Reviewed from notes.

Poured out a standard clear golden straw color, tiny collar of white head, no lacing. Smells and tastes mostly of cooked sweet corn with a side helping of diacetyl butteriness. Mushy generic bittering hops in the flavor. Light body and fizzy soda carbonation. Doesn't do enough differently from all the other Adjunct Lagers to justify the price tag on the bottle.

poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

A-straw yellow with about a finger of white head that fades wuickly without any lacing

S-grainy corn just like the style and not much else

T-sweet corn type taste with a little malt

M-just light the style pretty thin and watery

O-no worse than anything else in the style but there is just not a lot of flavor in this which is in line with the style

I remember Dixie Beer from the old beer can collecting days of my youth. I guess that lead to a curiosity to try the brew. I got a 12oz bottle of this brew from the local beer/wine superstore. I chilled it overnight and poured a sample into a 12 oz. weizen glass. The rest that I decided to drink was from the bottle.

Appearance: golden hue, clear and with a head of white froth. Nothing special.

Smell: Typical sweet corn/grain smell of an American adjunct lager.

Taste: The taste was sweet and the carbonation was noticeable. Not much of an aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, carbonated, and light.

Overall: Nothing came out in the taste to make me want to buy this beer again. Why it could be anything more than a local favorite is beyond me.

Had at Bourbon St in Liverpool, NY
Served in a bottle, had to ask for a glass

A: This beer pours a clear straw yellow with a 1/2 finger of bone white head. Head recedes quickly, leaving very minimal lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is grain, grain, corn and grain.

T: Taste is sweet, syrupy malt flavoring in the forefront that has major corn and grain flavoring throughout. Finish had a bit of perhaps hay, grassiness.

M: Lighter body, high carbonation, crisp body.

O: Goes down a bit rough, not very tasty, low kick, ok representation of style. I tried this to try it, I expected more and got far less. Pass.

When first tasting this brew I got a malty, buttery, and bread like taste. After that I knew this could hold up to boldly seasoned and spicy cuisines.

The mouthfeel is lighter than some of the American Adjunct lagers that I have had in the past. this also didn't seem as hoppy or bittery as some of the other lagers that I have had.

Overall this a good beer to have with spicy and bold cuisine to counter balance the heat, saltiness, and spice in what you are eating.

3.43/5  rDev +22.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

appearance: pours a clear, normal yellow, moderately carbonated, finger-thick white bubbly foam that dissipates into a small ring of similar lacing.

smell: corn malts, butter.

taste: begins clean, with light toasty malt body with a buttery sensation that seems to blend both the malts and hops, which carries through the finish.

overall: was expecting a run-of-the-mill adjunct pilsners, but this one has some character in its malts and hops giving it a medium body, well done.

Clear golden colored beer rests below a small white head that quickly died into a thin lacing.

A light citrus hops aroma with a slight sourness mixed with a even lighter bready maltiness.

The taste was light and lightly dry and tasted of light hops on the citrus side and a very light maltiness that bordered on bready and grainy.

A medium body and lightly dry aftertaste.

This beer seems to me to be a model for average, seemed like everything about it was average at best or maybe average at worst.
