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!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), with notes of detergent and metal.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic.
Not enjoyable at all. Unbalanced, rough, dirty, and metallic. A drain pour. A good cause, but a poor beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Dirty straw, slightly hazy, moderate white head, frothy, spotty lacing.   Straw/hay like nose, dried by the sun.   Malty up front, grassy, even wheaty.   Doesn’t seem like a very strong beer.   The 7% ABV is well hidden.   Fairly clean, lots of straw and wheat on the finish.   Could stand to be a bit sweeter.   Very slight astringency on the finish.   Moderate to full body for a Pilsner.   Not a bad beer, but really wished it were a bit sweeter.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle. Very hazy gold, huge white fizzy/creamy white head. Smells pretty solid - grain, cereal chewiness, floral, a bit sweet. Taste is kind of blah - like the aroma, but vague, less solid grain, more sweetness, no alcohol. Light but somewhat chewy mouthfeel, no carbonation, quick-finishing with a slightly papery aftertaste. Not bad. Would probably be a good "tap" beer.

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 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8/27/10. Bomber. Cloudy off-yellow pour with a big thick white head that laces like a mutha... The aroma is plain old corny, metallic light beer, and basically so is the flavor, except sweeter and a more generous wheat hint. Glad for the cause, meh for the beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Pours a cloudy dark gold with a surging white head that sticks around for a while before wandering off. Nice toasty crackery nose, almost overwhelming, like low-salt saltines in the microwave. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Grassy, crackery, right-on pilsner mid-palate. Gets a little warm on the finish, super-toasty, in a nice way. A harvest pilsner, if you will. These hotted-up versions of classic styles are kind of a trip. As curiosities, they’re 100% irresistible. What’s tricky is figuring out how often you might drink a 7% pils.

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.
