True to our pirate roots here along the southern border of Louisiana. The French called the local pirates Jacques, but our Brewster insists on the female spelling Jaque. Amberjaque is a light amber ale made with Pale malts, Rye, and Caramel malts. A wonderful refreshing light bodied ale, it’s the perfect starter beer. The aroma hops provide a hint of spice, but there is no bitterness in this beer. Second only to Southern Pecan as one of our signature beers.

    I liked this one much better than the Southern Pecan, actually. Pleasant hop aroma, a little lighter amber than most in color. Creamy and smooth, but I would've appreciate more of a hops bite. I agree that this would be a fine session beer, as I put away several the night I discovered it.

    A amber pour with a small head and good lacing. The aroma was somewhat toasted with some darker malts present. The flavor was for sure more sweet than hoppy, darker malts present, some nuts, no real caramel flavors, a touch of v. lightly toasted character. Mouthfeel was a bit sticky due to the sweetness, but this beer finished with enough hop presence to keep it from being cloying, but not bitter or "hoppy." I wouldn't drink many of these in a row, but it's a good one to try one at a time.

    Slightly hazed, medium amber body with a thinnish creamy head. The aroma is less hoppy than what I remember at the brewery, but there is a nice maltiness there. The beer is soft-bodied, with a very light sweetness. The malt is bread like, one of the darker types (rye bread, duh). Very drinkable session beer and comes across very British like a bitter or British PA.

    Had two pints of this at an odd not-so-little BBQ place almost within stumbling distance from my Hampton Inn hotel room, in Moss Point MS. This was my first exposure to the beers of Lazy Magnolia, and made it a point to get two full glasses of this, to give it as many opprotunities as possible to impress me. The end result? Not so hot, IMO.

    A golden/amber body, with rather minimal head, and squat for lacing. Of course, the beer was served in a glass that was frozen ice-age solid (is it a law in Mississippi, or what?), so I kinda have to give the beer the benefit of the doubt on that one.

    Even after the beer warmed up to semi-sane levels, the aroma and flavor profile of this beer didn't really blow me away. Rather, the quirky, semi-musty feel of this beer really didn't work for me. Didn't match up with the seafood platter that I had either.

    Some vaguely interesting notes here and there in the mouthfeel and flavor, but really not enough to rescue this beer from The Land Of Mediocrity that it seems content to live in.

    Kinda musty -- perhaps a more attenuating yeast strain would clean it up some?

    As much as it pains me to say this, but I just as well rather drink a cheap Michelob (my fall-back beer while in MS) over this particular offering....
