Just boring. Amber appearance, very nice head. Smelled a bit roasty, but not much overall nose. The flavor was uneventful. Not too malty, not to hoppy, just sort of there.

It has a clear, amber colored body with a thin, white head. Faint aroma of malts with no hop presence. Medium to light body with moderate carbonation. The flavor is malty with some caramel notes and a faint burnt flavor. The finish is malty and toffeeish. Not bad, just an average amber ale that doesn't really impress.

I had this on tap in New Orleans at the Bubba Gump Shrimp company. It has a nice aroma and color, and the flavor starts off smacking of caramel. But then..........GLUP! A really bad taste in the finish assaults the palate. I don't know what it is. Bad water? Rotten hops? There is a flavor in the background of this beer that I can't describe. But it's not good. In fact, it total ruins an otherwise good beer.

Amber color and lively carbonation. Distinct caramel malt aroma and flavor with some hops detected in the finish. However, the body feels a bit thin. Better than Dixie is the standard line for this beer in New Orleans. True, but that's not saying much.

Amber-gold with fruity, toasty malt aromas and a quick dissolving creamy head. Medium body with little hop flavoring. Tangy and a bit medicinal. Clean, short finish.

Had it on tap in NOLA. Yeasty hop aroma, nice light malt flavors with slight acidity. A beer that would be excellent brewed at higher gravity, it just seemed a bit diluted. As it is, a much better beer than megaswill but not at the top of micro beer.

BBB63 (6155) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Nice copper hue with large head and good lacing. Malty aroma with hints of grain, nuts, lemongrass, grape, and honey. While taste was a bit thin, it was well balanced and smooth, clean finish with just a bit a bitterness and tartness. Thin to medium-bodied. Dry and lively mouthfeel, slighty metallic feel. Not too bad, quaffable, the best of Abita standard brews.

It's an ok beer, but watered down. Smells kinda skunky with nothing special. I like Sam Adams' vienna much more.

Looks pretty good but this is a mild beer. The best I have tried from Abita. Under the water flaver there is a nice malty flavor.
