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!

phillymonksman (60) - Ardmore, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Light alcohol smell, appealing medium amber color with a bubbly full body feel. It had a sour taste that I didn't like. Below average fest ale. Would not try again.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Loved the reddish copper color. A little sharp up front, but less as it warmed. Mostly malty - sweet and fruity with moderate caramel. Anticipation of fall.

jsquire (3436) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2003
Deep copper out of the bottle with a thin off white head and sweet, fruity nose. Subtle roasty malt notes over caramel apple. Very nice fall beer.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Deep amber, scant head. Aroma of malt. Quite malty flavor, some grassy hops. Some fruitiness as well. Alcohol emerges as it warms.

hopscotch (9096) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2003
Crystal clear copper hue. Very small fizzy head. Malty aroma with plenty of vanilla and butterscotch and unidentified fruit. Tastes about like it smells. Balanced decently with a nice, light hop presence on the backside. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, roasted, medium-dry finish. I've had much better beer from Weyerbacher, but then again this isn't really my style of beer. Just a decent brew from a great brewery.

TheBeerGod (5224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2003
Pours a beautiful auburn. Scent of hops, pumpkin seeds, malt, and cinnamon. The taste is smooth and pleasantly hopped. Slightly citrusy but dry aftertaste. Good beer.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 14, 2003
Pours with a slightly cloudy orange amber body topped by a thick creamy lasting head leaving good lace. A touch sweet, but mostly sour lemony aroma. Not a real appetizing aroma. Nothing great about the flavor. Somewhat sour and bitter with some lemon notes. Medium bodied and relatively smooth.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2003 2003 Batch:
Copper colour with nice red highlights and a medium sized tan head. Smells of a bunch of malt and a bit of spices. Allspice and even a bit of pepper are noticeable in the aroma as it is pretty powerful. Medium-bodied; Strong maltiness in the taste with a bit of the spices showing through followed by a slight metallic twang. The beer opens up a bit and shows a bit sweeter tastes as well as a slight bitter flavour. Aftertaste comprised mostly of the malt and leaving a bit of the spices as well. Overall, a pretty good Marzen, better than the Brooklyn I had earlier tonight. Pretty similar to last year's batch, even though I didnt take much notes from it. With the new year's batch comes a new colourful label that is far from the one displayed on this page. If you get the coloured label, you'll know you are getting this years' batch! Try it if you are in the mood for an autumn beer, you won't be dissapointed! Rating for this year: 8,4,7,2,13

2002 Batch:
Nice dark brown colour, slightly opaque throughout. Slightly nutty smell with a definate malt overload. Nice roasted flavour with some detectable nutty taste. A great all-around 'octoberfest' style beer! Rating for this year: 8,4,7,3,15
