I originally had it earlier this year. Since Autumn Ale is brewed in the fall, I wondered how fresh a January bottle would be. Being that Autumn Ale is a slightly above average beer in my opinion, it wasn’t something that I was going out of my way for but a situation presented itself, so why not.
Hops are nice in the beer: floral hops dominate citrus hops. These come through in the aroma, especially early. Mid beer I couldn’t find them anywhere. Autumn Ale had transitioned to a malt forward beer: very sweet. The taste originally had the malts but those seemed to go south along with the aroma.
Another year and the same result. I feel I rated this beer fairly earlier this year. I would have it again but, as I stated, I not going to go out of my way for it. Enjoy!
