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.

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 (1849) - 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 (5984) - 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.

brewtopia 11-12-05. This was weak all around. Poured tan with off white head. Nose was fruity and spicy, when I found it. Taste was ok, alcohol was weak.

hopscotch (8540) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2005 Bottle... Clear, amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. Soapy, yeasty nose. The flavor is lightly bitter. Medium-bodied and dry with moderate carbonation. Boring finish.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Clear dark copper with a small off white head, notes of spice, some malt, in the aroma, flavor is fairly malty, some notes of roated malts, lightly bitter finish, some floral notes detected, slightly watery. Needs some improvement.

On tap at Coleís. I was quite surprised to see a winter ale on tap right now but whatever, Stone releases their biggest beers in the summer. Amber in color, creamy beige head. Nicer balance between the malt and hops, sweetish malt up front followed by some piney hops, a little bready. Medium bodied. Not bad.
