Clear amber pour with a white head. Decent lacing. Aroma of grain and nuts. Caramel, grain, and nuts round out a decent but unimpressive flavor.

Clear pale amber with beige head; aroma of strong malt and a hint of maple; flavor is fresh malt; flava is malt and mustard; feels crisp yet full; finishes malty yet dry. pretty good beer!

BVery (6206) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Orange pour with minimal head. Would be tough to make this any waterier than it is. Everything is muted and bland. Not a good beer by any stretch.

Thisis12ptfont (838) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Weak aromas of maple and dark fruits. See-through amber with a quick dissipating foam. Slightly watery with flavors of caramel, brown sugar, and amber malts. Overall, very simple brew with no complexity. A little watered down. I’d give this a C- rating.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear, golden with a resilient white head. Smell is sweet, earthy, cereals, spicy. Taste is cereals, malt, syrup, wheat, spices, cinnamon, ginger. Finish is slightly earthy, mostly spicy. Medium bodied, foamy mouthfeel. Good!

Onionkid (366) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Bland aroma of malt. The taste has an artificial syrup flavoring to it, along with basically a bland, terrible overall malt flavor. An oily, water consistency and little to no finish. Jesus tapdancing Christ, Abita! I love you guys! You have the absolute best tours of your brewery! Great folks, usually solid beers...but damn if this isn’t the worst beer I’ve had since Purple Haze from you guys! Oh well, maybe the next one will be a winner! 6.1% alcohol.

Sample tasted on October 14th, 2012. I had no idea this was an Oktoberfest, thought it was just a fall style beer. Nice amount of malt, lighter palate per usual of abita. Decent, drinkable.

Fatehunter (1205) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Into a pint glass. Straw/golden color with a finger of head. Faint smell of grain, a little wet. Nice taste. Pretty well balanced without any standout flavors. Mildly bitter with a little honey at the end. Crisp body. Not the greatest, but certainly a great drink.

Patrickctenchi (3646) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours clear amber with a tall,off-white head. Scent is quite faint....malt. Taste is malty.....slightly nutty....A bit of caramel? maybe? Incredibly weak...a bit of hop, mild bitter...watery. Nothing terrible, just nothing good, either.

Bottle. Pours a light amber color with very little head. This is very malty, almost to the point of being sour. It’s definitely a tad bitter. Not one of my faves.
