COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AutumnFest is Weyerbachers own unique twist on the German Oktoberfest style. Copper-amber in color, AutumnFest is made with Vienna and Munich malts for that authentic, Bavarian easy drinking taste. Each sip imparts a wonderful roastiness of malt on the tongue followed by a smooth, consistent finish. Wonderfully balanced with a clean, velvety, slightly fruity taste, AutumnFest is the perfect beer for the Fall- a nice transition between the lighter beers of summer and the darker, heavier winter brews. It is a favorite of many Weyerbacher aficionados, who anticipate the end of summer with this wonderful beer. Weyerbacher AutumnFest (ABV 5.4%) is generally available in stores August through December. Pick up a case to celebrate the change of seasons. Prost!

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2004 Poured a light copper color with an inch thick off white head that left some lacing. Sweet malty, slightly hoppy, straw and hay in the aroma. I smell either wort or the signature Weyerbacher yeast, which I am not a HUGE fan of. The taste is sweet with roast, and caramel maltiness. But that damn yeast dominates this beer. I really tried, but I am not able to like this one so much. Please! why must all your beers (cept for the big ones) taste like this!?!

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2003
predictable copper of the brewer's 'whatever's leftover' autumn grain bill: tawny malts, russet oak leaves, mildew and sun-toasted hay. nutty and caramel-like with brown apple peel; soapy note and cardboard. tasty and light bodied enough to earn the euphemism: "refreshing". brisk carbonation, plus a cherry note to enliven the dry, pie crusty malts; some lisping hops won't be assertive enough to carve thier influence on your memory. but overall a solid entry into a category ever more evolving to blander caramel-hued lagers.

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2003
Medium brown in color. Large, light toast colored, rocky head. Slight coffee aroma. Taste is really nice, I am not a big fan of this style, but this is quite tastey. Taste is grains and carmel. No overly sweet or overly flowery like some Marzen brews.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Dark copper color, slightly hazy, topped by a modest cream hed that fades to a light film. Aroma is very earthy with good toasted malt. Flavor is good, exhibiting a strong roasted componenet coupled with a slight citrus note. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Overall, a decent brew, but definitely average in the realm of fest brews.

Caramel, sugar sweet nose. Some mild bitternesses. A good balance between sweet malt flavors with a mid-level hop finish.

Dogbrick (7681) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Sampled at From The Vine monthly beer tasting Oct 13th, 2003: Reddish-amber color with a medium thin off-white head. Very thin lacing. Weak malt and caramel aroma. Thin-to-medium body with a sweet malt flavor, along with a light hops presence lingering around. I thought this would be a little more robust given the ABV. The finish is mostly malty with a little fruit and hops thrown in. Barely average overall.

JFGrind (1838) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2003
The extra hops add a bitterness not usually contained in an Oktoberfest. High alcohol content can "sneak up" on you after a few pints.

sloth (2454) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2003
Teeny tan head, oops! Its gone. Clear amber color. Malty, slightly bready nose. Med body. Subdued malt and biscuit flavors, maybe a little chocolate also. Finish is medium dry.

DYCSoccer17 (3302) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Pours a transparent copper with a 1cm quickly dissipating head. SOme mild lacing. Aroma isnt really there--maybe some mild maltiness. Good mouthfeel. Start is a roasty malt flavor which fades out into a mildly bitter taste. Not a ton going on here. Not a bad octoberfest, average.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Clear copper with a thin light tan head. Aroma is sugary sweet with some dark roasted graininess. Body is lightly sweet with a musty, lightly sour malty finish. Decent German hop profile. Somewhat thin body goes down smooth.
