Abita Seersucker Summer Pils

June 30, 2014

As the heat and humidity climb across the country, it’s become clear that Summer has finally arrived. It wasn’t so long ago though that that signified it was time for fine upstanding men to switch from dark heavy suits to light colors and seersucker. I love Abita beers, especially their lighter stuff that is perfect for balmy weather, but I became particularly excited for the Seersucker Summer Pils if only for its name.

The Seersucker Pils pours a wonderful golden color with just a touch of haze to it. Its scent is mostly bright citrus with a hint of grassy hops underneath that perfectly captures a mild summer afternoon. The beer has a perfectly light body and is smooth going down making it perfect for drinking in the heat.

In terms of flavor it is light and refreshing. A simple biscuity malt fills out most of the profile, with a strong lemony zest that falls well short of making this beer too sour or sweet. Finally a mild combination a citrus and grass hopes provide an additional burst of flavor that leans in perfectly to a clean finish.

There’s a lot of summer beers out there, and while this might not be my all time favorite summer beer, it is definitely one I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for in the weeks to come.
