2.1/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Package: 12-ounce bottle. White label with silver trim, “DIXIE” in blue letters, “LIGHT” in silver letters. Unknown vintage.

Presentation: Pint glass.

Appearance: Light gold color with thick white head that dissipated quickly but what remained laced rather well for the first few minutes. Unfortunately the head faded away entirely, leaving the ugly liquid with nowhere to hide.

Smell: For the first few minutes there was a sweet aroma but also what seemed to be an alcohol aroma, which is odd considering that this is a light beer. After a few minutes, only a bad musty and medicinal smell remained. As it warmed up the aroma became downright awful.

Taste: Rice-like grain flavor up front. Medicinal and alcohol flavor comes next. Bitter taste then follows. Aftertaste is sweet and bitter.

Mouthfeel: Extremely thin (well it’s a light beer) with a dry finish.

Drinkability: Not very drinkable - too much alcohol presence with not enough flavor to complement it.

Comments: Looked and smelled a lot better for the first few minutes. Afterwards, the appearance and smell were not good. Taste isn’t great, but not as terrible as it looks and smells. Not as bad as some other light beers I’ve had, but I wouldn’t have it again. Thanks to schoolteacher and biruchan for the lesson. It was indeed a learning experience.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Thanks to deepsouth for the extra.

Pours a clear medium gold with a finger of fizzy brite-white head. Peters out pretty quickly, leaving behind just a bit of retention around the edges and lacing. The aroma is an intial blast of bready malt sweetness, citrus, and then...well... not much else.

The taste is some light notes of sweetness and citrus with a just a tingle of a hop profile in the finish. Mouthfeel has a lighter medium body with an overall fairly crisp carbonation.

Not much too this guy. A bit more flavor and definitely more of an aroma would have been welcome. Decent body though, even if it was on the lighter side, helped keep this moderately drinkable.
