Pours a caramel color with very little head. Has a very citrusy, floral aroma. Has a very bitter but hoppy flavor, but finishes kind of flat with a dark chocolate, nutty flavor. ok but not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 9/12/13. Poured into a ... ahem ... a shaker pint. A glass is better than NO glass, right?
Appearance: Super hazy brown/orange color, almost like the color of the bottle the beer is in. Finger of a light tan head. Not much lacing. This beer certainly says Autumn to me.
Smell: For some reason, I thought this almost gave the aroma of a new car. I drank it, I let it warm up a bit, I tried to study it... I came to the conclusion that this smells like Autumn. That’s probably due in large part because I know what the beer is and see the label, but it gives me that impression. It smells like fallen leaves on dirt.
Taste/feel: A lot like the smell. Just a really easy drinking beer without much depth in flavor. You get the dirty sort of malt flavor. A slight hop spiciness. And that’s basically it. Quite earthy flavors in here. There is very little bitterness on the finish, my guess would be about 30 IBUs. The feel is about what I had expected. A medium body with a pretty light carbonation.
Autumn Ale’s a fairly enjoyable, albeit forgettable, beer from Short’s. I love the label on it, the beer looks great when it’s poured, and it has a decent flavor, but there’s just not enough depth to really keep my interest. Regardless of that, I could see myself enjoying a few of these while watching the leaves fall. Sometimes I don’t enjoy a taste of a particular beer as much as I enjoy the bits of nostalgia I get from it... this is one of those beers. Just makes me think about jumping into a pile of fallen leaves. I think the smell and taste of this beer actually sort of captures that, as weird as that sounds.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light brown to mahogany pour, slightly cloudy with a half inch of white head. Cottony scent, lemon citrus, sweet fresh cut hay. Average to low carbonation, medium body and clean finish. Mellow flavor, Carmel malt and well rounded citrus flavors, a bit of roastiness and melon. Nice and easy drinking beer with a bit of character.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske: Orange ravfarvet meget let diset øl. Fint skumhoved. Duften er let maltet men med en god del engelsk blomsterhumle. Smagen er også fint balanceret med en smule bitterhed til at bakke maltsødmen op. Lidt kedelig men det er stilen.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy amber, thin white head. Aroma is pretty bland. Mild caramel malt and that’s about it. Flavor is mild bitter, malt, caramel, and some stale bread. Good seasons, but nothing too complex or special.
