2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

Clear gold with a decent size foam head that dissolves quickly. Weak malt aroma with very little carbonation. Thin malty taste. Finishes bland.

Bottle, Seriously a Marzen, I don’t think so it really lakes the malty character of the style, as well as body. This is no Ayinger.

Do they make anything worth drinking... 12 oz bottle to glass. Everything is underwhelming. Minimal aroma _ malt maybe. Faintest pumpkin color possible taste is slightly worse than nothing. Not Nast just nothing. Waste of ....
