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.

12 oz bottle, aged one year. Poured a slightly unfiltered amber color with a thin cream top. Taste of cinnamon, spice and ginger. Medium carbonation, thin body. Not bad, for a lager

exeter (313) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
Nice brown colour with a respectable light tan head. Faint spicy, clean aroma. Nice, slightly sweet malty taste, with just a hint of spice. Trace alcohol finish. I prefer a bit heavier brew in the winter, but on those occasions when I want something a bit lighter, this will do just fine.

Backlog. Bottle from Systembolaget. This is one of my standard winter-beers, i love it, it’s not overly complex. High drinkability with a nice backbone.
