Dixie Beer Type: Lager ABV: %
Light body, very pale, thin white foam. Pleasing signs of carbonation rescue the first impressions a little. Having got a whiff of the nose before the pour I was slightly impressed with a good fruity malt aroma with a hint of hops. However this soon turned into disappointment the second I tasted the beer. The palate is very light and Iíd even verge on saying weak, running a little watery. The flavors donít really jump out either. Itís a little sugary at the tip of the tongue, turning a little grape-like. But, thereís very little else other than a slight dryness in the finish and virtually no aftertaste. Nothing displeasing about this beer, it is a good refreshing thirst-quencher. Other than that the beer doesnít do anything for me, itís weak, thereís no body, no character and very little flavor to speak of.
Ratings: Appearance: 2/5 Aroma: 6/10 Palate: 2/5 Taste: 3/10 Overall: 8/20 Score: 2.1

 

Dixie Blackened Voodoo Lager Type: Schwarzbier ABV: %
Dark color, almost black, reddish-brown. The tan head is nothing too impressive, and did not last long, while the carbonation is also fairly low. Nose is not particularly strong, but does reveal signs of hoppiness as well as a sweet, malty toasted aroma. Already the beer was reminding me of a stout something that would become even more prominent in the taste. The flavor is predominantly malty with hints of caramel at first. It does wash over the palate a little quickly, which makes you realize that this is actually a lager. Thereís also a nice fizzy carbonation to go with the deep flavors. The hops and dryness come into play more around the finish, and the beer rounds out a little coffee-like.

Dixie Crimson Voodoo Ale Type: Ale ABV: %
Deep red, almost brown body, soft foam, low level of carbonation. Thereís a pleasant aroma, a strong hoppiness at first but mostly a honey-like malt. The malt does become more noticeable and richer as the beer breathes a little. The mouthfeel is very light and watery, with almost no apparent carbonation. Thereís a light initial fruitiness, like a very light cherry, but nothing too substantial. Although the finish is slightly bitter, thereís very little aftertaste. In fact a few seconds after each sip I would hardly recognize that I had been drinking it. I have to say that the beer does improve a little as it sits and warms. Thereís certainly a more noticeable sweetness, very honey-like. Normally I wouldnít have finished it.
