Deep South Pale Ale is Lazy Magnolia’s Pale Ale, a crisp and clean beer with the perfect balance of hops and malt. Its body and clean finish are ideally suited for all seasons, and the brew is moderately hopped for a great aroma and impressive finish. Deep South Pale Ale doesn’t fit into any category of Pale Ale, it’s a style we made up!

The Story
Deep South Pale Ale, formerly know as Reb Ale, was Lazy Magnolia’s first recipe designed to accommodate one, specific location. It was brewed in recognition of the overwhelming support of the Oxford, Mississippi market, home to the University of Mississippi. Oxford is a special place, deeply rooted in history and a vibrant center for the arts and Southern culture. Because of our consistent growth into new distribution areas, we had to change the name to accommodate our expanding. The label may not say Reb Ale anymore, however, we rebelled against style standards to come up with our own Deep South Pale Ale to make a beer for the rebel in all of us.

Sampled on 1/29/2010. This wheat ale pours a light orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, caramel and sweet. A medium bodied wheat pale ale. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are citrusy and herbal. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2010
12 oz bottle, via TheCheeseMan. Pours a clear dark gold body with a very large fizzy off-white head that took forever to subside. Fairly light hops on the nose with just a touch of grainy malt and a bit of buttered popcorn. Some cooked veggies as well. The flavor is rather bland and flabby malts with some leafy bitter hops. Finishes with some of that cooked veggie notes. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a lingering veggie and bitter finish. Fizzy forced carbonation. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a lingering veggie and bitter finish. Fizzy forced carbonation. Overall, not the most enjoyable or easy drinking APA.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2010
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear golden amber with a steady stream of bubbles feeding the creamy white head, allowing for great retention and some spotty lacing. The aroma is fairly subdued, even for a pale ale. It’s got a bit of spicy/grassy hops up front and toasted malts. The taste is a tad better but still has the same profile with some light floral hops up front on top of a bready malt backbone. Maybe some honey and a bit of wheat sweetness before a bitter, lightly hopped finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and extremely crisp, clean and dry in the finish. This is definitely a drinkable pale ale but not one with any degree of complexity. Since first trying the Southern Pecan, only the Jefferson stout has stood out to me. Let’s hope that MS can pop the cap soon and let LM see what they can really do. As it is, most of their beers are starting to blend together.

Mora2000 (5968) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Pours a clear yellow with a huge white, pillowy head. Looks about like a BMC lager. The aroma has a lot more hop character than I expected, with some pine and earthy aromas. You get some citrus and biscuit malt as well. The main flavor is piney hops. Wheat is present, but not as much as expected. The beer finishes very dry and is highly carbonated with a light/medum mouthfeel. Overall, this is a nice drinking hoppy pale wheat ale. I have not had many beers like this and would like to try it again.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Pours a dark golden orange color with pale golden yellow hues when held to a light source and a massive three finger frothy, pillowy white head that very, very slowly dissipates into a lasting cap and ring that leaves sporadic spots of chunky lacing. Slightly earthy piny hop aroma with subtle citrus notes and a biscuit malt backbone. Pretty bland smelling. Pretty carbonated up front leading into a crisp medium body that is very hops forward with a subtle malt backbone and bone dry finish. Very dry piney hops up front that linger throughout over a biscuit and graham cracker malt backbone that is kind of thinned out into a very long dry, bitter piny hop finish. Not very well balanced and kind of one dimensional.

Brigadier (3250) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2009
12 oz bottle
The last of the Mississippi beers from a recent trade this was listed as "Deep South Pale Ale" on the label. Fairly standard for a light lawnmower beer it was not my favorite. Nonetheless it is a slight upgrade from your typical macro so if you happen to be stuck in the south this would not be the worst option.

Aroma / Appearance - Fading fast the pillowy head provided a nice cover for the coppery body underneath. Tame maltiness and a trace amount soap dulled what could have been at least a little crisp.

Flavor / Palate - Iced tea with a squeeze of lemons make this taste like Southern tea minus the pound of sugar. Very palateable and easy going it does not retain much of a finish. Overall this is fairly average and respectable. Maybe some day the caps will be lifted so Lazy Magnolia can try more complex styles.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2009
12oz bottle courtesy of TheCheeseMan – thanks Daniel! Pours an overly carbonated hazy gold with a huge 4 finger foamy white head. The nose is wheat, grassy hops and malt. The taste is malt, grain and light citrus hops in the finish. An ok pale.

Poobah (325) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Sweet malty aroma with golden color and thin head. Malty, well-carbonated mouthfeel with strong hoppiness in the finish and some honey notes. The bitter finish really lingers.
