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.

A good spiced bock beer deep red in color. A very mild after taste but with full flavor and does not overpower with alcohol notes like other winter seasonals.

KoRoBeNiKi (127) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Bottle from a while ago (obviously) Copper color with a large head with a nice amount of lacing, solid. Sweet malts and light alcohol in aroma along with light chocolate, light fruit, caramel, and maybe baking (cookies?) Flavour is similar with caramel, malts, fruits and a hint of spice. Finish isn’t strong enough at the end but it works quite well for a winter brew. Solid work.

TorbenJensen (497) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
Beautiful beige foam and a lovely caramel flavor with notes of orange peel. Beautiful rich spices characterize the taste and add a little cinnamon, orange peel and a little cilantro. Wheat malt shines a little through and it’s fine for a beer in the winter.

jamesie1857 (1662) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
355ml bottle from B&M Bargains - Clear copper body, with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is up front with metallic notes, followed by faint traces of floral notes, fruit, and caramel. As for taste, it’s mostly caramel, and doughy notes, with some faint sourness, a light floral taste, metallic hops, and a fruity finish. Not bad at all really for 79p!

Martin243 (894) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
5.5% 355 ml bottle from B&M. Didn’t get any of the spiciness, just a ponderous sweet malt heavy flavour. Almost indistinguishable from the S.A. Oktoberfest I had before, to the extent that I thought it might be the same beer with a different label.

BeerViking (3170) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle from B&M Hounslow, nice dark red-brown with a big but fast-settling head. Bready and spicy nose, reminiscent of gingerbread. Body is a little too sweet, but otherwise nicely malty and toasty with a delicate nip of ginger and citrus, and a herbal bitter edge.

Bottle from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. This dark amber beer pours with a thin white head. It has a malty, red fruity and gentle burnt toffee flavour followed by slight grassy and spices on the finish.
