Abita Amber ....

Today's beer is an Amber from Abita Brewing Company.  The twelve ounce bottle lists 4.5% ABV.  The web site shows 17 IBUs.

This beer poured with a thin head that was somewhere between off white and beige.  True to its name, beer color is amber.  The aroma has some bread, caramel and kind of a fermented (dark fruit?) note.  Taste is mild and maybe a little thin.  The bread and caramel are in the taste as well, but I am not getting the fermented note.  A slightly higher than average carbonation in the mouth feel.  Dry, grassy and metallic on the finish and aftertaste.
