COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold and rich, with a touch of holiday spice. The first thing one notices about a Samuel Adamsģ 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.

Poured from bottle, nice reddish-gold color. Aroma was hard to identify, but caught some cinnamon aroma. Taste is mellow with hints of cinnamon and other mild spices. Good sipping beer.

Pours a dark amber with a small white head. Aroma has hints of licorice. Tastes of roasted marshmellow and mild resiny hops. Overall a little bland, was expecting a little more hops and some more spice.

Bottle. Lots of bready biscuty aromas, some coriander holiday spice on the nose, pretty watery palate. Meh.

Not the greatest Samuel Adams standard. Pretty accessible, if somebody had this at a poorly planned house party, sure, why not. Iím open, flexible, and young enough, but, hey, Iím not buying this garbage.

Part of the holiday pack. Nice brown color with nice thick white head. Taste of malt wheats and different notes of spices. a good beer.

A solid beer by sam adams. Tastes similar to the regular lager by sam adams(which I also like) but with a hint of fruitiness. Not much of a head but a nice bold flavor that matches the aroma.

Delicious smooth and creamy, pours almost like a traditional bitter with a full body and head.

Not a bad beer. It has an amber color and nice white head. Taste is nice and non-offensive. I canít say the taste is a ton different or sets apart from other lagers. There do seem to be more "holiday" spices in their to qualifythe name as a winter lager. But I think you could really drink it any season you wanted.

Why do so many people like this beer? I tried one in a bar one day after a few preferred beers, cleansed my palate with some snacks beforehand, and still didnít think much of it. Expensive to boot... Incidentally, are we supposed to think that Sam Adams was some raging alcoholic or the like? Look at the label.
