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.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Now simply known as "Abita Red Ale". Pours a beautiful, clear amber with a creamy, off-white head. Malty, caramelish aroma. Medium body with lots of caramel and some fresh, nutty accents. The good quality aroma hops leave some fruit but only a discreet bitterness. Lovely. 310306

Pours amber with a creamy/frothy off-white head. Aroma of light pitted fruit and mild caramel. Med body. Roasty malt - perhaps a bit roastier than most ambers. There’s a little bit of fruit and/or citrus hop to balance. Sort of the usual amber, except perhaps a little bit more bitter.

Pours copper/rubyish with aroma of caramel malt, hops, toffee. Tastes caramelly, with firm hops and a toffee finish. Somewhat light on the palate. Smooth and quaffable.

12oz bottle pours clear copper with light tan head. The meek aroma is sugary malts, maybe some 20L like crystal malts and little else. The taste is under whelming with floral hops, a touch of roasted malts and a faint mix of sweet malts and biscuit malts. This doesn’t come together for me as the various flavor notes seem to be at odds with one another.

j12601 (6863) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2012
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Sweet caramel on the nose, fruity and buttery. Sweet and grainy. Rather empty and watery. Long sweet malt and toast. Sweet and empty.

phaleslu (6836) - 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.
