COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abita Light is uniquely hand-crafted using 100% all natural ingredients: malted barley, the finest hops, German lager yeast and pristine Abita Springs water. The result is the smoothest, most flavorful light beer you will ever taste.

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.

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.

Abita Light 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.

Yikes, tastes like the gold lager plus lots and lots of that spring water. Yea, lots of spring water.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2007 A ridiculous waste of barley malt, hops, yeast, and the water that it so closely resembles. With a barely detectable sweet malt aroma, this watery drink has a diluted malt flavor with very little in the way of hops. I followed it up with a glass of water, just as refreshing and three dollars cheaper on the menu.

Very pale, almost clear. Not much of a head. Aroma is of stale beer. Not much body. Not much flavor.

Nice pale color, very light flavor, makes for an excellent light beer. Not as bitter as many light lagers.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2007 (Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, pale pilsener golden with a small, white head. Thin aroma of unmalted cereals. Light-bodied, sweetish and sticky with notes of cardboard. No bitterness. So not even Abita could manage to brew a drinkable Light-beer. 060406
