COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hearty British style strong ale with a deep chestnut color. This warming elixer complements stews, soups, roasts and wild game. It's magically delicious.

Well done strong ale, with lots of good malt and hop character. Brewed with ringwood yeast, giving the beer that distinct earthiness, and buttery notes of diacetal, that is appropriate in British beer styles. Wizzard Winter Ale pours to a beautiful, bright, deep amber color, with a thick and creamy white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose s excellent, with good aromas of pale and caramel malt, paried with some earthy yeast aroma, and some grassy hop aroma. The palate is firm with good pale and stewed malt flavor, paired with hints of butter, and some earthy yeast flavor. The Wizzard finishes with more good malt and yeast flavor up front, then ends with a nice punch of grassy hop bitterness that lingers. A hearty and tasty winter brew, this beer would work well with soups and stews, and makes a good after work drink.

Beautiful deep copper color with a thick white head. MAlty arom with a touch of hops. Toasted malt and carmel come through before the hop bittereness kicks in, Very complex medium mouth feel beer. One of the best "Winter" ales out there.

very nice and true to style, dark amber, resembles Young's Special London Ale. Excellent balance, crisp. Lots of Fuggles and Goldings? Alcohol just faintly emerges. Glad I bought a sixpack

Clear deep brown, nice beige head, and lots of lace. Sweet fruity nose and Ringwood yeast is quite noticeable, malts also right there. Start sweet, middle creamy fresh, and a quite pleasant bitter almost dry finish. Thanks Venom

Cask at Mahars. Nice little bit of a bitter hoppiness, some what orange-rind in a good way. Aroma is not overbearing from the cask, but thatís typical of a cask beer.

Big sweet fruity nose. Deep orange-copper hue. Nice foamy beige head. Lightly fruity, butterscotch, light dustiness, creamy body, finihses very smooth, light bitterness. Quite drinkable, great session brew. With warmth this beer grows oh so seductive. Magically delicious, oh yes.

Very, very awesome. This was my first Middle Ages beer, and I've been enchanted with their labels and the whole medieval thing. I didn't know what to expect, but i was pleasantly surprised to find that it's extremely british in style, all the way down to the particular hopping. I thought it tasted a lot like Brakspear Vintage Henley. Strong flavor, agressive hoppiness, a bit of alcohol taste, and a smooth sweetness. Right on, brothers.
