Move along, nothing much to see here. Nice label. Pretty average nondescript beer. ttoadee (1553) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Slight orange hue, thick foamy light creme head. Nose is malt. Bittersweet. Middle is toffee & caramelized malt,like liquid bread. Finish has a little hop kick, but stays mostly sweet. dlihcsnatas (767) - Temple, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Haven’t tried anything from Abita after the past bad examples. Would have passed this one by if it wasn’t for finding it at a decent price in the singles section. OK one bottle won’t kill me I guess. Poured up a clear amber with no head. Smells of caramel and rust. Was expecting the signature dirt back taste that previous Abita brews had but luckily and surprisingly this one did not have that. It is actually not too bad to drink. Not sure if the brewery got a new filter to clean up that swamp water or what but this one is actually good. shrubber85 (11573) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle. Lactic caramel malt and alcohol aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet caramel malt and moderately bitter/astringent herbal alcohol flavor. At least it tries to be a bock (unlike Shiner Bock). AlexCorleone (9) - ITALY - MAR 16, 2015 does not count
