DrnkMcDermott (3015) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2003
UPDATED: APR 27, 2003 Draft. Not too bad. Just another megabrewed dark beer, kinda like my first Schlitz Dark. Short head actually hangs around a little while. Slightly caramelly taste with hint of corn. I got this in New Orleans in a "to go" cup to wash out the taste of a $1.50 Skyy Blue (I swear they must be making these with NutraSweet!), so it filled a need. The sad thing is, in the touristy French Quarter, this is the closest you're going to come to finding a microbrew on tap. All else is just Bud, Bud Light...

Hazy amber/orange color; Light to medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of malt, & caramel; Flavor of slight roasted sweet malt, caramel, hops, and some citrus; A tad light - but not too bad.

Id heard of Abita before, but was not at all familiar with their beers. Im happy to have tried this, (one of their flagships?).

De geur is heel lekker. Niet veel schuim op. De smaak valt mee maar is niets speciaals.

SpringsLicker (3479) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Clear amber body with a mostly white head. Light sweet malt aroma. The flavor is lightly sweet, uncomplicated. Decent amber lager.

weordie (947) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Pours amber with a decent enough head. A regular lager aroma is boosted ever so slightly by a hint of caramel. Yep, the regular bog standard lager flavour too.

MarkSachon (958) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2016
12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Not that good, pretty much run-of-the-mill kind of stuff. Disappointed overall.

trapped (2467) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 5, 2016
Draught @ Malt and Mold. Clear amber with small frothy beige head, faint caramel aroma, lightly bitter caramel taste, medium carbonation, thin body, abrupt finish. Decent, not great.

Doesn't have a smooth finish. 4.5%. Igor brought over. I haven't anything yet from Abita that was any good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Abita Amber 4.5% tap at First Draft for the State tick. Pouring more copper gold than Amber with a malty honey biscuit nose that may contain hints of diacetyl. Decent malt forward Amber type flavor but also has a salty sweet edge to it which is odd but overall ok.
