BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Breckenridge Brewery
Colorado, United States
breckbrew.com

Style: Old Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our fall seasonal combines the malty goodness of a German lager with the clean crispness of an American ale. Brewed with Munich malts and a delicate blend of Bavarian hops, it's a full-bodied treat with a nutty-sweet middle, a warming alcohol level and notes of toasted grains. A pre-winter winner.

To me, the taste is exceptional. Everything else is good. Head was gone immediately. Carbonation was maintained. I favor dark stronger beers, and recommend this one to those with the same tastes.

Just noticed that the description says 6%, but I thought my bottle said 7.5%.

To my surprise, a dark brown beer flows into the glass. By dark brown, I really mean "dark" brown. Good sized khaki-colored head as well. Bready, malty, bavarian aroma. The flavor is of toasted grains with a well-balanced addition of hops. Very drinkable. I'd like to see this with a little more body and carbonation, but overall it's a fair beer and worthy of a fair rating.

I like the way this ale transitions my buds for winter's offerings.
Darker, sweeter and maltier than expected, Autumn Ale balances with enough hops.

Dark brown no head. Smell of dark carmel malts, dark fruit and taste follows with a bit of spicy hops. Good beer but low carb and body hold it back.

Dark brown, nearly black, this beer is topped with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is a little earthy, nutty, and has a bit of toasted bread and caramel notes. The taste is balanced, with solid bitterness and a roasted malt flavor. Some spicy hop character near the finish. FUll in body and worthwhile.
