COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blue Point Brewingís Winter Ale is a hearty and robust amber ale. Brewed to chase away the chill of a cool winter night. Made with Pale, Vienna, crystal and chocolate malt. This uncommon amber is only brewed during the cold months of the year. Winter Ale is an extremely popular seasonal specialty. Enjoy the tasty balance of malt and hops. Remember this special ale leaves with Winter.

Thanks to weeare138. Pours a rusty orange amber with a small off white head. Aroma of sweet malts, picking up some lighter hops. Flavors of the same. Nothing too breakthrough but a middle of the road Amber Ale.

Rich white head. Fruity lager aroma, almost like a Czech. Rich in CO2. I think I could taste a bit of rice in this brew, both in aroma and taste. Slightly thin body and a bit oxidized perhaps.

Bottle shared with GregClow, tupalev & jerc -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear dark amber with an average size diminishing off-white head. Very mild, fairly well balanced aroma of sweet malt and hops. Ridiculously mild flavour follows the aroma and adds a bit of spice and fruit but just isnít that good. Medium bodied. Just plain average.

This is a good beer! Nice and hppy, very full flavored for its strength. Pretty low alcohol for a winter ale, though.

GregClow (2902) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of tupalev. (My notes are pretty sketchy on this one - it was pretty late in the tasting...) Amber-brown with a small head. Aroma and flavour are both nice and well-balanced, with a good sweetness and fresh hops, bit it didnít really say "winter" to me.

Gorbalev (2927) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2005
Bottle shared Jerc, Hogtown Harry, GregClow, and blankboy. I think I brought it. Medium brown, small white head. Subtle aroma with only a hint of sweet malt. Taste was quite ordinary as well; sweet, with a slight hint of cinnamon and some hops in the middle and end. Very easy to drink and flavourful enough, but also pretty unremarkable.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 Dark amber body with a small white head. Muted hops and malt in the aroma., not much there. Mild hoppy bitterness with ambiguous citrus and resin. Average palate. Undistinguished.

shadey (1904) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Amber color as to be expected. Thin white head with some lacing. Aroma is different. Lots of scents here... a little sour, a little doughy, a little alcohol which is surprising for less than 5 percent. Flavor is dry. you know the hops are there, but they donít really show themselves in the flavor. An odd amber, but definitely one that would stand out in the pack.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Deep clear amber with a smallish beige diminishing head. Mild aroma of slightly sour malt, hints of hops and fruit, light chocolate emerges as it warms, but itís seems a little off. Taste isnít bad - slightly candyish malt with a chocolate milkshake character, a hint of peat to counter the sweetness - like a slightly spicy brown ale. Mouthfeel is ever so slightly syrupy, flat, extremely watery. Not really bad, but a bit of a miss, Iím afraid.
