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.

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.

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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

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.
