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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured a sharply clear, dark gold color, plenty of lively carbonation producing a thick, chunky, white head. Honey and cereal aroma; toffee. Tastes of warm bread crust, slightly sweet, and finishes with a crisp hop bitterness. Medium-light body; crisp finish.

A very satisfying, malty lager with just the right touch of hop bitterness and mild sugary sweetness. Nicely balanced and very refreshing.
