3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from the Orland Park, IL, Binny’s: It pours a slightly hazy gold body with a frothy, sustained head. The aroma has some bready wheat and a grainy sweetness along with a very light grassiness. Very soft mouthfeel. The flavor has that same bready grainy sweetness offset by a quiet grassy bitterness - perhaps too slight for this to be called a Pilsener. A moderate hoppy bitterness does appear in the fry finish. Okay, and worth the money for the donation given to the Gulf Coast relief effort. Would that more breweries would allow me to be charitable through my drinking...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow with a small foamy white head Nose is lemony and malty. Taste is very rich with a nice malt background. Alcohol is present on the aftertaste. Not as astringent as most Abita beers. Foamy, fluffy body. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium gold, some chill haze, clears a bit as it warms, nice white head remains almost throughout. Aroma is some grain and spritzy floral hops with a hint of citrus. Flavor is a match. Not particularly "clean," probably from the additional wheat, but an enjoyable brew. Venturing pretty far out of the standard "pilsner" range with the wheat and the 7% alcohol.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light, slightly hazy yellow with a moderate head. It has a mild, slightly estery aroma. The taste is of dry buttermilk biscuits with a hint of hop bite. Not horrible, but not that good either. Great cause though, so I’m happy to help.

Of the Abita beers I’ve tried, this is definitely one of the best. Considering the cause, this was a must try, and I’m really glad I did. Very flavorful and enjoyable for someone who isn’t much of a pilsner fan

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate grain and straw for the malt, light grass for the hops, with hints of pepper and wood. Head is large, frothy white with fair thin lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear gold. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately acidic. Palate is light to medium, between dry and watery in texture and has a lightly alcoholic and dry finish. A very good Pilsener with some nice true to style aspects. Probably the best I’ve tasted from Abita.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a medium frothy off white head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is wheat, bubblegum and citrus. Thick mouthfeel with a bitter malt with banana and a bitter finish. A decent pils from Abita.
