This bottled brew poured a large sized head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was transparent softly carbonated and orange brown colored. The aroma was mold with malty bitter and fruity notes. The mouth feel was smooth malty and a mildly bitter biting finish. The flavors contained notes of malt hops caramel dough and other bitter notes.

Bottle. Medium sized white head and fine-small sized bubbles that mostly diminished. Fast-rising carbonation, transparent and a golden hue. Malty, hoppy, sweet and spicy aroma. Spicy, watery, malty, and an astringent taste. Smooth mouthfeel but thin. Light-medium bodied beer with sparse lacing.

hershiser2 (1208) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Golden orange... slighty hazy. Small head. Plain, ordinary beer aroma. A bit hoppy, but also a bit boring. Aberage beer at best.

(anyone check the pic here? Amarcord? Fellini this beer is NOT) This is OKAY, and not much better. If you happen upon one I hope it’s either fresh or that Abita has improved their filtration.

DocLock (7745) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2004
Dark straw colored, much lighter than other Marzens I've had. Smells lagery. Tastes slightly hoppy, slightly malty, a little watery. Finishes smooth.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2004
slightly mirky light orange color. White head. Malty wheaty aroma. More full bodied than expected. Somewhat rich malty, caramel flavor that finishes slightly hoppy. Although not the most full bodied oktoberfest I have tried, better than expected. Nothing is "off" in this beer and nothing is terribly "on."

This beer is an Oktoberfest? Pretty bland. Yellow pour with a whitish head. Slim malt aroma. Light taste, nothing special. An average beer.

A little on the light side, has some maltyness though not enough. I am convinced that given the clean water used at Abita that a German Pilsner would be their best beer.

raymow (798) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Nice amber color with a hint of orange (color not flavor). Tastes great. All of the Abita's that I've had have been clean,crisp and refreshing - must be the spring water. Good stuff!

jgb9348 (4664) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Copper colour with orange highlights and absolutely no head. Aroma of sugar, metal, malt and a very small amount of spices. Light to Medium-bodied; Watery taste with not much flavour. A bit of astringency towards the front end followed by faint malt and a low amount of spices near the end. Aftertaste is bland and uneventful. Overall, this one is...as everyone points out, simply not worth trying. A failure even for this style. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.
