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.

MiP (15305) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2005
Bottle. Very malty flavour. Bright chestnut colour. Aftertaste is quite spicy. Very nice and easily drinkable. A little too much carbonation for me.

12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of Xmas spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). Flavour of Xmas spices as on the nose, buttery malts and bread. Decent, but nothing interesting.

bhensonb (14178) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Aroma of malt, spice and hop?. Deep coppery red color with virtually no head. Starts with lightly spiced malt, continuing with that, finishing with a somewhat flat malt character. Maybe that aroma was not hop. It went really well with milk chocolate coated oat cakes (McVitties).

imdownthepub (13418) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2004
Bottled, pasteurised. Red brown beer with carbonated head. Preferable to the SA Lager if only that there is some flavour coming through. Still another American beer that is too similar to cola, thin sweet short and glutinous, but there is an attempt to get the malted wheat through the mess. Good alcohol though.

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 11, 2002
Clear and deep amber, with minimal head. Very malty aroma and flavor. Mostly caramel, with hints of vanilla. Wheat is detectable, but only nominally.
