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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours gold with slight haze and weak white head. The aroma is muted with earthy wet moldy pavement notes. The taste is spicy yeastiness and candy like fruitiness. Into the finish some mild graininess comes to the surface to help break things up a bit.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Poured clear, straw golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up lemon zest and a hit of dish soap over honey and pale malts.. not great, but pleasant enough. The flavor found honey, pale, and bready malts at the core.. tart lemon rind and light earthy bitterness around.. a touch spicy through the finish.. OK, but a few too many residual sugars. Light-medium bodied and well carbonated on the palate.. not quite crisp due to extra sugars.. aiight overall.

Bottle from Whole Foods Sacramento. Pours yellowish golden with a thick off-white head and a standard pilsner aroma. There is a rich slightly sweet wheat flavor, more taste than most pilsners, and a dry bitter finish.

Bomber acquired via trade. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. A sweet grainy nose of earthy malts, some honey. The flavor is very nice; sweet earthy malts, honey, spicy hops, fairly dry and tasty. A nice example of a good style.

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."
