The Ballard brewery first brewed Wassail as a draught beer for Christmas in 1980. It became so popular that it is now a permanent beer in the Ballard s range of beers. Along with being wonderful to drink it is also great to cook with in both sweet and savory dishes. When the weather is cold and the snow drifting, the brewery suggests mulling it with spices and a little sugar. Ballard s uses whole flower hops in Wassail and bottle conditions it with yeast and sugar to emulate a cask conditioned beer. This full-bodied brew enters with a large rocky light beige head perched on an attractive tawny beer. The aroma is complex with a delightful mixture of sweet malt, dried fruit, and spices balanced with a nice dose of hops. Juicy malt caresses the palate and reluctantly finishes dry and bittersweet. Wassail is a strong, warming brew to curl up near the fire with.

This clone recipe was created in 2000.
