Notes/Commercial Description:

The end result is a brilliant gold ale with a rich body, mild bitterness and a snappy fresh citrus hop flavor and aroma.

I am a huge fan of all Abita brands.
I picked this up at Green Life in Asheville, NC.
An aggressive pour yielded a one finger head that receded pretty quick.
Hazy golden in color.
Not a whole lot of aroma with the beer. Smells a little bitter.
This is not a complex beer at all. Not very hoppy for a pale.
Extremely drinkable.
It is a clean beer that goes very well with pizza.
I will probably not buy a six of this again because I have so much to choose from but I have enjoyed this easy-drinking selection from Abita.

12-ounce stubby poured into a shaker pint glass yields a clear golden amber body capped with a finger of fine white foam that recedes to a ring leaving swatches of thin lacing on the glass.

Smell is malty and dry with a nice dose of grassy, herbal hops.

The taste matches the smell almost seamlessly. Dry, crisp, and malty up front, the drink is punctuated with spicy notes of herbal hops with a little grass and is finished by a nice clean bitterness.

Medium-bodied and crisp with a nice clean finish, the beer is very drinkable and refreshing.
