Abita "Amber"
Abita Brewing Company - Covington, Louisiana USA
Vienna Lager (ABV 4.5) (IBU 17)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a clear honey brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown rocky head that had decent retention and a nice amount of spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a toasted light bread malt and a sweet yeast with notes of caramel, honey and a mild fruity ester.

The taste was malty sweet with a pronounced caramel presence throughout with the finish having a good crisp hoppiness and a smooth lager feel. The flavor was short lived, evaporating a short time after the swallow.

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

Overall a pretty straight forward Amber Lager with a great drinkability and a pleasant taste...
