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.

Hey not all that bad. Darker in colour with a thin white to tanish head. The nose is malty and simple. Same goes for the taste. Easily drinkable but finishes quite salty.

Good head and spicy nose. Dark amber color good complex flavor. One of the best Sam Adams beers, leaves you wanting more, but with almost seven percent alcohol, be careful.

To begin with the beer had a great aroma that hinted at the complexity of flavors that was to come. However, at times the beer seemed too complex, with so many different spices and flavors that it was often hard to process.

Nothing amazing. It looks nice and has some noticable spices. Flavor was smooth and balanced and the mouth feel was probably the best part of the beer. It left a creamy feeling in the mouth. Good beer, but definately not the best winter seasonal I've had recently.

A complex aroma of spices, including hints of cinnamon. Beautiful copper/amber appearance with a moderate head and lacing. It has a very full set of flavors, spicy and warming. Very good.

fasteddieIX (55) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2004
This is one of the better winter beers I've had. Aromas of fruits and nuts; flavorwise, spices are very apparent, but balance out nicely to leave a nice not-too-bitter and crisp finish

This beer totally blew me away! I have drank Sam Adams for many years and don't usually like it when they try changing things up, but this was sensational! An excellent tasting beer that goes down very smooth with a very enriching quality.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JAN 22, 2004
Nice foamy tan head on a clear amber reddish body. Nose is weak, I only sense a litte malt. Is is quite flavorfull with notes of roasted malt, nutmeg, pepper and caramel with a nice alcohol bite to the finish. Smooth.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 This has a nice palate with festive spices. It was enjoyable but I probably would not buy it but like maybe once a year if that.
