Sweet and Fruity is definatly a great way to describe this ale. It smells like peaches, and the taste continues the peachy trend. This is one of my first ales from Bridgeport and I was fairly impressed. Nothing too exciting, but itís definatly a great beer to sit around a fire and relax with! What a pleasure!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 Light reddish-brown with a very thin head. Faint aroma of hops, alcohol. Medium body, full mouthfeel. Mild flavor of hops, spice, sour. Unusual and not entirely pleasant. Weird aftertaste. The bottle I had two years ago was much better.

Thanks to a trade from pinkzambia. Nice deep red color with no head to speak of. One hell on a nice little unassuming beer. Sweet hard candy small with some toasty aromas. Some cinnamon tp. The taste is equally as pleasant. No hint of bitterness. Present and short aftertaste. Nothing to complex going on here, but sometime you want that.

Malt and nuts. Very English tasting. Would go well with a cheese and assorted nut plate.

Does not do what it says on the bottle. Weak aroma, very malty with a hint of hops. "...winter warmer..." Iím afraid not, the flavor is way to mild and weak for a winter ale, might be ok as a summer ale but leave it on the self during the holidays. It does have a nice label though.

Lighter bodied than I was expecting for a winter beer. Poured from a bottle lighter in color than expected. I'm used to "winter" beers being thick and heavy. This is not. The aroma screamed west coast to me. I specifically smelled and tasted Chinook as flavor/aroma hops. Chinook in a winter warmer? Yes, my friend, BridgePort succeeds. Light is body, and hop character is moderately strong with the bitterness as low. This beer is not thick and syrupy, but crisp and dry. I get plum character in it. Very nice. I need to make a "winter warmer" like this.

Winter warmer. Hop forward - not a ton of sweetness but malty, toasty and nice alcohol warmth

This was an okay beer for the holidays. Fairly smooth for the alcohal content, but very lacking in flavor. I found it to be enjoyable yet forgetable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 Pours an amazingly huge head that quickly dissaptes. Appears very dark, when held to the light is an almost translucent very deep red. Has a wonderfully sweet nose. Very rich and creamy and finishes a bit bitter for a perfect cap to a cold winter's night!
