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, dont expect to get the warmth and feel of a winter warmer.. because this isnt one.I raise an eyebrow when I read reviews taking a toll on the aqueous feel of the brew because, this is exactly what youre supposed to get out of a mild ale. Its a great compromise for a cool fall afternoon and fired up BBQ. Cheers!

Dans mon livre moi, des bires qui se nomment "Winter Ale" se doivent dtre liquoreuses, avec une forte teneur en alcool, question de rchauffer les coeurs pendant les soires les plus glaciales de la saison froide. Okanagan Spring eux, ont dcid dapposer ce titre sur une Mild ... on aura tout vu. De couleur cuivre et assez fonce, la rtention de la mousse bruntre est assez faible. Le bouquet est constitu principalement de crales la fois rties et sucres, trop mme. En bouche, le sucre est encore trop prsent, quoique quelques touches de noisettes grilles vient percer au travers de cet amas de glucose. Un peu trop aqueuse, mince, mme mtallique. 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 ambre avec un nez sucr. Du caramel collant souhait. Des saveurs de caramel avec une touche mtallique. Une bire commerciale sans intrt. Rien ne justifie le nom Winter Ale.

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

Tastes lighter than most winter ales so not as thick or as resembling of chocolate milk. Easy to drink and lightly carbonated.
