Thanks to richbrew for this one.
Bottle: Amber brown color with a medium flaky head, lots of carbonation; aroma is quite inviting. Taste is straightforward, light body, clean and crisp.

Tasted this in New York on the 19th September 2015. Pours clear amber in colour with a white head. Thin mouthfeel and decent lacing. Short malt present in the light aroma. Robust malty backbone with hints of caramel malt. Short bitter aftertaste. Malt in the finish. Nothing special.

Had a sample on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Not so great.
Abita Amber is a Munich style lager brewed with crystal malt and Perle hops. It has a smooth, malty, slightly caramel flavor and a rich amber color. ABV at some point from 5% to 4.5%.

From the bottle the beer pours a caramel color with a nice head. Aroma of nuts, toasted malt and caramel. Taste has some caramel, bread and a mild sweetness to it. Very average beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well-made Munich lager out of Louisiana. Not especially exciting, but I’m surprised it rates as low for the style when it’s so clean and well executed. Nice-looking - colour as advertised, good head retention. Mild, mildly underwhelming aroma of sweet malts. Very clean both in aroma and on the tongue. Low bitterness. Hay, faint caramel, vanilla, bread. Lovely creamy carbonation. Can imagine sinking a few of these on a steamy day on the bayou. (355ml bottle from Carrington Cellars, Leura)

FLAVOR- very modest flavors. Good for a crazy hot summer day. About it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Middletown Commons). Aroma: Lean caramel, brown sugar, light bready spice. Appearance: Pours a rich copper with average carbonation holding up a foamy bone head; the head settles into a patchy skin. Flavor: Malts up front are subtle; a little caramelized bready malt sweetness comes in midway through; the finish has a notable spicy hop character. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Like Abita Bock, it’s a sort of poor man’s take on the style, but it’s also somewhat charming as a result. Would drink again if offered.
