Working with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board (LSPMB), Abita Beer announced that it has established ‘SOS – A Charitable Fund’ that will assist with the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill.

The fund has pledged that 100% of all money raised will go to charity. In addition, the Louisiana Seafood Marketing Board will play an important role in advising where the money can do the most good. An advisory committee is being established as the donation process and grant procedures are finalized.

The centerpiece of the fundraising effort is a new charitable beer created by Abita. The brew, called SOS – A Charitable Pilsner, will generate 75¢ for every bottle sold. This Abita Beer is a message in a bottle...a distress signal for the troubled waters of our Gulf Coast. For every bottle sold Abita will donate 75¢ to the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill. This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma.

I have a drinking problem? Fuck you, Peck, you’re a Mormon. Compared to you we ALL have a drinking problem! ..

..A bomber of new brew and chipping in to help the gulf, why wouldn’t i support this brewery which i have always had a soft spot for, its LA man!! .. Appearances can be... deceptive .. . Pours a light hazed light gold watch .. amazing lacing, and decent head .. Osbourne Cox? .. . aroma of light fresh corn, grain, light panel wood, and just a touch of yeast .. . Osbourne Cox? I thought you might be worried... about the security... of your shit. .. A nice brew, not overly complex but a straight shooter that has truly amazing alcohol masking and drinkability, that i was happy to drink and might consider buying again.. recommended for a decent quaff after a hard weekend doing chores.. . Put up a note? "Highly classified shit found: Raw intelligence shit, CIA shit?" Hello, anybody lose their secret CIA shit? I don’t think so! ..

This beer pours a dull yellow with a thin white head. The aromas are lemons, skunk and bread. The mouthfeel is slightly dry with a lively carbonation. this was a decent pilsner. Cheers!

Big bomber pour. Nice, white foamy head. Golden yellow, with a tinge of haze. Piney aroma, slightly soapy, pils malts are very noticeable. Tastes are very well balanced, just a slight sour/bitter wash, maybe a bit of sweet on the finish. Medium body, more carbonation than other pils brews. Finish is a bit slick, but satisfying at the end. Overall, a good brew for this style. I just think I would have liked to see it be a bit more "in your face" style, something that really sticks out. I like that Abita has made the effort to develop a craft brew for a good cause.

PorterPounder (5712) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber. Nice medium golden pour with a sticky white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma with hints of honey and juicy fruit gum. Flavor is sweet as well with some honey accents, a bit of a bitter hoppy bite, some grassy notes and a bit of fruitiness - pears perhaps. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Pretty solid.

Pours a clear straw yellow - not inspiring, but typical of a pilsner, and I do admit to some prejudice in favor of darker beers. At least the white head is fairly thick and fluffy. Aroma is strong, crisp, malty and more than a bit fruity, mainly banana plus a little apple and a little pear. Flavor is crisp and malty, about average for a pils, with some fruity undertone. Texture is quite fizzy and lively, leaving a nice malty and somewhat fruity finish. A toast to all those helping restore the Gulf!

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours a very hazy gold with nice white head. Aroma is interesting, some Pilsner and wheat malts with a bit of citrus and some grassiness. Flavor is unusual to me, has strong Pilsner and wheat malt profile, it is sweet, some pungent citrus and grass, light acidity, very earthy, pepper and a nice bitter at the end. Mouth feel is medium body with lively carbonation. Overall, very interesting beer, takes a few sips to adjust to it.

A solid brew, nice balance. It has a mild malt sweetness and quite a bitter finish. Overall very drinkable, don’t notice the 7 percent whatsoever.

blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Good cause, good brew! Pours clear yellow gold, small head. Aromas of freshly-cut grass and bread, subdued. Flavors of sugary malt and zesty spices with some lemon and sweet iced tea notes. Great balance, leaning more toward malts than hops, but the hops bitterness is there to provide just enough herbal kick. Easy to drink with a clean, refreshing finish. Try it.

Bomber pours a cloudy gold beer with a frothy white head. Scent of malts. Taste is bready and lightly sweet.
