Bottle. Pours a medium/dark brown with medium tan head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is of roasted malts. Flavor is nutty, roasty, with a bit of caramel sweetness up front, and bitterness in the finish. Pretty good for a cold winter night.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours mahogany with a light tan head. Aroma is predominately malty with bread, caramel, Walkers shortbread, and spruce hops. Flavor is caramel, nuts, brown bread, cocoa powder, and honey. Hops come in the flavor as well to balance out, adding a spicy hop profile to the beer. On the palate the beer is medium-bodied, smoothy, and creamy.

December 23, 2009 Full Sail Wassail 12 oz bottle Poors a dark brown, like strong iced tea with little to no head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Smells herbyóof a lavender bush. Minor carbonation bubbles. Pleasing bitter aftertaste of coffee and bitter hops that creeps from the back of the tongue to the front, ending in a sour note. Taste of molasses, and brown sugar without the sugar. This beer is in the semi-regular rotation. We like it.

This is full of holiday cheer. Roasted malt, spices, and bitter hops. Hoppy, toasted nuttiness, toffee, raisins and roasted flavors. Rich and flavorful. This is a nice seasonal.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2002
Spicey, hoppy aroma. Very creamy in palate. Nice flavour, but kind of watered down. Sweet, well balanced. Not bad.

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2003
2002-Nice clean amber brew. Aromas of hops and light spice. Nice mouthfeel with malt countering the hops and spice nicely.

stephen (308) - California, USA - DEC 2, 2002
Bottle. Mahogany, small head with tight bubbles. Mildly carbonated. Sweet aroma. Flavor showed malt upfront followed by a non-offensive metallic astringency finishing bittersweet. Low hops with a lingering, nonoffensive metallic aftertaste. Medium body, crisp finish. Perhaps I could have let this one warm up a little to get different flavors.

redgold07 (308) - Irving, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Pours a dark ruby color into the glass, with a smallish off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malt and hops. Taste is a mix of hoppy earthiness and bitterness, with light sugar and malt. The first time I heard the term "Wassail," it was referring to hot spiced apple cider mixed with spiced rum. 12 oz. beer.

DMLINAZ (305) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Pours deep brown, almost black, from a bottle; nice aroma of malts and hops together. Nice flavor that is suitable for the season; caramel malts with a hoppy punch. Better than the other 2 Iíve had from Full Sail ,the IPA and the Pale Ale.

burpfrank (299) - carpinteria, California, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Small head.Nice ruby-brown color.Aroma was not much,but I have a cold,so I really canít say too much about it.The taste was a nice toasty,somewhat bitter,caramel without the sweetness.KInda sticky palate,which I find desirable.Finishes with a nice bitter hops,but could be a tad more hoppy for me.
