Deep South Pale Ale is Lazy Magnolia's Pale Ale, a crisp and clean beer with the perfect balance of hops and malt. Its body and clean finish are ideally suited for all seasons, and the brew is moderately hopped for a great aroma and impressive finish. Deep South Pale Ale doesn't fit into any category of Pale Ale, it's a style we made up!

A- A nice orange color with pretty good clarity. a billowy head though it disappears quickly. looks rather much like a lighter amber i would say.
s- smell is pretty subdued, but not too terribly so. smells present are toffee, bread, a wee bit of hops, maybe some like apple or pear, and then a strage smell, that has an artificial tendency to it. kinda strange.
t- taste has a strange tendency like the smell. it starts with that, has good hop character, finishes with some nice bread tones, but that strange beginning flavor just messes with me.
m- a good bit too thin. it doesn't really hold its own. i know its a pale wheat ale, but still...
d- all in all not a terrible beer, but there is just something off about the beer that doesn't do it.
not the best pale wheat ale or best of lazy magnolia but not a terrible beer. thumbs in the middle.

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.

I poured this beer into a tulip glass. In the initial pour I had about two fingers of foam. The coloring on this beer was auburn.

There was a light smell of pine from the top of this beer. You can also get mild nuttiness from the malt.

This beer tastes like a stock English Pale Ale. It was a little unexpected. The pine in the nose falls off in the taste of the Deep South. This is a really mild beer. You do get some funkiness on this beer.

This was an easy drinker, except for the funk and some unusual bitterness at play.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Many thanks to betsona for this bottle.

A- Pours a amber color..duh! One and a half finger semi-white head shows medium retention. Nice specks of lace all over the sides of the glass.

S- I get a stronger wheat base out of this with hints of citrus hops and some bitter ones thrown in there as well. There is a certain offness to this that I can't quite pick up on...like corn or something else. Light almost nutty malts in the ending of the aroma.

T- Light roasted malts in the front of the beer show off a light nutty flavor to them. The middle of the beer shows more of a wheat underbody which I could get into a little more than the front end. Ending goes back to a bigger malt with there being some stale bitter hops in the ending. Alcohol is not really there until it warms up which then becomes a little medicinal.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is a little light for the style. Roasted malts and hints of nut and whear are left on the palate. Aftertaste is stale alcohol, nutty malts, and hints of bitter hops. Flavors were a little underwhelming at times and not fully balanced. No off flavors were present. Light alcohol drying on the palate.

O- This was a interesting beer. Don't know what I fully think of it. Will the South rise again? Maybe....but not anytime soon in my glass. Well unless I get another bottle of it.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Dark golden hue. Pours a slight, foamy, white head. Settles quickly, leaving a sporadic blanket of foam. Substantial beer ring lacing.

S: Italian bread with a little basil, pine nuts, and pecan shells.

T: Pine, wood, and pecan shells.

M: Light, crisp, and hoppy; but hearty and full.

D: Sip and enjoy or pound relentlessly.

Atmosphere is good. Nice appearance including solid foamy head, and some solid lacing. Nose is hoppy, and spicy bread. Hoppy, woody, and full flavored. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

Thanks to piginapen for this one. Pale yellow with a massive white head. The aroma has a pleasant citrus aroma, more of a pale ale aroma than a wheat aroma. The beer is light and hoppy. The flavor is floral with citrus. It finishes crisp. It is medium bodied and goes down smooth. A nice hybrid beer. I think Lazy Magnolia really nailed this one.

Pours a crystal clear light straw yellow with very little head and lots of bubbles.

Not much hop aroma. Maybe a little spice. Mostly some sweet pilsner and wheat malts.

A crisp up front taste. A bit of a cracker malt and finishes slightly spicy with a hint of twang presumably from the wheat.

Crisp, but not watery and high carb level.

Quite pleasantly surprised after the unimpressive pour and aroma. Nothing special here, but something with a similar profile to a light lager, only a bit fuller bodied with more flavor. Would definitely see this as a good tailgating beer if more regularly available.

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.
