COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

vipinvelp (1887) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2012
Clear golden yellow with slighly off white thick foam, lacing to the glass. Smell is bitter, like beer should smell. Taste although is a bit sweet, but a bitter after taste. Drinking this beer is also contributing to saving the shores of Louisiana, I am a now an environmental drinker. (Houston 201205)

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2012
This beer pours a pale yellow color with a medium thick and pillowy white head that evaporates slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of wheat, spice and malt. Medium body with flavors of bready malt, mild spices, wheat and a touch of hops. The finish is malty with a sweet aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty -lightly wheaty and sweetish aroma, ligth fruitiness with light citrus - grassy hoppyness. Body is medium, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, light fruitiness and light grassy hoppyness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, some grassy hoppyness, light alcohol. OK Imperial Pils - not too sweet/not too much alcoholconsidering the body and bitterness.

Voodoo (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2012
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.

MadIndian (2305) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2012
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.

Forb (26) - - MAR 13, 2012
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!

Ron (2347) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2012
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.
