COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Again it always seems like a good idea until I taste it.

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

You can definitely taste the wheat malt in this brew. Itís almost a dunkel weizen with spices, which isnít a bad thing, especially knowing that German Dunkelweizen bock is a considered a Christmas beer.

Wow, I was very suprised by this beer (quite pleasantly). It has a wonderful malt nose to it. Canít wait to attack the other five in my fridge.

This has to be my least fave Sam Adams. Weak, lackluster flavor, bad aftertaste. I picked up on the caramel and slight wheatiness but I didnít find it robust at all.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2009 Deep amber colour. Hoppy aroma. hoppy and spicy (nutmeg) flavour that gets a little sweet and cloying towards the finish. Weizen Bock??

Spicy, somewhat of a bitter aftertaste. Strong, but not as full-bodied as other bocks. Good for a winter brew, though not something for frequent drinking.

Good for Sam Adamís. Similar to the other winter brews. Nice sweet flavor, not overwhelming. Spices are apparent, but cannot figure some of them out..but tastes good.
