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 beer. Not too sweet, a hint of spice and a little alcohol in the background. Nice looking beer. Nice doughy aroma while pouring that changes to a spicy, malty smell after sitting in the glass for a few minutes. Nice looking beer, medium-dark red with a nice beige head. The finish could be better. A good but forgettable beer.

Very surprisingly tasty seasonal beer. Dark caramel color. I would not have imagined it was a Weizen Bock.

I drank alot of this this past winter and with good reason. The beer is finely crafty and keeps you wamr on those cold winter nights. Too bad it's only available once a year.

A light tan to copper in color. Moderate off white to to light tan head. Some lacing down the sides of the glass. No spice aroma is apparent, a very subduded hop aroma present and malt flavored. Moderate carbonation, and very bubbly. Very pleasing to the palate, goes down very smooth, with no bitterness or aftertatste. Overall a very pleasing seasonal beer.

A light mahogany with a thin head that disappears quickly. The aroma is a light woody spice. A heavy spiced nut taste with a malty yeast to bring it out. I cant really say im enjoying this one, the heavy spices seem to come to the forefront and the quality of the malt doesn’t do much to take away from that. Leaves a spicy aftertaste that is more bitter than appealing. Don’t get me wrong its drinkable, its just not particularly enjoyable, compared to the other selections in the holiday box, you can set this one of to the side and wait to offer it to a guest when they come over.

Above average winter offering... extremely palatable and caramelized, but still has the Sam Adam’s taste.

Bottle. Medium-dark amber color beer with a white head, fairly translucent. The smell: yeasty, like fresh bread out of an oven. Mmmmm. Hints of licorice aroma. Strong licorice overtones in the taste, with a sweet, slightly syrupy finish. Overall, wonderfully sweet, flavorful and comforting, like sitting by a warm fire in the winter. My only complaint is, the finish is too sweet and not clean enough.

This is still a good beer, but I miss the 6.95% alcohol that used to be in here..now it seems quite fresh, but lacks the alcohol needed to balance the taste.
