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.

adwoan99 (244) - Ft. Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Pours piss-yellow, but with a decent sized head. Aroma is a bit sour, a little malt, but no hops present at all. Tastes like a lager, and believe it or not, didn't seem too terribly bad. More flavourful than Pilsner Urquell, but those aren't flavours that you will enjoy. Still watery, still no flavour, still a drain-pour.

Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 22, 2003
Aroma is sweet smelling with some straw. Much better than any other American Standard beers in the aroma department. Appearance is a dark golden color. Flavor is rather sweet with a whipped cream and honey flavor mixed in with the all the other adjuncts. Palate is horrible! Leaves this sort of artifical strange flavor on your tounge. And it has a metal ting like it came from a can, which it didn't. Probably better than other BMC choices and ok for what it is. But its a little strange overall.

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2003
A well-balanced, refreshing, sparkling water; much like Evian. Enjoy with a lemon or lime twist! ... seriously, this brew does go well with a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup. Otherwise, its faint honey aroma is the only thing going for this bland lager.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Good deep white head. Golden-pear color. Sweet malt aroma. Same applies to the taste. Not very fullbodied, a little watery in the aftertaste. Average beer.

This is a fairly smooth lager, palate is a bit on the heavy side. Very faint sense of honey in the taste. Good appearance and lacing, nice finish.
