COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Autumn Fire
Ale brewed with chestnut and spices
To catch a bit of soft radiance in each special bottle, we wait for fall colors to begin their bright and fleeting glow before brewing this wonderful ale under their autumn fire. Gentle amber malts lead smooth caramel notes, gently lapping against a shore of distant forgotten spice. A beer to contemplate and enjoy!

Batch 901, Bottled October 19, 2011.
Appearance: The body is a hazy light amber with a tall white head that dissipates rather quickly to a dense white coating with a tall ring.
Aroma: Slight Autumn spices of cinnamon and clove with a light fruity tartness I can’t put my finger on, cherries? Hints of red wine vinegar too. This smells great.
Taste: Mildly tart with a small hint of vinegar, but it quickly picks up on a dry nutty and cinnamon/nutmeg finish that abruptly stops. Sort of a potpourri finish.
Palate: Light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: I wonder if this has gotten more tart with age or lost it, I also wonder if the body was more beefy fresh. This drinks nicely now, though I wish I’d saved it for a nice Autumn night.

Atheist_Peace (948) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
Very cloudy pour with an average sort of head that lasts and leaves a nice little lace. Spice jumps out on the nose with a nutty sort of edge. There’s a definite lactic note there as well, and a real lemony quality. All the same notes come out on the palate in much the same way. Very interesting and lightly sour.

750 ml bottle at Logans Alley. Wonderful amount of pleasant sourness with a nice hint of cinnamon and chestnuts. Delicious anytime of the year.

750ml bottle at Logan's Alley, a very mild and pleasant amount of sourness with a fair amount of cinnamon and chestnuts. Would definitely buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
