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: FEB 2, 2004 Tons of hops, sort of an Imperial Marzen! Not my bag, baby! Otherwise, the malt body is solid and rather big. It has a nice caramel aroma, though.

After seeing a brewery tour of Pennsylvania on PBS and buying my first case of Blanche, a white Begian style ale, I am hooked on Weyerbacker’s quality of brewing - for only $20 a case! I bought a variety pack that contained this Octoberfest beer. The color was a brownish-orange with cream head. I was pleased with the not too hoppy taste, and I swore I tasted pumpkins and spice.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2006 12 oz bottle 2006. Pours a clear deep amber with some woody brown and a thin head. Aroma is nutty and toasted malts with hints of chocolate- and a definite diacetyl that isnt too overpowering. More diacetyl in the flavor, nutty malts, toast, bready, light chocolate- more of a nut brown ale style than an oktoberfest. I have to also wonder if this is actually a lager (oktoberfest).

jcalbi (378) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2002
Clean copper body with a rather watery beige head. Aromas of cinnamon and other not so identifiable spices along with a reasonable malt aroma. Somewhat smoky mouthfeel with a decent malt base and a mildly hoppy finish

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 20, 2002
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.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2002
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.

BigSkyman007 (202) - USA - AUG 30, 2002
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.

Very malty, but its an ale, more like an Alt than anything else
