I expected more from Abita - usually a reliable micro. No head to the pour - looks like weak, watered down iced tea. Has a bit of a funky metallic, rotten vegetable aroma to it and the metallic character carries over to the flavor and the palate. Searching - but cannot find anything positive to say about this one.

(anyone check the pic here? Amarcord? Fellini this beer is NOT) This is OKAY, and not much better. If you happen upon one I hope it’s either fresh or that Abita has improved their filtration.

Great color but thats abotu all it has going for it. Distiguished malt and hops after taste. It’s nothing special.

haddon90 (1625) - Newport Beach, California, USA - MAR 12, 2004
This beer is an Oktoberfest? Pretty bland. Yellow pour with a whitish head. Slim malt aroma. Light taste, nothing special. An average beer.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2009
Pours clear gold with very little head. Aroma- apple, caramel, buttery biscuit. Taste is sweet and fruity with a breadiness. Medium light body, medium carbonation.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2010
The beer pours light amber golden with a nice foamy and creamy head. The aroma is light, a bit sweet and crisp. The flavor of a lightly bittered crisp marzen with not much else going on.

rougeau13 (2661) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Very pale, clear, orange-amber. Aroma of light malt and bread. Taste is ok, but really weak, just watered down malts and light sugar. Thin and a little buttery. Better than most pale lagers, but seriously unimpressive.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 28, 2011
(12oz bottle). Pours copper color with nice off-white head. Active carbonation. Aroma of sour raisins, musty basement. Taste is sweet with metallic notes. Thin bodied with watery mouthfeel. Fail.

BVery (9788) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Orange pour with minimal head. Would be tough to make this any waterier than it is. Everything is muted and bland. Not a good beer by any stretch.

Pershing (530) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Clear gold with a decent size foam head that dissolves quickly. Weak malt aroma with very little carbonation. Thin malty taste. Finishes bland.
