Thanks to my good friends Jana and Dirk for bringing this up.

A- Light straw gold with a half finger head.

S- Sweet grainy aroma with faint hints of corn with no discernable hop aroma.

T- Grainy sweet up front with light hints of corn in the wings. The corn notes becoming more noticable as the beer warms up. What little hop character there is barely pokes in at the end before the semi-sweet finish.

M- Carbonation good and spritzy while maintaining a pretty smooth feel.

O- Not bad at all... for what it is. While I wouldn't seek it out ever, but if you were used to even cheaper adjunct lagers, this might taste pretty good by comparision.

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.
