Draft from Mellow Mushroom in Flowood, MS. Small but definite head, nice golden color with some carbonation. Very nice, if weak, sweet aroma. Had a very pleasing, solid but not thick mouth feel. Definitely sweet but I didn’t really notice honey. Others noted citrus - and it was very week. I noticed more of a grape/wine note - reminded me a bit of a St. Pauli girl but not as European or strong a flavor. Will be a great brew during the summer.

medium gold, quick head. Nose is soft malt. Slightly more bitter than sweet. Middle is unripe apple, honey, and light grain. Finish is like a spritzer. Meh.

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. RJT

Crisp and refreshing. Not overly sweet or malty, but mildly both. Good but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very weird beer. It's not very sweet, doesn't taste much like honey (or even beer for that matter). It absolutely needs something salty to avoid tasting kind of gross. It's weirdly savory.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear dark honey color. Aroma of honey, caramel, touch of citrus, candy. Flavor is honey, floral, grain, slightly toasty. Okay, but nothing too spectacular. It does have honey flavor, but a bit bland.

A dark clear golden honey color minimal white head. Smells of honey, malt, wheat, grain, banana, clove. Taste is a light honey sweetness with a bit of spiciness and hop bitter. A little grainy taste as well. None of the flavors are overwhelming just a nice light sweet overall beer. Light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
