Very light, smooth, crips. A fairly regular beer which is on the lighter side. Seems to be pretty typical of Abita.

Great nose and that's about it for me. Lacks punch and length on the palate. Not unenjoyable but unremarkable for this reviewer.

Found in a bottle shop in Manila, Philippines. At least its hoppy compared to the local water. I’d probably find this rather unremarkable in the states but here hoppy beers are hard to find so it got a few bonus points based on being available in Southeast Asia. Cascade hops but not much else. No real malt presence. Hops nose to finish. Decent.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not good, not horrible, just sorta whatever. An aroma of lemon, wheat, light citrus. Flavor is a bit metallic with crisp malts. Soft carbonation, semi-creamy head, gold in color.

2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden with minimal head and carbonation. There was little to no bouquet on this drop with very minimal hop bitterness. Got a few citrusy flavours and a slight bitter finish but wasn't anything too captivating!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger white head, golden yellow, clear, good lacing, head does not last. Aroma: citrus and resiny hops, caramel, fruity notes. Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter and dry finish, thin middle, with sticky finish for texture. Taste: sweet fruit and light caramel into good resiny bitter finish. Overall, unique palate, not necessarily great taste, but balance is good, enjoyable, hoppy for a blond, but bottle says pale ale so I feel it is a good fit. Lovely aroma

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours pale gold showing minimal head, there is a faint aroma of citrus hops. a little sweetness and bitterness on the tongue but almost has a watered down taste. Light bodied, little carbonation with an abrupt slightly bitter finish. overall at 5.2% it is definitely a session beer and would go down easy on a hot summer day but would not be my first choice.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Decent beer but not exciting. Pale malt and rice aroma. Faint. Dirty golden color with a thin white head. Light palate with strong carbonation. Pale and grassy malt flavors with a slight hops bitterness on the finish. Decent summer beer but not a first choice.

Bottled as Restoration Ale. It’s ok but pale ale’s don’t travel too well from America to Australia. Probably better fresh.
