3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a very nice example of the style. Aroma is lightly toasted malt. No hops or yeast. Color is a beautiful light amber. Sparkly. Medium light body wit moderate carbonation. Taste is grainy rich and malty while staying light and not overly sweet. Finish is a little sweet - should be a little dryer. Refreshing but not boring.

As with all abita products, it's perfectly decent, but nothing exciting. Dependable but bland.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This smooth, well balanced, but not very pushy on flavor beer beats your old man’s silver, white, and blue canned beers hands down. The spring water gives it a nice smooth feel, not too heavy on hops, a nice mildly nutty flavor without ever being boring.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Nates in Addison. Poured a clear amber color with a very thin white top. Taste of caramel malts, grains and crisp. Medium carbonation, boring thin body. Pass on this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Caramel malt aroma with hoppy notes. Pours clear, bronze colored with about one finger of off-white head with good retention and mild lacing. Subtle caramel malt flavors to start. Finishes dry with some hops and a watery mouthfeel. Decent, refreshing amber.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into a pint glass. Orange and clear with a thin white head. Bland aroma, light toasted malts and a touch of caramel/toffee. Similar flavor, very mild with lightly sweet malts. Light, pretty thin body, watery feel. Not much going on here.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 12oz bottle from Brewmaster’s in Wilson. Amber hue, murky clarity (can still see my finger through the glass) with mosty lasting fizzy off-white head. Virtually no lacing. Light malt, light fruit, some citrus hop as it warms. Light bitter fruit and water up front with a short light fruit finish. Light on the palate, watery texture. A forgettable beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bronze pour. Sustains a white head with lots of tiny bubbles. Aroma of honey and toast. Same flavor. Quite thin in the finish. Might be a little oxidized. Or it could be that over metallic caramelization flavor. Either way, it’s just a little bit and doesn’t really ruin the beer. Definitely a little thin and light, but that’s what they’re going for I suppose. I like this better than I remember liking any Abita before.
