UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 Had it from Pig, on tap, and in bottle. Itís a solid Brown Ale, though I think the flavor profile fits more in with amber ales. As with most Lazy Mag brews, head retention is weak, but itís the flavor that counts! Great amber color. Flavor is malty with slight hint of nuts but not sweet, I suspect the pecans hold the sweetness in check, as they can be quite bitter. Low hop rate. The finish of this beer is where it shines. It finishes very clean, little/no aftertaste. Is a unique taste, that should be tried by any beer enthusiast. Not the greatest beer, or even brown ale for that matter, but well put together and more than worth the purchase. Like most beer this one suffers when served real cold. More so than most beers the flavors of Southern Pecan really bloom as they warm. 1-08 Update Now available in 12 oz. bottles. Will trade with any and all for brews not available in MS, if intrested at all please email me firstname.lastname@example.org

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 Draught at Mellow Mushroom in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Ruddy-amber body with a moussy ivory-colored head. Fruity pale malt, caramel, and nut aromas. Flavor of mild crystal malt, pecans, and an impression of maple syrup. Medium sweet with low bitterness and a lightly chalky aspect. A decent nut brown ale with a nice regional signature. (49 out of 50 states rated, with elusive South Dakota remaining.)

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2007 Poured from a Party Pig (plastic mini-keg). Nice pecan malt aroma but also with a metallic aroma as well. Clear reddish amber color with large head (the party pigs give you a nice big head). Nice light pecan pie malt flavor - pecans, brown sugar/light molasses and pie crust. A bit light but it really works well with this beer - like a bite of pecan pie without the overwhelming sweetness. Really a spectacular beer - one of the most unique and best brown ales Iíve ever had.

Party Pig: Just spot on for a Brown Ale. Mild aroma of the pecan, brown sugar, and malt. Great session drinker, low bitterness and a touch sweet with a medium body and caramel afternote.

Pretty solid brew with a unique flavor. Got a mini-keg to carry out to the golf course. Nice, sweet, yet balanced flavor.

I never liked dark beers but I tried the Southern Pecan just to prove my friend that I donít like dark beers. I fell in love with it after the first sip and I havenít found a beer that I love as much since then. I am going to miss this beer when I leave Oxford and Mississippi!

Finally got over to the High Cotton Grill and had the Southern Pecan. This is a classic nut brown ale and nicely done. A bit of sweetness, moreso than say a Newcastle Brown Ale, but very nice anyway.

GABF 2006. Finally got my Mississippi beer! I zeroed in on this and Hawaiian beers specifically for eliminating hard to get states.Rebuyish brown body. Nose is nutty and sweet. From the multiple samples I had, I cannot discern pecans in the aroma, per se. Taste is pretty much spot on for a nut brown ale. Light caramel, sweet malts, nutty flavors soft earth tones. Body is light medium and a mild carbonation. Ends with creamy malts, nuts, light caramel and soft earthy hops. Not bad!
