A-- Poured a carmel color with a one finger head. moderate carbonation and a little bit of lacing.
S-- A little bit of roasted malts, a touch of pecan. Not much else.
T-- A little carmel, pecan and roasted malts.
M-- Well carbonated. The pecan comes through more in the mouthfeel but not all that apparent. Very light and not all that flavorful.
D-- Good drinkability but not much to this beer. not a good fall beer at all. A session beer with not a lot of flavor and not much else to it.

A weak example fo the German fall festbier. Some of the taste notes are there, but it has a very watered down mouthfeel. Decent, but wouldn’t past muster in Germany...

Bottle from Cavie. Light orange pour with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, and cinnamon. Taste is fallen leaves in in your dying, dirty, fall yard.

12 ounce bottle, poured an amber color, aromas of caramel, malt, and some bread. Flavor is the same, not the best take on this style, but certainly not the worst I’ve had either.

Moldy nutty aroma, average beer look with little head. Taste is very beer like with slight nutty flavor. An average beer that I won’t buy again. Sweet light hops.

Relatively bland beer with not a lot on the palate. Taste is simple but still enjoyable during a football game.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from my brother. Slightly hazy amber colored brew with a thin white head. The nose is mellow caramel and old fall leaves. The taste has some nice bread crust and a little bit of apples. There is a slightly dusty finish of old library books. This is ok, but nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber pour, mild German hopped bitterness and a bland aftertaste. Hopefully Abita was brewing a clone of a ho-hum Munich cousin. My last new O-Fest of 2011 sends the seasonal style out on a yawn.
