en san juan despues de la catastrofe en haiti y con un gran vergaso de agua. tuvo mala suerte de pasar despues de una de lujo. olor a malt liquor al inicio (esto no es negativo). no muy amber que digamos. recuerda a mardi gras!

Bottle: amber color with about two fingers of a frothy white head. Aroma was slightly malty. Flavor was sweet, sort of caramel like.

Drjohnrock (540) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2015
Twelve ounce bottle from Abita variety 12 pack purchased at Jeffís Marathon, tasted on April 3, 2015. Amber color with fine clarity, nice malty nose with some sugar notes, sweet malty flavor with some unpleasant chemical character in the backround, taste mellowed as my glass warmed. This beer seemed better on draft when I had it at Abitaís brewpub and in New Orleans back in the 90ís, and The Big Easy and vicinity is probably still the best place to drink it. Come to think of it, most things taste better down there...

Orange amber pour from a 12 oz bottle. Kind of a damp hay aroma with a malty taste that has a touch of sweetness. Faint herbaceous bitterness that fades fast. Medium body, fairly creamy feel with robust carbonation. Good example of the style. Good with gumbo...I can personally attest.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2015 Pour is nice amber color (obviously) with a pretty thick off white foamy head. It has an interesting runny lacing thatís cute.

Aroma, first whiff was of dog poo. It mellowed out since that first whiff, but Iím stuck with it. Iíll always remember that first whiff.

Taste however, is pretty good. Itís a caramel sweetness countered by a bittersweet hoppiness. Itís pretty impressive actually. I taste some breadniess, and other complexities.

Moutfheel is somewhat watery. It has an oily feel, finishes bitter yet clean. Itís dry, but not too dry

Overall, itís decent, and would be a lot better if they could get that aroma thing sorted out. But I probably wonít be trying it again.Iím editing this a bit because Iím not satisfied with my overall score. Iíve lowered it from 16 to 13 overall, again, because of the nose. While everything else about it is good or great, ugh, that first impression counts for a lot!

malvrich (72) - durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 22, 2015
12 oz. bottle into a pint glass A: Pours a clear dark amber orange with a very nice 1" beige head. Decent retention and lacing also. S: Hops come in on a weak nose overall. a slight white bread crust note. T: Much different from the smell with a not quite caramelly malt flavor and a nice tart bitterness overall. Simple but pretty nice. M: Fairly thin as expected at this ABV. Low visible carbonation but a nice tingle on the tongue. Pretty clean and refreshing. O: Simple, inoffensive session lager wont bowl anyone over but a nice quencher with spicy food. Good to try but I probably wont buy again.

Amber beers usually donít have a lot going on and thus is no exception. That said itís not bad. Some malt. No of flavors.

This is the pale ale of amber ales. Relatively flavorless. On tap in NO. No nose. Ever so slight bitterness. Not notable.
