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.

Overall a very good beer. To me, it just seems to be a spicier version of the Boston Lager, with a somewhat dry finish...i think. I knew it was a bad idea to rate these after drinking them all new years eve. But I remember it being a very tasty brew, and one of the better ones that came out of the Winter Classics pack.

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. I’m open, flexible, and young enough, but, hey, I’m not buying this garbage.

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.
