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.

Quite dark in color, aroma is malty, pleasant hints of spice/fruit. Flavor is also pleasant and fairly well balanced, however does not inspire or approach Victory’s effort.

Good beer. Nice spicy aroma, disapponintingly small head though. Nice balance of bitter with the sweet, not much wheat flavor, could use more to my taste. Nice winter brew, one of the best.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2002
One of Sammy’s best beers. Malty, spucey aroma. Sweet without being syruppy, as may beers of this style can be. Well balanced. Must be a very small percentage of wheat, to be nearly impercievable.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - DEC 14, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Re-rate, draught, poured a nice amber color with a thin white head aroma was malty and sweet with nutmeg and hops. Inital taste was good hitting the nutmeg and malt notes from the aroma. Aftertaste was kind of sour/ranicd. Very disappointing

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 (33387) - 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.

freekyp (1838) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2002
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.
