COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seersuckerģ Summer Pils Abita Seersucker Summer Pils (June Ė September) is a traditional pilsner with a full bodied malt flavor, hop bitterness and a light golden color. It is made with pilsner and carapils malts, hopped with German Tradition and Spalt hops. This Pils pairs well with seasonal summer favorites like grilled chicken, salmon or garden salads. It also is a refreshing choice with spicier dishes, Mexican food and most Asian cuisines. Try it with a mild white Vermont cheddar, Havarti or Monterey Jack cheese.

Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, grass, and maybe malt. Taste is crisp with a nice mellow hop flavor.

Itís like every other Abita beer, underwhelming. Just a very light beer with minimal flavors. Probably good in 100% humidity, 100 degree weather. Other than that, pass.

Sample 7/19/14 (Naperville Ale Fest)-Pours a light golden with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of bread, biscuit, hops, and grass. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is one of the better Pilsener beers or maybe just cause it was a hot day.

Yeah, it had an aroma, hay, floral, a hint of banana. Cloudy yellow pour, big frothy head, nice lacing. Flavor has some fruity sweetness, mildly bitter finish. Texture was rather thin and watery. If someone asked me to recommend a pilsner, Iíd probably recommend Abita Seersucker, itís better than Miller Lite, and Pilsner-Urquell. Definitely a summer beer. Definitely not my style of beer.

I kinda expected this to be total balls but this is more than solid. It is cloudy for some reason I canít imagine and has a thin, long-lasting white head w/ spots of lacing. This is very hop-forward and floral perfumy and it has a full body while still being reasonably dry. A nice prickle of fine carbonation helps lighten things and keep it drinkable. It finishes w/ just a touch of bitterness. I am not sure what Iíd call this other than a pils but it doesnít seem quite to style to me. Regardless, I didnít expect to like this and I did. I am not generally a huge fan of Abita but I give them lots of credit for this.

12 oz bottle, best before 9/22/15, so itís a couple days over.
Hazy pale yellow, with a thin white head above lively carbonation.
Aroma is grainy, light bready malt, grassy, lemony hops.
Flavor is grainy, bready, citrusy hops.
Body is light, and it goes down easy, so thereís that.

kramer (5737) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body under a one inch frothy and foamy white head that left a bit of sticky lacing. The nose is soft bready and doughy pils mat with just a light hint of floral hops. The flavor is pretty solid, one of the best Abita beers I think Iíve ever had. Nicely dry, lots of bready maltiness, sufficient crisp noble hoppiness with just the right amount of bitterness. Finishes softly and dry with a lingering hoppiness. Light bodied and soft with gentle carbonation. Pretty darn good stuff.

something going on here with busy enough body and flavor for a pils. tangy character like grapefruit and sometimes annoying. fuller and kinda fruity caramel butterscotch....perhaps like artificial. cereal malt is abundant enough
