Brewed by:
Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company
Mississippi, United States

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.68%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Indian Summer is a light profile American-style wheat ale spiced with Orange Peel and Coriander. Our recipe uses a mix of wheat and pale barley. This beer is very lightly hopped to allow the spices to shine through. Clean fermenting yeast produce a very dry, crisp base to further accentuate the spices. The aroma has a distinct citrus note without being overly fruity.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with no head or lacing whatsoever. Not a good start.

There are some hints of light orange peel and coriander in the aroma but light is the key word here. Not very exciting at all.

The flavor continues the trend of light flavors with a bit of caramel from the malt along with more orange and a bit of a bready yeasty note. Mouthfeel is extremely watery and light with just the least bit of bitterness.

Overall, I am disappointed with this one. Everything about it is light and a bit boring.

This beer was vey unique to me. Had a flavor but more bitterness than the flavor. Wasn't bad at all tho I went to a local brew store in my home town where they said its a big favorite so Ihad to give it a try and was honestly impressed. Taste a little like a light beer I guess you could say. Very hard to really explain cause it was so different to me. Go try it
