(22oz bottle thanks to Mora2000) clear pale yellow with very few white bubbles. Nose of honey, grain mash, chlorine, brine, and white wine grapes. Taste of mild orange, citrus hoppiness, grains of paradise, florals, and a soft carbonation with an odd chemical/citrus linger.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2010 Bottle
Pours a deep, rich cheddar orange with an aroma of grassy peach hops soaked in wildflower juice. Lots of dirt and earth in that smell. Flavor is a grapefruit soaked in water and baked in a light baking soda biscuit left in an earthy peach field. Tingly mouthfeel. I like this beer; it’s, well, it’s good.

Pilseners are great but not my go to beer, but this one I couldn’t resist. Not only does the money go to a good cause but it’s a great beer as well. The aroma is a little hoppy, sweet, and has a slight malt funk to it. The appearance is a little on the light side, but has a nice shine of gold and orange to it. The taste is a little bitter with hints of hops. A good drink for sure.

One of the better of Abita’s products that I have had. Good malt presence and very little hop bitterness.

Bottle shared by Mora2000. Hazy golden pour with a fluffy head. Aroma is malty and fruity, with some spice. Taste is grassy, with notes of honey and hay. Neutral finish, with the alcohol well hidden.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber, split 4 ways into sampler glasses. A clear light gold with just a little bit of chill haze and a smallish white head with a little bit of lacing. Nose is grassy, bready, grainy, with a little bit of citrus - a slight citrus zest note as well. Flavor is medium sweet and spicy, with some more citrus tones and medium bitterness. No astringency to speak of. A clean and dry finish. A nice fresh and refreshing pils and definitely one of the best I’ve had from Abita, for that matter. I’d happily drink some more of this. The cause is good, too, although I don’t necessarily see that they’ll end up with a huge amount of money to donate with only 75¢ a bottle.

bottle from midway mart. poured a brilliant yellow with a good lasting white head. aroma was citrus, earthy, grain, and the sweet, sweet smell of a charitable deed. flavor was much the same as the aroma with a little lingering cloying sweetness. body was light with high carbonation. a rather refreshing beer and proud i could do my part in helping the cause. guess i better go buy more.
