02/14/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Abita is all over town this week for Fat Tues./Mardi Gras. I find this on the cloying side. Leaves both an aftertaste & 'residue' on the tongue that wears out it's welcome. I guess my expectations of a beer are based on the definition of a good guest; nothing should be left but pleasant memories. This one needs a chaser. No need to "release the hounds" but a cool glass of water would be in order.

Pours a light mostly clear amber. A white head burns off quickly leaving just a thin disc in parts. The aroma is light, with nice fruit and biscuit notes. The Taste has nice malt tones, with light fruit and bread showing some nice depth. It has a light weight and a thinner feel.
