Southern Gold is Lazy Magnolia's Golden Honey Ale. Brewed with locally produced honey, this light-bodied brew was designed specifically for the City of Hattiesburg, MS., the home of the University of Southern Mississippi. This refreshing beer is noted by its smooth character and gentle, sweet honey finish.

The beer is indeed golden, as promised. Atop the beer rests a small, off white head. The aroma offers sweet, fruity malts. The flavor is a bit underwhelming. Blonde ale character with some odd nail polish type weirdness. OK to try once, but not a repeat.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of honey. Taste is honey, bready, mild sweetness, very refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good summer beer.

Poured into a Florida Beer Co. tapered glass.

A- Pours a dark amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that doesn't retain at all before fizzing away to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and tiny blips of surface foam. Nearly no lacing.

S- Sweet cane sugar aroma and not much else.

T- Sweet corn flavor with no other discernable flavor besides maybe a bit of alcohol.

M- Watery and thin. Low carbonation and a medium body.

O- Wow. I thought it couldn't possibly be as bad as Indian Summer but it's actually worse.

Lazy Magnolia Southern Gold has a very thick, cream-colored head, a hazy, honey color, lots of bubbles, and a few stray tan chunks suspended about. There is a little bit of splotchy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is very low profile, but sweet, bready malt and a touch of honey are detected. Taste is of lightly-toasted malt, bread crust, and honey. I could not detect any bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Lazy Magnolia Southern Gold finishes semi-wet, easy drinking, and quite mild.

Thank you Mrs. Duffextracold

Not gold but clear amber colored. Thin head kept barely alive by constant plumes of bubbles from the bottom of my glass. Bread crust aroma. Smells “clean” for whatever that’s worth. Tastes toasted, slightly sweet with mild bitter bread crust in back. Gentle and balanced.

Pours from a 12 oz bottle into in a nonic.

A: Amber hue. Large bubbles of rising effervescence. Pours a 1 finger, tight, dense, foamy, white head. Settles slowly. Leaves a nice thick beer ring.

S: White bread, honey, and a little orange citrus.

T: Sourdough bread with a little honey, and some fresh tea leaf.

M: Light body. Full flavor. A little bitter finish. Has a bit of a shallow, over carbonated feel.

D: Session style.

Atmosphere is really nice. Dense, foamy head with a thick beer ring. Nose is bread with a little honey and citrus. Flavor is sourdough, with honey and tea. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.
