Style: American Amber / Red Ale

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!

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark orange/amber with a thin white head. Fizzles out quickly. The nose is really sweet with lots of caramel, toffee, syrup, bread. Slightly slick mouth with subtle carbonation on the finish. Very mild hop flavoring. This beer is mainly sweet. Caramel, toffee, some faint fruitiness like apples. This was a decent drink, but nothing I'd stress too hard to get.
