Though the style is loosely defined and examples will vary, winter warmers are typically malty sweet, softly hopped and frequently flavored with mixed winter spices, fruits or other additions. They are named for the traditional warming effect achieved during consumption thanks to elevated alcohol content, on average anywhere from five to eight percent abv.

So next time Old Man Winter has got you down, or just plain cold, try warming up with some seasonal brews. Before you know it spring will be here, and these beers will be gone, so drink up while you can!
 

Superb 91 Points - Highly Recommended

Full Sail Wassail 

Dark copper in color with a solid tan head upon pouring. Gorgeous spice aromas of pine tar, brown sugar, nutmeg, rich malt and soft hops fill the bouquet and follow through to the round, full mouth. The balance is superb, with everything in appropriate balance and playing together nicely. The finish offers a soft cocoa dusting and a slight warming sensation, leaving you perfectly poised for another.
