Beer #13 – Dixie Blackened Voodoo Lager

I’ve never been to New Orleans, but it’s on my list of places to visit for a number of reasons.  High on that list is food and drink.  I’ve never had a beer from Louisiana before, but like many people, I was caught up in the post-Katrina love for New Orleans and I’m happy to support anything from that community.  So, I was in the search for some beer recently and came across a dark lager from the Dixie Brewing Company in New Orleans.  I love a flavorful lager and this one seemed quite promising.  So here it goes.

Blackened Voodoo Lager, Dixie Brewing Company
Louisiana, United States of A
Dark Lager/Schwarzbier, 5.0% ABV

Aroma: Crisp scent of sweet, deep malts and faint hop notes.

Appearance: Nice dark amber, very small head.

Flavor: Caramel malts, toasty finish with very light hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium,very smooth.  Low, but nice carbonation, I was surprised by how nicely it coated my mouth and how smooth its texture was.

Overall: This is a great lager.  Just enough flavor and complexity, surprising for a 5.0% beer.  Terrific session beer.
