Clear golden appearance with thin white head. Clean taste with a slight floral hint to the flavor. Also a light, pleasant bitterness present. Finishes quite clean. Overall refereshing, not particularly exciting but a great pilsner for this time of year.

I donít like Pilsners. I spent a lot of time in the Czech Republic, and I think I got sick of them. However, this Pilsner was surprisingly delicious. I would say that this one didnít have as strong of an after taste, and it was somehow lighter and easier on the palate than most Pilsners.

Bottled. Tucked away as a single in a corner store on Toulouse street run by a very nice Asian women caddy corner to Hotel St. Marie. If I had known its limitedness, I would have boughten all three. A lucky find. Clear yellow with white head. Aroma is sweet citrus, mostly lemon. Flavor is also sweet citrus but with big floral notes also. A crisp brew easily poundable (which I did by the Hotel pool) and was the best beer I had by Abita during my stay...this and the Andygator. go get this beer if you can.

A hazy bright golden color. Half a finger of foamy head. A classic pilsner look. The smell is a pleasant flowery aroma, with bitter Euro/German hops. Doesnít have the too-bitter chlorine smell that afflicts too many pilsners. Really crisp. The taste has a nicely bitter but diverse hop flavor. The bitter is there, but so is a nice flowery, estery hop. Like a very hoppy pale ale. The malt does have the characteristics of a pale, but steps aside wisely to play straight man to the hop. This is a really good flavor; slight grapefruity finish. The feel is fizzy and bubbly like champagne. Very nice. Supports the effervescent flavor. Itís a superior, flavorful pislner. Lots of diverse tastes. Wonderful finish. To me this is what a pilsner should always aspire to.

Shared with the boys for Cellar Reduction #3. Easy drinking session brew. Clear golden pour with decent white head. Nice saaz hop profile. Classic for style.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle with Butters and sixfootsix at the 3rd Cellar Reduction. Pours a white head with some lacing with a clear golden body. Smells of sweet malt and hay. Tastes of malt and a little earthy with a good balance and finish. Good session beer.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 14, 2008
Pours gold with a white head. Smells of sweet caramel, touches of apples, some dry straw and hay. Tastes of sweet malt, lightly fruity, some peppery splashes and a semi dry finish.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Pours golden with a mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, lightly herbal. Smells close to a noble hop, but thereís a bit of hop fruitiness. Taste is herbal, notes of cookie, bready malt, light hop resins and toasted malt. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Probably the best beer from Abita.

I cant find my self enjoying this too much. Its too thin and the malts are uninspiring. for a special anniversary ale, its not too good

The aroma has corn malt, and floral hops. The appearance is hazy gold with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall itís so so at best.
