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.

This is an interesting spiced beer. It's a fairly heavy darker beer. I enjoy only one at a time, otherwise it's be a little overpowering.

This is the kind of beer that you only have one of. In fact, the one I had may be the only I ever have. That being said, there were some definite positive qualites to this brew. Firstly, the appearance was nonpariel; I stared and stared at the delicate lacing patterns unfolding on top of the molten, malty mass. The flavor, aside from the obvious emphasis on malt, was very fruity and even a smidgeon floral. The fruit flavors were predominately raspberry and even a little peach, and all was superceded by a mulled character. Just one is fine, but I don't think I could bring myself to buy a six-pack.

This beeer was killed by overcarbonation. Looks pretty with a nice dark coloring that is reminiscent of a brown ale. Smells OK with slight caramel malts sticking out. Tasted nice and full, creamy and sweet malts and just an inkling of likeable wheat characteristics. But during the finish my throat was stung with carbonation. Too bad..cause this is a good product otherwise.

Bright, light copper appearance. Light sweet caramelly malt nose with a touch of fresh light hops. The body is spritzy, notes of sweet fruit and candyish hops. Weizen Bock eh...would never have guessed it.

Nice dark golden brown colour...some spiceyness. A great lingering aftertaste that pairs well with a cold day. A good choice for a ’findable’ seasonal beer!

like a dark burnt amber color with an almost yellow tinted tan line of froth...the aroma was subtly nutty..the flavor was extremely creamy..the mouthfeel thick..notes of candied walnuts & cherries..it actually tastes like winter..sweet yet not too sticky..creamy and full bodied, and some bitterness shines through too..quite impressive

UPDATED: APR 29, 2003 Call me crazy, but I like this way better than Aventinus. Heavier on the bock qualities than the wheat. Good stuff.
