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!

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of plastic, caramel malt, toasted coconut, standard JP funk. Flavor a mix of caramel malt and that JP funk. A little more body and malt to balance the by now boring funk than in some other JPs, but still not really getting me going.

Nephilium (1554) - Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2008
(Batch 244,245) The aroma starts with the standard tart funk of almost all of Jolly Pumpkin’s beers. Underneath that, there are hints of nuts, and a touch of chocolate. Pours a clear amber, with a huge rocky white head. The taste is a peppery, nutty ale, crisp on the palate with a slight bit of tartness to it. Very tasty, and works quite well even in summer.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Glowing amber. Large, frothy, off white head. Nose of sour, funky yeast, toasted nuts, spices, and bready malt. The brett is really kickin in this one after almost a year. Same flavors as above with the sourness dominating, some earth and oak in there as well. Medium body, well carbonated. Tasty brew.

Beaver (1486) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin white head that quickly goes to a thin film and collar that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is doughy malts with tart, slightly sour, fruits and some spices.

The flavor is earthy yeast with some bready malts. It has some tart and slightly sour fruits, wood and some spices and a dry lightly bitter finish. It has a bit of a washed out and watery flavor. The mouthfeel is medium with lots of sharp carbonation.

Overall, its a pretty typical JP brew, although not one of their better ones. Id prefer more sourness and less watery flavors.
