Notes & Commercial Description:

AutumnFest is Weyerbacher’s own unique twist on the German Oktoberfest style. Copper-amber in color, AutumnFest is made with Vienna and Munich malts for that authentic, Bavarian easy drinking taste. Each sip imparts a wonderful roastiness of malt on the tongue followed by a smooth, consistent finish.

Wonderfully balanced with a clean, velvety, slightly fruity taste, AutumnFest is the perfect beer for the Fall – a nice transition between the lighter beers of summer and the darker, heavier winter brews. It’s a favorite of many Weyerbacher aficionados, who anticipate the end of summer with this wonderful beer.
Weyerbacher’s AutumnFest, 5.4% ABV, is generally available in stores August through November. Pick up a case to celebrate the change of seasons. Prost!

A: Pours an amber color with 2 fingers of head that slowly fades down to a nice cap that leaves decent lacing

S: Lots of maltiness and grainy notes. Slightly fruity

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a bit of grain and husk and goes into a light fruitiness. Goes back into the graininess along with a light roastiness reminiscent of a woody/nutty note. Finishes with a hint of the roast and a very light sweetness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid twist on an o-fest. Definitely has that malty and grainy feel to it like an o-fest, but still a little different. Most definitely a nice fall brew

DATE TASTED: September 21, 2014... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint...OCCASION: football watching with friends Mary and Rich... APPEARANCE: reasonably copper-amber body; strangely quiet in the way of bubbles; head mellows to a thin off-white head... AROMA: fragrant floral hops abound; nicely rounded caramel settles and balances the aroma--alluring... PALATE: crunchy and medium-bodied, with slick finish that lingers confidently; possesses the effervescence of cola.....TASTE: mellow, sweet caramel with a pitchy, sharp funk that provides a distinct profile... OVERALL: what makes this an autumnal brew? a darker body? a smoky scent? a heartier flavor? This beer really doesn't have those attributes, but it does work well enough to compliment apps and football watching....
