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 +22.5%
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.

2.9/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

Poured into a pint glass just a bit off of clear; an orangish-yellow with a small white sudsy head. The aroma is pilsner-like floral hops, minimal fruity esters, and toasted malt. It is a very refreshing beer that tastes of lemon citrus, followed by sweet malt, that finishes with clean hops and a bit of residual citrus. The mouth is fuller than expected and smooth despite the ample carbonation. If you're looking for a standard American lager that is more flavorful than your big box boys, this is the way to go.

Light gold liquid with a sudsy head that quickly dissolves. Crisp, dry vegetable aroma. Tastes of candied vegetables and grain. Almost too sweet, but the flavor's pleasant. Certainly an adjunct lager, but a well done one. I'd go for this over most other adjunct lagers.

Another brew picked up in a mixed-sixer from Total Wine. I've been in a lighter-beer mood as of late, I spotted this one, and into the pack she went. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a deep dark gold with a thin white head on top. No retention, no lace. The nose has an odd vegetable-scent to it right away, then sweetens on the finish. Honeycrisp apples, lemon, cheap grains. Good full mouth for a lager. Carbonation level spot-on. Not as thin as its macro peers. Good flavor with this one. Lemony citrus, husk, mild sweetness, and just a bit of hop flavor. Honestly, I really liked this. This could easily be a regular in my fridge this summer. It's light, easy-drinking, more flavorful than most Adjuncts, and just overall refreshing. Way to go, Dixie.

12 oz bottle. Old-school looking label. Some numbers inked on neck - is it a Julian best-by code?

Pours a lightly hazed, very light golden-yellow. A white head soon becomes a ring. Many slow carb trailers. Smell is husky, and kind of artificially sweet, like a sugar substitute or something. Taste is crisp, with some adjunct flare, but mostly that sweet taste arises again.. does it come from liquid malts? Liquid hops seem to be in effect too. Finishes pithy. Drinks OK, but this beer is way too sweet for my liking.

Not a finger of head and little lace. Color was a 4 on the SRM beer color chart. Smells of boiled corn, and rice. Tastes of wheat, rye, corn, rice, barley, and very little hops. Just a little bit of tingle on the tongue, other than that, zip. Nothing special about this brew, will not buy another, but will be kind and drink it if it is offered.

I bought this as a mix and match 6-pack from Everhett's in South Beloit, IL for $9.99.

A rather basic beer here. Pours a golden amber with a pretty thick head. Has the scent of very grassy grains which continues into the taste as well as having a slight bitterness. Really comes down to an average beer of average quality. Considering the taste for the price, you might as well go with Red Dog. Same taste just a thinner texture.

This beer is surprisingly good. I expected an average American lager but was surprised by the sweet, hoppy taste, the malty aroma, the right amount of head and a perfect amount of carbonation. This beer was refreshing and obviously made with fresh, clean water. Definitely worth trying! This beer will surprise you for sure! I look forward to many more.
