3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12/16/2010: Abita Save Our Shore (SOS) - A Charitable Pilsner (unfiltered Weizen Pils made wwith Pilsner and Wheat malts; hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops)... Aroma: Honey and wheat with a splash of grassy, floral, and lightly citrusy hops. Appearance: Cloudy, pale gold color topped with a cratered head of off-white foam; ample carbonation; very nice lacing - delicate and fine bubbles with "legs". Flavor: Mildly sweet honey maltiness followed by a moderate level of spicy and floral bitterness; spicy finish with a good level of lingering bitterness; alcohol is not aggressive. Palate: Medium to medium-full; very smooth; filling. Overall: A little soft, but very drinkable; the pairing of the wheat beer characteristics and spicy hop bitterness is nice; the little bit of sweetness that’s there doesn’t detract from the overall style; quite nice for the price.
1 pint6 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. 7% By Vol) from Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield, Ohio. Rating #343 for this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice looking, golden and clear with lots of rising bubbles and a good head that’s still 1/4" thick ten minutes after pouring.
Aroma and flavor are kinda grainy and a little hop bitter-y, with some grassy notes and a bit of sweet maltiness.
Body is pretty light and a little slick, easy to drink, slight lingering bittersweet notes.
Overall it’s pretty good, quite easy to drink for a 7% beer. I’d have it again, particularly since 75C goes to SOS.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
