Abita Amber Beer Review

The Abita Amber Beer is a refreshing, smooth, and slightly caramel Munich style lager.

One of my favorite beers to enjoy at all times.

Abita Amber is brewed with caramel malts and pale malts with German Perle hops. The beer is fermented with German lager yeast. The Abita Amber beer has a unique, smooth, and malty flavor with a rich amber color. Try this amber beer with dishes flavored with cajun spices. Also great with most southern food, spicy food or tomato based dishes.

You can also enjoy an Abita Amber beer almost any time for any occasion. This amber beer has a very refreshing flavor profile. Seafood and other meat dishes would go great with the amber beer’s slight caramel hints.

Abita Brewing Company brews the Abita Amber beer in vibrant Louisiana. The water is collected prestine artesian water right from Abita Springs itself. Water is obviously an important ingredient in any beer. And from how smooth and tasty this beer is, it really attests to how great the water from Abita Springs is.

Abita Amber Beer Back Panel Description New Orleans Natural All Brews List

Abita Amber is fermented with German lager yeast, which makes a very clean beer throughout. This amber beer is brewed with pale and caramel malt. The water used to craft Abita Amber is actually from Abita Springs located in Louisiana. This water is pristine artesian water and offers a very clean and refreshing taste.

All in all, very good water to make beer.

It would be best to use a tall pils, pint, or an Euro lager glass to hold this delicious beer. But you know what? I love drinking it straight from the bottle!

This beer has a relatively light amber color.
