COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Geary’s Autumn Ale is a faithful interpretation of the classic brown ales of Great Britain. With a deep auburn color and a subtle nut-like flavor, Geary’s Autumn Ale is the perfect choice as the seasons change.
Ingredients: Two row English malt (clarity, crystal, chocolate and wheat); Cascade, Golding & Fuggle hops.

another solid beer from Geary’s. Almost black in color, actually looks like a baltic porter, but smells like the bread and butter malts, taste is pretty similar but with a little hop spice in the back end. Very enjoyable but could do with a little something extra that makes it unique.

Sweet taste of fall! Clear brown color with a small white head. Sweet beginning with a dryish maple finish.

tap at a pizza place in Portland - Pours amber with a light tan head and good lacing. The aroma is mild caramel malt. It tastes of toasted caramel malt, mostly sweet, with some good mild bitterness and toasty character in the finish of this well made medium bodied brown ale.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Location: Draft at RnH, 2/19/11

Aroma: Not much going on aroma-wise, light malty notes
Appearance: It pours an amber color with a smallish head
Flavor: The taste has some caramel/toffee, touch of yeast
Palate: The body is slightly sticky, a touch watery, nothing special
Overall Impression: Overall, this stuff wasn’t particularly exciting at all. Another fairly unimpressive offering from Gearys. At this point I really shouldn’t be disappointed.

blipp (6114) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Lightly sweet malt aroma, with some earthy and dirty notes. The flavor has some sweet toffee and some dirty diacetyl like notes. Not that good.

Pours clear and ruby colored over an off-white head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy, though not intensely of either. The medium bodied liquor is of medium intensity, drinkable and bitter-sweet with caramel dominant. Lovely, mild-mannered brown ale; very sessionable.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA, opened 10/5/10. Pours a clear ruby color with a medium creamy brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, spice and diacetyl. The taste is bitter malts, caramel, raisins, and a bit of spice. Medium bodied.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours very dark ruby red, crimson, with a small light brown head. Aromas of slight citrus and some tropical fruit, pepper, caramel, and brown sugar. The flavor is bitter pine, floral hops, citrus rind, sweet berry and brown sugar, with a bitter citrus finish. I found this to be very easy-drinking and quite good.

beerbill (3413) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a thin-moderate off-white head that fades away by the first sip and leaves zero lace. Pleasant aroma of chocolate, malt and nuts. The flavor is more malt driven than the aroma with some mild nuts and a trace of chocolate. Slight bitterness at the finish. Overall a nice problem free ale.
