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.

I don't like pecans, so initially, I was a bit hesitant but this beer is really good. It's almost dessert-like. Also, the couple that started the brewery are the perfect combination for this business: one is an electric engineer and the other is a chemical engineer!

Appearance- Pours a chestnut brown with a finger of creamy beige head.

Smell- Pecans, roasted malts, hint of dark fruits, caramel.

Taste- Roasted pecans and malts, touch of caramel sweetness and dark fruits. Definitely an English brown ale (sweeter and maltier).

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall - For my first pecan infused beer, Lazy Magnolia delivers the right roasted nut and malt flavour. Very enjoyable beer with all the right elements.

A - Pours a Dark copper color with a very nice 2 finger tan head. The head does disapate rather quickly and there is no lacing. This beer is crystal clear!

S - Not much aroma. Sweet malts with a slight nutiness too it.

T - Tastes caramel malts. Also, slight hint of pecan. Pretty one dimensional. Not much flavor

M - A very lighy beer. Almost watery. Not much body.

O - An ok beer. Its not bad, just nothing special. I was really looking foward to trying this beer but was dissappointed. On a positive note, one could definately put back seera lof these in one session
