Abita - Turbodog Beer

Dead Soldier
Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Abita Turbodog Beer
Abita Brewing Company, LLC

Abita Springs, LA USA
Est. 1986

Brain Damage Quotient = 5.6 % ABV

Postmortem Brew Review
Deep brown color.
Malted barley, chocolate and toffee tones in aroma.
Tall, actively bottom forming head that is frothy and caramel in color.

Small clumps of foam cling to the glass.
Full bodied, yet not over powering.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
This little sleeper of a beer drinks like a good brown ale. It can be recommended as a starting point if you've never experienced a brown ale. Maybe you are afraid of heaviness or overpowering hoppiness. You'll get none of that from Abita. This is pleasant and easy to drink without being filling. Laisser les bons temps rouler!

It's no secret that a famous celeb chef (think "Bam!") loves this Louisiana beer; not only in his cooking recipes, but also on occasion, straight from the fridge. Certainly
'lagniappe.' The Willamette hops are not too 'in your face' powerful, but oh so right. It is distinctly different from other brown ales.

Ca c'est bon! There's no denying it, you should get some of this tahyo and you'll see what I mean.
