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!

Served in my my at Estelle's in Boston.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Sweet caramel, toffee, toasted grains, and bready malts with some noble hops.

Taste: Same as above. A little sweeter than most though.

Mouthfeel: Smooth: chewy, a bit sweet, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: A decent marzen/oktoberfest. A bit sweeter than most and it has all the other standard characteristics.

A: Pours an amber color with 2 fingers of head that slowly fades down to a nice cap that leaves decent lacing

S: Lots of maltiness and grainy notes. Slightly fruity

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a bit of grain and husk and goes into a light fruitiness. Goes back into the graininess along with a light roastiness reminiscent of a woody/nutty note. Finishes with a hint of the roast and a very light sweetness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid twist on an o-fest. Definitely has that malty and grainy feel to it like an o-fest, but still a little different. Most definitely a nice fall brew
