Beer Review: Lazy Magnolia, Indian Summer

Ding Points: 61.50

Pour: 70.00, Nose: 60.00, Palate: 60.00, Mouth: 60.00, Global: 60.00

Tasting Notes:

Pour recedes to leave zero head, zero lace. Looks like a lucozade.

Really fruity, but not really in an orangey way. Complete clarity. If the wheat was there to any extent it must have been filtered out. No ‘wheat’ feel to this beer for me. No hint of coriander to speak of either.

It’s a little strange to me that with the orange and coriander added, this isn’t more ‘Wit’ like. I understand it it is not supposed to be a Wit per se, but nevertheless. It IS clean and crisp but the ‘spice’ is not really an element that one can detect to any extent.

Description

Some sweetness, a bit grainy and a very simple feel on the palate. The non-descript fruity feel is the feature of the beer than continues throughout, and although it’s ‘OK’ it never hits any high notes. Competent, but instantly forgettable I’m afraid.

Other: American Pale Wheat Ale, 4.68% ABV and NOT @sessionbeer.

  1. Having attended college in the state of Mississippi, Lazy Mag was easily available. That said, I find all of their beers overwhelmingly average (and overpriced). The Southern Pecan is pretty solid on tap, but their new Rye IPA (Timberbeast?, I don’t recall the exact name) is atrocious. If you think you have it bad in GA with beer culture, count your blessings you aren’t stuck in MS!
