3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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).

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

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.
