Short, 12oz bottle. Light brown / copper color. White ring. Aroma of beef barley soup. Toasted barley malts, earthy nose. Smells like an Oktoberfest German toasted lager. Tastes is clean, toasted malts. Light-medium bodied. Very sessionable! Best Abita I’ve had in a while... I could drink a few of these tasty things. Prost! (3828)

rosenbergh (8288) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Draught at the Abita Brewpub, Abita Springs, LA. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Grainy malt in a quite mild aroma. Sweetish malt, notes of hops and grainy dryness in the flavour. Drinkable but a bit boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is very much an Octoberfest beer but it’s not as distinctive as others I have tried. The beer is very much a Marzen style beer but there is no real flavor. There is nothing that distinguishes the beer from other Octoberfest style beers.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 Appearance: very clear copper color, pours with a medium beige creamy head that fades quickly Aroma: very malty, caramel, bread, creamy, hops are trying to stay relevant Taste: very malty in a grain type of way, caramel malt, very light hop finish Palate: light and crisp in your mouth, high carbonation, leaves mouth dry, grain aftertaste Overall: lots of grain flavor, actually one of the better lagers as they are usually bland to me, highly drinkable

Pretty impressive head for an Okto. Good retention. Amber color. Smell is toasted malt, but rather acidic to the nose also. Taste follows suit - almost a bit of sourness mid-taste that is a little off-putting and not fitting for the style. Also too watery on the palate - Oktos are light-bodied, but they should have a certain creaminess that sits well on the tongue. Drinkable, and has other features fitting to the style, but there are far better out there. Finally, I’m amused that Abita thinks this has a "strong hop character." It’s an Okto! Few are hoppy, and for the ones that are, like Marshall’s, this is not anything like them.

Average at best. The flavor is just not there, contradicting the 6+% ABV. Some malty notes, but you have to seek them out. C/C+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear gold with a decent size foam head that dissolves quickly. Weak malt aroma with very little carbonation. Thin malty taste. Finishes bland.

Tap at Redfish Grill, New Orleans. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium-short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is caramel and melanoidin malt, light spicy hops and clean. Flavor is malt dominant, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.
