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.

Keg, Southern Hospitality, 9th Avenue, Hell’s Kitchen, 20/02/14. Headless watery bronze. Nose buttered Hovis. Intriguing earthy biscuit, sappy hop, shrub and thistle flavour with Weetabix sprinkles. Likeable and uncomplicated refreshment with some decent malt going on.

Keg at a neighborhood Mardi Gras. Credit for authenticity. Pours light brown with white head. Scent is synthetic grain. Flavor is barely sweet then barely bitter. Thin and lively. Draft - Party

12 oz bottle at a tasting on January 13. The pour is a clear coppery color with a white head that fades quickly, leaving minimal lace. The aroma is hardly there. There is a little caramel, maybe some light malt, that’s about it. The flavor is just as helpless. It’s smooth, because there’s seemingly nothing there. There is a light mouth feel and the aftertaste doesn’t really exist. The flavors vanish as soon as the liquid is gone. Not bad, but forgettable

Well this is an enjoyable and drinkable beer overall, but there are some off notes at various levels that disappoint. Appearance is great with hazy amber color and full head, but aroma is light and bland. taste is clean and simple caramel malt, but not that strong of a flavor. Maybe a subtle hoppiness, although I'm personally not familiar with the Perle hops this brew is made with according to the label. Medium-thin body. Smooth, but has a lingering malty aftertaste. Almost more of a Marzen then a Vienna lager because of its mild taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Definitely not an exceptional amber lager, but it’s not bad at all. The malt isn’t as smooth as I’d like but it has a nice flavor of biscuit and caramel. I also like the hoppy note of finality. This beer would be a good option to enjoy with burgers or pizza.

Little hazy amber color. Aroma is sweet malts, honey. Taste is similar than aroma. Drinkable but not good.
