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 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.

a beer that seems to encompass the winter cold but a drink that can warm me up
