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!

hopscotch (10427) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2006
UPDATED: APR 23, 2006 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Cloudy, amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Neverending retention. The incredi-nose is funky, fruity, floral, spicy and nutty. Well-balanced, spicy, nutty, tangy, ginger-laden flavor. Medium-bodied and silky with medium carbonation. Finishes tangy, a bit tart and acetic. Another world class offering from J.P.! Thanks go out to artusory for the bottle!
