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!

Nice amber color with a bread-like aroma. Malt sweetness up front with a mild smooth finish. A fairly good example of a domestic style O'fest beer.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Clear copper body with a fluffy light tan head. Some lacing.
Malt and sweetness in the aroma. Maybe some caramel too.
Malt, slightly metallic taste. Weird combination of malts. Vienna, biscuit(?), roast and some pilsen(?) seems to work. Sweet aftertaste with a slight noble hop bite.
Full-bodied and smooth. Drinkable and the %ABV is hidden well.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2003
No thanks. A unique twist, eh? Aroma is cerealy, sweet malt. Body is clear and copper-colored, with a thin off-white head. Flavor is a confused medley of cereal, sweet fruit, and wet socks. Has a somewhat bitter, confusing aftertaste. Doesn't resemble the Oktoberfests I'm familiar with.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Fairly clean & crisp, but the malts don't come forward like they should. Very clear amber color & slightly roasty/malty aroma. I was disappointed byt hte lack of character here.

Grainy aroma with a decent balance of hops and malts in the flavor.

Holdwine (1101) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Might have been the jerky, but this one did not grab me right away. Average nose and color. It started off weak. Not quite flavorless, but... Then, as it warmed, the maltiness woke up, and things ended on an upswing. Small apple tones with a nice roasted character.

psark (54) - Binghamton, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2003
True to style. Refreshing and full of character. Lighter on the palate than the 6.1% indicates.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Medium-dark copper/amber color, with a very small off-white head that recedes to a small ring, leaving a bit of lace. Aroma is sweet, some fruitiness and caramel, with a hint of hops in the back. Flavor is of sweet malts and some fruitiness, ending with a minimal hop presence. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nothing super exciting, but decent.

Deep amber with a medium white head. Malty aroma. Sweet and medium bodied. Slight hop flavor in the finish.
