This one was a grower. I wasn’t immediately impressed, but started drinking it by the bucket by the time the Christmas Ale rolled around. Has a light, malty flavor with a hint of caramel.

kidmartinek (3507) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Pours orangish light amber, but its cloudy and has a tall head thats nice. Aroma of sweet citrus and orange. Flavor is balanced with wheat malt and hops and has some citrus sweetness added. Mouthfeel is over carbonated a little bit but not too bad. Bite lingers on the tongue in the finish. A very appropriate beer for the time of year.

Smells and looks fine. This a pretty good oktoberfest. Not very grainy, sits well in the stomach. Good, just not all that interesting. like most in this style.

Nice amber color with a hint of orange (color not flavor). Tastes great. All of the Abita's that I've had have been clean,crisp and refreshing - must be the spring water. Good stuff!

ppcpilot (21) - Port Allen, Louisiana, USA - NOV 3, 2002
Barely amber, ok head that lasts longer than expected, light lacing. Light hoppy aroma. Flavor is nice balance between mostly malt and a mild hoppy finish. Bubbly and slightly creamy on the palate. Overall, a nice brew I would order out with dinner to complement the food without filling you up. Would go good with an oyster poboy.

A nice Marzen. A hint of caramel malt, roasted malt, toast and spice. The finish is mildly chocolate and floral.
