This one is a clear yellow-gold. It develops no more than a patchy island of head, though that stays up for a good while. It even, somehow, manages a decent amount of spotting as it goes.
This is an odd one. Something was done to try to jazz this one up (ha) in order to make it interesting since it's a light beer. What it is instead is strangely dusty and very oddly sweet, grainy and sugary and just weird all around. There's a toasted quality to the malts and some breads, but there's also a cereal grains note. The sweetness is difficult to describe but heavily linked to those grains, maybe some yeast acting strangely and some interesting esters. There's something like overripe pale fruit flesh and artificial sweetener, though a bit of leaf peeks through and a little dryness even comes out.
It's light in body, sure, but crisp and decently clean considering. It bites, even going almost bubbly, but it isn't all that far off from smooth.

This is the only light beer I've had that I couldn't tell was light. All but impossible to find in Seattle, oh how I wish it weren't so. If it were in every corner store I'd be drinking a pack every other night. Good job Dixie!

The Dixie Jazz is a smooth easy drinking beer. It poured a clear yellow color with thin white head that is not leaving a lacing. I am not sure why they call this an light amber when it is yellow in color. The scent is more malty. The taste is evenly balanced....nothing spectacular. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is ok.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with significant amounts of visible carbonation and faint hints of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall cloud-like foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to

S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts with corn adjuncts and very light hints of grassy hops. When I first opened the bottle there was an initial aroma of skunk but it faded fairly quickly.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of bready malts with a moderate flavor of corn adjunct sweetness. Very light hints of grassy hops and minimal amounts of bitterness. Overall, I would say this Light Lager is slightly sweet.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth.

O: Tastes more like a AAL than a Light Lager which is can be read as a positive in my opinion since the majority of Light Lagers have minimal amounts of taste and a watery body. Not overly interesting but I was not really expecting that for the style, I could have more than one of these and it light be good for a summer outdoor event.
