Game Day Beer Review: Abita Brewing's Save Our Shore German-style Pilsner
(7.00% ABV). Pours a straw colored yellow into a pilsner glass. Abita's SOS shows lots of carbonation, and a head that just won't quit. The smell is mild hops, and even milder citrus. SOS' taste is bready, and only very mildly hoppy. It's a mellow pilsner that's incredibly easy to drink. Maybe it's because I'm on vacation as I write this review, but if this beer is sending out a message on conservation, I'm all in -- except as it relates to SOS: I want more. A-.
