No Christmas should be without this ale. A very malty flavor that will awake your palate. Nice balance between the hops and malts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle): Pours a clear copper colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, figs, malt, spices and earthy notes. Flavour is lots of caramel, malt, apples, bread with a bit of winter type spices on the finish. Although there’s no trace of alcohol in the aroma or tasting, it gives a nice warming down to the stomach. Very English in its style and perfect for a cold winters night.

Tastes old. Dry. Lots of foam. This is the definition of a beer. Yeasty. Some oxidation. Earthy. Quite drinkable. Thanks Seymour.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Winter welcome ale pours a bronze color with very little head. Their is a sweet, caramel apple like aroma, with hints of a toasty malty undertone. Their is a slight roasted malty undertone in taste, with strong hints of caramel and sweet fresh apples. Easy to drink, and very nice feel, and nice full flavors. Overall a very unique winter warmer, sweet and fruiterer.
