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.

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

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured very pilsner like, bright and gold with a big frothy, sticky white head. Left lots of lace. Aroma was of crisp malt, a tinge of sweetness and some bread. Very fresh smelling. Flavors were super sharp, very malt forward with just a bit of earthy hops in the finish. This was one of the most drinkable brews I have come across, just pleasant all around. A bit more full than most of the other pilsners yet this is super refreshing. I won’t think twice about picking a few more of these, they are for a good cause after all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange with frothy white head. Aroma of sweet corn, grass, citrus, some spice, malts and muted hops. Taste is slightly fruity up front surprisingly, slightly bitter finish. The abv is well hidden here, impressive for a style of beer that’s fairly simple/straightforward. This beer is for a good cause, which I always enjoy :) Here’s to the Big Easy.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from the Co-Op in Davis, CA. Hazy gold pour with a foamy, clingy 3 finger white head. Aromas of light malt, citrus and grass. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is wheaty with some bread and grass. Maybe a touch of citrus. Finishes nicely bitter in a grassy way. It drinks very, very easily.
