I expected more from Abita - usually a reliable micro. No head to the pour - looks like weak, watered down iced tea. Has a bit of a funky metallic, rotten vegetable aroma to it and the metallic character carries over to the flavor and the palate. Searching - but cannot find anything positive to say about this one.

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

Pours clear gold with very little head. Aroma- apple, caramel, buttery biscuit. Taste is sweet and fruity with a breadiness. Medium light body, medium carbonation.

The beer pours light amber golden with a nice foamy and creamy head. The aroma is light, a bit sweet and crisp. The flavor of a lightly bittered crisp marzen with not much else going on.

rougeau13 (1940) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Very pale, clear, orange-amber. Aroma of light malt and bread. Taste is ok, but really weak, just watered down malts and light sugar. Thin and a little buttery. Better than most pale lagers, but seriously unimpressive.

(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.

BVery (5930) - 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.

Aurelius (4028) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2002
Disappointing. The beer has some sort of vegetable-potato-funky grain thing going. Orangish gold. Medium body. Long peanutty-potato, mildly bitter finish. Appearance dings for the label and the screw-off cap. Probably OK with food, but non-stellar by itself.

Only two more Oktoberfest beers left in my fridge: Christian Moerlein Oktoberfest and Abita Fall Fest. So, tonight I will drink these two brews and that will be the end of Oktoberfest 2006 for me... The Abita Fall Fest is a clear, orange color. It has moderate carbonation and a foamy light orange head. The aroma is generic malt. The flavor is palt malt with a really strange taste that I can’t put my finger on. Whatever it is, its unpleasant and somewhat repulsive (maybe its just overly earthy or a strange hop bitterness). Once that passes, the finish has a light caramel flavor balanced with a soft hop bitterness. The palate is a bit thin, but it isn’t too fizzy. Overall I am pretty disappointed with this Abita offering. This is probably the worst of their beers (that I’ve had). The Christian Moerlein Oktoberfest was much better than this one, but for a really nice American micro Oktoberfest, give Goose Island’s or Samuel Smith’s a try... 12 oz bottle (Best before 1/30/07), $1.70 from The Party Source.

very boring. A little watery, a little bland. Is not a good representation of a marzen. t does go down real smooth though. Pass on this one, I wish I did.
