I know that a lot of people scored this beer in an average, mediocre way, but this is big pilsner. Not an average german pilsner. I think the brewers intended this to be bold and in your face, rather than a tradritional german pilsner. So I will judge accordingly. Might I add that this is almost an imperial pilsner... so here we go.
A-Pours a hazy light golden color with a huge creamy white persistant head that leaves excellent lattice work in it's trails.
S-The aroma is quite dull at cold temps, but if you would wait and see that as this beer warms, it is full of aromatic sweet doughy malts and soft and delicate floral hops. Pretty straight foward and simple as a pilsner should be.
T-Very similar to the smell with sweet doughy malts up front with an earthy/floral hoppiness that lingers into a very soft clean bitterness.
M-The mouthfeel seems a little too sweet and smooth and not dry enough for me... The carbonation is very full and right for the style. But I'd like a kind of a dry finish for this pilsner.
D-This beer being 7%abv is very drinkable. And I highly recommend you give the good cause as well. This beer seems to be going fast so go get you some my fellow beer geeks. And Cheers!

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
