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.

Pours a gorgeous ruby brown color. Aroma is obviously nutty, but there is a maltiness coming on through. Flavor is nutty and slightly sweet. Good brew.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Clear and lightish. Surprisingly malty, with elements of sweet caramel, toffee and a blast of nuttiness. Hops were mild, but they did offer some hints of flowers plus a pinch of bitterness. Overall, flavors were OK, but they didnít have a lot of depth. And aromas were held in check in the background. Decent and drinkable, but not overly exciting.

This the second beer tatsed from The Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company at the Mellow Mushroom in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. The darker color like a brown ale was inviting but the sweetness overpowered the beer. I could not taste the pecans. I like a hoppery beer. I would not put this world class category.

Slightly disappointing. A keg of this costs upwards of $50. It was gone in one night of partying with friends. Friends loved it and I enjoyed it myself. I drank about 10 of them that night. I kept putting them in the freezer to get them colder though. To me this is a mark of a lower quality beer. It is good, donít get me wrong - for Alabama (but itís actually from Mississippi, the one state worse than Alabama!). But not a world class beer.

clear dark ruby red, fine beige head, streaks of drippy lace, sweet candy caramel malt aroma, sweet caramel malt flavor, touch of chocolate, sticky candy sweetness, light nutty character melds well with the caramel and chocolate, not the nutty character from years ago but still a nice brown ale

On tap at the Steam Room Grill in Jackson. Pours a clear amber color with a medium off white head. Has a faint hop and malt aroma. Flavor is slightly nutty and smokey. Easy to drink with a semi sweet finish.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2008 Love this stuff. Only bad thing about this beer is my wife is now drinking it, so thereís less for me. Not itís in bottles. Only problem is, itís hard to find because everyone is buying it.

This is one of my favorite beers. It has an excellent flavor and is not harsh at all. I recommend it to people who want to start trying darker beers.

Draft pour, sampled at the First ever Magic City Brew Fest. Copper color with a light off white head. Very clear. Minimal aroma though you do get some light sweetness and hints of nut. A bit more hop presence in the flavor than I expected. The sweetness is there but itís subdued and there is a nutty presence but itís not as forward as I expected. I certainly did not think Pecan. Creamy mouth feel. Exciting only because I can know off another state from the list.
