The Abita Summer Pils is good.....not great. It poured a cloudy yellow with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent carries a slight lemon waif. The taste is very dry some citrus at the front then a slight bitterness towards the back. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a nice easy drinking beer. Probably better for the warmer days.

Poured into a snifter.

A: A clear yellow with an off-white one finger head that quickly dissipated to light foam. Thready lacing.

S: Picking up grains, light citrus, bready malts.

T: Light, clean, citrus and malt combo with some grain action in between. As one other reviewer said, a nice in-between drink, a palate cleanser. Definitely a decent summer beer, sessionable.

M: Low to medium with medium carbonation. Light.

O: Not bad, not great. It is what it is. Shut up and drink it.

Pours an almost clear, pale gold producing a near 2 fingers of frothy, somewhat lasting, white head that recedes into a thin film leaving a good wash of webby lace. Aroma is thin pale cracker & biscuity pilsner malt, dry, lemon & a hint grass. Taste is subdued for the style led by biscuity & grain malts followed by dry herbal & lemony hops that fade in a disappointingly watery finish that produces a mildly bitter but lasting aftertaste. Mouthfeel is low-medium bodied, thin &smooth with some peppery carbonation.

Is it dark yellow or light amber? Some lacing in a pint glass. Pleasing, and minimal smell of citrus. Not heavy and very drinkable, but I think it is better as an in between cleanser. It's nice in the sun.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and good lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of hop, slight citrus, hint of wheat, and a hint of grass. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of hop, slight citrus, and a hint of wheat.
