As far as light beers go, this one is quite respectable. Nice, subtle hops and a tinge of malt give it enough body to be competitive with the mass produced sewer water.

Got this from the Abita sample pack. Pale gold in color with some hopcit aroma. Nothing great here, but a notch above BMC swill. This is a suitable lawnmower candidate.

Bottle. Amber color with small white head. Aroma and flavor was small and had little finish. Better than most light beers.

Draft... Some bar on Bourbon Street. Looks, smells and tastes a lot like any other light pale lager. Nothing stands out.

The final bottle of Confederate BIF from Biglove, Abita Light was poured from the stubby brown bottle into a Pilsner glass, in which it looked pale golden, clear, and fizzy. The aroma was very mild and mostly grains and malt with some lemony yeastiness. The flavor was much better than most light beers. Had a malty, honey-lemony-sour taste, and a slight hop bite. Definitely did not have that watered down, somethingís missing taste that I was expecting. Refreshing.

Iím very surprised at the low rating for this beer. Granted, it is a light beer and that is a no-no, but for a light beer itís pretty damn good. It has a unique flavor that I canít really describe. I would definitely buy this again (in fact, Iíd buy cases of this). Itís highly drinkable (again - for a light beer).

12 oz bottle from a "party pack" 12 pack. Most beers were dated "best before" 04/04: Straw yellow w/ a short lived white head. Diacetyl when itís chilled, a bit tart aroma as well and a light grainy malt. Hints of green apple & a faint floral hop. Very papery as it warms. Well balanced, but very flat flavor. The malts, very lightly grainy, and although not cardboardy, are pretty much non existant. A little green apple and a semi dry finish. Higher carbonation, light body; crisp on the tongue. Way past itís prime, it doesnít seem as bad as other light beers. Itís not horrid, but Iíd like to try a more fresh bottle as it had some good qualities at some point, but were lost with the age.

Bottle. Yellow with a fizzy white head. Nose is very corn laden and sweet with light malty notes. Taste is thin with more corn and moderate sweetness. This is sort of like sugary wtaer. Body is thin and watery with a fizzy feel (like selzter water). Finishes watery with corn syrup and wet malt. Bad stuff!

A rather unimpressive light beer. Tastes like straw. Maybe a bit sweet. Waste of time.

This is good for a light beer. It tastes weak, but this is of course to be expected of a light beer. It is crisp, clean, and refreshing though, so that scores it a plus. Pretty good.
