COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle. Pours an extremely pale, light yellow color with a somewhat foamy white head. Flavor and aroma are very light, but pretty much exactly what you would expect from a light beer. Still I wouldn’t be in a hurry to go back to it either.

Suttree (4902) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Clear yellow. No head. Smells like bread and corn. Tastes like bread and corn. No I’ve drank Abita Light.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Pours yellow with small white head. The aroma is grainy with some light fruit notes. Flavor is thin and metallic with some faint citrus and husk notes. Not great.

12oz bottle. Pours golden hue with a lasting white head and soda like carbonation. Nose is light herbal hops and sweet biscuit malt. Light, very crisp body. Light hops, sweet malt combine on the palate. Light finish. Not a bad brew for a light beer, but it is still a light beer.

DrSilverworm (5016) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2011
12oz bottle, purchased from Party Source for $1.45. Clear yellow color, minimal head, some lace. Somewhat skunky nose that pale lagers usually have, but it’s nowhere near as bad as it is in the usual macrobrews. Some citrus, spice. Light sweet taste, minimal carbonation, very smooth and drinkable. Great light beer, this would be a nice one to play beer pong with, if it was price-competitive.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Tap. Light, bland, hint of grain, faint hops. Pretty unimpressive, but not horrible for a light lager.

Drake (7926) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA, on 3/21/11. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized frothy white head that fades fairly quickly. Pale grassy aroma, faint graininess. The taste is grassy hops, grain, something fruity. Thin-medium bodied. About what I expected.

wlajwl (3546) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 1, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2011 Not the most flavorful beer, a bit watery but decent enough flavor that was there and it was very easy to drink, probably good on a hot day.

AmEricanbrew (5522) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 29, 2011
Brilliant golden color/ fleeting white head. Sulfer, earthy swamp water smell. Light bodied. Weak, watery, bland, grainy pale malt flavors--useless beverage--ok it might be useful as slug bait in the garden~~~

12 ounce bottle that pours an amazing gold color, and I was excited to try it, however that was the best thing about this beer, was the color of it, no flavor, and tasted horrible... The worst Abita beer I have ever had....
