Pours a clear golden color with little to no head, just a few white bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Nose is sweet and honey-like blended with floral hops. Very pleasant. Taste is light and crisp with sweet notes of fresh honey and a nice amount of carbonation. This would go well with a plate of crawfish etouffe.

pours out clear gold, a thin fine head forms and even sticks around, leaving a fine lace. very nice looking in a glass. the first aroma to hit me is honey, followed by some light grainy notes. a honey sweetness hits the palate right off the bat, riding a medium body, then sliding right down the throat with ease. only a fleeting hint of crispness, and no real hop bite. i get an unpleasnt adjunct taste in the finish mixed with some more of that honey. i honestly wasn't expecting any honey, and for it to be so strong in the flavor profile. a very smooth, yet adjunct filled brew. if anything it gave me a bit more to write about, but left me disappointed.

Light gold in color, masterful head, bright white that degrades to a fine satiny lace to cover the glass. The aroma of honey, lightly cooked grains with a floral tone to cap it off, quite pleasant. The beer begins with that same honey sweetness noted in the nose also malt makes itself known. Mouth feel is middling, the finish pleasingly acidic, mellow in the hops category with a dry aftertaste. Clean and crisp beer meant for those hot summer afternoons on the front porch in the Bayou. As I was stationed for a short time in or at Fort Polk Louisiana, and those humid summertime afternoons require a light and fresh beer, so I wax nostalgic, and will rate a bit higher than I normally would.

Out of a bottle at NCED/Marriot bar in Norman, Oklahoma...

Gold color with a foamy adjunct head. Some sense of berries in the mostly sweetish aroma. Lacks overcarbonation -- an OK thing to me but helps stress a slightly woody corn husk flavor in the malts. Hopping is poor to non-existent. The aftertaste is sweetly cloying and unpleasant. Aside from the mouthfeel, there's nothing to recommend this brew over any macro I've run across.

Pours a nice amber color, but very little head, and fades quickly. Unfortunately, no lace at all. The first taste was surprising, malty, sweet, very nice. Reminded me of a fest. Light hops, but not a very impessive finish. In fact, the more I have the less impressed I am. Fair pils.

Below average lager (?). Not really sure what to make of this one, as I could detect none of the attributes touted on the label. Guess I'll have to try it on its home turf some time to see if it is any better. I'll drink it with some gumbo.

Clear, straw golden in color but with a brass cast. Unusual - light, but with a darkish tint? The head is white, creamy, and leaves some good lace. The aroma is of grainy malt, with what I tend to think of as an "adjunct" note, and some vegetal character. The vegetal is not real bad, but definitely not good either! The body is light-medium with a very fine, and gentle carbonation giving it a very soft and smooth mouthfeel. The flavor definitely expresses a good use of adjunct with a thin grainy - almost husky - maltiness that is sweet more out of lacking bitterness than residual sugars. The alcohol is noticeable, even in such a light beer - very odd It finishes lightly sweet with a lingering grainy/husky character that's somewhat astringent. Although it does have it's own unique character, this is not a well brewed beer and I'd imagine that even if it's sold at a price point a better beer can be had for less.

The clear darker straw / light golden hued brew is topped by a meager head. Sweet yellow corn in aroma w/ mild notes of sulfur and cooked veggies. A touch of 6- row huskiness is perceptible towards the end of the aroma. The flavor profile is comprised of borderline cloying corn sweetness since hop bitterness is very subdued. The malt foundation is sorely lacking in this brew, most likely due to the highly fermentable but body lightening effect of ample rice in the grist. There's no hop flavor whatsoever. Dixie finishes sweet, w/ mild grainy notes and lingering unappealing generic American lager DMS. This is quite a dissapointing brew and is certainly no better than macroswill.

Dixie: It’s a well-known regional beer that does not do its region justice. Astringent aroma, and an adjunct (corn) aftertaste. It’s a bad macro-lager, or maybe just a bad beer, pass it by and get a fresh Abita.

Really, really bad beer, evil infact. Really uninteresting stuff, and a bit edgy in its taste which doesn't help the beers cause.

Like Lone Star in Texas, and like Coor's used to be before national distribution, this beer enjoys a regional loyalty disproportionate to its quality. I had my first Dixie years ago in a hole-in-the-wall blues bar on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Overall, its a pretty average American pilsner. Mildly hopped, slightly sweet, well carbonated and smooth. Not a lot of taste, but very easy to drink. It tastes better if you have some B.B. King playing in the background.
