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.

color is very dark with just a slight amount of light showing through...reddish. thin to non-existent head...leaving only a ring. some roastiness in the flavor, but there is a whole lot of sour going on in this one. roastiness in the nose as well...but the finish is just damned sour.

Brown but transluscent. Tastes more like a porter than an Oktoberfest. Full-bodied, roasted/burnt coffee flavors prominent in all parts of the taste. Perhaps a little too thin on the mouthfeel. Warming, nice!

Very good, I feel the beer I had tasted nothing like what the other raters had: decent head. Roasted nut / coffee aroma....taste followed suit, sweet, slightly syruppy finish. Well done.

Fruity aromatic brew. Traces of apricot. Light and sweet.

They should call this Spring Ale because drinking it makes me think of Easter Egg solution. Too vinegary & sour.

amber. Thinner body, medium carbonation. Sour/sweet chalky metallic tastes. bad bottle, or do i just not like the sour notes? i dunno, but i’m not planning on trying it again, thank you very much.

Dogbrick (8149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. Pretty color but not much going on in the flavor. I found it neither malty nor hoppy. It was not as good as their Christmas seasonal.

jsquire (3479) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2002
Copper in color with a fizzy, tan head and lots of bubbles. Very malty sweetness with faint flavors of something toasted. There is a sour in the finish that impaired my enjoyment of this okay beer.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2007 Dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of roast and ??? Very malty flavor, almost as malty as a malted milkshake.

Weird burnt aroma and that appears again in the flavor. Unusual, but that’s not a bad thing. Tasting and smelling like burned leaves after raking the yard, I’d have to say the 6.7% abv is extremely well-hidden here. Nice effort. I don’t share everyone’s disappointment with this beer - I think it’s a sourish, quality effort from an otherwise pathetically lame brewery.
