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.

This is my everyday - go to - have a few - ale. Light hay aroma with a pale near amber appearance. Refreshing light bitter taste. Very well balanced. Lively carbonation with a mildly bitter finish. Yum - poor me another right now!

Bottle - labelled "Deep South Pale Ale" - via Ale in the Mail. Light copper color - mostly clear. Mostly hoppy aroma. Very good - very hoppy. Hoppiness is actually more like an IPA than a regular pale ale.

This beer is much better than its ratings. Crisp, slightly sweet and thick on the palate. Deep yellow color, nice head, and a balanced bitterness.

a nice and fruity brew with sugary and syrupy flavors of peach and a hint of apricot. the beer has more than enough malt and bitter hop profile in grapefruit to keep it nice and beery. frothy and complex i found this to be a perfectly charming pale ale strong enough to be a good ipa. exactly what one who knows would hope for in a Southern brew.

ChainGangGuy (4803) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2012
16 ounce pint - $4.25 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Served up a clear, light copper-hued body with a slender, whitish head.

Smell: Pale malts, a bit bready, with some caramel accents to it. Hops bring florals, citrus (a tad pithy), with a subtly resinous tone.

Taste: Sugar-toned pale and pils maltiness with a shred of shredded wheat. Faint floral, citrusy hops with a medium-light bitterness. With a little time and warmth some light-colored caramel comes out (though not as much as expected from the nose). Closes out fairly dry with a bit of lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A fine little ale; slender malts, sufficient hop character, and having an ease of drinkability.

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

Nice gold color with lots of carbonation. Nice head, lots of retention. Aroma of hops, not too strong. Hops are present, bitter and dry after taste.
