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. ttoadee (1553) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2012
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. ronaldtheriot (1980) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - SEP 18, 2012
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

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.

This isn’t a hoppy pale. Like the others, lazy fits, in a good way. Nice orangey aroma from the hops but low bitterness. zvikar (6349) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - AUG 28, 2012

Bottle. Beer of the month club. Pours clear reddish amber with white film. Candy, orange-campari and sugared grapefruit in the nose, very bitter, a little grassy adn almost dry in the mouth. Light body, abrupt finish, some hoppy aftertaste and fizz. Nice. RobertDale (6755) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - AUG 16, 2012
12 ounce bottle from beer of the month club. Pours orange/gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, florals, malt, and grain. Taste is similar. Easy to drink. BiddleBrau (1221) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Had the ’Pale Ale’ from Beer of the month club. Golden color with thin white head. Citrus aroma. Crisp hop bite, flavor is green, a bit astringent. Hope flavor lingers a bit. malt profile is minimal but sufficient. Not too bad.
