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.

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. Produce Place, 1.49

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

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.

(12oz bottle) Pours brown with tan head. Aroma of cocoa, caramel, and some light citrus. Taste is bitter with a malt backbone. Light to medium bodied. Oily texture and bitter finish. Not bad.

Deep red to brown color. Small white head. Aroma reminded me of my grandmother's cabbage rolls. Flavor started out strongly as grapefruit. That (surprisingly) faded very quickly. Mellowed out incredibly in the middle to a malty sweetnes and finished with only a slight bit of hop flavor. Very unique.

Very dark pour with lighter brown edges. Big head and nice lace. Mostly sweet malts in the aroma, not too big of a nose, slight hops. Roast malts in the flavor, some fruit and finished off with a bit of bittering hops. Not too bad of a ESA.
