Appearance - Orange-golden(Amber) color to it. Thin head off white color.

Aroma - Nice hint of malts and hops..

Taste - Malt, hops and a bit of chocolate.

Mouthfeel - full body, not too much carbonation

Drinkability - I really enjoy this beer. I look forward to September when it is available. It's inexpensive which makes it a great beer for the price.

A - Looks like a nice Oktoberfest. Dark brown amber with an inch of head. Nice.

S - Slight hops and malts with a bit of caramel sweetness. Pretty decent.

T - wow a pretty smooth taste! Not very much caramel but a light bitterness which is appreciated. Slight hops and malts. Plan yet sweet. Lovely.
'
M - Light to medium. Very good.

D - I actually liked this one and am surprised it is only a C+ rating. Should be at least a B. Still I liked it and it deserves a B+

The look is a hazy light copper color. Decent white and foamy head. Light bubby carbonation. Sturdy and pretty nice-looking.

Has a rich bittersweet toasted malt aroma with fresh (English?) hops wafting above. Light caramel and hints of liquid yeast.

The taste is rich toffee and molasses notes over a roasted (not burnt) malt. The hops are a bittering accent which is mild and serves to balance all that sweetness. Hint of pale malt as well.

It feels creamy and thick. Remains on the tongue for sometimes after. Quite substantial. It's a sweet (caramel/molasses) thick beer with mild and bitter hops. More like a roasted pale than a fall beer, but quite good. A fine Oktoberfest.

A - light, see through amber with tons of carbonation bubbles; soft, bubbly head that fades after a few seconds

S - caramel, faint toast, faintly herbal

T - caramel, sweet, toffee, light toast, faintly bitter

M - medium bodied, sticky, well carbonated

I'm impressed by this beer. I didn't expect much going into this beer, but it is flavorful and very much to style. It is a bit sweet, but it's tasty and easily drinkable. This is a marzen that's worth a try.

Abita fallfest dark gold in color on tap head is full tight and thick with fine lace. It has a sweet smell of hops and autumny tones. Taste start of as hops and moves to sour citrus full mouth feel, goes very well with this hamburger.

Very well done 4 cross the board
