COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold and rich, with a touch of holiday spice. The first thing one notices about a Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is the deep ruby color. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The cinnamon, ginger, and hint of citrus from the orange peel blend with the roasty sweetness of the malts to deliver a warming, spicy flavor. On the palate Samuel Adams Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with the season.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Pours out a lovely ruby red color, with a nice, lasting tannish head. Aroma is delightful, with loads of spices, very sweet, and dark, lush with dark fruits, plums, grapes. A rich cornucopia of fruits and spice. On the palate, we feel a warm rush of hops, and the thick, luscious malt shows up immediately. Very pleasant recurring finish, notes of fruit, spice, and nuts return again and again. A little thin in body, but then, it’s plenty full for a lager.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Bottle: This beer is a pretty good deal in the colder months of the year. Dark reddish/ brown with tan head. Aroma: spice, wheat, yeast. Tastes spicey, malty, and is very smooth and creamy with the wheat adding many of those qualities.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2004
This brew has been aged for a year, not by me but by the store, i noticed the old style label. Nice spicy wheat aroma, very sweet with a hint of caramel. Pours a darker reddish color with a nice foamy off-white head that leaves good lacing. Taste was a big let down though. The spice hardly came through at all in this beer and there was just a slightly bitter taste and that was all. Almost a hint of sour apple near the end with some bitterness that lingers. I think this beer should not have been aged.

I enjoy any of the holiday or winter brews. Spice is a great addition when the coldness comes. I just happened upon some more Winter Lager. Great malt flavor. Nice dark color. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2004 This my favorite seasonal Sam, it has a great warm taste that is perfect for the winter time. It has a nice malty taste with a good lingering palate, like a creamy double bock

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 15, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2005 Samuel Adams...always a good decision. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is classic lager with spice. Flavor is present, but nothing spectacular. Spices, good malt character, some grassy hops towards the end. Re-rate (previous rating kept for my own amusement): Samuel Adams...always a good decision. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma: mild chocolate, wheat, and caramel.. Solid malt body, but still not as thick as I would like. Tastes like a wheat beer mixed with Samuel Adams Double Bock.

A good brew from Sam adams. Pours a lovely fall color with a beautiful head that just lingers. Nose is quite bocky. In fact smells like a Salvator to me. Notes of wheat and lager yeast. Spicy and yet the wheat takes the pungent kick out of how bocky it could be. Taste is excellent. Honestly really reminds me of more of a doppelbock than a single. Very tasty. Good brew grat
