On tap at Mullats in New Orleans. I like light beer so I liked this one. Better than the mass produced light beers that are usually available when we go out. Liked the Amber a little better but would order the Abita Light again anytime.

Bottle. Dont really know why I even tried this since I dont like light beers. I do however like most of Abita’s brews. Actually not bad for a light beer, but I prefer something with more taste. Gold color, quickly dissipating head, no real lacing on glass, very little aroma. I guess if you really have to have a light beer this is as good as any, but that really isnt much of an endorsement, is it?

My favorite thirsty beer. So crisp, smooth. Little spice, but that’s not what this beer is for. If getting a quenched thirst, or not drinking something heavy is your goal, I see NO better beer than this. By far the best light beer I’ve ever tasted, mass market or otherwise. My only beef is that it’s moderately expensive (Maryland) for what is after all, a light beer.

beer pours an almost apple-juice like gold, with an extremely short-lived head that leaves no lace. aroma is pretty nice - a little hop spiciness, some malt/grain aromas. flavor is really good for the style - it has a real malt flavor up front, with some actual hops in the finish. very crisp, and of course, ridiculously easy to drink. it shows you can make good beer in any style, if you try.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straw color with a smaller white head. Flowery, floury bread dough aromas. More a paste than dough aroma, but I think you get the analogy. Somewhat thick, for style, and lifeless feel. Watery, grainy flavors. Has some real NA quality flavors. Seems a bit unattenuated. I still don’t get it.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bland beer. Tastes like most abita beers which isn’t very good. Try the turbodog its the only beer worth the cost.

After mowing a lawn a man seeks a crsip beer. When the outdoor chores were finshed I spied an Abita Light in the beer fridge. A hay colored Abita Light has not much going on. Bland with no aroma or slight malt flavor. Abita placed the Light in multi-packs I purchased. Now the remaining Abita Lights will await my light beer friends for consumption.

I guess they have to offer a light beer. Really, really forgetable. As flat and limp as a roadkill cat on the interstate.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
12 oz bottle
Recent bottling, gulped 08/30
Medium pour in a pilsner glass
Poured hay colored with a 1/8 inch white fully diminishing head, with a clear sparkling body.
Smelt of sweet corny malt, no hops.
Taste was corn malt that sweetens then finishes short and watery. Mouthfeel was carbonated and light.
Overall, a beer that may seem like a microbrew but has no true distinction from most commercial light beers.
