COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Working with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board (LSPMB), Abita Beer announced that it has established ‘SOS – A Charitable Fund’ that will assist with the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill.

The fund has pledged that 100% of all money raised will go to charity. In addition, the Louisiana Seafood Marketing Board will play an important role in advising where the money can do the most good. An advisory committee is being established as the donation process and grant procedures are finalized.

The centerpiece of the fundraising effort is a new charitable beer created by Abita. The brew, called SOS – A Charitable Pilsner, will generate 75¢ for every bottle sold. This Abita Beer is a message in a bottle...a distress signal for the troubled waters of our Gulf Coast. For every bottle sold Abita will donate 75¢ to the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill. This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma.

It's a pilsner, so can't be too interesting. Pours an ugly clear yellow with little head. Smells like beer. Taste is boring, doesn't taste like much of anything. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An interesting balance of a malty base with a decent strength leading to a crisp, dry, slightly hoppy finish. A step above the average Pils, but could use a tad more hops.

Colore oro, appena velata, con schiuma compatta e abbastanza persistente. Aroma e gusto di malto e frumento, con alcune note erbacee e fruttate. Corpo leggero. Carbonatazione scarna. Lieve astringenza. Stancante.

Poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a semi-hazy, deep gold-straw color with a good-sized, foamy white had that featured good retention, and great cling and lacing. Its aroma featured pine and citrus hops with some straw tones, and a mix of light barley and malt, with a touch of spice. Its taste was fairly bitter with a citrus-grain blend, and it had a very light sweet malt effect, and a sourish finish. The beer had a lively, fizzy body with high carbonation and a very subtle smooth and silky effect, and was a touch wet and watery.

Thus is one of the best if not the best pilsners I have had. Great males and hop blend.

Bottle in New Orleans with Bobby and Lex. Pours a clear yellow with lots of head. Smell is classic pilsner. Taste is very ordinary for a pilsner but hides the alcohol extremely well. This beer could sneak up on you. Only a little alcohol bite to it but not noticeable after a bit.

I’m not a fan of pilsner, but I like this one. It pours a cloudy golden, with a shiny golden head, and a malty sweet aroma. The hops are light, but have an easy bitterness on the finish.

Bottle. Crackery malt and soapy hops aroma. Slightly hazed golden yellow with a large white head. Slightly sweet grainy malt and grassy soapy hops flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation.
