3.6/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Slightly hazed, medium amber body with a thinnish creamy head. The aroma is less hoppy than what I remember at the brewery, but there is a nice maltiness there. The beer is soft-bodied, with a very light sweetness. The malt is bread like, one of the darker types (rye bread, duh). Very drinkable session beer and comes across very British like a bitter or British PA.

No longer made, at least currently. This was one of my favorite Lazy Magnolia beers when they first came on the scene. Light Amber color, great blend of hops and malt. Quite tastie. I enjoyed having this one on tap and out of the party pig. Clean finish with just a slight bit of hops. I miss this one but love what Lazy Magnolia is doing for beer in Mississippi.

Poured an orangey-amber color with white head that it did not retain for long. Had a unique taste that was hard to describe, I think it is rye and caramel malts. The beer is very smooth and drinkable, a good session beer. No hops bitterness in this one.

This beer poured cloudy amber with a head that persisted for about a minute and subsided. The smell was initially grainy but then faded to being almost imperceptible. The taste was a bit cereal/grain like and a bit sweet. The mouthfeel was slightly chewy with the carbonation pronounced. Overall, I found this to be a delightful brew.

I've had this several times before but this review is coming from a recently purchased party pig. The beer poured a nice amber color with an inch and a half off white head, which surprisingly left pretty decent lacing.

The smell seemed to change overtime...very pleasant earthy tones at first...which gave way to a slight non-repugnant sour smell...then towards the end smelled more of sweet malts with some citrus undertones.

The taste reminds me of some type of leaf I would sometimes chew on when I went on boy scout camping trips (can't remember the name of the plant)...not too sweet...and not too bitter (much less than you'd expect). It's in no way boring but very easy on the palate. Has an earthy aftertaste

It has just the right amount of carbonation...is smooth and refreshing...slightly chewy.

It's very easy to drink...great summertime ale...lends itself well to many types of cuisine. I've enjoyed it with Asian among others. I can't recall any other rye-style beers that I've had so it's hard for me to compare it properly to it's style, but regardless I still think it's a good beer.

3.85/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

appearance: The pour creates a white head and the beer is a medium amber color. I like the name of this brew.

smell: Nice pleasing aroma in that it is clean but not boring, with a noticeable malt sweetness offset be moderate floral hops. There is also a hint of sweet fruit, and light spiciness.

taste: Light malt sweetness and light hops..somewhat bready. There is a very slight citrus hint. Finish is dry with some lingering bitterness from the hops.

mouthfeel: well carbonated, medium light in body

The beer is light and clean on all fronts and very drinkable

Pours orange/amber, apparently low carbonation. The smell is a hint of yeast, some alcohol, malty. The taste has a dry, smooth finish with a nice bitterness right in the middle, yeasty taste with some malts. The finish is very dry, nice carbonation. Would try this beer again, thanks for the samply JoeyC.

Cloudy amber. Yeasty, hoppy, bitterness, malt and yeast finish with spice again. Nitro creaminess. Acidic palate. Bit of lace. Yeast at bottom of bottles. Medium mouthfeel. Unusual, Southern experiment. What's next for this brewery? Thanks JoeyC by way of Aracauna.

Amberjaque is amber in color with a nice, tan head which leaves good lacings. The aroma is of light malts, straight-foward but tasty. On my first couple of sips Amberjaque had a minor off-taste in the finish, once it warmed up to serving temperature those flavors rounded out. Taste is of sweet malts, not very full-flavored. The mouthfeel is very weak and really detracted from the brew. My expirience with this beer was decent, but I actually enjoyed Lazy Magnolia's lightest beer, the Par 3, more.
