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 bottle of this was my introduction to Bocks. This brew pours a clear bottle conditioned orange with a huge creamy off-white head that is fully lasting with excellent lacing. The spicy fruity nose is mild but extremely pleasant with moderate hints of toasted grain, bread, spruce, soap, pear, and nuts. The well balanced flavor starts with a moderate sweet acidity, and finishes long with a moderate sweet bitterness that is somewhat nutty. The palate is light, clean and smooth; slightly creamy but has a soft carbonation with a metallic finish that is lightly astringent. Another very enjoyable offering from Boston Brewing.

I know some of the fellow beer snobs do not like SA, but I usally do. Some of the beers are just too damn tasty to hate on. This one isnt as spectacular as some other but it’s respectable. Nice wheat malty taste. Kind of earthy finish. Highly drinkable even if its not wonderful.

SA is great, this is a very unique beer the hint of cinnamon really makes it

A little light on aroma, with a bitter aftertaste more prevalent with each sip. Light on the flavor and aroma I associate with other winter brews.

This is a good alteration on the lager. Extra smooth with a great aftertaste. Good stuff.
