Just a totally killer pilsner - good weight, tremendous snap at the front of a sip, great, clean finish. Had it in a pint glass, out of a can, can't weight til it hits the shelves at my local.

Worried the ratings, here, are from people who don't like pilsners - if that's something you like, get this while you can.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Smyrna, GA. The appearance is a clear gold color with a small white head. The aroma is hops and citrus. The taste follows the nose. a real good pilsner.

Good pilsner. Hazy, good carbonation, nice bitterness the finish.

I'm not sure what's going on with the low ratings for this one but this is a killer pilsner.... Crisp, clean, and refreshing... The hops are slightly bitter yet floral in nature... The malts, slightly sweet and do a superb job of balancing the Spalt... Abita makes great summer beers and this one is no exception... Perfect for hot weather... definitely a repeat buy for me... Great beer

12 oz bottle pours a surprisingly hazed gold color with an ample cap of stark white head. Good retention and decent lace.

Nose is grassy hops and freshly crushed grains...just as a nice pils should smell. Abita knows lagers and this is a well done lager though not the traditional saaz I am thinking.

Taste is more akin to a German pilsener than Austrian...the hops more grassy than herbal. Malts are perfectly done - they are light and grainy but manage long lasting flavor and a moderate mouthfeel. Bone dry and refreshing. I am pleased with this offering, a welcome addition to the seasonal rotation. I will pick up at least one or two more sixers before fall hits.

Pours out to a generous white head that laces well. Deep golden color. Aroma suggests dry hopping with fresh noble hop aromas balanced with sweet pale pilsner and carapils. Flavor is hop-forward with a nice malt backdrop. Finishes bittersweet and bracingly crisp. Mouthfeel is correct to style. Overall, a tasty, quaffable Americanized German Pilsner. I enjoy traditional German and English hop varieties and this beer delivers on the German noble hop promise. Great choice.
