Beer #311 – AutumnFest by Weyerbacher Brewing Company

AutumnFest by Weyerbacher Brewing Company

What a gorgeous autumn day it was today.  I got a chance to go for a quick 10 mile ride on my lunch break at work…part road…part canal towpath.  It is always nice to be able to get away from the desk and just pedal.

So I figured why not have an autumn themed beer for #311.  AutumnFest by Weyerbacher Brewing Company is that beer.  Brewed in Easton, Pennsylvania…this American Amber or Red Ale has an ABV of 5.4%.

AutumnFest poured a nice amber with a bit of gold to it.  The head was tiny and white.  The color reminded me of autumn.  It had the nose of grains and toasted malts…very bread like.  I took a sip, it was slightly sweeter than I thought going by the smell.  The caramel flavor was pretty prominent along with bread or more like toast flavor.  There was a fruit component in the taste also…I thought apples…but not quite.  It had a dry finish, a medium body, above average carbonation, and was a bit on the crisp side.  It went down real easy.

This was a fairly good beer…not outstanding and not horrible either.  It reminded me more of an Oktoberfest than an American Amber.  Enjoy!
