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 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

Nice solid example of an Octoberfest.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 13, 2003
Malty and heavy, like a good marzen, but with a little too much hops and an odd nuttiness in the very long finish. Nice and clean. Good roasty body with a sharp german style hopping in the end. Good, but not to my taste. Slightly weak aroma, or maybe my senses were shot from the other beers I had that night.

The aroma is thick with maltiness, as is the flavor. It makes me crave an old-fashioned chocolate malt, but since I have no ice cream, this beer will have to do. An interesting, and enjoyable take on the Oktoberfest.

Looks like an Oktoberfest, but smells and tastes more like a weak English Strong Ale. This tastes very similar to their Winter Ale, but I think this is a bit more well-balanced and pleasing to drink. Very roasty, with a medium body, slight maltiness, and background sweetness. A pretty good transition between lighter, warm weather beers, and dark, strong, cold weather beer. Too bad I drank it in the winter.

This beer poured into the glass amber that looked rather sharp in the light. The head was an off white in color that did not last long. There seemed to be very little lace to none at all. The aroma was almost non-existent. Slight hops, malt and spices. The taste was just there. It had a prominent perfume flavor. Some malt and hop bit but if it was not perfume it would have hardly no taste. Sorry, maybe it was the bottle I got , but not a good beer except the color.

Smelled like vanilla cake batter, vanilla tones in the taste also. Orange color and a medium body. This was just too odd for me - didn’t much care for it.

YogiBeera (2475) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2005 Buttery toffee nose and taste. Amber. Not much to say. Overall rated a 2 RERATE: I wish I had noted in the first rating where and under which conditions I drunk this beer and gave it only a 2- because the gap to the Rerate is pretty interesting. This time it was bottled. Brown amber color, big frothy head, liveley carbonation. Sweet malt, yeast and alcohol taste. Smells like a Belgian :-) with caramel and cereal but all in all light. Intense medium lasting malt taste. Quite good.

Copper colored brew with a small to medium white head. Clearly identifyable roasty characteristics in the nose with mild hops making an appearance. Roasted aromas show through in the initial taste and subside to a nice, traditional German malt flavor in the middle. Finish is relatively clean with some bitterness showing. Enjoyable.
