3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, purchased from Party Source for $1.45. Clear amber-orange color, minimal head, some lace. Some roast to the moderate malt aroma, whole wheat. Crisp carbonation, very drinkable. Savory taste. Not terribly interesting. I can hardly tell the difference between a lot of these oktoberfest beers, but this one just barely stands out.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A nice looking copper colored beer with an almost non-existent white head. The aroma is entirely malty, some nuttiness and roasted coffee. The flavor is thin but has notes of weak malt. Overall, nothing memorable, just average malt characteristics.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Slightly hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Very mild aroma with some vegetable hints and some dry malts. Slightly sweet and rather balanced flavor with a little bit of hops trying to come up through the dry malts. Finishes clean and a bit watery.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(12oz bottle). Pours copper color with nice off-white head. Active carbonation. Aroma of sour raisins, musty basement. Taste is sweet with metallic notes. Thin bodied with watery mouthfeel. Fail.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a golden body with an off white head and light lacing. Grainy and malty body. A bit thin with a watery body. Some cereal grain notes, a hint of peach or some light fruit tone. So so.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a somewhat dark brown with a light tan head and not too much lacing as it goes down. Nose is pretty plain with hints of nuttiness, caramel, and a bit of bread. Taste is similar and the nuttiness is a bit off putting. Mouthfeel is somewhat astringent and light. Not terribrly drinkable. Im not normally a fan of many things by Anita but I’ve liked a lot of heir offerings more than this.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is clear gold with some orange. Better head than the Pecan. Tastes like an Octoberfest. Lightish but enough malt to make me happy. Pretty smooth on the palate. Not a great beer by any means, but very approachable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Abita Fall Fest has a medium, off-white head and a clear orange or amber appearance. Carbonation is moderate, with minimal lacing. The aroma is faint, and really, non-existent, except for a water smell. Taste is pretty good, with some mild sweetness, and some slight barley can be picked up, with a tiny hop aftertaste. Mouth-feel, as with most Abita beers, is light and watery, and Abita Fall Fest finishes wet and fairly refreshing. Overall, although the beer is on the bland side, it is a pretty good offering.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a transparent amber with a nice white head. Aroma is mild but pleasant, fruit & grassy hops, a little honey. Crisp in the mouth, medium-light bodied, little bitter & sweet elements, maybe a little pumpkin pie/cinnamon action, but doesn’t really offer too much, finishes sweetly and rather quickly. Just ok.
