1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden-yellow color with a small white head, musty grainy corn aroma. Stale light malt flavor, some hops noticable in the finish along with some sourness, light bodied and watery, not even worth a try.

Bottle. Aroma of spice and rather bland. Dark golden body with white head. The spicey bitterness was just to much as allother flavor of beer was not found till last gulp. Rather bland experience.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

Does Abita brew a good beer? I’m beginning to think not. This marzen actually smelled like a bit of pooh, nutty poop. Not joking. Taste is bad upfront, but the aftertaste is about the only redeeming quality of this beer, it was nutty like a good nut brown ale.

Bottle- I think that I have figured out their recipe for this beer: Mix equal parts Abita amber and water, bottle, try to pass it off as a fall beer.

This one is a poor example of an oktoberfest beer. not interesting at all. Smells skunky/astringent, light orange hue, medium hops and low malt, light crisp, drank a half and the dumped and moved onto another..

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Absolutely no head. Orange in color. Flavorwise, it sort of reminds me of Dos Equis Amber. This beer is more or less dominated by a stale metallic flavor. No redeeming virtue.
