3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a full golden color with a light head. Initial taste is honey, slight hops and nice full maltiness for a pils. I’m not a pils fan, but this is a good one and saving the shoreline? An added bonus.

Bottle. Pours golden yellow with a nice two finger white head. Aroma was malty and bready with grains, wheat, grass and citrus hops. Flavor was medium bodied and fairly crisp with sweet malts, grains, bread, grass and had a touch of honey.

Probably my favorite of the Abita night. A nice hop aroma and taste. Notes of caramel malt and they give to charity.
Not a bad brew.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 650ml bottle...
Appearance: Pours a solid golden hue with a beautiful fluffy / creamy head that leaves sticky lacing all over the glass.
Smell: A great hop aura breaks through first with piney / yeasty elements inviting me in.
Taste: This one has an ! of a flavor. A nice earthy hop and bready malt combination balances this one favorably.
Mouthfeel: Lightly carbonated on a light-medium body.
Overall: A delicious introduction to Abita! Plus... there can’t be a better reason to buy beer than to donate to a cause!! Cheers!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a yellow/orange, with a white head that recedes quickly. Nose is of honey, slight citrus, and some hops. Taste is of bitter hops with a light sweet taste of honey. Even though there is some malt it is very light on the tongue with good carbonation. The ABV is noticeable.

Draught at some bar on Frencman Ave in New Orleans while hanging with Kiril. This was also passable, but Abita is never really something I will seek out. Always nice to have it closer to the source. Lightly buttery, some sweetness, some light herbal and citrus hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle thanks to imtimrhodes. Pours clear, light orange with a nice, bubbly head. The aroma is corn, wheat, bread, spruce, and a little lemon. The flavor is mostly bitter, with a fair malt sweetness. The palate is light to medium, bubbly, and crisp. Overall, this was surprisingly good. Drinkable, subtle, and a good mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
My buddy bought this because he loves Abita. I was game so we opened it up. Poured into a standard pint.
A - Pours pale yellow with a thick pillow of one finger white head leaving thick sheets of lacing down the glass.
S - Some grassy hops up front with a bit of spiciness. Some lemon, bready malt, and some wheat. A touch dry toward the end. A good balance with all things appearing to be in equal proportion.
T - Nice hop bite up front giving way quickly to a mix of citric hops and plenty of chewy malt. Finish is pretty dry with some lingering bready yeast. I prefer beers from this style to be clean and crisp but this one was still very enjoyable. I just wish I could have enjoyed this one on a warmer day..
M - Medium light body with light flavor and moderate carbonation. Chewy feel with plenty of bready yeast in the finish.
D - Pretty good. A good beer overall for a good cause. I like my pilz to be a lot cleaner and crisper but I still enjoyed this one quite a bit.
