I wasnít as big a fan of this as other Christmas ales Iíve had. Thick, malty mouthfeel that constrasts with the spicy hops. Clean finish. Not too interesting.

Bottle--My beer was a black color with brown highlights along the edges. It does leave a small head through out the drink with a nice amount of lacing. The aroma was of raisin and cider. The taste was hoppier than I expected without any of the Christmas spices. A dissapointment, still good, but not at all what I hoped, guess Iíll have to find another single to confirm.

Not exactly sure why this is so highly rated. Tried this both hot and cold today and neither was very good. Pours a deep amber red brown color with a small soapy tan head. Smells of malt and spices and maybe cloves? Tastes like malt and spice and hops. It is very unbalanced though and just not so great.

My standards are set pretty high for wassail. Put there by mother’s homemade wassail (80 proof I’m sure, and it tasted like Kool-Aid), I’ve found that breweries’ attempts at Wassail leave me wanting...more. Mostly, more of the homemade stuff, the real stuff, brewed in a pot on the stove with the fruit and all. It comes as no surprise that the Full Sail Wassail is also something of a letdown. It’s a brown drink with a thin head, and a flurry of chunky sediment with no other noticeable symptoms in the pour. The aroma is muted and quiet, drifting with a little cranberry, a little chocolate and a little malts, but with little else in its scent. The taste is fine, but really smacks of malts, malts and more malts, with a slight astringency, a mild dose of booze, and a shell of chocolate flavor coating the whole thing. I’m still missing the homemade stuff, but also wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to a lay drinker. It’s simple but to me, very boring.

I didnít think much of the ale at beerfest last week in Orlando. It was labeled a winter beer on the table. Not as good as their lager

12 oz bottle - Sweet malty aroma and flavor. Hoppy flavor with sweet bitter snap to the palate. Dark beer wtih small tan head. Pretty good overall.

6-pack from PCC. I thought I liked this beer more than it turns out I actually do. Pours a deep brown and smells slightly sour. Thereís a tang in it that I find unpleasant, however itís malty enough not to really bother me all that much. Pretty good bang for buck as far as ABV is concerned. Recommend BridgePortís Ebenezer for something that tastes similar but better.
