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.

Yeasty, bready, rye aroma. 12 oz bottle. Malty, dry, mostly yeast, wheat. Mildly bitter with some skunkiness and off-flavors. I don’t think the wheat/pale combination is working in this one. Tastes like an average homebrew that hasn’t bottle-aged long enough.

Light head, with a citrus-like aroma. A nice golden amber color, with a lively palate. Had a few of these at a football game, went nice with the tailgate food. Not too bitter, so, you can have a few without being overwhelmed by the taste.

This is in no way a good beer. I like IPA and ale type beers but this would turn me off of the group if this was the first beer I had.

Smells like a light pale ale with a hint of crystal and an interesting fruity ester thing going on as it warms that is pretty nice. Tastes pretty boring though, if not slightly nast.

Copper ale. Long lasting white head. Mike malt aroma. Mostly malty flavor, sorta balanced but lots of dark sugar in the finish. Just way to sweet and not bitter enough to be a great pale ale.

Reb ale, reb ale, you’ve torn your dress. Reb ale, reb ale, your face is a mess. The first thing I noticed about this beer was its intense, grapefruit-like citrus acidity on pour. Whether or not that’s any reflection of the beer, or just pent up offness will be determined momentarily. It has a filtered, clear light orange color, a bubbly off-white head, and steady, moderate carbonation. It has a pleasant aroma of sweet, light caramel malts and light and citrusy hops. No off-putting yeast or hop aromas... nice on the nose, but you can tell this is a light-bodied summer ale. In the mouth, it’s less impressive. It has a slightly astringent rust flavor up front, which leads to a dry, awkwardly metallic bite in the end. At only 30 IBU, I doubt it’s from the hops. It’s light and almost creamy in the mouth, slightly sweet and even a little bready, but there’s no escape from the oxidized weirdness. I’ve definitely become a beer snob. Then again, it shouldn’t be that hard to make a good pale ale.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours a lively and glassy amber with a nose of hoppy rose, grapefruit leaves, and a light biscuit. Flavor is syrupy biscuit hops with a smidgen of rose petals in the finish. Average mouthfeel. Surprisingly refreshing and crisp.

Clear light gold, minimal head. Butterscotch, malt, and piney hops on the nose. Taste is sweet. Nice malt depth on the palate. Mellow hop finish (more like a bitter) with a tickle of alcohol at the end. Pretty balanced beer.

Lazy Magnolia Deep South (no longer called Reb Ale) has a very thick, fluffy, off-white head, lots of heavy lacing, and a slightly hazy, amber appearance, with some bubble streams. The aroma is of bready, sweet malt, brown bread, and some hop spice. Taste is of piney, bitter, and even sweet, hops, sweet, brown bread, lightly-toasted malt, and just a shadow of fruitiness. Mouthfeel is between light and medium, and Lazy Magnolia Deep South Pale Ale finishes soft, mostly dry, refreshing, and easy drinking. This is a good beer. RJT

degbert (1200) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark orange with a fine-grained, cream head. Nose is lime, rosemary, and geranium. Intensely hoppy up front, echoing the lime note, then clearing down to a resiny bitterness. The finish stays with you for a long time, and cut through the flavor of fried calamari. Good food beer.
