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.

Malty and sweet, but could be thicker. This is still a macrobrewed beer. Decent flavor, but can’t compete with its microbrewed cousins.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2012 Beautiful warm, roasty brown color with light airy head. Enticing nutty aroma. Excellent spicy, roast-malt flavorings.

Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2002
A very beutiful beer with a dark amber color and a beutiful lasting head. The aroma is very fruity (almost like an ale) and also sweet and spicy. It has a very filling taste with a very complex sweetness - it’s very hard to tell that its been brewed on wheat malt - there are some smoked and caramel notes contained. And it ends on a nice bitterness that lingers. All in all a very fine beer.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Dark chestnut color with a rocky off-white head. Slightly sweet, the various winter spices shine through. No one spice dominates and all mesh nicely. A slight rise in bitterness near the swallow keeps you coming back for another sip. A medium-bodied, easy drinking, winter beer equally at home by itself or with heartier dinner fare.

Clear and deep amber, with minimal head. Very malty aroma and flavor. Mostly caramel, with hints of vanilla. Wheat is detectable, but only nominally.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 11, 2002
Cloudy brown in color, small head and little lacing. Aroma was malty, maybe some hints of apples. Flavor seems weird to me, like sour apples almost. I don’t know if it was a bad tap or not, though - may call for a re-rate.

A good beer. Not too sweet, a hint of spice and a little alcohol in the background. Nice looking beer. Nice doughy aroma while pouring that changes to a spicy, malty smell after sitting in the glass for a few minutes. Nice looking beer, medium-dark red with a nice beige head. The finish could be better. A good but forgettable beer.
