A: Pours a pale straw color with a small head that fades quickly to no real lacing.
S: Aroma of citrus, some malt sweetness and grain.

Poured into a pint glass out of a growler.
Pours a clear light gold with just a half finger white head. There is some wispy head on top but very little in the way of lacing or head retention for that matter.
Aroma is slightly sweet with lots of grain and hints of caramel and toast. A little bit of lemon and roasted malt and a yeasty note that is very typical of Abita.
Some sweetness up front in the flavor, more than i was expecting, along with quite a bit of grain. More bready malt along with lemon and toasted malt. Some grassy hops but they are buried far in the background along with a light bitterness. Moderately sticky mouthfeel with a little bit of lingering chalkyness.
Overall, I do like this beer but feel the sweetness could be toned down just a bit. Drinkability is somewhat limited by this but I could still put back a few of these.

Clear and a pale, yellowish colour with a creamy cap of white foam. Great head retention. Not one of my favourite hop aromas - really sulfury and floral, slight sweet and sour smell in the background. Taste is mild, slight hop flavour (again sort of floral) with a bit of malt, low bitterness, hint of citrus in the finish. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, decent texture for a light beer. Not bad overall, just not something I'm that into.
