Brewed for the holiday season, Wassail is a delight with itís warm flavors and festive holiday packaging. Itís a lush, garnet colored winter ale that has a malty full-body and a pleasant hoppy finish. Sure to warm the hearts of malt and hop lovers alike, Wassail is brewed with a 4 types of malts and is hopped with a special blend of imported hops.

This is one of those good to drink holiday beers if it is what you have available. If you have had many Winter Ales this one will leave a little disappointed.

Bottle. Pours an ebony color with a one-inch tan head. Malty, somewhat floral aroma with a hint of evergreen. Taste is malty, a bit roasted, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Good hops balance. It has a deep flavor, with lots of character, that really speaks to the tastebuds. Soft mouthfeel. I’d like to pair this brew with a hearty stew or a stroganoff dish.

12 ounce bottle. This ale was a beauty. It poured a brilliant dark red with an inch thick cream-colored head. The head stuck around and left some nice lacing behind. The aroma and flavor were both a mixture of molasses, light grain, resin, light woodiness, brown sugar, and some undetermined spices. There was also a subtle dark fruit flavor that I am almost convinced was cranberry. The initial flavor was a heavy sweetness that allowed some bitterness to squeak in on the finish. Overall, I would describe this ale as "heavy." It sat heavy on the tongue and against the palate, with only soft carbonation to lighten the heaviness. It was heavy on flavor, balancing malts and hops rather well. It was heavy on its malts. This is what a winter ale should taste like!

pours deep mahogany, with a thin head, sweet aroma of plums and rasins which carry through in the flavor, rasiny with a balnced bitterness, a very drinkable x-mas ale

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2003 Deep red with small, quickly diminishing head. Spicy and malty, with a good deal of burnt flavors. Still has a bit of hop kick , especially for a Christmas ale, but they aren't overdone.

(Tap). Nice very dark brown. Nice feeling on the palate. Has mild chocolate taste without feeling too much like coffee. Very enjoyable brew, hope to have another soon.

This beer has a very sharp hoppy flavor that really hits your tongue with some force. It really reminds me of a pine tree, which is nice in a way since I miss western oregon so much. There is also a slight malt base flavor to it that makes sure this beer isnít completely bitter. Not to bad a beer from full sail.

My favorite winterbrew this year, great malty, chocolatly taste with a spicy english hop finish. This years batch has a great balance of hop flavor and bitterness with a chewy malt body. Well done!

Bottle. Appearance: Murky brown with a thin, fizzy head. Moderate lacing around the sides. Aroma: A nose of brown sugar, malts and a hint of spice. Flavor: Nuts, caramel, spice, with a little alcohol on the backside. Palate: Medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall: Nothing too impressive. Note: It is a winter seasonal, but I see nothing wrong with drinking it in the middle of summer.
