Good label on an embossed 12 oz longneck. Surprisingly dark brew. Rich malty aroma with some licorice and pepperoni. Tastes like a mild. Faintly roasted, a little sweet, very light creosote. Very drinkable. Lightish body. ABC Liquors, Betton. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2014
11/01/2014: Breckenridge Autumn Ale pours an elegant deep brown color with a nice beige head of foam. The aroma is toasted German malt and bread crust. The flavor is rich and roasty with a lot of chocolate malt followed by caramelized sugar, a dap of molasses, and a good amount of nuttiness. Medium body; average mouthfeel. Overall this is a fantastic beer that really delivers on the label description of being a combination between "the malty goodness of a German lager with the clean crispness of an American ale." 12 fl. oz. bottle from Rich. gripweed57 (2460) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Mahogany brown color with red highlights. Medium-sized creamy beige head. Faint toasted malt nose. Sweet toasted malt flavor is smooth and silky with dark caramel and nutty notes. Slightly resiny hops in finish, though understated. Overall, very drinkable, but unremarkable. bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2014
good flavor, easy drinking and nice finish. Just like the bottle says ’after raking’. Nice fall selection. Thumbs up N3lson1 (1005) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Really, really disappointed with this one from Breckenridge Brewery. Aromas are very sweet with hints of caramel and roasted malts. Tastes very watered down.

Bottle-Pours a deep mahogany with red highlights. About 2 fingers of head that quickly dissipated. Aromas of dried fruit and caramel. Sweet caramel and fruit taste and a good mouth feel. Solid beer, but not my favorite style. UrbanCaveman (193) - Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2014
12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass at approximately 40 degrees F.
A: Pours a dark brown, almost exactly the color of Dr. Pepper, and forms a thin pale head which dissipates quickly. Holding the glass up to sunlight reveals a reddish hue, and one can see the shadows of their fingers on the opposite side of the glass. There is no lacing to speak of, as it falls quickly down the sides of the glass.
S: A rich, toasted malt, of the caramel and nutty variety.
T: Malt bitter strikes right up front, before rounding out into toasted chestnut with toffee hints in the background. Bready malt lingers after the finish.
F: Medium-bodied with a watery finish, and very little carbonation.
O: An enjoyable tour de malt, with the nutty and toffee flavors blending well. downender (8659) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle. Chestnut in colour, with next to no head and slight carbonation. Dar fruit and brown sugar aroma. Flavour was much the same, with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Ok. arn8897 (392) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Pours a dark brown small off white head from a 12 oz bottle. Fairly balanced taste. Little more malty than hoppy. Medium carbonation. Easy drinking nothing special. OsuStu (262) - - OCT 17, 2014
A nearly black pour with a tan head. An earthy, chocolate, coffee aroma, and grains. Aroma is significantly more complex than the taste. Smoky, dark cherries, coffee, chocolate. Finish is pretty smooth, a bit sticky.
