3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Re-rate 10/7/12: Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear deep golden with a medium white head. Pleasant floral and citric hops aroma with a bit of bready and slightly biscuity malt. Flavor has light malt sweetness and crisp floral/citric hops bitterness. Light-medium-bodied. A nice one. It seems I like it better than I did 5 years ago. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4
Bottle sample at a tasting. Hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma of floral hops, a bit of malt and a bit of citrus. Flavor of sweet malt, a bit fruity, with a mild and quite weak dry finish with hops and a bit of citrus. Body is too light. Rather boring. 6/3/5/2/11=2.7

Bottle shared courtesy of DenverLogan. Poured a medium golden color with an averaged sized white head. I really didnít get too much our of the aromas and tastes. Some cardboard, maybe some malts and citrus. Thin body.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, thanks Deepsouth!! Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma is of malts,hops and something funky. Flavor is a tad better than the aroma. Malty and hops are present...no complexity but as with most Abita beers I find it prett smooth.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle... Clear, light golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Sublte nose; almost nondescript. The flavor is perfectly balanced, but uninspiring. I can only pick up some tanginess up front, followed closely by a laid-back bitterness. Fairly thin on the palate. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. Medium length, almost tart, then dry finish.

Draught at the Abita Brewpub, Abita Springs, LA.
Clear pale golden colour with a small white head.
Sweet fruity hops and mild sweet malt in a very balanced aroma.
Mild sweet hops and caramel malt in an incredibly well balanced flavour.
Tasty and very drinkable.
