Listed as an Red Wheat Ale with peaches. On-tap at Goose Island Wrigleyville. Served in a taster glass.

A - A finger of foam settles to a very thin ring and some wispy patches, but no lacework. Hazy dark amber body.

S - Smells like a red ale - treacle, toffee, fruity ale yeast, and perhaps the faintest hint of wheat. No obvious peach character to the aroma.

T - Taste is a bit better, with a hint of peach extract coming out. Otherwise it's a combination of sugar, toffee, and crystal malt. No obvious hop presence.

M - Smooth, mdium body, crisp moderate-to-low carbonation, and no obvious alcohol. Not big complaints here.

D - Needs more peach flavor. Tastes like an extremely average red ale with some nebulous fruity yeast character to it. Skip this one.

A - A reddish brown color with a white head that faded to a partial cap. Nothing really left on the sides of the glass.

S - A pretty sweet smelling beer. Some of the wheat malt comes through, it's quite fruity smelling and light. A clean smelling brew with no residual bitterness or anything else.

T - The peach taste comes through quite a bit. I didn't realize this was brewed with peaches and initially picked out the flavor as strawberry as it isn't a real deep peach taste. Some light, sweet malts and a clean finish. When I saw the name Chicago Autumn I was thinking more of a harvest ale. Between that and the darker color I was not expecting the flavor to be as light as it was. Unfortunately there just isn't a whole lot going on other than sweetness, kind of boring.

M - Medium bodied, pretty soft carbonation.

O - This isn't a bad beer, it's pretty light and the sweetness doesn't get to the point where it was too much. Something that you can serve to non-craft women I imagine if Blue Moon or the like isn't available.
