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.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours mahogany color with small brownish lacing head. Notes of caramel, wood, herbs. Kind of one dimensional. Easy drinkable tho.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2014 Tap at New Bohemia. Smallish pint. Amber hue with some lacing. Aroma has roasted malt characteristics. Taste has malt notes and minimal, but steady hops. A little too similar to the Boston lager. Some caramel. Not one of the good winter beer options.

Samuel Adams Winter Lager is not bad but nothing exceptional. Nice deep reddish color with a foamy white head. Aroma is malty but not very complex. Taste is also malty and a tad sweet. I didnít get any of the spicy notes in the description -- just a deep maltiness. You will see Winter Lager around in the restaurants a lot this season, so it is nothing to necessarily seek out.

Bottle. Overall nice, not the least the colour. Well-balanced, interesting spices but not too prominent. Gentle finish.

Pours a reddish brown with pillowy off white head that lasts and laces. Smells of caramel, cinnamon, and toasted malt. Very smooth with mild lingering hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Tastes of biscuit, sugar, caramel, and cinnamon.

12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford City. Appearance: finger of khaki head, copper color, clear, light lacing, head does not last. Aroma: malty caramel, decent herbal hops, light spice, cinnamon. Palate: light body, average carbonation, light spice finish (not hot), thin texture. Taste: sweet caramel and cinnamon, with herbal and spice hops on the end to bring of a bitterness and winter season feeling. Overall, decent seasonal lager, very nice balance without spice overpowering sweetness.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Dark copper color, off white 2 finger head... leaves some lacing. Smell of toasty malt with caramel and some bread along with spices mainly cinnamon. Taste of sweet malt, caramel, with something almost biscuit like. The spices come through with the cinnamon. Very easy drinking beer thatís perfect for the winter time. Havenít had this in awhile but really did enjoy it, will get more often for sure!

"this beer used to fall strictly into the average beer catergory, but itís grown on me a little. while i wonít go out of my way to get one, itís pleasant, slightly spiced and slighty heavier body is a welcome addition to the fridge during the colder months. to me, itís just a spiced SA Boston, but thatís pretty good. 2010 - this beer has been going a little downhill for me - pretty disinterested now...still ok
