12 ounce stubby bottle. Abita bills this as an amber but it pours a little more gold in color. Pretty decent head with a nice amount of foam. Smell is slightly skunky with an unmistakable lager smell. Beyond the skunk smell there's a decent amount of caramel and cereal in the nose with some mineral notes as well. Light mouthfeel, a little heavy handed in the carbonation. Wish there was more to the body of this beer. It just doesn't really stand up, and seems like it's missing ... something. The caramel taste comes rolling in but washes to the sides of the palate and is chased by water. I get that Abita is proud of their water, I'm just not sure if showcasing it in your beer is the way to go.
