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 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.

clear dark gold pour some white foam. Aroma funky oak, dust granny smiths markers. Light carb. Buttery lacto. Chestnut aftertaste, obscured by oak and sour, concrete dust. some burnt plastic on the end. bitter type finish. A complex, balanced beer that lets one too many flavors in the door.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2008
2007 bottle. Nice golden-orange color with a pleasant, oaky aroma that features some pleasant sourness, spices, and citrus. Flavor has a nice citrus bite with a bit of bretty sourness that is well balanced with gentle spices, oak, and assorted fruits. Nice mouthfeel. This is a classic example of why JP rules!

This beer is all over the place. Copper color with a small bubble white head. Aroma is tart, bret funk, woody oak, some fruit. Flavor is rich and complex...huge profile. Well balanced and very interesting.

Beaver (1647) - 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, it’s a pretty typical JP brew, although not one of their better ones. I’d prefer more sourness and less watery flavors.

Bottle purchase at Hoppiness beer store in Koper/Capidistria-Slovenia, consumed in Serbia. Pours amber color, quite cloudy with a tick off white foam. Nose: quite a distinctive wild sourness, berries, macerated grapes, a hint of caramel. Loads of wild mint as well. Mouth: lively carbonated, quite watery, spicy after taste, too much herbal in the end. Bit rough...for me. Did not get the chestnuts but appreciated the concept all in all. It talks to autumn in a way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kathouse (1626) - Nevada, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Nice thin head coats this slightly hazy amber colored ale. Aroma is yeast and spice. Taste is strong fruit with a sweet finish. Mild carbonation and a light mouthfeel make the beer smooth. Some tartness distracts but you get kinda used to it.

Bomber. Hazy gold with a white head. Light funk and spice aromas. Fruity and tart.
