: loses head quickly, brown almost caramel
A: not much to go on
T: interesting pecan hint. Not too sweet, almost zero hops comes through.
M: too thin, almost water
I: I actually really like it. Much brighter and thinner than I expected for an English Brown Ale.
