Abita Golden Lager
Beer temp. 42.8F – 6.8C, ABV 5.25%. Initial pour gave a 2 inch fizzy white head and a yellow body. The head dissipated slowly with virtually no lacing. Malt aroma was cereal and honey, hops had a citrus aroma and misc. aroma was of vegetables, mainly corn. The initial flavor was a light sweetness and light bitterness. The finish flavor was light sweet, light bitter and a light tartness with maybe a touch of lemon. There was no head lacing and the mouthfeel was dry with no body lacing. I found it repeatable and drinkable but not memorable.
Nothing terribly remarkable about it. I must admit I’m a little prejudiced as it’s brewed in LA. So I probably gave it a bonus point or two it may not deserve.
Son Beer Love wanted to offer some food pairings and I must admit I’m no gourmet – in the words of the late Great Grandma Beer Love “I like food I don’t care what you call it,” I’ll offer this: Outdoors on a 90 degree day with a bucket full of this beer on ice, a shrimp po boy with remoulade and a big bag of Zapp’s cajun crawtator chips and for beserk a tiny piece of praline cheesecake.
