16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Lightly hazed, amber-toned body with no more than a half inch of ivory-hued head.

Smell: The latest Abita Select smells of liquor-dunked toast, golden syrup, vague notions of berries, a hint of citrus, and sugar-rich cotton candy.

Taste: Pale malts, zesty rye grain, and caramel candy. Heavy on the candy, as it's a bit too sugary. Wavering berry accents. Lemon and grapefruit citrus fruits join a boost in rye toast points. Medium-plus bitterness, but it's smoothed over by all the sweetness and booziness. More simple syrup, a bit of honey, more caramel, and just a bunch of sugar on the warming finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: A fatiguing beverage, as there's just too much residual sweetness present and a more than conspicuous alcohol character.

Growler from the Brew Pub.

Fair amount of hops, and malts, and a hint of breadiness.

Slight stale dark break taste. Malts and a slight bit of hops. There is an odd sweetness that presents itself.

Medium in body, slightly slick and creamy.

Easy to drink if that's your thing. The sweetness is odd in the end.

Rye beers are not my beers of choice.
