A good session beer. Not too hoppy, sweet, malty, bitter, sour etc. but a little too biscuity. Some ambers are good in summer. This would work in the fall. Also tasted like Germany...and it's not an ale...it's a lager. Holy hell. No Wonder it's so smooth ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I was expecting an amber ale, not an amber lager, and was generally disappointed with the results. There were some nice honey, nougat and caramel aromas, but the palate was thin and the taste dominated by raw grains and a fairly unpleasant

DATE: May 30, 2017... OCCASION: finishing the last night in NOLA, to the tune of The Doors and a thunderstorm... GLASSWARE: Abita pint, just purchased today...poured way before it’s best-by date of 9/28... a nice, orange-amber body frames reasonable carbonation...a frothy head settles to a thin, maybe quarter-finger of swampy bubbles... caramel, soft resin, light flowers and some funk that suggests a flatter profile... palate isn’t far from a Yuengling, with just a bit more carbonation... sifts through the mouth swiftly and lingers only briefly in the throat... caramel and medicinal bitterness bite back... a beefy biscuit is left to be chewed... sweet sugars make up the bulk of this lager, and though it is inextricably linked with New Orleans, I find it easy to like but nearly as lively or diverse as New Orleans has been the past three days... drinkable, unassuming at 4.5%, and a fun label to take in... still looking for that first Abita that takes me by surprise...

Drinkable especially at this crawfish boil. Pretty average at best though. Okay.

It’s drinkable. I know this because I drank it. That’s my scientific analysis.

I have always been a fan of the Abita brands of beer but the Abita amber has always been my favorite. It has a rich smooth taste which brings out the flavor of many of Louisiana’s spicy dishes.

Bottle. Clear amber with ivory foam. Grassy, toasted, spicy caramel, white bread, yeasty aromas. Smooth medium body. Mild toasted caramel, bready, earthy flavors---easy finish___not bad.

On tap at Huck Finns. The mild sweet biscuit flavour and hop citrus are well balanced.
