The Abita Brewing Company is in Abita Springs, Louisiana. This beer is their charitable effort to help restore the damage caused to the Gulf Coast by the oil spill. Seventy-five cents of each bottle goes to this cause.
The beer is 7.0% ABV and is made with Pilsner and wheat malts. It is hopped and dry-hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It pours a dark yellow golden in color, with a tornado of carbonation. There is a tall half-inch head of pure white foam, thick and creamy. The aroma is malted golden grain, and grassy and aromatic hops. The taste is mild, creamy golden grain with a brassy, grassy, and bitter finish of biting hops. It is well-carbonated, but drinks very smooth and creamy. This is a good American-style pilsner.
