Bottle came in a mixer I recieved. From notes.

A. This poured a dark color for a light beer. Medium head quick dissolve, no lacing
S. Picked up sort of malt, sort of a metallic, grape like smell.
T. I found this to be lacking in taste, not complex at all, simple sweetness, nearly no finish.
D. Not saying that I would never drink one again, but I won't go seek this one out.

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.

2.7/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

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.

Dixie Jazz Amber Light has a thin, off-white head and a semi-clear, golden appearance, with some bubbles and essentially no lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, sour, and roasted grain, and the flavor is of those elements, with an added toffee note, and a back sip bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Dixie Jazz finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and drinkable. Overall, this is an excellent and unusual light beer and is most certainly worth a try.

12oz bottle, another re-jiggered, re-labeled offering from the Dixie Brewing Company, via the Minhas outfit in Monroe, WI, and for you Yankee and Confederate locals alike, hopefully only until the Louisiana operation gets back up and running - take my way-too-experienced word for it.

This beer pours a hazy medium golden straw colour, with one plump finger of foamy, bubble white head, which leaves a low sharply rocky vista of shoreline lace around the glass as it quickly fades away.

It smells of bready cereal malt, corn and rice well represented in a true overslept breakfast experience, stale apple cores, and overripe, browned pear flesh, with some hovering herbal, leafy hop-like essences, and that, yes, here it comes, that sickly fruit melded with plastic astringency so endemic in this brewer's wares, contract or not. The taste is rather over-sweetened adjunct malt - you can really get the corn grist and rice cakes in this one, but barely before a sickly plastic, petrochemical gag-fest chokes you to your very core, with some distracting, but not not at all improved, incoherent nail polish notes tacked on for good measure.

The bubbles are damned near non-existent, the body an actual medium weight, but not through any sane or normal brewing method sense of the word, and smooth with a signed deed from dear ol' Satan himself. It finishes damned-near saccharine sweet, the overwrought adjunct malt, diacetyl, and simmering veggies all making a pledge to further ruin my day.

Erp. I don't know what this particular offering was like when originally brewed in Cajun country, but I can't imagine that it would have been worse than this dreck. A sugary mess, one for which I lack the cajones to recommend to annny-one.

Bottle into mug! A lot better than the majority of light lagers out on the shelves.

Three finger head, amber colored beer, just like the name sounds.

Smells of corn. Tastes a little like corn too...

But, this is a good tasting corn, but aside from the malt, corn, and a small hop finish,... there isn't much to see here. However, this is a good 92 calorie beer for someone who does not want BMC.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with a bite at the end.

Overall, refreshing beer! Seek it out today. If I was focused on finding a good light beer, I would commit to a six pack.
