Looking for a fresh take on Oktoberfest beer? Breckenridge Brewery's 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, our Autumn Ale is a full-bodied treat with a nutty-sweet middle, a warming alcohol level and notes of toasted grains. A pre-winter winner.

Very dark amber in pour with very little head. Some vinegar on the nose and roasted nuts. Kind of sharp sour flavor with some dried fig and an earthy finish.

12oz bottle, courtesy of tjthresh. Thanks, Tom! Pours a clear, very dark cola color; fluffy, light tan head with great retention and lacing that coats the glass; a beautiful pour. Candy sugar and cola and toasted malts in the aroma; mildly sticky maltiness. Medium mouthfeel: solid malt core (maple syrup, dried red fruits: made me think "scotch ale") without much stickiness; very drinkable and well-composed autumn beer; light mineral hop bitterness on the perimeter. Some darker fruits and toasted malts appear in the finish. Unexpectedly good.

VAYankee (336) - Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Dark brown body with thin light brown head. Lightly sweet malt, faint nut aroma. Very thin on the palate. Flavor is some dry, roasted malt, a little bitterness, a little bready. Undistinguished mild nutty/malty aftertaste.

Nice color but thin head. Aroma is a little malty and weird. The flavor lets you know that it’s not an amber, my first thought. The oldish taste is there with some alcohol too, but pretty good.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Sampled at the brewery during GABF. Very dark brown and opaque with a nice off white head. Heavy malty flavor with a syrupy hint of vanilla. Something in the finish just turns me off. Malty aroma with some kind of syrupy malt hint that, again, doesn’t do it for me. Creamy coating mouth feel.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Don’t have notes on the nose, but the flavor is weak nuts, darker fruits and winterish spices. Very slick and water however, which is in contrast to how it looks and seems like it should taste.

pours a dark brown, darker than i thought it was going to be, very porter like with coffee and chocolate tastes. if it wasn’t for the unpleasant finish it would rate higher

clong83 (285) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 13, 2007
I get a hodgepodge of flat, caramel-like syrupy flavors. Very heavy on the palate, and not in a good way. Also has an odd metallic tinge to it. I was very disappointed in this beer, not a fan.

Bottle courtesy of tjthresh. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells nutty and spicy with some dark fruit. Tastes of caramel and molasses.
