Southern PecanSouthern Pecan

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.

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.

Pours a brilliant amber with a foamy khaki head that quickly dissipates to nothing.

A sharp, fruity/sour/metallic character dominates initially, giving way to toasted nuts and a hint of chocolate. Floral hops are subtle.

Flavor reveals more nutty dominance throughout. Underpinnings of floral hops and yeast esters add intrigue. There's a sharp bite that is somewhat offputting, but fades in the dry finish.

Never had a beer with a mouthfeel like this. It's fairly full, but it is creamy and rich, leaving an interesting and hard to describe sensation in the palate. The dry finish combines to be reminiscent of the experience after eating pecans.

The sharp/acidic bite is offputting, but great depth of nutty flavor. Truly a unique beer. A hint of diacetyl in the aftertaste drives the nutty presence home.

Poured into a tasting glass. Dark, reddish-brown, translucent with little head and no retention.

Smells of sweet english malt. Not much aroma however.

Taste is dominated by sweet english malt with a little metallic taste in the finish which may be from the pecan. But I certainly can not pick out the taste of pecan.

Mouthfeel is slick and oily with plenty of sticky from the sweetness.

Overall a reasonable brown ale, not my go-to style for sure, would like more (some) pecan in the taste.
