3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not much aroma. It pours a lemony tint with a nice foamy head. It tastes decent, if not particularly remarkable. Smooth, dry, a little hoppy and bitter. It’s nice. Would definitely drink again on its own merits, regardless of the charitable cause. A good summer drink.

Pours hazy golden amber w/ a rocky white head. Nice lacing. Floral & citrus hops in the nose with some yeasty sour notes w/ the malts. Avg carbonation, med body, crisp but a bit syrupy. Clean finish. Some biscuits, grain, honey, and malts. There’s an earthiness, piney hops & bitterness. Solid pils.

Found this at Brix in Omaha. Great looking painted bomber. Pilsners aren’t usually my thing but I figured that, considering the cause, I could give this one a go. Hats off to Abita, who came up with this idea. This is a 22 ounce bomber. I’m pouring it into a big ass pilsner glass. Pours with a two inch huge, billowing, frothy head. The head leaves behind some serious lacing. Gigantic bubbles and foam from this one. Likewise carbonation is huge, with fizz seemingly going on for days. Pours cloudy, which isn’t surprising considering this is an unfiltered beer. Color is a bright gold, brilliant like the sun. Aroma is pretty hefty, especially for a pilsner, with cereal notes and lemongrass in the nose. Pretty solid amount of bitterness in this one - it’s pleasant though. Lively mouthfeel with a high amount of pleasant carbonation and a pretty slick mouthfeel. Taste is spot on. Light malt starts, before giving way to grassy and fruity hop character. Bitterness teases the palate before giving way to a sweet honey finish. The biscuity malt sweetness really helps to hide the 7% ABV, which I can’t seem to really find. Really crisp and refreshing take on the pilsner style. Kudos to Abita for supporting a good cause by putting together a great beer.

Grassy and mildly floral imperial pilsner. Light biscuit flavors and not a strong alcohol presence considering the abv.

Cloudy gold.. pleasant nose with orange, apricot, little bready, some hops.. medium-bodied, slightly bitter, tasty, hops & fruit, but falls apart a bit on the finish, out of place metallic off-note, but still refreshing, serviceable.. quite sessionable.

Noble hops and a noble cause! Bright yellow witha fluffy cloud of foam that laces the pint. Earthy grain with hints of lemons and grassy hops. Very refreshing with a bracing bitter finish. Thanks Abita for your donation to our seashores!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Poured from 1pt 6oz bottle a hazy golden yellow with a fizzy large white head that does not provide any lacing around the glass. Aroma is of hops, citrus, malt and lemon. Flavor has a well balance of hop bitterness and malty sweetness. Finish is a bit bitter but not a bad beer for a good cause!
