Year Round

Amber is a Munich style lager brewed with crystal malt and Perle hops. It has a smooth, malty, slightly caramel flavor and a rich amber color. Abita Amber was the first beer offered by the brewery and continues to be our leading seller. Amber is Abita’s most versatile beer for pairing with food. It has been voted "best beer" in numerous New Orleans reader polls and is used frequently in recipes of great Louisiana chefs.

Because of its smooth, malty flavor, try it with smoked sausages, Louisiana boudin, or even with caviar. It’s great with crawfish and Cajun food. You might also enjoy it paired with a spicy gumbo or tomato-based pasta sauce. It also goes well also with fried catfish dipped in a tart, lemony tartar sauce. Parmesan, Pecorino and Romano cheeses are good pairings with Abita Amber.

An amber look for sure.

Slight sweet caramel smell to it.
Taste
Malty and caramel-y.
Feel
Crisp to prickly feel.
Drinkability
Crisp feel to the tongue, malts and caramel to the taste, with also a hint of caramel through the nose, and a great amber look. Would definitely grab another bottle right after this.

Look
Color: Dark honey; amber red
Clarity: clear
Head: short lasting; lacing is okay
Smell
Some roasted malt and caramel; very little hop scent
There might have been some flaws in the beer because it smelled like wet cardboard.
Taste
The malt flavor does not linger and finishes with a bland flavor.
Feel
It has a light body with light carbonation, but it feels crisp. It finishes averagely and kind of dry.
Drinkability
It was crisp, but lacking a lot of flavor. I would have to drink this on tap if I wanted to enjoy it again. It was lacking balance, but it might have been due to a flaw when handling the beer.
