Poured out a deep, clear brown with a nice ruby tint. The head is foamy and settles in at about one fingers worth, light tan in color and leaves some nice soapy lacing. The aroma is pretty average, with only slight, nondescript malt sweetness. The taste is much more robust, with nice nutty notes and additions of caramel. There's a bit of carbonation on the mouthfeel, but it has an overall smooth mouthfeel and finish. A solid brown ale.

Flavor starts with medium sweet roasted malt and bitter chocolate. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl. Ends medium sweet.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation
This is a good rendition of an English brown ale – meets all the criteria. I didn’t care for it when I first had it in 2006 and I still don’t – not my cup of tea.

I'm not sure what happened to this beer, but 10-15 years ago it was excellent. The stuff they call TurboDog now just does not taste the same. This was the beer that put Abita on the map, but now I find it undrinkable and lacking in the malty complexity it once held.

The Abita Turbo Dog was ok, it was not that bad. The taste was ok, and the smell was not too bad. This beer was not my favorite beer, but it was ok. The smell was ok as well. It was not my favorite beer, but it was worth trying. I am not one hundred percent sure of how it tasted because it has been a while since I tried this beer. But I am willing to try it again.
