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.

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

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.

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.
