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.

ElCapitan22 (211) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Pours a nice color with some nice head retention. Smells malty and of cloves. Tastes similar to the smell. This is sub par at best and would likely pass if offered again.

McWorta (833) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 10, 2015
Dark amber colour with a dark off white short lasting head. Good viscousity. On the nose aromas of malt predominates at first but also some fruity-spice mix appears. Soft texture medium bodied with mainly sweet fruity-malt flavours and a sift hop bitterness. A faint iron note was to be noticed, unfortunately! The finish was medium lasting.

dhatton (134) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Brilliant amber body with two inches of khaki-white head. Malty spice flavor encourages warmness during the winter months.

bbertels (180) - NORWAY - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle. Hints of so-called holiday spices greet the nose at first but the scents are not fully matched when tasted; cinnamon, grass, caramel, some dough. Ok enough as a drink in the bar.

ljthiessen (621) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle. Amber brown colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is delicious fruit, spices and caramel, like a fruitcake; some cinnamon and citrus, some cherries and dark fruits as it warms. Flavour is much the same, with a touch of ginger and molasses, medium bodied and fairly sweet without being cloying. Wow, really glad I picked this up. By far the best beer I’ve ever had with the word Lager in the title.

Pours clear amber with a medium frothy off white head. Aromas of caramel, rye bread, cinnamon, ginger and slight citrus. Taste is caramel, rye bread, citrus, slight herbal notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Bottle. Poured an amber color with a small white head. Little lacing. Dried fruit and cinnamon in the taste. Classic lager aftertaste. Decent beer.
