Abita Fall Fest is an Octoberfest-style lager brewed with pale, Munich and caramel malts. iI is hopped with German Perle and Hallertau hops. The result is a full-bodied, malty lager with a bright amber color. Cheese pairings include Gruyère and Swiss-style cheeses.
Suggested temperature: 42°
Suggested glassware: pint, pilsner, goblet, stein or stange.
Being one of those boys round here I decided to forgo the glass and drink straight from the bottle. I did pair it with my wife's cheesy buffalo chicken dip. The result? More deliciousness than you could imagine.
I'm a big fan of amber ales. I'm a big fan of Abita. Needless to say I'm a big fan of Abita's regular Amber brew. This Fall Fest had just a little less malt to it but was simply delicious. It also brought out the flavor of the dip like it wasn't no thing.
If you like ambers, and you should, then. I highly recommend this beer. The window is fairly narrow to get your hands on it so don't wait. Oh, and save me one.
