Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 11-25-2001

"A deep mahogany color, Wassail is brewed with four different malts and a blend of Pacific Northwest hops, giving it a malty full body and a pleasantly hoppy finish that appeals to both hop and malt lovers alike. In other words, a Christmas miracle."

Proured a nice dark amber brown with very little foam. The aroma has a strong malty smell and the taste was of a malty with a hint of spice flavor with a smooth finish. There was not much of a bitter after taste, but just enough to balance everything together.

2002 version:

Well, I need to quit hitting these winter beers so damn early in the season, but my self-controll seems to still be on summer vacation. This is another exceptional winter beer. Super dark color which is very difficult to get any amber tones off of, but not as black as Gunniess. Nice piney scent and the taste is out of this world. Good full-flavor hoppiness to this outstanding beer. This is a great winter brew sureto keep me warm through the long and cold rainy season out here in the PNW.

Nice brown color with a hint of ruby. Thin milky head. Great aroma. Nice hop boquet. (Guessing it was dry hopped with centennial or cascade.) Also a hint of spice on the nose. Nutmeg? Nice full body. Warming effect is definately here. Nicely balanced beer as I get some good maltiness with decent hop notes. Has a bitter aftertaste. Nicely rounded winter brew.
