stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is quite floral and citrusy. The flavor is sweet, floral, mild bitterness in the finish. Decent body, one of the best pilsner’s i have ever had. (But i am not much of a fan for pilsner’s)

zathrus13 (1691) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Slightly cloudy yellow/gold, with a white head. Aromas are citrusy hops, grain, grass, fruit, and malt. Flavors are hops, fruit, malt, and grain, with a floral touch. A nice pilsener. Thanks to FlacoAlto for this bottle.

T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - OCT 21, 2006
bottle, poured a nice golden yellow with white head. Had a nice crisp taste to it. Also had a bit of a floral taste to it.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Slightly hazy yellow, average fizzy white head. Really interesting hop aroma - very dry and sharp, sweet, pine resin and herbal/pungent character, light fresh grain malt. The taste is a little more straightforward - light wheaty malt baseline, then an abundance of herbal hops, lightly funky, crisp, not as much citrus/resin character as in the nose - decent pils attempt, clean, dry, no adjuncts or crap in it at all. Light body, solid carbonation, mild astringency with a quick, crisp, somewhat bitter finish - good beer.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Golden color, small white head, grassy aroma, light clean malty flavor, then a grassy, herbal finish. Ok beer.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Best Abita beer I’ve ever had, period. Medium gold, slight chill haze, nice white head that lasted well. Aroma lightly floral with a distinct pineapple note, quite hoppy. Slightly gummy pale malts are balanced nicely by a drying bitter floral finish, with the pineapple coming through at the end to remind you that this is an American brew take on the style. Really good stuff.

unclemattie (4035) - Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Had this beer with brutalbitter at WildWingCafe in Marietta(eastlake). Golden in color. Thin white head. Aroma of dirty panties. Citrusy hoppiness. not much malt to it. Probably the best Abita I’ve found so far.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle from KAggie97. You rock, dude! Pours a richer-than-normal-yellow for a pilsner. Small head, but intricate lacing on the edge of the glass. Aroma is grassy hops. Flavor is floral, with notes of grass and peach. Mouthfeel is decent. Not bad.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle. Aroma was malty sweet. Clear gold body with white head. The malt presence held back the bitterness with a decent zesty flavor. A good refreshment. What came to mind with this one could drink a sixer of this while playing cards instead of keystone light.

TChrome (1400) - Bedford, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Beer pours lightly cloudy golden color with a totally retained egg white head and nice lacing. Aroma is quite spicy, hoppy with a floral note as well as a bit of bready malt. Flavor is dead on for a quality pilsener. Very spicy, hoppy with a nice malty balance. Palate is crisp and refreshing. This is good beer and phenomenal for a pils.
