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.

Bottled. Ruby red, not much head. Grassy, hoppy nose with ryeish and fruity notes. Also some weak barnyardish notes can be found. Strong grassy malty and hoppy flavour with some spicy hints. Quite watery palate after all the different stronger ABV stuff. Good for a 4,5% though.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle. Malty aroma, slightly vinous or oxidised. Dark red brown colour, seems clear. Good stable tan head. The flavour is also vinous and oxidised. OK malty and slightly roasted. Subtle creamy aftertaste. OK, I guess, but I am not a fan of oxidised-tasting beers.

Bottled (BB 04/2006)
Clear ruby red color, small off-white head. Rye-malty aroma with some barnyardish notes. Malty, a bit hoppy too. Good palate for a 4.5% brew. Balanced, solid but a bit boring beer.
