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.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: off white head of less than 1" recedes quickly. Decent amount of lacing. Lovely brown color with noticeable carbonation bubbles streaming.
Aroma: toasted bread, roasted barley malt, a hint of hops, and a bit of the odor from the pecans Mouthfeel: light to medium and just slightly sticky. Finish is warming.
Flavor: mirrors the aroma. There is a bit more bitterness than I anticipated (not a strong hop presence, so I am wondering if what I am tasting comes from the pecans). The dominate flavor is a caramel, toffee, roasty malt but it is very well balanced with the hops and pecans evening out the taste.
Overall: A very nice session ale, and delicious on a pleasantly cool Fall day.

Had one of these 2 nights ago at O'Henry's in Metairie (New Orleans).

Light brown with tinges of red. Big foamy head (might be due to the frosted glass it was served in).

Aroma is mostly malts with hints of caramel and nuts.

Pretty tame flavour. Chewy malts with hints of nuts and some caramel.

A little watery for a brown ale, but not bad (again, could be due to the frosted glass it was served in).

Pretty decent beer. Nothing special, but worth a try.
