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!

brokensail (13231) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
A: The pour is a slightly hazed peach color with a large white head, maybe just a bit off-white. S: The nose has the signature tartness of Jolly Pumpkin with a lot of hibiscus notes to it. Quite a bit of funkiness to it with notes of hay and wet oak. There’s a bit of a lemon zest note to it, too. T: A strong flavor of chestnuts comes through and provides a strongly "meaty" flavor. The tartness here is minor, but certainly noticeable. Again, lots of floral notes, specifically hibiscus, with a bit of rose petals. Quite a bit of spice to it, also, but I don’t really notice anything in particular. M: The body is medium with a medium but lively carbonation. D: Even for a Jolly Pumpkin beer, this is pretty interesting. I liked it quite a bit, but it’s definitely different from most of their beers.
