look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a nice deep amber with two fingers of white head from a 12 oz. can into a pint glass.

Smell: Very malty with sweetness and a nice caramel tinge to it, also sense a bit of floral aroma in this.

Taste: Amber malt and some caramel notes with a bready grainy character as well. A solid tasting beer that goes down nicely.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with solid carbonation which combine to make a creamy, smooth drinking lager that I could drink for a while.

Overall: This is a very solid lager and perhaps Abita's top year-round offering. A good sessionable amber lager that I could drink a few of for sure.
