2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper colored with a rather thick head. Faint malt aroma. The flavor was unfortunately rather bland and there is no risk of it offending anyone. I like to be challenged a tad more by a beer that touts being a micro-brew on their label.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange to golden in color with a white head that dies quickly. high carbonation. I was very dissapointed with this after their Turbodog. Watery flavor and mouthfeel. the aroma was hard to find. Needs something more.

Good solid amber lager, went great with a Cajun seafood plate in N’awlins. But all of their products seem to be overpriced everywhere else.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Really dissappointed in this beer - good thing I only bought one as $7 per sixer is a major ripoff. Golden honey color - looks a bit light for an amber ale. Pours with medium sized tightly carbonated head - very light tan in color - dissipates quickly. Small nose dominated by vegetal notes with a bit of hops and malt. EXTREMELY LIGHT flavors - tastes like I’m drinking a Bud - oates and rice flavors with just a tad of bitters on the short finish. Again, very light in taste - thumbs down.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light amber. Foamy thin white head. Slow carbonation. Timid Vienna malt aroma, although crisp and fresh. Minimal Vienna malt backbone. Crisp and tingly. Cleanly finishing. Dry. Light bodied. Obviously well lagered. Finishes toasty with not much depth of flavor. Another ’requires no concentration’ brew.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very little aroma. Vanishing head (nothing like the picture - what IS that anyway, a hefeweizen?). A forgettable disappointment, but you could do worse. Slight hops notes. Decent amount of malt.

The classica Abita beer, Amber provides a touch of carmel to an already smooth beer. I prefer this beer because of its aroma: hot too heavy, but definately there.
