Ingredients: Two row English malt (clarity, crystal, chocolate and wheat); Cascade, Golding & Fuggle hops.

Not bad, but not great. It has a good flavor. Not the best beer I have tried - not sure I’d get it again. But it was and is worth trying once.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 11, 2005
(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.

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!

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 10, 2005
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.
