Fat Head's Autumn Fire
Fat Head's in Pittsburgh recently was the Autumn Fire, a smoked marzen. The beer pours an amber color with a thin filmy white head. The aroma is malty with some caramel notes and a hint of smoke. The taste is dry and smoky with caramel, a hint of orange, vanilla, pepper and grass. Overall, it’s put together like a campfire. The alcohol content is not available online, but I would guess it to be around 5.5% ABV. Yet another solid beer from Fat Heads, this one incorporates the perfect amount of smoke to what can be a non-experimental style. The extra addition really rounds out all of the flavors and is quite enjoyable.
