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.

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.

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.

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.

2.95/5  rDev -7.5%

from notes:
A: gold in color with a decent white head. Moderate lacing left on the glass until the head went away
S: sweet with a touch of honey. A little bit of malt and generic hop aroma
T: Very bland and watery flavor with nothing really sticking out. Light malt flavor and a wisp of hop on the back. Lingering and inoffensive aftertaste
M: thin with heavy and prickly carbonation. as carbonated as soda.
D: very drinkable because it's like almost beer flavored carbonated water.

Overall: not much of anything going on to put this beer on par with other beers. It's another lackluster beer by Lazy Magnolia and the last from their main line for me to try. Oh well, beer nirvana awaits me in California.

This Lazy Magnolia offering is only available in Hattiesburg, MS, home of the University of Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles, hence the name. Pours a yellow/gold color with decent head that dissipated fairly quickly. Smell was somewhat faint, but malty. Taste was malty sweetness. It is light in body and nice for a hot Mississippi day.
