Seems a little sweet for a Schwarzbier. Not bad though roasted malt, some hop bite. howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2002
Nothing special, but enjoyable to drink casually. Tasty finish. Andrew196 (1858) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2002
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. HighlanderOne (1316) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2002
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. JohnDo2000 (99) - Metairie, Louisiana, USA - MAY 31, 2002
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. Kevbo99 (149) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2002
Unlike anything i have ever had. Tastes like a light stout. In a class of its own. wheatbeerboy (103) - Addison, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2002
Not bad. Tasted a little like a thinned-out Guiness. It was a little too watery for me. Needed more malt or hops or something. But it did have a nice taste. ucsbdude (68) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - MAY 21, 2002
A unique lager.Very full-bodied and flavorful.The roasty carmel flavor really comes through.
