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!

Thanks to bbuckets tasting group. Sugary sweet apple and a good dose of funk with a little oak. Not overly sour, and very drinkable.

MrBunn (2561) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Bottle. (Batch 244/245). Pour is a cloudy amber with streams of small bubbles and a head that is small for JP... sits at about two fingers. Aromas are skunky funk with an acidic edge. Falvor holds true to the aroma and sour and funk dominate... lemon peel and oak in the finish.

bhensonb (12320) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Bottle from John’s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Pours a hazy orange tinged amber. Creamy beige head. Slightly sour aroma. A bit peachy. Medium body with mild creamy carbonation. Flavor is a bit like light stone fruit. The sour moderates a bit towards the finish. Very refreshing. Turns a bit citus after awhile.

marcus (7473) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 25, 2008
This copper ale poured with a decent off-white head and a sour aroma. The flavor, too, is mildly sour over an interesting malt base. There are some nice spices to enhance the recipe.

AmEricanbrew (6331) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Bottling #3, 2007. Hazy light amber with a fleeting head. Good barnyard, cheesy, dry hay, lemon, toasted oak aroma, lots to take in here. Lightly carbonated, smooth on the palate. Flavor is mildly sweet caramel at first, then turns dry with grassy dusty malts. Finishes with a dry, yeasty wheat bread sourness. Wow, this brewery never ceases to amaze me.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Pretty cool nose showing good funky fruit characteristics and a nice brett backing. The color was dark orange. Flavors were dry, fruity, and bretty with a lot of orange flavors all around. The bitterness was there was tame. Smells a lot better than it tastes though.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle I got in a trade 1+ years ago, sampled at RBSG ’08. Pours with an orange gold body topped by a medium thick head with lots of lacing. It’s slightly sweet yet slightly sour with a little spice and a light oakiness. Medium bodied, dry and smooth.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Bottle at RBSG grand tasting. Thanks to whoever brought this. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small cream head. The aroma is lightly funky with spicy almonds and a hint of vanilla. The flavor was nutty and sour with walnuts and nutmeg. The mouthfeel was full and silky smooth. The finish was medium in duration and a bit sour. Overall: a most original ale. Very nice.

lb4lb (2574) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Thanks to Erin for bringing this back from Atlanta. Pours a nice caramel color with a biege head and plenty of yeasty floaties. Smell is lightly spiced cinnamon and nutmeg almost. Taste is dry and spiced again with an unusual biscuity bubbly malt. Interesting but not particularly fantastic. Hard to describe but, warm dry spices dominate and the drinkability is good.
