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!

Even though this bottle may be past it’s prime, it still proved lively in carbonation and retained a balanced taste. Copper with thin tan head, the nose was stale, somewhat like cardboard and nuts. The caramel taste in the front was nice, as was the nutty dry finish. A nice strong Oktoberfest.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2004
A solid fest. The pour is dark amber, with nice brussels lace as one drinks. The flavor is standard fest, with dual European malts, and overtones of caramel, figs, and walnuts. A very smooth, very good fest.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Gopper colored brew with an off white head. Malty sweetness up front with some fruitiness coming through in the finish. Light/medium body, a decent brew.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2009 Dark oarnge/brown. Creamy,nice sized,head. Good lacing. Big sweet,fruity,bready malt aroma. Mouthfeel a touch fizzy,quite creamy. Fairly big body for a O’fest. Good malty flavors(bready,fruity).Finish is clean,and malty. Could use a bit more hops in the flavor to dry out the finish. Although,it’s still a pretty nice beer.

Thanks to jcalabre for this. Nice malty sweet character, light bodied with a smooth finish - well done for the intended style.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 19, 2003
Poured clear copper/orange with no head. The aroma was slightly sweet & malty. This is very easy drinking with a slightly sweet finish. Good session beer.

egajdzis (5365) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2003
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.

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.
