A semi-weak example of an Amber Lager. I think my palate was tickled more from the Micheloeb Amber I had last week than this. C’mon Abita, you can do better!

Great lager. Malty taste with a very full body. Nice color and aroma too. Damn good beer.

Orange amber color with a med fizzy head. Light caramel aroma. Nice caramel and toffeeish flavor. Mostly clean with a mild flavor and finish.

"Brewed and bottled with pure spring water." I can understand the brewing, but when they bottle it with Pure Spring Water, what part exactly does the Pure Spring Water play? Does it crimp the crown cap? Does the Pure Spring Water match hourly wages with the rest of the employees? Does it have a time card? I certainly hope Pure Spring Water can expect equal treatment within the workforce. Anyways, this beer is alright. On the back of the bottle, it claims to be cold filtered. I’ve heard that somewhere before. Man am I salty today.

A fairly decent brew to enjoy with my red beans and rice, but I would have liked a bit more hops to balance out the malty flavours.

Deep Amer color ok, well it came through in one place and that is it, flat dull beer, malty, soapy, very thin. This beer does not inspire the so called Thursday Night Beer Night. Lacks Carbonation, Not Recommended .

Not the best of its kind, but a decent beer that is all over the place in New Orleans

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint amber aroma; no head, no lace. Quite malty. Abita’s 2nd best beer among non-seasonals behind Purple Haze.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Oxidized copper color with a thick, yet fading head. Mild caramel malt aroma with the same flavors. A touch thin in body. An average vienna.
