This beer poured a very dark amber color. It formed a light tan head that left some lace. The aroma was of herb and malt. The flavor was of malt and some herb. The overall finish was a touch bitter. I found the body to be a bit weak. Really not a lot that impressed me with this one.

The best of the Dixie line of beers, nice color and roasted flavor. Not a ’smash your tastebuds’ dark, bitter flavor, but great with very spicy food.

Seems a little sweet for a Schwarzbier. Not bad though roasted malt, some hop bite.

Nothing special, but enjoyable to drink casually. Tasty finish.

This beer is weird, I had trouble fingering much of anything in the taste. The color was dark ruby red. The aroma was sweet, fruit...cotton candy? Crisp like a lager, but very dark and somewhat strong for a lager as well...nice finish, subtle hops...not bad. instant update: as I was finishing the beer, I realized that it is strongly reminiscent of a shiner winter ale...a bit more crisp though...flavor is very similar....this is why the division of ales and lagers can be so goddamn fucken fucked up sometimes.

Rather unique. Nice smell...lemon, mangoes? The taste is sweet and medium to full bodied, but nothing really registers. Strange, not sure what to think. Handsome dark appearance, nice head.

Judging from the name, label and pour, i was really expecting something different and interesting in the taste, but I was disappointed. Although better than Bud, it was just a less than average lager which might as well have been darkened with food coloring. I felt like I was drinking a dark colored lite beer.

For a dark lager it is lacking much. A little too thin and watery, with not enough taste. A sweet/sour taste dominates, but nothing really comes through.

The best of the Dixie line, this thicker version offers a carmely and kind of fruity taste. Great beer, and not that it matters, but beautifull artwork on the bottle.

Unlike anything i have ever had. Tastes like a light stout. In a class of its own.
