I’m very surprised at the low rating for this beer. Granted, it is a light beer and that is a no-no, but for a light beer it’s pretty damn good. It has a unique flavor that I can’t really describe. I would definitely buy this again (in fact, I’d buy cases of this). It’s highly drinkable (again - for a light beer). LAboozehound (47) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Nice pale color, very light flavor, makes for an excellent light beer. Not as bitter as many light lagers. ronaldtheriot (1936) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Abita Light has a medium, off-white head and a fairly cloudy golden appearance, with moderate carbonation. The aroma is of barley, with a nice hop background smell. Taste is of bread, with a decent hop spice. Mouth-feel is light and watery, and Abita Light finishes crisp and refreshing. This is the best light beer I have ever consumed.

My favorite thirsty beer. So crisp, smooth. Little spice, but that’s not what this beer is for. If getting a quenched thirst, or not drinking something heavy is your goal, I see NO better beer than this. By far the best light beer I’ve ever tasted, mass market or otherwise. My only beef is that it’s moderately expensive (Maryland) for what is after all, a light beer. rajendra82 (1093) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - FEB 11, 2005
The final bottle of Confederate BIF from Biglove, Abita Light was poured from the stubby brown bottle into a Pilsner glass, in which it looked pale golden, clear, and fizzy. The aroma was very mild and mostly grains and malt with some lemony yeastiness. The flavor was much better than most light beers. Had a malty, honey-lemony-sour taste, and a slight hop bite. Definitely did not have that watered down, something’s missing taste that I was expecting. Refreshing.

As far as light beers go, this one is quite respectable. Nice, subtle hops and a tinge of malt give it enough body to be competitive with the mass produced sewer water. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, light amber body with a thin, bubbly, white head.
Smell: As is the way with light lagers, the nose is pretty lifeless, but, at least it’s not entirely absent. Very meager hints of waterlogged grains and floral notes.
Taste: Tremendously light pale malts with a faint touch of toasted grain. Even at this early stage, the flavor begins to thin and grows increasingly watery. Hops provide some vague floral hints and a tiny bit of bitterness. Minor rebound of graininess prior to the dry, clean, but very thin finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied to nobody’s surprise. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Water-like refreshment. Thirst: quenched! Above average for a light lager, but, even the best light lager is still a light lager. aracauna (3606) - Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Pale, clear yellow with a good head. There’s a light maltiness and VERY little hops. Not really that bad despite being a light lager. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 13, 2005
Deep straw in color with a small white lacing. Sweet malt aroma, thin and too sweet for most light beers. irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 11, 2007
beer pours an almost apple-juice like gold, with an extremely short-lived head that leaves no lace. aroma is pretty nice - a little hop spiciness, some malt/grain aromas. flavor is really good for the style - it has a real malt flavor up front, with some actual hops in the finish. very crisp, and of course, ridiculously easy to drink. it shows you can make good beer in any style, if you try.
