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.

Clear mahogany with a fluffy off-white head. The aromas is one of spicy malts along with hops - pretty balanced. Donít be deceiced though! It has quite a bite for a winter brew (perhaps, itís the hops I wasnít expecting). I could taste the higher alcohol in it which I wished they would have done a better job disguising it. When it is all said and done, after the interestingly bitter taste, it leaves a sweet coating on the mouth. I didnít really like this one.

2006 Bottle: Pours deep ruby hinging on brown with a wonderful bottle condition induced, creamy head. Lots of lacing taboot. The nose shows little hop presence, heavy with caramel and gingerbread malts. Mild esthers and vegetal DMS linger. Full mouthfeel is almost chewy - nice for a moderate ABV beer. Molasses and brown sugar create a really sweet experience, but come off one dimensional in the end. This just doensít have the depth Iíve come to enjoy from Old Ales.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2008 Draught. Mild sweet aroma, strawberry and cherry. Dark ruby with patchy off-white head. Opens sweet and muddled, finishes sour and slightly offensive. Cloying and dry palate.

Bottle. Sweet and spicy nose, some caramel. Dark ruby-brown with a steady head and good lacing. Somewhat chalky with notes of cherries and caramel. Very dry finish, somewhat harsh. Gets more undrinkable with every sip.

Bottle pours a deep, rich mahogany color with a foamy tan head. Sweet fruity and malty aroma. Sweet flavor initially that quickly turns slightly sour with a bitter finish.

Draft at Pony with James, Andy, Feng. Pour was not memborable, very thin head, and I donít remember there being very much of an aroma either. This was thin-bodied and easy drinking, but wasnít a "good" beer in any other way. I tasted a little bit of a grainy maltiness.

Good beer, nothing outstanding. Aroma is dominated by malt and light spice. Medium bodied, with light carbonation, malty/spicy, with a slight burn in the finish.
