Timber Beast is the first in Lazy Magnolia’s Back Porch Series. A spicy, full-bodied Imperial Rye Pale Ale balanced with a generous dose of Zythos hops. Retreat to the Back Porch and be a little Lazy. Big Cheers Y’all.

Bottled from Taps and Crafts. Light caramel and creamy malt drive forward at first, followed by an impression of grapefruit, then a sharp spike of alcohol. Once the alcohol fades, a strong, warm aftertaste lingers.

Pours a heavy flocculated brown. Outstanding head volume, very good retention and world class lacing. Outstanding nose of spicy rye, citrus hops (orange, tangerine) and a rich caramel and biscuit background. Light medium body with a smooth texture that has creamy moments. Normal carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a fair amount in the finish. The flavor profile has the potential to be outstanding, but fails to cover the alcohol. What results is a nice citric hop flavor accompanied by the rye over a rich caramel in the beginning. The middle brings a mild bitterness that has both rye and hop characteristics that have pine aspects as well. Then comes the alcohol and it overwhelms everything from then on. The brewer snatched defeat from the jaws of victory on this one.

Bottled 8/14/14 – Aromas of rye, figs, orange zest and marzipan. Small bespeckled amber liquid. I say bespeckled because it appears hazy, but after further review there are small bits floating about. Smallish ecru colored head. Sweet from the start. Caramel, light licorice and mild fruit., Licorice nearly always throws me off. This one is no exception. Some light rye spice. But the licorice is still distracting for me. Perhaps a fresher sample might have swayed me to like this more. 4/15

Looks good at pour. Glows orange in the glass, a touch hazy, medium khaki head. Restrained hop nose is piney. Flavors are weird. Strong hop resins, grass and pine, acrid sickly sweet grainy malts, burning alcohol finish. I guess the rye is the source of the strong graininess, but I don’t understand the weird sweet-heavy palate and I guess I’m not a fan of the spicy resiny Zythos hop.

10 ounce sample on tap at Bangers in Austin. Aroma has some spicy, peppery rye hints. Some grapefruit citrus is also present. Transparent amber body with a medium yellow head. Starts with some sweet, caramel almost fruity maltiness. A little rye spiciness in the middle. Finishes with a floral hoppy bitterness that is mild. Low carbonation.

Emeister84 (2004) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Aromas of peppery spice, juicy tropical fruit, citrusy. Hazy red-orange with a fairly lasting white head. Dry, spicy, freshly hoppy. Medium bodied, somewhat sticky.

jefcon (1612) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Rye and tart cherry, creamy mouthfeel. I find some LM beers to be sweet, but this is pretty moderate. Dry finish, some bitterness, some rustic malts.

commonshawn (1012) - Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2015
Tap at bangers in Austin with commonmac. Copper with frothy white head. 14oz pour. Hop forward aroma. Citrus peel, some darker flavor are there but more subtle than expected. Mostly hop and bitter citrus. Some off sourness and a tiny bit of spice. Lots of grain malt which could be better. Finish is quick and dry. Short of a beast but good effort.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 1, 2015
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy orange pour with a fluffy white head. Bitter and dry hop aroma with a light citrus undertone. Rye really dries it out. Flavor is bitter and dry at the start with some light citrus and pine resin coming up at the middle. Dry and lingering bitter finish.
