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.

yespr (32032) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours orange/amber with an off-white head. Toffee and floral notes in the aroma, sweetish. Caramel malty flavoured with a floral bitter hops bite. Finish has a nice solid bitterness. Doesn’t feel like a wheat beer at all.

Ungstrup (29848) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2002
A very beutiful beer with a dark amber color and a beutiful lasting head. The aroma is very fruity (almost like an ale) and also sweet and spicy. It has a very filling taste with a very complex sweetness - it’s very hard to tell that its been brewed on wheat malt - there are some smoked and caramel notes contained. And it ends on a nice bitterness that lingers. All in all a very fine beer.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Light brown beer with a pretty limited head. Spices are not very prominent. But the nice aroma hops shines through. Sweetish, fullbodied beer with som bitterness on the palate. Good choice as a winter session beer.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2005
Bottled, 5.6%. Copper coloured, huge beige foamy head, lacing. Sweet malts and alcohol in aroma along with cookies and weak chocolate. Flavour is caramel, malts, fruits and spices. Short finish, and almost no aftertaste. Some alcohol in finish, but brutally cut in flavour after that. Nice brew though, could have a few more of these!

Beautiful amber color. Quite good, mainly characterized by the caramel, with a more clear hoppy note in the aroma and a bold final, but a bit too metallic.
