Always a solid seasonal winter beer, Wassail delivers with itís deep dark appearance and dark creamy head. Very typical of Christmas beers at a very affordable price. You could never go wrong in serving Wassail for your holiday guests. ( and keep a few for yourself )

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2014 Aroma disappointing. Appearance red brown nice. Taste hoppy with caramel tones. Palate good Christmas flavour. Warming but given strength a disappointment. Second pint much better. Good on palate. Aroma still weak getting better.

Cask at the White Swan, Solihull. Poured a clear reddish brown witn a frothy very light tan head. The aroma is rich Rio red berry fruit. The flavour is moderate bitter with a rich over ripe fruit yeast, dry mineral palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Nice dark pour with a thick white head. Feint roasted malt, nutty aroma. Tastes of roasted malt, slightly sweet and nutty with a slightly bitter finish. Very nice.

loubar (150) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 4, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2014 Nose is subtle so the toasty, nutty flavor surprises to the upside. Not overly complex. What there is the toastiness on a malt and subtle hops base in a pleasingly balanced offering. Assertive without being excessive. The only thing I donít like is the high ABV.

This is a good winter ale. Aroma could be a little more interesting; however, the taste is spot on with plenty of the roasty richness you look for in an English strong. This finish is rich with a sharp bitter ending. Overall, very nice.

"good winter beer. i think this is prototypical spiced old ale, which is to say itís quite tasty. very malty up front, but still has enough hops for a slightly bitter finish. well done."
