This was my first Abita product, and is one of my favorite beers. It was paired with a muffaletta sandwich at the world-famous Central Grocery in New Orleans. It has a good balance of malty flavor with just a hint of hoppy bitterness. The rich amber color looks great in a glass, and it pours an ideal (in my view) head. It is a full bodied beer that feels velvety-smooth in the mouth and has a clean finish.

One of the best lagers I've ever had. The only Abita beer I'd had before this was Purple Haze, which wasn't that great, so this was a brilliant surprise.

A: Looks average, very little lacing and not much head.

S: A little bit of biscuit, lots of toast, a little bit of yeast.

T: Wish I could do this justice but as Vienna lagers/American ambers go this is among the best you'll ever find. A brilliant tasty malt up front and just the slightest hint of bitter fruit to go with it.

M: Great level of carbonation, just right, although it's a little bit thin (thinner than Sam Adams, for example.)

I can't get over how brilliant this tasted. I had it on tap at a bar because it was cheap and ended up hooked after my first glass. I really hope I can find it back home away from Louisiana.

Crisp and east to drink. Nice balance between an "all day" beer and a "dinner beer"
