3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Iím definitely against the grain on this one. Could have been the surroundings, but had this at a crawfish boil and in the afternoon sun, a 6pk of this was really enjoyable. A big floral aroma, a touch medicinal, with a fruity hop punch. Very fresh tasting.
Iím almost afraid to buy another 6 pk; it may not be anywhere near this good, jusging by the ratings.

Bottle. Barley malt aroma - slight sweetness. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet barley malt flavor with light hops finish. Okay - better than most other Abita beers Iíve tried lately.

Bottle. Deep golden with a nice poofy head. Little aroma except maybe a hint of grass. Smooth mouthfeel. Almost a metallic sense to the flavo, but mostly a smooth malt without the starchiness. Just a tickle of hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Definitely mis-labeled this beer. Seems much more like an APA/IPA than a golden ale to me. Pretty grainy and dry but not in the good IPA form. Another pretty below avg. beer from Abita.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear amber with an off-white head. Lovely hoppy, floral aroma. Medium body with some caramel malt but otherwise dominated by floral accents. Dry, hoppy finish. A straightforward and nice brew that really comes closer to an APA than to a Golden Ale. 270306

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold body with a very light, non-existant white head. Aroma is typical of a Golden Ale, malts, honey, light corn (almost mead like). Flowery body, light hops... fair, but not great taste. Bland ending, again fair but not great.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, BB 4/3/06. Poured a clear, dim amber with a tall cap of frothy white head. Nose had notes of citrus and flowery hops, wheat, and bready pils malts. Flavor was a unpleasantly-constructed tapestry of grainy wheat, corn, sour lemon rind, bread, and tacky caramel sweetness... not bad elements in and of themselves, but did not work well here. Lighter-bodied. Palate was all over the place with sour notes, wheaty tartness, soap, and bitterness... again did not flow. Great cause, though.
