Abita "Restoration Pale Ale"
Abita Brewing Company - Covington, Louisiana USA
American Pale Ale (ABV 5%) (IBU 20)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 2.7/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 10/20

The pour was a clear light amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced to a few puddles and a small collar of residue and had fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was very mild of a grain malt, floral hops and a mild earthy yeast with hints of a mild caramel and citrus (orange and grapefruit).

The taste was very lightly bitter from start to finish with a hint of orange peel early on and a mild hoppy ending. The flavor was very short lived, fading very quickly after the swallow.

Mouthfeel was light in body and had a watery texture and a super mild carbonation.

Overall a very light tasting brew that had very little flavor other than a very faint hoppy presence, which did not last long...
