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.

guzzler67 (1526) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Clear, reddish brown appearance with a medium size tan head and good lacing. Sweet, caramel malt aroma along with a dose of nuts and soft fruit. Earthy, nutty, toasted malt taste, supported by herbal, floral hops. Smooth, medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel, leading to a bitter, short lived finish.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle - Pours a dark amber in color with ruby/copper if held up to the light. Very small off-white head that (surprisingly) does produce minor lacing. Aroma is malty, slightly sweet with plenty of lightly roasted malts. Not that much on the hop side. Flavor is also quite malty, somewhat sweet, but the hops fill in some of the background to keep it more balanced. Roasted malts is still the dominant flavor. Slight sourness at the end

This is a dark brown ale. Some chocolate notes and a dry flavor. The color is similar to a light porter (i.e. darker than the typical brown ale) Decent head that leaves ample lace. Crystal malt is the main aroma, but there is a very present hop bouquet providing an excellent balance. The flavor is very rich. Not a bitter beer from hops. The body is also rich, but the carbonation is above average preventing a malted thickness. The aftertaste has elements of black patent bitterness.

Bottle. Pours a brown body with an off white head. Light nutty maltiness with hints of cherry wheat and sour fruit. Light dusty earthy hop character.

jgb9348 (4843) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2009
2006 Bottle:
Deep amber in colour with a strong copper, ruby and orange tint. All topped by a one centimetre tan head. Really nice looking! Aroma of cardboard, corn syrup, stale malt, old hops and some gross candy. Light-bodied; Strong bitter metallic flavour with really potent malt and nut tastes that lasts quite a while and tastes horrible in the mouth. Aftertaste shows a really strong and offensive beer that isn’t worth drinking at all. Overall, definitely worth passing this one up. I didn’t like it one bit after the appearance. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on 22-September-2006.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malts, chocolate, nuts, brown sugar, and some hops. Poured copper with a hint of amber in color and a small, rocky, tan head that disappeared. Clear. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malts, chocolate, nuts, brown sugar, and a little hops. Medium body. Chalky texture. Average carbonation. Malt-sweet, brown sugar, semi-dry finish.

Has a great looking color to it. A nice dark autumn color with no fog or haze in it. Has a burnt nutty smell to it with hints of malts. Tastes great! This stuff is smooth! Has that nutty brown ale flavor to it that is as smooth as they come. It has some sweet little after taste to it. Great stuff!!

BREWMUSKCLES (2300) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2008
brown indeed...a deep brown with light brown head and tastes of grains mainly barley with a hint of dark cherry (that is just a touch sweet with tar molassas), metal and gravy master. this taste calms down after some few moments to that of a barley and a burnt nut flavored cherry liquor flavor that is deep and different though modestly so. frothy small carbonation that dissipates quickly. well paired for the time of year. clean dishwater type hop character.
