2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2004 (BB 12/31/01) A Moctoberfest. Malty and mild. Very middle of the road. Has the typical Weyerbacher house character. Taste like a ringwood beer.
New version is cleaner and better, but not much better.

This is a very tastey, mildy malty brew. A tad thin but smooth with a nice hop balance.

Clear, copper colored. Thin head and lace. Huge malty aroma, very vienna like. Medium bodied,very smooth. Tons of malt character,wisps of toast and some yeasty frutiness. This is for malt lovers for sure. Good marzen.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2004 I had this again at a bar, and the 2nd time around, I wasn't as impressed. Little head, some hoppiness. Originally, a nice maple hint(first time I had it), but this time I couldn't taste much but a little hops. I was a bit disappointed in this one.

Being a big fan of Weyerbacher, I was disappointed that Autumn Fest was tasteless. I will have to try it again to make sure.

After picking up the seasons current offering,
I’m obliged to come back and redo my previous
rating and evaluation. I’m not sure if the recipe
changed, my palate changed, I had a weird bottle, or
I was just insane, but last time I swear I detected
loads of hop flavor. However, in the current sampling,
there is nothing of the kind other than a very mild background
of hop bitterness. Instead, this is a rather malty offering, with
a clean sweet nose, and full malty sweet flavor. Nice medium
body. A bit on the cloudy side, but otherwise a nice brownish amber
color with a good head.
