3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy light tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a semi-transparent copper brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The nice aroma was Vienna malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting caramel hop aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet Vienna malt mild red malt mild hops caramel and breads. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy, darker orange gold with a finger of off-white head. Settles to cap quickly with moderate lacing. Aroma is super sweet, malty, mild alcohol, sweet corn. Flavor is sweet, malty, fruity, mild alcohol. Tastes like sweet corn to me. Soft carbonation, medium body, and smooth texture. Don?t remember it tasting like this las time but it reminds me of a big can of sweet corn.

This pours a clear, medium brown color with a mild, malty scent. The taste is sweet, malty, and toasty mixed with hints of fruits. It finishes clean and refreshing. Quite a well made Abbey Ale from the Deep South.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 Full, chestnet, foamy head. Spicy/Citrus-like aroma. Maybe a hint of blueberry? A cloudy dark amber color.
I tend to rate the higher ABV’s a little lower than others. A bit on the heavy side, with a firm alcohol finish, but a solid beer. Abita rarely disappoints.
