Very mild beer. Kinda hoppy. But it's just the Budweiser of the South in flavor and color.

This beer really doesn't have any character or special flavor worth talking about. It's ok for drinking, but there are many others that are better.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale gold in color with lots of carbonation and a white head. Basic lager flavor; kinda blah. Further support for the theory (my theory) that good beer is hard to find in Southern states.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice yellow beer. Good flavor. Good texture. Good beer malt aroma. Nothing terribly fancy. Just good solid beer beer. Good beer for the Bud Drinkers out there to try something different.

Sweet and simple corn accented brew. Pasteurized to death. Very palain, simple, and highly carbonated.

Dixie is a great example of how this style (American Standard) can actually be good. Pleasing golden color and a nice, thick head with beautiful lacing. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Enough hops to balance the mellow malt sweetness. Finish is clean and smooth.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear yellow, macro-look to it. Moderate white head. Smells strong, little wheat and malt, and has an aroma with more character than most lagers. Smooth in the mouth, but it tastes like urine, and is very watery; an awful taste of burnt peaches and paint. Syrupy aftertaste, which begins to taste very sour, like dishsoap.

This is a beach beer. On a hot day, you take it to the beach and drink it straight out of the bottle. If any sand gets in it, it can't hurt the taste too much, so who cares?

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has a distrinctive flavor for an american beer. I enjoyed the flavor and wanted a second. It was unique, crisp, clean and unobtrusive. Clearly better than many of the mass produced american beers that compete with Dixie.

Typical color and thin white head start this one. Aroma is fairly nice for an American Standard. Kind of sweet. Flavor...not much there, really, though a step or two ahead of the super watery macros. An alright beer, though not a good one.
