Bottle. Pours a hazy light amber with a short white head. Aroma and taste of caramel, grains, faint nuts and some breadiness. A bit thin and watery with a slightly dry finish. Tabednar (139) - - DEC 13, 2011

Relatively bland beer with not a lot on the palate. Taste is simple but still enjoyable during a football game. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle from my brother. Slightly hazy amber colored brew with a thin white head. The nose is mellow caramel and old fall leaves. The taste has some nice bread crust and a little bit of apples. There is a slightly dusty finish of old library books. This is ok, but nothing special. JFGrind (2046) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Amber pour, mild German hopped bitterness and a bland aftertaste. Hopefully Abita was brewing a clone of a ho-hum Munich cousin. My last new O-Fest of 2011 sends the seasonal style out on a yawn. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Tasted on 10/28/11 from a 12oz bottle purchased in a mix-a-six pack at my local Kroger. Pours a light honey color with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to rocky lace, leaving thin lacing along the inside of the glass. The nose is caramelized bread malt with just a tinge of underlying vegetal hops. The flavor is not much better, with the bread malt, a vegetal note, and a hint of caramelized orange peel. The body is medium with lively carbonation, and a medium vegetal and caramelized orange peel finish.

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.. Drake (13728) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Draft sample at the 2011 Fall NOVA Beerfest, 10/22/11. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, nutty notes and a fruity finish. The taste is toasted malts, nuts, fruity notes and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Decent. desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Bottle. Nothing bad but I’m just not a big Marzen fan. Forgettable. dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2011
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. dfinney23 (3269) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Some caramel and malt. Nice but nothing special.
