COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blue Point Brewing’s 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.

Undated 12 oz bottle served in a Trois Pistoles snifter. A: The beer is a deep reddish brown color with some fine looking carbonation bubbles, all covered by a good sized off-white head. The head reduces to a lasting partial coat and ring, and plenty of lacing is left on the glass. S: The aroma features sweet malts, with a good bit of caramel, and traces of hops and light floral and smoke notes. T: The taste is a step towards an imperial amber, with flavors of darker roasted malts than usual, Some coffee and smoke in the finish and aftertaste. M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly dry finish. O: Light in body and ABV for a winter seasonal, with the alcohol very well hidden, it’ is darker and richer than average for an amber ale.

Very drinkable ale....pours dark amber with a decent beige head, that sticks around for a while. Nothing bitter or bold...not sure I would say that it was robust, nor would chase a way a cool winter night....not a bad brew though...

Wonderful looking brew. Good pour with a dark amber color, white head, and good lacing. Not really my style when it comes to taste and aroma becuase I’m a hop guy. Good beer.

PhillyBeer2112 (2528) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2013
A fair beer, amber color, spicy hop nose and flavors, somewhat cookieish malts, well balanced and drinkable. Nothing stands out here, doesn’t shout, just drinks.

Westmeister (1780) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with medium bubbly tan head. Smell is clean caramel malts, light hop presence, slight mineral. Taste is crisp malts, fruity, caramel, light hops. Pretty nice amber

GTAEgeek (1238) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Dark copper with a small, beige head. The aroma is caramel, cola, and a pilsener hop profile. Bitter up front, a little sour, and some mild sweetness in the finish. Medium body, watery, and fairly smooth. Overall, this is a mediocre beer, with conflicting flavors, and weak aroma. Not bad ... just nothing much here.

Gachupines (907) - USA - DEC 28, 2012
Amber color with a thin white head. Aroma has hints of toasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is light chocolate malt with some mild toasted oats. Slight metallic aftertaste, finish is a little on the watery side. Still, not a bad session beer.
