Bold and rich, with a touch of holiday spice. The first thing one notices about a Samuel Adamsģ 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.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2003 This has to be the best Samuel Adams beer that I have had. A great hearty, dark brew that can fill you up... Re-rate 3/12/2003: Well I guess it has been a while since I last had this and I had forgot what it tasted like. Anyway let me do this properly... Has a nice red/amber color with little carbonation and a sweet/alcohol smell. Taste is sweet malted and finishes slightly bitter/alcohol. Overall I still like this beer very much, but it is not all I remember it was. And so a slightly lower score...

A nice dark beer for the winter. A nice malty aroma topps a dark but not quite opaque glass with a nice foam. Roasted grain flavor coupled with a smooth and less than thick feeling liquid finish crisply and cleanly. Contrary to all of this, I do tire of these beers quickly. A twelve pack is more than enough to get me through the winter.

I like the Oktoberfest offering from Sam Adams better, but this isnít too bad either. Do I taste nutmeg in there? Nice color, and good cling from the head.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2008 A very decent brew from Mr. Koch and company. A bit fizzy and filling for me but interesting malt in the mouth/hops in the medium-long finish contrast. Seems to be a carefully-crafted flavor.
