look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Crimson is actually a perfect description of the color. Maybe a hint of light amber. The head is pretty sparse with slight retention. There is no discernable bubbling of any kind. And no lacing to speak of.

Smell- This was the first thing that came to my mind when I wiffed this brew. A amber malt slash syrup smell with a hint or two of dry hops.

Taste- A very red flavor. Ever had a beer that taste like it looks, well this beer is a great example. A syrupy, semi-sweet amber malt flavor with a hint of pellet hops.

Mouthfeel- The red feel coats the palate pretty well. a little ily and slick on the middle of the tongue.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Well its definitely red. Not much head to it, but a pretty hue for sure. Aroma was largely malt forward, residual sweetness.

Taste, unadventurous, somewhat smooth, seems like the alcohol is too noticeable, bitterness in something like this has to be a flaw. Metallic flavor in a red isn't cool. Beer comes off as a little thicker only because of its viscosity and lack of carbonation downbottle, isn't really offering any textual heft to it.

Kind of an artwork beer more than anything.

From notes at Old Chicago (2002): For a proclaimed red ale, this one poured dark brown and slightly hazy with orangey highlights and a small beigey head. Aroma predominantly of sweet dark malts, molasses and a hint of fruit. Flavor is also malty with prunes, alfalfa and herby notes with an astringent finish. Light to medium body and slight carbonation. Nothing special.

Pours amber with a thin white head. Red fruit, molasses, and malt in the aroma. Kind of a candy-fake aroma rather than the real deal. Caramel malt, rasberry, and veggies in the taste. Flat, lifeless mouthfeel. Cool name, lame beer. Not like Dixie products are the pinnacle, but this is embarassing

A: Poured a bright crimson red color with a thin, sparse light tan, bubbly head. Visible carbonation was soft.

S: a nice sweet maltiness with some dry pine hopping, and light dry roasted caramel.

T: The initial flavor had a nice sweet maltiness up front as the aroma followed by a dry toasted caramel malting and fruitiness (berries). There was a light tart berry fade on the finish.

M: light, thin with a flat carbonation.

D: A sweet drinking beer which may limit multiples or enjoyment for people who don't like big fruity drinks.

Light and hazy in color this beer had little odor and less flavor. For an amber Its color was short of the desired hue and the three of us involved in the tasting universally agreed the remaining three beers should be given to those we don't like at the next family gathering.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: a hazy amber color with a very short 1/2" head that falls apart immediately. No signs of lace either.

Smell: an odd but not offensive smell of freshly buttered bread and some caramel candy.

Taste: bread, caramel, hint of nuts, and little bitterness. Very dry throughout.

Mouthfeel: lighlty crisp and very dry. Very brief bread and caramel aftertaste. Medium bodied.

Drinkability: very average tasting beer not worth seeking out unless you are partying in New Orleans and want to support a local brewery.

Dixie Crimson Voodoo Ale
12 oz brown bottle
Served in a 20 oz tulip pint glass

* Labor Day weekend 2006 *

Pours a dark shade of red with some light brown highlights. Nice, off white colored head on top that leaves trails of sticky lacings.

The nose is heavy of sweet malts with a light whiff of hops in the background.

The mouthfeel has a moderate body with a major caramel malt profile. Juicy malt presence is at the front of taste. A slightly off and sour flavor appears and makes the beer imbalaned. The taste starts out strong, but turns to a metallic twang and syrupy mess.

I don't see myself revisiting this beer anytime soon. It becomes harder to put down with each sip. A rather mundane offering from Dixie.

it's rough.
I remember drinking this all the time when I was younger and didn't have an understanding as to how to enjoy a beer. Now though, this stuff is too thick, goes down really rough and just doesn't do it for me anymore.
Sorry.

took it right out of a bottle, mouthfeel was tough. Very hard to take down, scent wasn't too good. I found myself asking how I used to be able to drink this.

Purs a reddish amber in hue with a thin layer of head. I wasn't too impressed with the head, but the color is great.
It smells malt driven. I got a slight fruity scent, but no hops to be found. Pretty average.
It tasted a tad bland. It was very malty sweet with little to no bitterness. It tasted like a mild british ale.
It felt pretty thin over the tongue. Pretty average.
I will probably not have this again.

12 ouncer without freshness dating. Pours with a loose medium bubble tan head, with decent retention. Nose is sweet with a wiff of cherry. Reddish medium brown and abit murky. This is a fairly sweet brew, not a whole lot of flavor, depth or interest going on here. Medium dull malt early, minimal haps in the finish. Tastes like a mellow Brit mild ale, which is not a bad thing. Fairly smooth and drinkable, but still not something I'd be quick to buy again.
