This stuff is omnipresent in New Orleans. It's a great old standby in this town. I wish the establishments near me would carry the local stuff as reliably. Pours a dark amber color with a beige head that lingers and leaves a fine cap and thick lace around the glass. Aroma is a chewy, biscuity, malt smell, and the flavor matches it fairly well. A smooth and creamy mouthfeel makes this one easy to sip for hours. Very tasty, well-balanced, and easy to drink.
Serving type: on-tap

I kept hearing about Abita Beer, but the only one I have tried was the Purple Haze, which re-affirmed my dislike of fruit in beer. So I picked up some Abita Amber at my LBS, thinking this is a chance to rate the beer for what it is.
IMHO, this is what beers like Budweiser should taste like. It's overall average-ness makes me wonder, why am I paying premium-beer price for what average beer should taste like?
The Abita does look nice, I really like the colour. Everything else is just average, except the price.
