12 oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint. "Deep south pale ale" 12/05/09 printed on the label.

Thanks to PerzentRizen for this bottle!

A - A moderate pour released a gushing head. After overflowing everywhere, it stood at just above four fingers tall. The loose bubbles hung on for a long time leaving some loose lacing. The beer is a lightly hazy golden yellow with decent carbonation bubbles rising up. Great appearance after the overflow mishaps.

S - The aroma is a bit faint which could be due to the age. I'm picking up low pale malts with a lemon citrusy hop nose that's a bit floral in nature. It could stand to be stronger.

T - The flavor is a citrusy lemon hop crispness with a floral touch and a low pale malt backbone. The whole flavor is just a bit thin.

M - Thin feeling despite a medium-low body. A bit watery too. The finish is crisp from carbonation and a bit dry with very little in the way of bitterness.

D - I think I'd love to try this fresh but it's not terrible now. The body needs a little work and the aroma could be a bit stronger, but it's a great start. I could have a few of these while watching a movie.

12 oz bottle pours a clear, dark gold color with a fluffy white head. Nice retention, just a little lace.

Nose is an even split of crackery, biscuit maltiness and piney hops. A little bit of nutty yeast comes out as it warms.

Taste is pretty similar to the nose with lots of piney bitterness. The malt is fairly prevalent and very boorish. For a new beer, bring something to the table, not just a rehash of something that has been done hundreds of times by hundreds of breweries. This tastes like a Pale Ale that was born in the mid-90s with classic varietals of hops and malt. Its a decent Pale Ale, but it is so very boring and desperately needs more hop flavor. I wont buy it again, I find it to be just on the short side of average.

Poured a light caramel amber with a medium white head off the start, which quickly settled to a white ring around the glass.

Smelled of light piney hops, more of a malt presence on this one of pale malts

Taste is mostly a mix of piney twang in a wheat beer. There is a nice light wheat mouthfeel with a lot of bitterness and possibly some type of spice that gives a slight pepper taste.

Overall a light mouthfeel, a little too bitter / not as sweet as some other wheat pale ales out there, probably a little more bitter than some others I have had, could benefit from a few more aroma hops possibly.

Oh yeah. Mississippi tick thanks to Bobby.

A: The beer pours a golden amber color with a small white head.

S: Lightly hoppy on the aroma with a hop profile comprised mostly of citrus peel and grass. Otherwise, it's quite sweet with lots of toffee and bread malt aromas. Maybe just a light floral hop note.

T: Not the most pleasant flavor. It begins with stale bread, a touch of metal, and cardboard. A rather light floral hop note with sweet malt/bread and some fruity yeast esters. Hints of grass and a very mild bitterness.

M: Medium in body with medium to low carbonation.

O: My first Mississippi beer was a disappointing one. Decent aroma, but below average flavor.

Poured into a glass at Brent's Drugs, Jackson, MS during a play reading. Not bad for $2.

A: rust colored with a half finger head that dissipates pretty quick. Leaves a thin white circle of head around the glass. Light lacing.

S: Piney resins dominate with a pinch of malt thrown in.

T: Hops come through with a real flourish, then begin to diminish. Slightly bitter finish, but not overpowering. Crisp and clean. Floral and citrus notes from the dry hopping.

M: light to medium; low carbination.

O: Very smooth. Drinks more like an IPA. Hopheads will cheer for this one.

A- The color is a clear golden/brown. There is a lot of foamy head that is pretty thick. It sticks to the glass and after my first drink was mostly foam, I had to wait for it to die down, but a substantial head lasts pretty much the entire drink. The drink is carbonated a little more than average as well.
S- The pine smell is very heavy in this beer. They advertise it as a deepwoods smelling beer and that is definitely true. A decent smelling beer.
T- This beer has some hops. The pine flavor is the most prevalant. There is very little malts and the taste is very consistent through the entire drinking. A steady but unique taste.
MF- Very crisp beer with little or no after taste. One of the smoother beers around.
D- Initially the beer is very easy to drink. It is not to filling but because the taste doesn't change at all I could see it getting boring. The person drinking with me said, "The more I drink this, the more it tastes like soap" so I'll take their word for it.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A. Pours a golden orange with a foamy three finger head that leaves some foamy residual islands. Lots of yeast chunks in suspension.

S. Citrus hops when it's cold - lemon peel and orange. The piney and earthy hops come out more as it warms.

T. A bit of malty sweetness that doesn't balance the robust hoppy bitterness. Hops are reflective of the nose, except that the citrus hops never make a meaningful showing on the tongue - earthy and piney hops dominate and pack quite a punch.

M. Medium body with high level of carbonation.

D. How did this get listed as APWA? Certainly the closest to a PA or IPA. An interesting beer, but not something I'll be seeking out in the future.

Lazy Magnolia Reb Ale from bottle into Pint Glass. Freshness date 04.08.10

(A)= Copper color, clear, minimal hazy yellow head (less than 1/8 inch)that disappated immediately.

(S)= Sweet, Bread Doughy

(T)= Crisp, Spicy, Metallic Copper Aftertaste

(M)= Smooth, Light, Decent carbonation

I enjoy this beer although it has a full taste, appealing color and aroma doesn't offend yet isn't impressive.
