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!

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....

Striking copper. Earthy and bready nose. Malty and bready but thinner than I expected. There is dry bitterness on the finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

L: tawny-hued liquid with a slight haze... open foam with a sudsy surface - doesn't quite fizz out right away

S: roasty, broth-y aromas - almost like caramelized onions and reddish bread crust - French onion soup?!... crisp sulfur-y lager yeast in the background... the Munich and more so the darker, amber/brown-ish malt comes more to the fore in time

T: mildly-burly melanoidin in control, bit of a bittersweet middle, balancing mild caramel-y malt with dried-leafy hop and dry toasty grain flavors... toasted grain carries the finish and aftertaste with a subtle apple sweetness lingering in the back... sip after sip reveals this to be a slightly dirty, woody, toast-forward brew - mostly clean and not all that far off from a more rugged, chiseled, and robust version of Yuengling's flagship amber lager...

F: perhaps slightly on the lighter side of medium-bodied... marble-smooth flow with a flat and dry finish that snaps off a touch

O: a nice beer that tastes remarkably of the season, but is short on personality... quite the neutral American malt profile as it lacks the depth brought on by Old World ingredients and techniques (decoction?)
