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.

A decent seasonal, though some of sam's other seasonals are better efforts, in my opinion.

A spicy nose to it. Dark brown-amber. Thin head that falls away quickly. Sweet and spicy gingery. A good beer to have once and awhile. However I can't see myself having it again for sometime.

I really enjoyed this one. On the sweet side with a great flavor and nice after taste. I had it on tap though, which I normally enjoy much more than bottled. Next to Sam Adams Oktoberfest, this is probably the best Sam Adams that I've tried so far.

Very enjoyable winter brew with a beautiful clear reddish brown color. Flavor abounds this beer. NOt overly bitter, with jus the right balance of malt. I like this beer. Try with a nice large plate of spicy nachos.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2003
Very sweet and full bodied. About as drinkable as SA Lager. Not too bad for being mass produced and widely available. I doubt I'll try it again though.

Rich deep brown color. Small head. Slightly hoppy, with hints of nutmeg. Mildly sweet, some bite.

This has been my favorite beer all winter. Every bottle makes me love it more...nice overall taste with the hints of spices that warm you through the winter...Perfect on a cold day or night or really anytime. One of my favorites!!

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2003
Fruit, with a hint of spice in the nose, reddish, with a small toffee head. Malt, caramel flavours, touch of cinnamon, and very mild pepper. Smooth body, dry spicey finish. A tasty lager, but not a Weizen Bock.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2006 This dark full bodied brew poured a decent head with staying power. The malt and spices gave it a decent flavor, but overly hoppy finish. 11/25/06 Had again at the Distillery and enjoyed it more and I’m upping the rating a few points. On tap the finish was less hoppy and smoother.
