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.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A light straw colored ale that is thin in body and no lasting head after initial pour taste is flat and not impressive and on the hoppy side. Drinkable only in the sense of being low in alcohol content and not very refreshing. Worth a try at a beer festival but otherwise not a great overall impression.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Very Light straw color with a white head.
Aroma: Clean malty aroma.
Flavor: Clean malty taste, with a non hoppy, slightly sweet toasty finish. Light bodied, slightly sharp carbonation.
Overall: A nice clean tasting beer. Light enough to drink all summer long. This is not your watered down TV light; has a decent flavor.
