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.

CRock (42) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
Purchased from the LCBO. A little disappointed with this beer. Flavour and aroma not up to my expectations of Samuel Adams but still a decent option.

Bule (709) - California, USA - FEB 8, 2014
12oz bottle at Outback. Pours a reddy amber color with a bit of frothy head. Lots of malt, but kind of a harsh spice flavor.

Bottle at home via sheps, cheers john!
not something I would immediately plump for...but I’m open minded. Pours dark chestnut with fluffy beige head. Subdued molasses nose. Full bodied creamy texture, peppery ginger kick at the back of the palate, demerara sugar, surprisingly tasty. Dry malty finish with lingering spice, but subtle. Not OTT

Draft at Hennesy’s San Diego. Red amber colour, and some cinnamon and little clove in the nose. Ok but not mine
