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.

(Bottle) Pours a nice medium ruby-brown, creamy biscuit head, but only so-so lacing. Aroma has some caramel. Flavor: malty sweetness (maybe slightly too much) up front then finishes with a nice bitterness. Mouthfeel: nice, smooth, not too thin. Nice offering from D.L. Geary Brewing.

Pours a very nice dark brown, with a white head. Kind of nutty and malty, metallic aftertaste. Not bad.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Pours a dark amber with a decent off white head. Smells nuttey with some nice dandelion like undertones. Tastes of yogurt, toffee, caramel and rose hips with a bittersweet finish.

Nice malt aroma with a hint of spice and poured a medium clear brown color. Good malted blend across tongue with a hop zest finish. I managed a single sample but won’t hesitate to purchase the twelve-pack to review my findings!

Faint smells of malts and nuts, very subtle though. Brown appearance with a slight ring head. Taste is malt, raisins, and caramel. Pretty yummy brown ale, smooth and pretty easy drinking. This is an excellent fall choice from Geary’s.

The Autumn Ale is a deep amber in the glass, yet remarkably clear. Virtualy no head on this ale whatsoever. What little there is quickly dissipates leaving no lace. The smell is light and nutty. I certainly wasn’t expecting a red/brown ale to be so hoppy. First taste has quite a bite to it, fading to a nutty flavor with a hint of caramel. Very, very good! The body is medium but disappointingly fades quickly. Very thin on aftertaste save the hops. Very smooth. Easy to drink, especially if you don’t mind the hops. A gift from a guest, this ale is a very pleasant surprise and will certainly hit the spot on these cool autumn days in Maine.

This was tried due to my being a fan of Geary’s Winter Ale unfortunately it did not offer the same enjoyment. A beer I can easily pass on.

Kinz (3258) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Amber, little head died totally. Literally no aroma. Flavor was weakly of roasted malts, with the characteristic tinge of sourness. Literally nothing else happening here. Sad.

Deep mahogany (right?) Sweet/tart.Spicy. Or spicy in a way I’m just not crazy about Not elements in a beer that tend to bring endearment.

Reddish brown pour with a quickly receding head. Fainy sweet, malty aroma and a little bready. Predominant hoppy flavor, very bland, watery backbone. Some dry nuttiness. Thin, but crisp, with a slightly bitter finish. Definitely not a favorite.
