Sampled last night on 12/10/15. Comes in a 12 ounce bottle "Brewed for the Dixie Brewing Company Inc, in New Orleans, Louisiana". Maybe made in Wisconsin? Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage "Schlitz" tulip glass.

Brew pours a clear deep golden-yellow in color with a thin white head. Some spotty lacing was seen when sipped. The aroma is of yeast with a light hint of sweet corn for the most part. Guess the taste follows the nose with not much else. Finished with some bitterness. Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Overall, not a big fan of this one.

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.
