look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Chilled and poured into a Duvel glass. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.

Appearance: The beer pours out a clear, amber/orange in color with a fluffy white ½" head that recedes reasonably slowly and leaves a patch of form in the center. There is some lacing when the beer is sipped.

Smell: The aroma is nice and clean and consists mostly of lightly roasted pale malt. There may be some apple in here but it is hard to be sure.

Taste: The flavor contains lightly roasted malt, a bit of apple fruitiness and some light sweetness. There are some traces of hop bitterness towards the end.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is light, with limited soft carbonation. The finish is short and lightly dry.

Drinkability: This beer would be best cold as a thirst quencher on a hot day, otherwise not much for drinkability for this one.

12 oz undated bottle into a pint

A - Amber colored pour with a strong head. Large amounts of bubbling and carbonation. Head dissipated to a film in about 15 seconds.

S - Very light and subtle sweet malt smell. Almost impossible to discern.

T - Starts with very little flavor - perhaps a bit of the malt flavors. No bitterness or excitement in a very boring mid-stream. Finishes with a tart almost oxidized bite. Very puckering.

M - Has some carbonation bite on it - but after that breaks down it seems watery.

D - Not hard to drink - can go down easy. Manageable flavor and light caloric content make this one work in the drinkability area.

I must admit that this one aint good. I wanted to like it, but failed miserably.

I bought a 6-pack of this from Woodman's in Janesville, WI for $5.49 in Spring 2011.

Pours a very pale amber color with a quickly diminishing head. The scent already eludes that the taste is going to be that of a cheap beer. There is at least some flavor of so wheat and malts but it is very comparable to that of Miller Lite or Bud Light. Drinks rather fast with no real texture or volume to the beer. This is one you can skip.

This was a much prettier beer than I expected it to be. Copper/amber colored with a medium head that disappeared fast. It also blew the regular Dixie Beer to Hell, man that stuff was horrid. On to the negatives: It was not as good as the Crimson or Blackened Voodoo. While more flavorful and fuller bodied than most light beers, it was still a light beer and you can only squeeze so much out of that. Faint malt flavor and aroma was about all it had going for it.

In a word: Dull. I forgot I drank this beer once the glass was empty.

Poured like a normal lager, with a slightly richer amber color.

Smell was sweet with some mild fruits and caramel. Unfortunately, the aromas didn't translate into flavor. There was really nothing to this beer. It was a bit sweet and grainy, but mostly watery, with very very little flavor.

There was a fairly decent, creamy feel to it at least, but overall this beer needs more of everything.

2.42/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Brilliant, albeit very light amber body with a thin, scant, white head.

Smell: Near vacant nose with just faint, fleeting wisps of grains. Cue the jazz flute!

Taste: Faint malts with the merest, most merciful touches of simple grains. Lightly sweet. Mild bitterness. Dryish, altogether weak finish.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation. Watery mouthfeel.

Drinkability: I believe it was Louis Armstrong that once said: "If you have to ask what an instantly forgettable, bland light lager is, you'll never know." Something like that.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Poured from bottle to pint glass.
Nice clear copper/amber color with a 1 finger heard. Head recedes fairly quickly, I would like it to linger longer. No lacing.

Not a strong nose, but yeast, corn, and bread prevail.

First taste is bitter which is not a good sign. Finishes with a metalic taste. Coats mouth with a tin flavor. Has the tea flavor that prevails in Shiner Bock.

I had high hopes because the Voodoo Lager is decent, but this was nearly a drain pour for me and I never do that. Not enough amber and too much light in this "Amber light" and I can feel the headache coming on. I often get a headache from bad beer so maybe this is a bad example.

I can't finish this one and feel like I need to brush my teeth. Pass on this one.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Presentation: 12 oz bottle, label has been updated since the attached picture. Indecipherable bottling code, ABV is marked.

Appearance: Clear orange, head fades immediately.

Smell: Slight metallic aroma, what smells like adjuncts, but could just be DMS? Meh.

Taste: Faint malt taste, just a bit of hops in the finish. Tastes better than it smells, but that isn't saying too much.

Overall impression: This is a very mediocre beer - not much in the way of flavor. I'll be drinking the rest of this six pack out of the bottle, and not thinking about it too much.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Pours golden with a one-finger head that descends to a thin head.

The smell is of some light grain. Clean.

The taste is of some light grain with a touch of non-descript hops in the middle. Something akin to club soda comes through too powerfully. It has a fizzy, abrupt finish.

Rather like carbonated water, there is hardly any "beer" going on here. "Only 92 calories..." Whatever...They might as well add - and hardly any flavor. They need to "jazz" it up a bit...

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.
