Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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.
