Beer of the Week: Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan Brown Ale

Raw Data:  Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan Brown Ale.  Brewed in Kiln, MS, USA. 12 oz bottle purchased at Kroger outside Knoxville, TN.

Pour is thin, and amber – the color of sweet tea, with an unremarkable head.  The aroma is full of maple, nuts, and caramel.  The taste isn’t nearly as sweet as the smell suggests.  It definitely shows its English Brown character in that regard.  The pecan really stands out among the other elements, which are a little too subtle.  The feel is just north of watery, and the finish is fairly clean.  Not a lot of lingering on the tongue, save the faintest hop bite.  There’s an odd, almost Belgian-like flourish of sweetness and alcohol at the end cut with a strange sourness.  This is enjoyable, but not as much as when on tap.
