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.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Bottle. Caramel, black pepper, amber malts, alcohol, and some citrus (lemon zest) come out. Slightly sweet in a raisiny kind of way. Great balance of malt, hops, fruit, and spice.

Color is that of a darker version of sam adams Boston lager, small head-did not last. Laced well. This beer tasted like a richer version of the Boston lager with the addition of some of what is reminiscent of christmas spice and orange. Very enjoyable.

Pours a dark amber color. Aroma smells sweet and malty. Not alot of depth. Seems to be malty with a little bit of spice. Easy to drink, but not exciting.

Pours amber brown with a nice head. Aroma is caramel with a little spice. Nice flavor. Slightly sweet with nice spice and good toffee. Could not taste wheat. Thin body. Not what I expect from a Weizen Bock, but I still enjoyed it.

This was OK,but I was expecting a more robust flavor.I sampled a 2003 version in june,and my memory was that it was fairly robust,but I only tried a half a bottle so I could be mistaken. Orange/red when held to a light.Very malty,and spicey. I just tried the Goose island Christmas Ale before this,and that was really good stuff.The winter lager was a letdown.

Bottle. Pours a nice deep brown and holds a nice creamy head. Aroma of spices and nice malt, even some straw in here. Great malty spicy taste. Sam Adams really does make some good stuff. Nice body and good carb with a wonderful warmth on the swallow. I can’t tell you how many of these we have enjoyed while playing pond hockey here in Western PA. Good solid beer.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2004
One of the better Sam Adams brews. Pours a deep reddish brown color with a creamy, frothy head. The aroma is of sweet malts and spices. Nice spricy brew with a hint of smoke. A decent winter warmer.

IndianaRed (3850) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Bottle Pours a deep mahogany with a very full and thick creamy head. lots of heavy lacing. Aroma is a dark and somewhat spicy blend with sewwt malt and maybe a little molassas. Flavor is dark and woody. Toasted wheat and a slight spicy notes. A nice warming flavor that is consistant with the winter seasonals. Finish is clean and smooth, with a sort of sweet wheat aftertaste.
