Light gold. Nose is weedy, a bit taffy-sweet. Flavor is not a happy-making sort of thing, mixes a few hops, some sweeter malts, and what I swear is mint or nutmeg or something. It doesn't belong there.

I wondered why this only cost me $2 at the bar. "$2 for a micro?" I asked. The bartender just shook her head and handed me the bottle. It was the only thing in the bar I hadn't tried yet.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This brew pours with a pale yellow body topped by a thin white head with some lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet yet balanced with bitterness with notes of bready malt and grassy hops. The flavor is slightly sweet and malty with slight grassy notes, a slight fruitiness and a light bitter finish. A slight aluminum note lingers in the background. Light bodied and smooth.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
What I don't understand is why did the bottle have a Old Style Light cap on it and it was in a Budweiser bottle, but it had a Dixie label on it? Looks like something yellow that should be in the toilet. Thin fizzy head. Aroma is sweet and grassy. Thin and watery mouthfeel. Light malt flavors, along with fruit and a dash of hops. Overall for cheap American beer it was good. I wouldn't be afraid to drink it again. I bet it would be really good while sitting in a jazz club in New Orleans.

Bottle from Rai Wines, Harborne, Birmingham. Smells like p*ss/honeydew melon. Looks like every other lager in the world. Nice fruity flavour, with some orange and lemon. This beer was a bit of a surprise, I'd never hear of it, and it was really cheap; but there is lots of flavour here, and it's tasty, fruity and relatively exciting.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 This was my very first Mardi Gras beer when I was a kid. It seems to me that they sold it in 10 oz. cans during the 80’s. Pretty much a "I’ll have another" in those days. Fast forward to today: Dixie is a pretty darn good lager! I suppose that the brand was sold off, because it actually has an unusual depth of malt flavor and body. If you have not had Dixie in a while, give it another try. UPDATE 2/2008: The current Dixie brewed by Huber Brewing WS. is absolute shite. This has the Huber signature, and does not taste at all like Dixie. Is this the Huber contract brewing formula? Just simply put the contractee’s label on a bottle of Huber lager? Avoid this beer until the brewery is up and running again in the Crescent City.

Poured light yellow with thin head. Has a light butterscotch flavor and aroma. Lightly malted and even more lightly hopped. Plain.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2005 Some hops for a Miller Lite like taste. Very similar. Nothing much different from most macros except that it has a little stronger malt and hops flavor. Typical light gold color with a little head and plenty of carbonation. Tried this one agian in the bottle. Actually not bad. Fairly refreshing and beats most macro lagers.

This beer is very malty. It tastes a little different than the lighter lagers. Like most lagers, it has a minimal head.
