Abita's beers have been sort of hit-or-miss with me. The Turbodog's okay, the Amber's gross out of the bottle. The Light is surprisingly drinkable, if not memorable. Never got to try the Restoration. But I saw this on the shelf this weekend, and it piqued my interest, so I bought just one sixer to give it an honest try. Now I wish I'd bought two. This is delicious! Golden yellow, with and effervescent head. Crisp and malty, without a hint of the cloying sweetness that wrecks so many American pilsners. This is a perfect summertime quaffable; if you can find it, buy it.
