S.O.S. (Save Our Shore)

22 oz screen printed bottle. Abita’s charitable effort.
Best By 08/11 on the neck of the bottle – can a Pils with an ABV of 7.00% really feel fresh over one year from now? I dunno – maybe.
Pour offers a light, straw colored body with a fairly low level of carbonation. The head is minimal, but at least it hangs around to leave a small film on the surface of the beer and a decent amount of broken lace.
Smell is a neutral sweet one with nothing else to report.
Tastes are inoffensive but frankly they lack any kind of Saaz bite or bitterness. The beer comes through with some creamy, neutrality but in the end it is somewhat weak. A lack of crispness and a lack of dark, bitterness that I expect from the style.
The bottle calls this a “Weizen Pils” which I’m not sure means, but there is a light haze in the body. The bottle also boasts that there is sweet malt (true) and bitterness (not true).
Ultimately this beer is rather uninteresting and lacks most of the redeeming qualities of a serious Pils – never mind.
