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.

Good beer for a Keweenaw Peninsula winter. A real rough and solid brew.

A very rich beer. Dark and bitter, can do down a little rough at times. Great beer for the winter though, a must have.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2003 Somewhat of a tan head. Smooth and creamy taste. This is good, but it still is very nondescript. I would never turn one down, but there is no compelling reason to buy it with beers like Sierra Nevada Celebration or Pyramid Snow Cap out there.

Indra (2641) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 24, 2000
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2004 Dark wheat lager, nice amount of spices, hops and well-blended maltiness. Much lighter in body and feel than your typical Weizenbock, but creamy and smooth. Drinkable and fairly tasty.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 5, 2000
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2003 2002 version: Seems as though they improved it this year, as there seems to be more going on. Good floral aroma, nothing spectacular though, and a nice sweet malt base nicely balanced by the hops. Excellent winter brew IMHO, and far better than the last 2 years. 2000 version: Am I alone in thinking that this year"s offering is different than last years? I remember it being more full bodied, almost roasty last year. Still good, but different. 1999 version: YUM! Ok, I"m no lager fan, but this came close to tasting like a porter! Malty, caramel characteristics, well balanced hop flavor, and beautiful finish. I can"t wait until winter now to get this again. My favorite lager, hands down.
