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.

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.

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.
