Southern Pecan Nut Brown Ale
brewed by Lazy Magnolia Brewery in Kiln, Mississippi
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.
The Story of Southern Pecan Nut Brown Ale
Mark is the crazy, creative force behind Lazy Magnolia. He comes up with ideas
that often seem to have no chance of succeeding. One of those ideas was to make
a beer with pecans. Many attempts at nut-beers have resulted in failure due to
the high oil content. Mark was determined, so Leslie designed the recipe to work
around the problem of nut oil. Even so, she had very little faith in the
creation until they poured the first perfect pint. Southern Pecan has been a big
hit ever since.
Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance: Pours a crystal clear medium reddish amber in color with light
amounts of visible carbonation and faint orange highlights. The beer has a
finger tall foamy medium tan head that slowly reduces to a mottled thin film
covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the
edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
Aroma: Light to moderate aromas of nutty malts with just a touch of caramel
Taste: Light to moderate flavors of nutty and caramel malts with some lighter
notes of toasted pecan that become more pronounced as the beer warms up. Minimal
amounts of bitterness are present that lingers for a very short amount of time.
Mouthfeel: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of
Overall: Pretty easy to drink and an enjoyable nut brown ale. I like the
addition of the pecans as it is slightly different than the other nut brown ales
I have tried - I could easily drink a couple of these in a session.
