Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Fall

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!

Pours a rusty hazy orange with a small off white head. The smell is malty, but not much else that I can get from it. The taste has tons of malt packed in but also some metalic aftertaste. It has some sweet tones from the amount of malt they use, but not much diversity in the flavor. Medium-light mouthfeel, it is smooth, but one dimensional beer. Overall a good malty beer, but do have just one main aspect the beer has to be done well, this one was just ok from my experience.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, cloudy, copper/amber color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds of foam that gathered in the center of the top of the beer.

Aroma: Malty and bready, like freshly baked sourdough bread. I get notes of caramel, black pepper and clover; however, I get next to nothing in the way of hops.

Taste: Malty and bready upfront, followed by some black pepper, honey and caramel-like sweetness. There’s just a hint of hops at the finish to round everything out.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with some pretty good carbonation, to tickle the tastebuds. With an ABV of 5.4%, there is no alcohol present on the palate.

Overall: This is a very good American version of an Oktoberfest beer. Great balance between malt, sweetness and subtle hops. I’ll definitely pick up a few bottles next year.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a tulip glass.
Aroma- a semi-sweet grain and hop aroma.
Appearance- a very nice copper/burnt orange color with a small white head.
Taste- A well balanced flavor of the hops and malt, no bitter aftertaste
Palate- light bodied beer with mild carbonation, goes down well
Overall- a very pleasant brew. I would definitely drink this again.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Dark golden in hue, sparse head & very little lacing. Aroma is very light but a hint of the malty goodness is there. Nice body & well balanced sweetness. At 5.4% this registers as a very friendly beer.
