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.

Bottle 

 Appearance: Redish brown 

 Aroma: Some malt, very faint nut 

 Taste: Slightly sweet 

 Palate: Light body, somewhat flat. Has a slightly sweet finish 

 Overall: I don't pick up the pecans at all, and it ends up being a fairly non-descript sweetish brown ale.

Poured into a Florida Beer Co. tapered glass. Bottleneck says Best By: 10/31/13

A- Pours a light brown color with a 1/4 inch head that didn't even last long enough for me to see what color it was since it immediately fizzled away to absolutely nothing. Obviously no lacing either. Pathetic.

S- Smells sweet and toasty with faint milk chocolate and a bit of nuttiness. Also has that malted milk ball aroma.

T- Some more of that nuttiness and faint chocolate that soon fades to a watery finish. One-dimensional, borderline bland. Easy to drink though since the alcohol's so low.

M- Thin and, once again, watery with low carbonation and a body that should be fuller.

O- While it's not necessarily an unpleasant beer, it's just not worth drinking when there are so many better options out there.

Purchased from the Total Wine store in Pembroke Pines, FL. Pours a nice dark brown chestnut color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of sweet pecans and caramel and the taste is also of sugar coated pecans. A very malt forward brew here. Overall, not a bad offering from Lazy Magnolia.

Nice brown pecan color. Very clear. Can see my fingers on the backside of glass through the beer.

Off white head. Head and lace dissipate quickly.

No hops taste to speak of. Very little carbonation.

Bland smell and taste. Almost like a stale coke. Lite beer is better than this.

Can't see myself ever drinking this again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

a: dark dark amber and caramel, almost to the point of being purple/ruby red. initially a large 3 finger rocky off white head - but it fades quickly and sounds like the carbonation you get on a soda

s: tons of malt and dough right away. caramel, plums, cherry, and raisins. there is a nice mellow nuttiness as well

t: sweet and nutty for sure. slightly metallic. tons of caramel with a hint of dark fruits. there is some pecan-like flavor here which lingers a bit. some cherry in here as well as. slightly grassy/grainy.

m: its a lighter mouthfeel, but there is a lot of carbonation, and feels silky behind the carbonation

o: to be honest, i think its good not great. this is a really sweet beer, so if you're not into sweet beers stay away. sweet malt and carbonation dominate this beer. i think i'd like it a little more if the mouthfeel was a little less carbonated. not bad though, an alright pub beer

Smells tanenish sour but not much of anything.

Taste is cloying malt with a honey sweet finish. This is what I suppose a killians mixed with a seriously stale Sam Adams would taste like.

For only 4.3abv it has some heat and a decent mouthfeel but that's about it. You'd be better served with a different choice for the Same or less in terms of price. Think I'd even prefer a shiner over this(that's how slightly above average this is).

Head leaves like a kid who soils his pants during first period.

Newcastle n shiner aren't great, but they taste better than this to me. Glad I didn't purchase this.

I know my score is low here, but this reminds me of the well-water at some of my friends houses in the country when I was younger, or what the Fratelli's were serving the "Goonies" at the abandoned restaurant. Dislike it to the point I might turn down another free one. Overrated here.

There's a degree of originality in the sweetness and oilyness, but it's a bit uneventful/flat for me, and I just don't care for the taste.
