The smell was a little malty with some caramel hints in there. Taste was bad. The flavor was a little coffee and had a bit of an earth taste to it. Overall not something I would buy again.
Slightly bready malts with a watery aftertaste. Nothing impressive on the flavor front but nothing really offensive. HopsGuru68 (1) - - JUL 20, 2017 does not count
It might not be the hottest beer style, but, this is one of the best Ambers out there tomer (3564) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUL 17, 2017
Shared at a tasting, small bubbly creamy head, clear dark orange color, aroma of candy, stewed fruit, caramel and cakey maltiness, light caramel flavor with some stewed fruits, dry and a bit sour. Drinkable but a bit bland. DSG (14883) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 12, 2017

Pretty solid Amber. You can taste a little more spice than a usual Amber. It's good though. Nothing special, however.

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 LaserDave (15) - - JUN 18, 2017
Abita Amber is a Munich style lager brewed with crystal malt and Perle hops. It has a smooth, malty, slightly caramel flavor and a rich amber color. ABV at some point from 5% to 4.5%.

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... bubblehouse (1540) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Drinkable especially at this crawfish boil. Pretty average at best though. Okay.
