It pours a rich amber color with a nice head that soon fades. Smell is of bread and honey. The taste is same a nice sweetness to it with no aftertaste. A really good offering from Lazy Magnolia.

I loved this beer. I did not have an after taste. I could taste the honey, but it was not an over bearing sweetness, kinda like a "just the right amount" taste.

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.

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.

I enjoyed this. A little sweet, but that's probably to expected with a honey beer.

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.
