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.

The aroma is dominated by cinnamon and ginger. It is amber with a thick light tan head. The taste is dominated with the cinnamon, ginger, and hints of orange as the malt is evident as an afterthought.

edwardbass (530) - Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Dark reddish-brown color. Aroma of roasted malt and spices. Tastes very much like a porter with spices, with a mild bitterness. Kind of okay, but nothing really makes it worth trying again.

Luvystypotables (710) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2013
No aroma, no head, dark amber colour, not much taste with a bitter finish. A disappointing beer.

AWISLguy (1347) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2013
On tap at Duffy’s in Port St Lucie. Pours a reddish brown with no head. Aroma has caramel and light spices, with some berries. Taste follows, heavy caramel malty with a spicy tang. Shrug? Sam mass produces.

On tap at AMC movie theater. Pours a dark copper with fluffy cream colored head that leaves good lace. Aroma of slight spice and lasher yeast, taste follows, clean and crisp. Not bad, and the best they have.

I can’t believe how much of the beer I have drank and never rated it before. Pours copper with white head. Caramel malt with slight cinnamon and nutmeg spice aroma. Caramel malt flavor with some roasted notes. Light cinnamon and nutmeg flavors with some ginger and orange flavors. A balanced hop finish.

Bottle. A sweet smell. A full (medium carbonation) mouth, medium malty sweetness. Ends with the sweet spice. Not overpowering, but definitely there. Would drink 1-2. A good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
