(AKA N’Awlins Gold) Southern Gold is Lazy Magnolia’s Golden Honey Ale. Brewed with locally produced honey, this light-bodied brew was designed specifically for the City of Hattiesburg, MS., the home of the University of Southern Mississippi. This refreshing beer is noted by its smooth character and gentle, sweet honey finish.

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.

November 4th, 2013 - Bad beers? You think you’ve had bad beers? No, no, this is a bad beer. Everything about it is a smoldering failure. The scent smells like a lager used as an ashtray. Cigarette smoke? In a beer? Did somebody take a smoke break too close to the brewing equipment? The wan and light body does nothing to mask the flavor of raw potatoes and corn. And at $7.50 (though I recognize that this is somewhat out of the brewer’s control) this beer is an absolute rip off. Cutely named, but tragically brewed.

Light honey taste easy drinking ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A clear honey body displays large, lazy bubbles beneath a frothy white head leaving falling, short lived lace

Aromas and flavors of floral, juicy sweet honey with nuances of tea and vanilla a smooth, sturdy, medium light body with medium carbonation, offering light honey biscuit residuals, certainly sweet, yet avoids becoming sugary or overly simple, well done

12oz bottles on 11/21/14 served at 40°

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.

Bottle sample. hazy golden color, medium white head. Aroma of grain and honey. Taste is sweet, malty, plain.

Had this at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Pours a dark golden yellow. Minimal head. Some floral and honey. Flavor is sweet and body thin. Drinkable beer.

Copper pour. Enjoyed in a pint glass. Grainy smell. Crisp taste with clean finish. Good beer overall
