3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle
Thanks go out to a generous trader for sending me a handful of Lazy Magnolia beers. This is the first one I have had the chance to try and overall it was not too bad. For an easy drinking brown ale it is just what is needed some nights.
Aroma / Appearance - The deep ruby red body filtered a minimal amount of light creating a dusky impression through the glass. Short lived in nature the murky white head give it another dimension. Roasted pecans and cinnamon reminded me of a state fairís confectionery stand. Fairly standard for the most part the nuttiness gives it a bit more depth.
Flavor / Palate - Nuttiness and hoppiness play against each other in a fluid mouthfeel that rinses across the palate. Fading fast it leaves remnants of sweetness on the throat that taste like a pecan pie with traces of chocolate chips. Very balanced this has been tweaked to almost perfection.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is like some sort of canned pecan pie filling that has gone a bit off. Tastes better than it smells, which isnít saying a lot. Fairly nutty finish.

A funny beer, sweet and fruity. Amber and clear. Has an off-white head, mostly lasting. Froma is fruity-sweet. Flavor light sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Creamy texture.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light brown with some orange hue. Has a small-medium sized head that does not stick around for very long. Roasted malts on the nose, and some caramel coming through. The nose of any good amber southern brew. Great flavor of nut and light fruit on the front with a finish of roasted nuts and coffee. A sweet amber taste with not much body. Good but not great.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2011 9/28/2009: Great subtle pecan flavor with a marvelous strong smell of pecan pie. Weak body is the only downside, like many nut browns. Sampled at the 2nd Annual Treasure Coast Beerfest in Ft. Pierce.
4/14/2011: Drank from the bottle, very sweet, malty brown ale, lots of pleasant nuttiness, although subtle, this is a great sessionable beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pint at Cooter Brownís. Pours a clear brown amber with a very quick eggshell head. Gentle aroma of pecan, hops, caramel, roasted malt. Flavor is the same and gets better as it warms. Minimal carbonation, light-to-medium body, and a little sticky late. Dry finish. My first Mississippi beer, and itís a good one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on draft. Poured into a pint glass and appeared a clear brown color. Slight aroma of the malt and nuts. The first sip I didnít get much, but I think the beer was just way too cold. After warming up the beer for about 15 minutes, was caramel malts with some slight hoppiness. As the beer continued to warm, some of the pecan nut taste started to appear.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Fresh Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium copper color with little to no head - almost looks like tea. Aroma of strong fresh iced tea with some sweet nutty accents. flavor has a nice sweetness to it with the pecan nuttiness figuring in prominently, with some roasty notes in the back end. Medium thick mouthfeel - refreshing. Add another state to the mix - think Iím down to missing six now - Wyoming, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and Iowa.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Biscuity, toasted aroma. Pecans become prominent when you actually dip your nose into the foam, as I accidentally did. Has a pecan danish caste when youíve norked up a big whack of foam - heh. Medium dark brown, clear brew, worthless label, pedestrian bottle. Dry. Absolutely dry. Lightly astringent, toasted, biscuit/nut flavors, a little grassy. Tangy and acidic. Grassy finish, medium mouth. Overall, itís a decent pint, but nothing spectacular. It is rare to get a brew from Mississippi, though. Fresh Market.
