Autumn AleAutumn Ale

Brewed by:
Breckenridge Brewery
Colorado, United States

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.

Wow. Open and pour and be shocked at the deep, intense color. Nice. It has a thinish head, but that color is amazing.

The aroma is very complex and nice. It has all kinds of malty smells. Very nice and unique.

The taste is also malty but also with some hops taste. It is a nicely balanced taste. The finish is sweet and pleasant. Overall, this is an interesting, unique variant of the style. I like it and would buy it again if I were looking for a dark change of pace.

Bottle poured into a Sam Adams pint glass.

wow.. much darker brown than I anticipated.. looks good though.

Oh.. this is really good. Not much bitterness. It came out around the same time as most of the Oktoberfests so I wanted to compare it to some of those beers as I was drinking them at the time.

This one has some similarities, but is a bit smoother... caramel and malts are there..

Really good beer. I'd love to have this fresh off the tap.
