The recipe for Wassail actually changes year to year, depending on brewer John Harrisís mood. The 1999 vintage was only average, but the 2001 vintage was extraordinary. Generally Wassail is on the highly hoppy end, but only average alcohol for a wintera ale.

Great winter ale. Great combination of spices for the cold holidays. Up here in eastern Washington, we have cold weather 7 months out of the year. This is a great blend of winter spices with great smell and taste. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Wonderfully complex and hoppy flavor, pleasant aroma and perfect scotch appearance. Much like a wee heavy in some respects--heavy, muggy body with asome candy and malt--though lots of hops. A delightful surprise again and again and a fantastic complement to many meals. Certainly one of the best holiday offerings and possibly Full Sail's best ale.

Another great winter brew. not as sharp or full-bodied as the dark strength of the WinterNakt, but a pleasent malty flavor, with a paletable aftertaste.

very nice for those cold nights when all you need to do is get a good buzz going, this certainly has the alcohol content for that.

Deep amber colored full bodided beer with a beige head. Malty aroma. Sweet up front with a bitter finish.

Not bad. I liked it after the second beer. The first beer (which counts) left a strange but welcome taste.
