Poured from a draft into a plastic cup on a riverboat on the Mississippi River in New Orleans. Color was murky light brown. There was roughly an inch of head, maybe slightly more. Lots of lacing on the top that lasted throughout each pour. Some film on the sides, but not that much. The plastic probably contributed to that.
First smell that came to mind was roasty malts. Bready and grainy as well.
Tasted fairly similar to the nose. Roasty, nutty malts. Definitely an amber. Pleasantly bitter.
Full body. Thin texture (from memory). Lively (moderate) carbonation. Abrupt finish (from memory).
Not a bad beer overall. It was either this or Miller Lite on the riverboat and of course I stuck with the Abita Amber. It also felt right drinking this on the Mississippi.
Serving type: on-tap

Amber pours an Amber color with not much head. The aroma is rather weak, but some pale malts come through. The taste is much of the same, pale malt flavors, no hops, and very weak and light flavor. Carbonation is okay, but overall weak flavors. Overall it's pretty boring and average.
