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.

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

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

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Bottled - Dark reddish amber in color with a decent off-white head. Malt and spice in the aroma with little in the way of hops. OK, but not one of the better "winters" that are available.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 I used to look forward to this one every year back in the 90’s. Now days I find it pleasant but no longer one I will seek out. +++Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a medium brown color with a large tan head. The aroma is sweet, malty, and vaguely spicy. The flavor is sweet, minty and malty. Medium palate. Slightly sour on the aftertaste. Not a bad winter lager.

Let me say just what a treat it has been to find a Sam Adams Winter Sampler pack in May and it not be skunky. Dark brown brew with a foamy tan head. Malted wheat and fruit aromas. Bitter and wheat flavor. Full and warming palate.
