Abita "Strawberry Harvest Lager"
Abita Brewing Company - Covington, Louisiana USA
American lager (ABV 4.2%) (IBU 13)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a cloudy medium golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white pillowy head that receded slowly down to a thick film with a medium collar and had excellent sheets of streaky lacing.

The aroma was pretty basic with the scent of strawberries almost overpowering everything else, but I did notice a bit of grain malts and a mild sweaty yeast.

The taste was mildly sweet and had a light malty feel with a hint of strawberry and a mild touch of grain throughout. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, with a mildly bitter and slightly fruity aftertaste.

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

Overall a smooth easy to drink Fruit Lager with a nice low ABV. This is a brew that is refreshingly fruity and would be great on a hot summer’s day...
