look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: 1" off white sudsy head recedes at a moderate rate and leaves decent lacing. Amber color (of course). Moderate carbonation bubbles.
Aroma: very pleasant sweet bread and caramel malt aroma. Also pick up a hint of floral hops. Mouthfeel: light to medium body, slightly sticky, refreshing, dry finish.
Flavor: taste is in harmony with the aroma. A nice malty brew dominated by the caramel flavor with some cracker and a mild hop for some balance.
Overall: A very enjoyable brew from Abita.

This is a very nice example of the style. Aroma is lightly toasted malt. No hops or yeast. Color is a beautiful light amber. Sparkly. Medium light body wit moderate carbonation. Taste is grainy rich and malty while staying light and not overly sweet. Finish is a little sweet - should be a little dryer. Refreshing but not boring.
