Brewery: Abita Brewing Company
Style: Brown Ale
Date Poured: December 2008
This is the second year that Louisiana-based Abita Brewing has put out a Christmas Ale. Each year they change the recipe. This year it seems that it is a brown ale.
A crystal clear but lightly reddish copper topped by a dense, creamy tan khaki colored head. Lots of fine lacing down the glass. Lightly fruity caramel malt.
Crisp and light faint caramel malt, some herbal English-style hops. Light and crisp in the mouth with a very clean finish.
That's about it. A light, mildly refreshing ale in a style I'm not that crazy about to begin with. Not bad I suppose, just not much here.
