Wassail, a festical to celebrate wonter and the beer that goes with it, predates the Christian era. Winter Welcome is vintage-dated with a special label each year, and was first shipped to the UD in 1990 - it was the first imported winter seasonal beer. Serve in a a traditional Sam Smith tulip or nonik glass for the holidays. Winter Welcome has a honey-amber colored, creamy head of small bubbles, floral aroma and delicious caramel malt flavor with great finesse. Fine hop aroma finish and a fruity note from fermentation in opne-topped stone "Yorkshire Squares."
