Once named America’s best beer (albeit by Stuff Magaine), Abita Turbodog is an English style brown ale. The aroma is full of toffee and that mineral rich hard water sometimes found in other English brown ales.
The mouthfeel is surprisingly light, with toffee and roasted (but not toasted) grain as the dominant flavors. The hard water character is there, as well, along with a bit of citrus from the hops.
It’s not bad, but the flavors seem a bit muddled and subtle. I’ve had this before and I remember thinking it was great, so I’m wondering if this is an off batch. It might be.
