COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Might be my favorite of their line, which really isnít saying much. I have great reservations as Iíve had good and bad samples. A beer can be infectious or infected. Beware of he latter.

corny, almost vinegary nose. Sweet corny flavor, Sickly sweet finish. Bah. Body is OK, but I'd like it a bit heavier.

Clear amber colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of canned corn, slight hops and some malt. Light to Medium-bodied; Sweet caramely flavour with malty hints. Aftertaste clean with some malt bitterness. Overall, not horrible, but not reccomended! Thanks to Phil (haddon90) for splitting this bottle with me! I got this twelve ounce bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 12-March-2004.

Light golden color. A little white head. Malty aroma, some spice maybe, but not that impressive. Flavor was thing, some malt, but that's about it. Nothing to write home about. Bought this 12 oz bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

Finally I try this seasonal. I've missed it every year. I'm slightly impressed. Good rich malty nose. Palate follows though on flavor, but not body...tis a little thin....but still a good seasonal...

Had a slight hop presance which balanced out it's malty notes. Overall it was nothing special.

This is very much like a pale oktoberfest? Pours out a solid gold w/ some floaties.Smells very sweet/teases of apricot(decnt hopage?.It tastes pretty decent.Malty/some hops/good bitterness(for whatever this brew-style is bock?)Has a slight vegetable essence in the aftertaste(greenbean at times)The head is weak and quick/no lace.It has a dry finish I didn't expect.Not bad for 4.35 a six-pack.This does remind me of cheaper brew but the taste pulls it out of that realm.It was a bit past date(BestBefore 6/6/03)but held up very well in the fridge.still had great hop use for abita!(purchased at Ronnie's in forest hill,MD)

Crystal clear, deep yellow lager. Small, off-white, fizzy head. Honey, cinnamon, yeast and banana in the aroma. Some peach as well. The flavor is very sweet and malty up front with notes of honey and corn. Astringent, lightly bitter and sweet (too sweet) on the backside. No real attempt at balance. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, astringent, bittersweet finish with grapefruit peel and honey at the wee end. The cloying sweetness eventually gets to me as the beer warms.

Clear golden hue. Light sour nose. Small, white, quickly dissipating head. Metallic, sour, pale malts, light to medium bodied, bitter almost skunky hops in the finish.
