Abita Amber while out to dinner at Me’lange in New Orleans. The beer pours a golden color with a frothy white colored head. The aroma consists of lemon, caramel, and toffee. The taste is very caramel forward with some toffee and a light lemon hop flavor. A grassy finish balances out the sweetness of the beer. The alcohol content is 4.5% ABV. While this isn’t a beer to seek out, it is a great beer to drink while in New Orleans since it is local. It is a solid tasting beer, but it won’t knock your socks off your feet.
