A pretty tasty beer from a unique brewery. My 750ml sample is about one year old. I had the privilege of visiting the brewery last November with a friend of mine. This bottle was bought on site.
Appearance: As the name indicates, it is indeed an amber glowing 'autumnal fire' hue. Inviting.
Smell: Roasted chestnut aroma.
Taste: Wow, there's A LOT of stuff going on here! I certainly get fruity esters that would indicate a Belgian-type yeast, but there is also some good caramel notes on the palate. Perhaps a hint of pumpkin, too? (No, really!)
Mouthfeel: A good sour, slightly acidic start, but finishes nice and dry!
Drinkability: This is a good beer to relax with on a cool autumnal evening. I think there may be other beers in the Jolly Pumpkin universe that I like a bit more than this one (I don't rate it as high as many others here), but it is a unique and tasty beer nonetheless.
