I’m not really sure what this has to do with the Märzen style. It’s got a gold body with a short-lived head. The aroma is sweet and malty with a wee suggestion of earthy hops. The flavor is sweet and grainy, but the hops seem to disappear altogether. Drinkable, perhaps, but don’t pop one expecting a Märzen.

Headbanger (3878) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2007
12oz bottle-Pours slightly hazy orangish golden body with a head that dissipated into a small ring. Aroma of malt, a little hops and caramel. Taste was a light body with a taste of malt, pale lager, and a smalll amount of hops on the back end. Doesn’t really fit the style IMO but a decent tasting beer.

Hmmmm, this one is not much different from the amber. It really looks identical, and the basic profile is the same: an earthy crystal-malt driven amber, maybe a little maltier, maybe a little sweeter, but it seems that I’m splitting hairs really.

Poured from bottle. Slightly cloudy amber color with minimal head that quickly disipates leaving a slight bit of lacing. Aroma is weak and has hints of malt and citrus. Not the best Abita I’ve had but it’s ok. Flavor was a bit weak.

On tap. Not much head with a really good aroma. Very smooth to drink. Could use a little more flavor, but overall a good beer for fall.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear orangey-golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma was soft and rather artificial with caramel, dusty grains, and detergent with a pinch of lemon right at the end. The flavor had toasted, grainy caramel at the core with herbal and citrus hoppage surrounding.. it lost the detergent, but didn’t pick up anything really good. Lighter-bodied and slick on the palate.. never got its legs. This had no glaring flaws, but just wasn’t very good.

Bottle. Amber color. Cereal malt aroma, with hints of "Apple Jacks" and/or "Froot Loops" and some fresh grass. Flavor kind of underwhelming--mildly honeyed cereal malts mostly, with some meager hop traces in the back. However, seems weak and dull in body and character. Any real flavors dissolve quickly in the finish. Basically, a bland American Oktoberfest-style snoozer. At least there’s the elevated ABV, if that’s a plus.

Another that pops up in the party pack toward the end of the year. Abita tends to Americanize all of its styles. Buy a party pack 12 bottles and enjoy each with a friend. except the light, give that to the bum down the street.

Not too bad on its own. A little lighter in color than tradition. Body’s not too bad. Quaffable. Poured a nice head but that quickly setted down. Nice toffee flavors up front. A bit too carbonated. Decent finish.

Rated 8/8/06: Solid in all aspects, I enjoyed this fall seasonal in the middle of summer. Cracked the bottle and to my joy the freshness was still there. Mild sweet aroma, pours a dirty bronze color with a thin head and very little lacing. Creamy mouthfeel that has just enough fullness to it to be satisfying. Flavor is also mild and sweet, I detect a presence of honey mixed in with the malt. Enjoyable but not very exciting.
