Bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with medium creamy white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is honey malt and fruit. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet hop and honey flavor with nice lingering light dry finish. A good marzen from Abita.

Very rich bronze color with a tight, whipped cream head. Aroma is bready, slightly fruity (ale-like). Flavor is toasty, bready malt with some fruit and caramel. Bitterness is focused and has a sweet/tart character. Palate is soft and creamy.

When I poured the bottle it looked like fall in a glass. Great amber color with a finger’s worth of creme colored suds, moderate retention. Aromas of light citrus and caramel, almost like a wheat beer. The palate is a bit hollow, but the flavor is good with a mellow bitter finish. Could be a bit fuller bodied, but I like it.

On tap. Not much head with a really good aroma. Very smooth to drink. Could use a little more flavor, but overall a good beer for fall.

Aroma of caramel and toffee, deep amber with a decent head. Moderately carbonated, yet deep malt backbone. I don’t see the strong hop character Abita claims, but it is good. I always lean a little right on Oktoberfests. Not a must have, but it ain’t bad.

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.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Moldy nutty aroma, average beer look with little head. Taste is very beer like with slight nutty flavor. An average beer that I won’t buy again. Sweet light hops.
