(Bottle 35,5 cl) Now simply known as "Abita Red Ale". Pours a beautiful, clear amber with a creamy, off-white head. Malty, caramelish aroma. Medium body with lots of caramel and some fresh, nutty accents. The good quality aroma hops leave some fruit but only a discreet bitterness. Lovely. 310306

Pours amber with a creamy/frothy off-white head. Aroma of light pitted fruit and mild caramel. Med body. Roasty malt - perhaps a bit roastier than most ambers. There’s a little bit of fruit and/or citrus hop to balance. Sort of the usual amber, except perhaps a little bit more bitter.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head that diminishes quickly. Sticky lacing on the glass. The aroma is a good balance of malt and hops with slight caramel. The taste is a light hop with a bitter finish. A decent amber from Abita.

Draft at a restaurant while having a po-boy in New Orleans. Pours a slightly hazy reddish copper color with a large off white head. The aroma and flavor had pale malts, spicy hops, citrus, caramel and some muted fruity character. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It was ok with the sandwich, but not something I would seek out.
