Review:
The beer pours a clear copper with amber hues and a fairly rich off white head.

The nose is very inviting with sweet caramel malt aromas and floral hop notes.

What a nice first sip. There is a little harshness but all and all a nice amber lager.

The taste starts out with a touch a malt sweetness up front. That is followed by a cleansing effervescence as this beer washes over the tongue in the middle of the sip. The back end is very easy drinking with an almost effortless swallow. There is a perceived robustness that builds during the swallow into the finish. The finish is very nice with light caramel malt flavors and just a touch of floral hops to dry without bittering. The final aftertaste is just a touch of caramel malt sweetness.

All and all this is a very nice Amber Lager; I am really enjoying this beer.

There is a touch of that typical lager harshness.

B | Abita Amber is a very good Amber/Vienna Lager with nice light caramel malt flavors, a refreshing effervescent mouthfeel followed by a clean dry finish.
