This does not have the burnt flavor of alot of brown ales. It is very smooth and drinkable. It is slightly sweet, but not very noticable. Drinks best in a sniffer glass. Does have an acidic carbonated tinge.

Pour a red brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head and low carbonation. Aroma is slightly nutty, light caramel and some sweet toasted malt tones. Flavor is sweet toasted maltiness at the start with a very light nuttiness in the middle with a caramel sweetness at the end. Pecan flavor doesn’t really show up as the dominate flavor and tends to taste like a simple brown ale. Density of the beer is moderate and does fit the style well. Overall not a bad beer but just not what it is advertised as on the label.

Poured with a very thin head that dissipated quickly yet it had a nice amber shade. Not a very big nose but there was a hint of caramel. Smooth entry that transitions smoothly to a sweet finish consisting of caramel, dates, vanilla and a pleasant, mild bitterness.

Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with some light sweet toffee notes. Taste is dominated by quite rich caramel malt notes with a nice malt presence with no discernable hops presence. I can’t say I really detected any pecans though kudos for trying something different.

Very straightforward. A nice brown ale that finishes the way it starts. Caramel, earthy flavors, and just enough darkness to make it taste like a much higher ABV than it is.

This is a local beer for me and the first time I tried this beer was off the tap at a local restaurant and I really enjoyed it. It left a sweet taste in my mouth after every drink I would drink this draft any chance I could. I have also bought it in the bottle and cant say that I really enjoyed it, it doesnt taste the same to me.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with almost no head at all. The aroma is a sweet malt with caramel and nuts. The taste is a toasted malt with caramel and pecans. Easy to drink a good brown ale from lazy magnolia.

Pretty good brew. Pours brown orange with a thin white head. Toasted nutty and caramel aromas. Very smooth drinking beer with a sweet pecan taste throughout. Would drink again.
