Dixie is simply a common american pale lager. It pretends to be nothing more, and as such it has a tendency to sit on the shelves and stale. I'm sorry for Sandra430 that she experienced this phenomenon. At $1.25 it was a good buy. When fresh, this is a great bar beer, with a richer flavor than comparable beers like Bud, Pabst, and Schlitz, and a clean yet somewhat bitter finish. I find it to be well balanced. It is a favorite american regional beer for me, great when ice cold and fresh. The best place to find it fresh is The Under the Hill Saloon in Natchez Mississippi.

This review is Very Helpful
Poured a clear and bubble pale golden color with a nice cap of white head taht quickly faded and had very little glass cling.
The hops were a bit skunked and the scent of cheap grain left an undesirable impact on the nose.
The taste was kind of present, watered down grainy malt and stale hops. I bought just one bottle but I can't help feeling a bit put off that it cost $1.25.
Mouthfeel was consistant with water save for the carbonation. Slightly sour taste stays on the palate after swallowing.
If I were to sum the overall experience of this beer up with one word, that word would be "stale".
