From a growler. Dark brown with a reddish tinge in the light and a tan-white head that fades to a rim and coating with nice lacing. Malty, corn, light sweetness aroma. Charred malt, caramel, English bitter hop taste. Very good beer that tastes much like Northern Brewer's Caribou Slobber homebrew.

Always a solid seasonal winter beer, Wassail delivers with it’s deep dark appearance and dark creamy head. Very typical of Christmas beers at a very affordable price. You could never go wrong in serving Wassail for your holiday guests. ( and keep a few for yourself )

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2014 Aroma disappointing. Appearance red brown nice. Taste hoppy with caramel tones. Palate good Christmas flavour. Warming but given strength a disappointment. Second pint much better. Good on palate. Aroma still weak getting better.

Cask at the White Swan, Solihull. Poured a clear reddish brown witn a frothy very light tan head. The aroma is rich Rio red berry fruit. The flavour is moderate bitter with a rich over ripe fruit yeast, dry mineral palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Nice dark pour with a thick white head. Feint roasted malt, nutty aroma. Tastes of roasted malt, slightly sweet and nutty with a slightly bitter finish. Very nice.

Delicious. Beer tastes great. Nice and tipsy after one 8 oz. Glass. Do drink. Now.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2014 Nose is subtle so the toasty, nutty flavor surprises to the upside. Not overly complex. What there is the toastiness on a malt and subtle hops base in a pleasingly balanced offering. Assertive without being excessive. The only thing I don’t like is the high ABV.

This is a good winter ale. Aroma could be a little more interesting; however, the taste is spot on with plenty of the roasty richness you look for in an English strong. This finish is rich with a sharp bitter ending. Overall, very nice.
