Pours hazy caramel color with thin tan head. Smells like pecan pie; brown sugar and pecans. Toasted malts, nuts and molasses flavors. Pretty chewy mouthfeel for a brown ale. Medium body with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that vanishes quickly. The nose is quite sweet smelling with brown sugar, husky grains, and a nice light toasted nutty quality. The flavor is sweet as well, it does kinda remind me of pecan pie actually. Brown sugar and toasted nuts with a pie crust like maltiness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, pretty heavy for a Brown Ale, with nice light fizzy carbonation. Overall a pretty nice effort with a lot of flavor. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2009
Bottle from Cavie. Faint pecan aroma. Pecan flavor, but also malts and a little spice. Kind of watery. Cavie (4718) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Bottle courtesy of brentfeesh. Clear red color. Aroma has just a hint of nuts, obviously pecan. Also has some sweet malts on the nose. Tastes of caramelized malts with a second wave of dry nuts. For what it is, this is quite refreshing. Finish is a little dry and bitter but not in a bad way. TheDutchman (19) - Louisiana, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Poured from a bottle it has a nice pecan malt aroma. Clear reddish amber color with decent head. Tastes of pecans and brown sugar. Very smooth no bitterness. I really enjoyed this.

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 fair’s 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.
The aroma is like some sort of canned pecan pie filling that has gone a bit off. Tastes better than it smells, which isn’t saying a lot. Fairly nutty finish. BuckeyeBoy (7669) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 7, 2009
2009 GABF Taster Pours out a brown with almost no head. Aroma of rich malts and some light nuts. Taste some sweet malt and a roasted nut flavor.
