Poured into a snifter.

4.0 A: Clear light amber color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is good and a small ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Grassy hops with a hay component. Malts are sweet, lightly grainy, and with a subtle to moderate caramel component. Simple, clean, and pleasant.

3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Grass and hay from the hops. Perhaps a touch of herbalness as well. Lightly grainy, lightly biscuity malts with a subtle sweetness and a light caramel component. Again, quite clean.

3.5 M: Light body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess for how light the body is. Super smooth.

4.0 D: A well crafted, clean lager. Not a ton of flavor, but it's definitely an easy drinker.

12 oz stubby bottle, best by date on neck.

bright clear copper in color, with thin bright white head. decent retention. great aroma of clean toasted malt, earthy hops.

taste is slightly sweet caramel, a little spicy herbal notes. thin and fizzy, easy to drink.

overall - a great flavorful lager.

This beer pours a clear, orange color with 1/2 inch head and no lace. It's aroma is of bread crust, honey, and grass. The flavor has notes of honey, dough, nuts, and sweet malt. The mouthfeel is light. Abita Amber is a good beer, smooth, refreshing, and very drinkable. A great session beer. Recommended.
