3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale lager yes, imperial pilsner no. Malty, Saaz hops. A little funky and malty aroma. Yellowish body. Rather minimal taste of malts, with drying, slight bitterness in the finish. A drop of lemon. Passable beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Yellow to light golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Great retention. The nose is musky, fruity and doughy. Full-bodied and slick with buzzing carbonation. Nods toward the sweet side of balance, but just barely – otherwise, bland. Crisp, lightly bitter, grassy finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. BB 09/10/13. (Stein’s Deli) New Orleans, LA.
Clear pale golden colour with a small frothy white head.
Yeast, grassy hops and wheaty malt in the aroma.
Yeast, wheat and grassy hops in the flavour. Pilsnery. Not bad but a bit boring. But absolutely for a good cause. Thumbs up!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz. Only $4, a really impressive price considering, especially considering the 75c donation. I only thought this was OK, though. Had a sort of unnecessary bite to it. Clear light yellow color, very minimal white head. Nice light crisp carbonation. A lagery pilsner aroma with an evident alcohol bite. Some spice. Sort of an acidic lemon citrus acidic taste. Kind of a light sweetness, some bitterness. In my notes I mention that "I feel like I can taste the ’imperialness’". It was good for what it was, but I had rated a bit too many beers last night to finish the last bit of this. Fortunately the bit that I wasted was so relatively inexpensive. I wish more bombers sold at the $4 price-point.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a near clear gold with a large white head that lasts throughout and laces slightly. Aroma has a a good amount of citrus with a nice light grain backing. Flavor also has a decent amount of citrus (orange peel) in the beginning with a nice grain and cereal finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2011-04-17. Crisp neon yellow, small frothy white head and lace. Mild aroma is pleasantly hoppy and lightly grassy. 6+ Flavour is similarly mild, pale malt with modest grassy hops. 6+ Average palate. Alcohol is surprisingly restrained for the abv. Okay. Bottle shared by Radek

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is very herbal and grassy. A little bit of light lemon peel. Fairly zesty and spicy although it has faded a little bit. Nice crackery malt base with a little bit breadiness. Fresh and hoppy with a lot of assertive grassy bitterness. Pretty damn solid stuff. Warming really brings up a lot of lovely fresh hoppiness. Good stuff.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"An ok pilsner with grassy hops and hay, but like G said, lacking the pleasant crispness and a little sweet leaning. For $4.50, it’s about twice the price per ounce i’d want to pay for something like this, and wouldn’t again."

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 20/20
22 oz. bottle from Randall’s; apparently this just hit St. Louis yesterday, so I got a bottle as soon as it was available here. The bottle has awesome artwork. Aroma of Kellogg’s Corn Pops, pilsener malts, sugar, and grass. Flavor of sweet malts, honey, grassy hops, grains, and just a little alcohol. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, sticky mouthfeel. The beer itself didn’t wow me- another fine, drinkable beer from Abita- but the generosity they’re offering for this cause is impressive. New Orleans is one of my favorite cities in the world, and the Gulf Coast is a cultural treasure. So if buying a bunch of these to make sure any little bit of money I have can help the cause, I’m happy to drink beer, buy shirts, and otherwise put my faith in Abita to support their region through a hard time.
