Very rich bronze color with a tight, whipped cream head. Aroma is bready, slightly fruity (ale-like). Flavor is toasty, bready malt with some fruit and caramel. Bitterness is focused and has a sweet/tart character. Palate is soft and creamy.

More malty and more hop bite than Abita Golden... not bad I guess. Most of these Abita beers just don’t excite me.

This is OK, but firrst of all... Octoberfest ??? Comeon.... maybe Octoberfest light? Not a bad beer, a litle malty, bready, a little note of sourness... nothing special.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Barely any aroma, an orangy-yellow body and a thin white head. This tastes like any old lager. I was expecting something more impressive from Abita, but this is just a beer. Good for fall, I guess.

Orange beer with a tall and foamy white head. Malty aroma with some toffee tones. Roasted malt, nut and caramel in the flavor and a little spices also. OK!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark golden color with a touch of haze. Small dense off white head. Mild toasted malt aroma. Thinner creamy feel. Light toasty malt flavors with a mild floral/herbal hops finish. Mild malt linger. Really not much of a marzen, but a drinkable light amber lager.
