Your slippers poke out from the end of the comforter as you watch the flames lick up from the fireplace, and between your hands you clasp a spirited pint of Fireside Winter Warmer, with its deep amber hue so perfectly complementing the kindling glow in the hearth beyond. Although the frozen air outside may rustle shivery drafts within, your animated amber ale, with its soul-warming embrace of 8% alcohol, pours smooth, malty and sweet and warms you inside with the charm of the fire flickering sprites about the room. And as you contemplate those shadows dancing on the walls, you'll also contemplate your ale's effortless unfolding of velvety caramel and just a kiss of toast and nuts. And if you've brewed this winter classic with the optional spices, then you'll revel in your winter wassail, with its enticing flavors of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg to propel you beside the fire through the most chilling winter nights!
