COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Working with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board (LSPMB), Abita Beer announced that it has established SOS A Charitable Fund that will assist with the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill.

The fund has pledged that 100% of all money raised will go to charity. In addition, the Louisiana Seafood Marketing Board will play an important role in advising where the money can do the most good. An advisory committee is being established as the donation process and grant procedures are finalized.

The centerpiece of the fundraising effort is a new charitable beer created by Abita. The brew, called SOS A Charitable Pilsner, will generate 75 for every bottle sold. This Abita Beer is a message in a bottle...a distress signal for the troubled waters of our Gulf Coast. For every bottle sold Abita will donate 75 to the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill. This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma.

Sammy (11845) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2011
Pale lager yes, imperial pilsner no. Malty, Saaz hops. A little funky and malty aroma. Yellowish body. Rather minimal taste of malts, with drying, slight bitterness in the finish. A drop of lemon. Passable beer.

"An ok pilsner with grassy hops and hay, but like G said, lacking the pleasant crispness and a little sweet leaning. For $4.50, its about twice the price per ounce id want to pay for something like this, and wouldnt again."

rosenbergh (11380) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2013
22 oz bottle. BB 09/10/13. (Steins Deli) New Orleans, LA.
Clear pale golden colour with a small frothy white head. Yeast, grassy hops and wheaty malt in the aroma. Yeast, wheat and grassy hops in the flavour. Pilsnery. Not bad but a bit boring. But absolutely for a good cause. Thumbs up!

deyholla (11021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a near clear gold with a large white head that lasts throughout and laces slightly. Aroma has a a good amount of citrus with a nice light grain backing. Flavor also has a decent amount of citrus (orange peel) in the beginning with a nice grain and cereal finish.

hopscotch (11011) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle Yellow to light golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Great retention. The nose is musky, fruity and doughy. Full-bodied and slick with buzzing carbonation. Nods toward the sweet side of balance, but just barely otherwise, bland. Crisp, lightly bitter, grassy finish.

2011-04-17. Crisp neon yellow, small frothy white head and lace. Mild aroma is pleasantly hoppy and lightly grassy. 6+ Flavour is similarly mild, pale malt with modest grassy hops. 6+ Average palate. Alcohol is surprisingly restrained for the abv. Okay. Bottle shared by Radek
