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.

Very average winter a bit of grainy sweetness std look and body. Not bad but not memorable.

Westmeister (1524) - 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 (1053) - 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 (798) - 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.

bottle. amber with small head. if you mixed a bunch of mediocre beers together and threw in some spice, I’d imagine you might end up with something like this. it’s a collection of flavors rather than a cohesive beer.

HighlanderOne (958) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Poured from bottle. Aroma of cinnamon, vanilla, spice. Copper colored with tan head. Malt, vanilla and honey flavors with cinnamon and clove as well as a fair amount of pine and floral hops. Wasn’t diggin this as first but it has grown on me. Good stuff.

More like a Marzen than a winter warmer. Lot’s of sweet malty notes backed by some hop bitterness. A bit thin for a winter warmer, surprisingly so at 7% alcohol.

maxwelldeux (3065) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a fairly small head. Nose is fairly malty, actually with a hint of sweetness. Taste has an earthy note to it and seems very malty. Meh.

SSSteve (3661) - - NOV 23, 2012
bottle. clear amber with a medium, fluffy, cream colored head. inviting malty nose balanced with floral hops and honey. flavor has a large amount of bittering hops with a sweet honey-like toasted malt character. medium body with slick mouthfeel. highly sessionable at 7%.
