Medium yellow, decent head. Pilsener isn’t my favorite style, so I wasn’t expecting much. This one had a slight malt taste with a very nice touch of hops taste and bitterness. Kind of a weak American pale ale all around. I’m not sure what good, fresh pilsener should be like, but if it’s like this, I could become a fan of the category. What’s interesting is I seem to like it more than most.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 22oz. bottle int a pint glass.
The color is a golden/amber with quite a few bubbles. There is about two fingers of foamy white head and some thick lacing.
The smell is noble hops at first in the nose with a pale malt flavor coming out. Has a nice crisp German hop flavor that is also a bit wheaty as well.
The taste has some nice sweet malt flavor. The hops come in to hit you up with some earthy flavor and some clove flavor before going way to more malt flavor.
The feel of this beer has a nice light body and really has a well managed feel that goes down well bur does not have too much or a disagreeable feel

Cloudy yellow in color. Thick head with decent lacing. Sweet malt taste with a dry finish and some basic hops bitterness. Slight toasty bread aroma. Overall, it’s smooth and easy drinking. Not much else you can ask for.

Clear straw-colored pour with a clean white 2-finger head that left a decent amount of delicate lacing. Aroma is biscuit, citrus, and honey. Flavor is similar with bits of lemongrass showing through. Medium mouthfeel. Great cause but average beer.

Nice call Abita for a charity first off. Pours a pretty pale yellow with an admirable head. Aroma is bread-like and a bit sweet with some grass. Hops are very light, making this a bit sweeter than I like my pils, but a nice easy drinker I’m happy to spend my charity on!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden body and a white head. Aroma of hay, grain, bread and notable spicy/nearly citrus hops. A little bit of alcohol. Taste is dry, grain and bread with lingering bitterness. Not too much hop flavor just a decent amount of bitterness. Pretty bland but not offensive. Maybe the lightest hint of diacetyl. Somewhat rounded or slick mouthfeel, medium bubbles. Not bad, just bland.

8/27/10. Bomber. Cloudy off-yellow pour with a big thick white head that laces like a mutha... The aroma is plain old corny, metallic light beer, and basically so is the flavor, except sweeter and a more generous wheat hint. Glad for the cause, meh for the beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head. Aroma of wheat, hay, pepper, grass, lemon, pine and sourdough bread. Pretty inticing, actually. Flavor follows suit with grass, hay, biscuits, lemon, pepper, leaves and pine. Fairly bitter. Creamy texture from the wheat. Finishes kinda thick feeling with plenty of toasted biscuit and lemon/pine bitterness. Grassy peppery aftertaste. Medium bodied, thicker than typical and far from crisp. Definitely good and interesting. I’d love to have more.

Bottle; clear gold color. Aroma of herbs, flowers, earth, and a medicinal. Flavor of medicine, earth, hops, bread and caramel. A pretty solid beer from them, which was surprising.
