I tasted this beer after a Deviant Dale's IPA, so this beer never stood a chance to begin with.

A - Looked okay. Decent head. Nothing too special.

S - Smells like a wet homeless bulldog who has been sitting in the sun for hours. I have smelled better things in porta-o-potties.

T - Like you actually licked that wet homeless bulldog who has been sitting in the sun for hours. Then you went into the port-o-potty and licked the seat. Someone should light the Lazy Magnolia brewery on fire for actually releasing this beer to the public.

M - The best feeling was when I spit it out.

Overall - Deep South? More like horrible in your mouth...not bad.

12oz. bottle poured into an imperial pint. No bottled date. Thanks to BeerFMAndy for the trade.

(A)- Pours a hazy copper color that produced so much white foam, I only got about a 1/3 of the actual beer from the bottle. Way overly carbonated.

(S)- Rank Pine Sol cleaner with mountains of lemon.

(T)- Same as the taste; rank lemon & lime cleaner.

(M)- Far too much carbonation. Way too bitter and cloying; might as well drink actual Pine Sol.

(D)- No thank you, although its definitely infected or over carbonated or the combination of the two. Could only take a few sips of what was left.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. There's a freshness date but it's not readable.

A- Pours a clean dark golden color with a 1/2 inch white head that doesn't retain long before rapidly diminishing to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and nearly no surface foam. Barely any lacing as there's just a broken ring left behind.

S- Smells very soapy, almost like chlorine.

T- Taste is very neutral like water with a tinge of malt and trace amounts of alcohol. There's some sort of hop bite happening but it's unlike anything I've tasted before as it is, like the rest of the flavor, a neutral bitterness void of any character.

M- Tingly with low carbonation and a light body.

O- Wow, it's almost like you'd have to try and get a beer to be this lifeless and flavorless. I'd actually rather drink a macro than this stuff. At least a macro has some carb to it.

Picked this up in a trade with PerzentRizen -- the trade was great, but this beer is a little on the rough side :) Review is from notes taken on 2/4/2010 and poured from the bottle to a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, light orange/coppery color and starts with a huge 3 finger head that is very foamy and slightly off-white; solid retention and the head leaves large, puffy and dry swaths of lacing as it slowly fadfes to a full and rocky skim that is about 1/2 finger deep still; as mentioned, body is a little hazy but still shows strong carbonation.

Smell: Piney and slightly grassy presence, but that's about it. Not much really coming out for the nose at all.

Taste: Not much flavor - just a bit of a bitter and metallic presence, and I can't really call it "flavor." Pretty bland.

Mouthfeel: Solid carbonation; body is a little thin and watery; moderate stick on the roof of the mouth from the hop resin.

Drinkability: Pretty low overall - I like pale ales but this one doesn't really bring much to the table. The utter lack of flavor makes this beer pretty much undesireable.

Orange/tan and clear, lots of bubbles, started with a big fizzy head but quickly dissipated to nothing, leaving no lace.

Smell isn't so impressive. A bit of cardboard accents wheat and grains with a little hoppiness.

Taste also isn't that impressive. Not as balanced as it should be, kinda dry hop/grain/malt/cardboard again, slightly soapy tasting.

Body is medium to light, and carbonation is high, drinks ok.

I think this one needs a little work. However, I'll certainly give it another chance if they tweak the recipe, or try others beers from this brewery. But do work on this one a bit, please.

12oz. bottle received as an extra in a recent trade with piginapen. Thanks again man!

Pours a dark golden orange color with pale golden yellow hues when held to a light source and a massive three finger frothy, pillowy white head that very, very slowly dissipates into a lasting cap and ring that leaves sporadic spots of chunky lacing.

Slightly earthy piny hop aroma with subtle citrus notes and a biscuit malt backbone. Pretty bland smelling.

Pretty carbonated up front leading into a crisp medium body that is very hops forward with a subtle malt backbone and bone dry finish. Very dry piney hops up front that linger throughout over a biscuit and graham cracker malt backbone that is kind of thinned out into a very long dry, bitter piny hop finish. Not very well balanced and kind of one dimensional.

Thanks to BeerFMAndy for tossing this one my way.

Poured into my pint glass the beer is mostly clear golden yellow. About one finger of stark white head recedes leaving a faint ring of lace.

The aroma is lightly hopped with a touch of citrus. A moderate amount of malt comes through as it warms.

The flavor is sharp and bitter. There's a touch of hops in there somewhere. It's just dry and musty tasting.

Light thin body. Lots of carbonation.

Overall a rather offensive wheat ale. Not something I would drink again.

thanks to beerindex for this in my the junk BIF

A: Pours a honey gold ale with excellent clarity and lies beneath a two finger, peanut head with good density. This falls over the coarse of a few minutes and leaves a thick sheet of the same. Sheety lacing. Nice.

S: Smells like buttered emesis. Some sweet feel to the mid point, but the most dominant thing to me is the reminiscence to emesis.

T: Medium floral over a malted body. Light malts with a slight metallic and woody flavor at the ends.

M: Medium body, medium to hi carb. Plenty slimy on the finish.

O: Not much different to me than their Indian Summer. Very average. As a pale ale, weak.

Brew was drank at the Lazy Magnolia Brew House in the Gulfport-Biloxi airport on-tap.

Appearance - A nice copper hue with a decent head, goes away swiftly. Good lacing on the glass, pretty transparent

Smell - Mild spices, a little biscuity, some light citrus notes. Not much to speak of, honestly.

Taste - The hop bitterness in this beer is pretty haphazard. It hits you up front and on the finish. There is vague references to floral and citrus flavors, but not much.

Mouthfeel - I like the crisp, clean, bitter finish! There is just a collision of flavors that don't transition smoothly.

Overall - This ain't a bad brew. I love pale ale, and they got the bitterness down, but not much else. If they invented the "Southern Pale Ale" style like they say, I think it'd be a good idea to work on the recipe a little to bring it more cohesion. Not too bad, nut had a lot better.

Reb Ale from Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company looks nice in my pint glass. Good carbonation here. Smell has some type of alcohol and slight malt odor. Unfortunately, the taste is exactly the same. Just alcohol, some malt, and bitterness present here. (I don't mean a good kind of hoppy bitterness either.) Not recommended.
