    Clear light brown, constant foam coming out of bottle. Thus lots of light brown lacing foam. Light caramel aroma, caramel notes in taste, light bitterness. Decent beer. (Velp 201606)

    The LCBO got a bunch of different Fuller’s this Christmas, and this is one of them. Best before date written on back label is 10 OCT 12. Pours a clean copper colour with a nice creamy beige, long-lasting head that creates a beautiful foamy and dirty lace. The aromas are quite grainy with cereal malts and hints of caramel undertones. The mouthfeel is smooth, silky and a bit creamy. The hop appears in the taste, adding a bit of bitterness the whole way, but well-balanced and creating a slightly dry finish. Caramel, biscuit and grain re-appear as the flavours. The spiciness comes from the hop in this one, and not much real spices are found here. An overall easy-drinking winter warmer for those who do not like the cinnamon ones.

    One of the 6 beers brought in as part of the Fuller's release at the LCBO. Not as spicy as some other Winter Warmer from Britain. That's a plus here.

    The beer poured a translucent golden red colour with a generous off-white head that stuck around. The aroma was wet grains, floral hops, toffee, and spice. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was slightly sweet malt, hints of spice, and a citrusy hop finish. Very good beer.

    500 ml bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 5.3%. Copper to amber colour, big to moderate off-white head. Malty and nutty aroma, also notes of toffee and caramel. The flavour has a moderate malty sweetness and nutty and biscuity notes, hints of raisins and caramel. "Dusty" hops in the finish, bitter aftertaste. Quite good.

    Drawn from the tap a dark amber color with a thin but long-lasting tan head. Sweet aromas of caramel malt and fruit. Full, smooth and rich on the palate. Flavors are less assertive than expected, with sweet malt, reserved hops and spice; faint bitterness in the warm finish.

    In tap: Taps a deep chestnut color with some red highlights, modest cap, soft carbonation. Aromas are fruity-spicy lightly sweet. Flavaor is exceptionally discreet in its use of spices and sweet malts...lovely war soft malty sweetness mingles with a spicy-fruity background and demure kent hopping...well balanced without any of the sweetness, spice or hops overpowering the amalgam of all these flavors....franklly the best Winter ale I’ve tasted this year.

    Nice deep amber colour, medium tan head. malty aroma of caramel, toffee with touches of dried fruit. Lot’s of caramel in flavour, hints of toffee and earth with a medium bitter finish.Good balance and mouthfeel but it’s not the most exciting winter ale I’ve sampled

    Bottled. Dark copper coloured mediumsized brown thick creamy head. Strong malty nose with hints of caramel and cookies as well as a bit of roast. Strong roasted malt in flavour along with some hops in finish. Caramellish hints also there as well as weak plummyness. Quite pleasant, but the roastflavour is a bit too aggressive. 7 6 6 8 6

    Cask. Deep amber colour with mediumsized slightly off-white head. Lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, some roast, caramel, mild spices, nectar and wood. Flavour is the same with some mild licorice and dry dark fruits. Wellbalanced and pleasant. 8 8 8 8 8

    Dark amber in color with a dense full head. Rich malty aroma invites you in to take a sip. Big, burnt malt flavor with some bittering to go along with it is delicious. Roasted, burnt toast aftertaste is a nice capper. Very good effort from Fullers here.
