Poured from a 22oz. bottle int a pint glass. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2010
The color is a golden/amber with quite a few bubbles. There is about two fingers of foamy white head and some thick lacing.
The smell is noble hops at first in the nose with a pale malt flavor coming out. Has a nice crisp German hop flavor that is also a bit wheaty as well.
The taste has some nice sweet malt flavor. The hops come in to hit you up with some earthy flavor and some clove flavor before going way to more malt flavor.
The feel of this beer has a nice light body and really has a well managed feel that goes down well bur does not have too much or a disagreeable feel
Gold with good, creamy, white head / Nose of corn, bread, cream, and resin / Medium body, fat and creamy, low carbonation, with good balance and long, lightly bitter, finish / Flavors of straw, grain, violets, and honey / A surprisingly outstanding effort from Abita. pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Aroma: Floral hops and cereal malt aromas. jsmerig (1700) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Appearance: Clear pale gold with thick white head.
Taste: Medium Sweetness with slight bitterness in the finish.
Palate: Light-Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation, nice finish.
Overall: Not the best pilsner in the world, but a very nice, drinkable beer.
I’m not a real fan of Abita, but this is the exception to the rule. Very nicely balanced with a full malt flavor and complex hop aroma and bite. Very easy to drink despite the 7% abv edgallow (4562) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2012

Pours a deep, rich cheddar orange with an aroma of grassy peach hops soaked in wildflower juice. Lots of dirt and earth in that smell. Flavor is a grapefruit soaked in water and baked in a light baking soda biscuit left in an earthy peach field. Tingly mouthfeel. I like this beer; it’s, well, it’s good.
