2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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.
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
