COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abita Red Ale is a traditional red ale. It is brewed with British pale and crystal malts, Liberty hops and an ale yeast imported from Ireland. This ale has a rich ruby color, lacy collar, pronounced caramel flavor and is a tad "hoppier" than our other brews. Available March thru June.

GKillian (525) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Pours clear reddish amber, thick creamy off-white head, and foamy lacing. Notes of pine and malt. Taste is hoppier than necessary for this style; this brew would benefit if it were more balanced.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Pours copper with a big slightly tan head. Aroma is bready and lightly toasted malts with a little bit of earthiness and copper. Flavor is light bready malts, with a hint of caramel and a nice earthy bitter finish. Not bad.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Draft poured in a plastic cup at a bar on Bourbon Street with a surprising amount of taps. Pours a mostly clear reddish copper color with a big off-white head. Aroma of apples, pale malts, spicy hops, citrus, and some tart funky yeast. Flavor follows suit pretty well. Medium-bodied, with soft carbonation and a tart, malty mouthfeel. Really unusual beer, but worth a try.

Pours a nice orangy red color. Very nice malt nose with a nice hop aroma. Beer is very smooth and well balanced sweetness and hop flavor.

I enjoy this seasonal the best, but it seems to be out the shortest than any of the others. It has some hop to it. The Red Ale is what the Amber wants to be.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2009
Gusher alert when I took the cap off this one. Malty caramel aroma rather mild. Golden body with big off white head. My hops were gone from this bottle just some sweet malt.

bottle from tops with no bb date consumed 8/2/2009. crystal clear brilliant copper colored pour capped by a two inch pale khaki hued head which displays incredible retention somehow. it smells of light caramel, malt and earthy spicy hops... cinnamon pops out. the flavor is the same... meh along with some bubblegum, citrus and a slightly tart finish. it is light to medium bodied with a sharp texture from prickly carbonation. 5/3/5/3/12/2.8

Reviewed 7/25/2009 (bottle dated ??): Pours a very clear, red rusty color body, with a big rocky whitish color head, somewhat lasting. Malty, hoppy aroma, sweet and citrusy. Subtle, and enticing. Watery taste, some nutty aftertaste. Some nuttiness in the taste. Sweet tasting.
