Honey amber with a short tan head. Floral, malty nose--in that order. Wet but becoming slightly astringent mouthfeel. Impressive hop quality. Some pine quality that interacts with a toasty, richer malt. The best Abita offering IMO.

Bottle from Quench! Beer in Silver Spring, MD. Poured 12/15/13 into a glass I drink beer in. Appears like a traditional lager. Dark amber in color, almost cloudy brown. Tall, light foamy head. Great hoppy aroma, notes of citrus, orange. Malty taste, burnt, dry. Citrus front end: bitter, spicy back end. Dry palate, more burnt overtones. Overall, mattwilliams81 said it well, "Taste is more malty with just a touch of hop bitterness. Nothing that really stands out about this one." #RespectBeerBrethren

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle @ Too many Geuze’s - only one toilet , Ulfborg 2012. Golden amber color, small white head. Sweet malty aroma with lots of spices. Tastes quite spicy, sweet malts , caramel, and a citric hoppy background. Rather dry finish with lots of spices. Not bad, but not my type of beer either.

Aroma Is Wheat, cranberry, mild spice. Taste is not bad...a tad stale, but mildly sweet. Much better than the abita fall.

Dark amber. Smell is somewhat skunky/hoppy. Taste is more malty with just a touch of hop bitterness. Nothing that really stands out about this one.

MacBoost (1939) - Victor, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Pours a dark amber with little head. Aromas of (believe it or not), citrus hops, caramel and cookie dough. Taste is bready caramel with a nice dash of bittering hops. Finish is bitter and semi-dry with a generous amount of hops. This is way better than I expected.

12 oz bottle. Amber and pretty clear with a tan head. Toasted malts, caramel, nuts, earthy, toffee, light bitter hops. Medium body, a little thin, with a smooth crisp finish.

Bottle. This is a pretty boring amber ale without much really going on. I would give it a miss.

3.5
BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Dark amber in color, rich thick malts Nice aroma and terrific finish. Light with the spices this is a easy drinking amber ale.

Hkrivera (154) - Guaynabo, PUERTO RICO - NOV 16, 2013
Excellent winter ale beer. Very spicy, strong flavor, it will take out the cold out of the winter. The maltiness is predominant, it will cheer your Xmas!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
