A beer smooth enough to help you enjoy whatever this season brings your way. This original recipe has everything you’d be expecting in a traditionally brewed Mild Ale. It’s no too dark, it’s not too strong, and it has just the right amount of flavour to last through even the longest winter nights.

Pours a nice thick creamy head and has a coppery, light brown appearance. Somewhat weak lacing. Aromas of light roasted malts, nuts and toasty malts. Flavours mostly of nutty, roasted malts with some hints of caramel and very mild grains. Nice slick and oily mouthfeel with a slight warming sensation on the palate. Perfect drink on a mild wintery day, as the beer name suggests. Pretty decent brew from Okanagan.

The beer pours a translucent dark copper colour with a thin white ring for a head. The aroma is caramel, grains, and some earthy hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is roasted malt, weak caramel sweetness, and a metallic bitterness in the finish.

341mL bottle, pours a hazy reddish brown with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out toasted malt and crusty rye bread. Flavour brings out toasted bready and toasted malt. Nothing offensive, but not very thrilling. Pass.

Pours a clear mohagany with a finger or so of fizzy tanned head. The bew holds more carbonation than expected and I got some spotted lacing. The nose is roasted and sweet with a few notes of raisins and some brown sugar and you can easily spot the hops packing a mild piny feature. On the tongue, the brew holds nice roasted and nutty elements paired with mild hops spotted in the nose. Of course, don’t expect to get the warmth and feel of a winter warmer.. because this isn’t one.I raise an eyebrow when I read reviews taking a toll on the aqueous feel of the brew because, this is exactly what you’re supposed to get out of a mild ale. It’s a great compromise for a cool fall afternoon and fired up BBQ. Cheers!

Dans mon livre à moi, des bières qui se nomment "Winter Ale" se doivent d’être liquoreuses, avec une forte teneur en alcool, question de réchauffer les coeurs pendant les soirées les plus glaciales de la saison froide. Okanagan Spring eux, ont décidé d’apposer ce titre sur une Mild ... on aura tout vu. De couleur cuivrée et assez foncée, la rétention de la mousse brunâtre est assez faible. Le bouquet est constitué principalement de céréales à la fois rôties et sucrées, trop même. En bouche, le sucre est encore trop présent, quoique quelques touches de noisettes grillées vient percer au travers de cet amas de glucose. Un peu trop aqueuse, mince, même métallique. Rien de super impressionnant ici.

Bottle. 2$ on sale at La Fromagerie. A clear deep amber brown. Bready light malty caramel. Fairly full bodied. The taste is balanced maltiness - soft and easy.

Une bouteille de 341ml. Un liquide ambrée avec un nez sucré. Du caramel collant à souhait. Des saveurs de caramel avec une touche métallique. Une bière commerciale sans intérêt. Rien ne justifie le nom Winter Ale.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 Bouteille 341 ml. 4.8%. Couleur brune reflets rougeâtres, mousse blanche-beige mince. Arôme de grains, caramel. En bouche, un peu de toffee, cassonnade, céréales, finale assez sèche. Se boit bien.

Bouteille de 341 ml dégustée chez mes parents. Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée foncée avec faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de caramel brûlé avec une pointe fruitée. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #5504)

Drank from the bottle, aroma of new house as we were moving someone in. Taste is nutty, lagerish. Nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
