Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Mitchster on 03-15-2002

Golden is a crisp, clean continental lager. Just four ingredients are all it takes: American malt, Mt. Hood hops, German lager yeast and pure Abita Springs water. As the name implies, Abita Golden has a brilliant gold color. Its flavor makes this light lager the perfect match for Louisiana Creole food.

A- Pours a yellow and the foam cling fizzles away to a thin ring around the glass as well as light foam covering most of the surface.

S- Smells like green apple, and fresh grains.

T- A hint of wet cardboard. Definitely leans more toward the malts since there are barely any hops to be found.

AT - Good balance at the end.

Bright golden color with a thin head with short retention.
Predominant initial grainy malt aroma followed by lemon sourness.
Similarly, malty flavor with lemony notes and mild spices.
Hints of sulfur and spices.
Light body with mild carbonation.
As usual Abita brews very refreshing with high drinkability, I guess that reflects what the local staggering hot climate demands. But this is way too bland, which is fine they want to get a piece of the mass brews with something better.
