COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Yeast: Top Fermenting Ale Yeast

Meh... just OK. Good malty beer with some hop balance, but it just did not grab me...

Pours surprisingly dark w/ a small tan head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is faint & slightly malty. The taste is pretty much clean & uninteresting. Drinkable but boring!

KennyGalanif (42) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Pours a nice maple color with less than a full finger of head. Aroma is of roasted malts, caramel, raisins, minimal hops, and a slight smell of alcohol. Taste is kinda bland, it's refreshing, but boring. Almost tastes like a watered down Octoberfest. Overall, I'm glad I tried it, but I won't buy this one again.

Not unpleasing. Doesn’t seem to have that Old Ale Strength. I would drink again. Non descript.

Jimsal27 (248) - New York, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Pours brown out if bottle. Aroma was best part of this beer. Smells of yeast, bread and malt. Overall tast was weak with thin mouthfeel. Not great.

Holdwine (1077) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Nice fest beer. Not sure about its hybrid style, but enough caramel notes for a fall offering. I guess it has a crisp, low bitterness finish.
