3.63/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appears: Looks like honey in the glass, but contrary to what everyone else is posting I get little to no head or lacing. Probably due to the high alcohol, but this one could be more appealing.
Smells: Slightly malty pilsner smell, hint of spice with sweet smell I'd associate with a scottish or belgian beer.
Taste: Spicy and tart with some sweetness. I actually think this would be better as a drier beer. It finishes with a puckering bitterness similar to citrus pith, but otherwise not getting much hops aroma or flavor.
M: Slightly thicker than the average pilsner, but considering the wheat content and high gravity it is to be expected.
D: so so, I usually prefer drier beers with more hop aroma, but it's pretty good. Its good enough I will be drinking plenty to help the coast here so maybe when BP bails, we can actually clean up their mess over the next decade.
Serving type: bottle

Sampled at the brewery in the tasting room before a brewery tour today.
A nice pale gold/dark straw yellow in colour. White head is 1/2 inch on the pour and sticks around for awhile, leaving lines of lacing down the sides.
Aroma is pretty standard german pilsner. Biscuity with a grassy and noble hop background.
Flavour is the same as aroma. Biscuity/bready up front before the grassy/noble hops take over in the finish.
Pretty plain and just ok pilsner. Didn't do anything to grab me. Overall I think Abita's ales are better than their lagers, but that's just my opinion.
Serving type: on-tap
