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.

imdownthepub (10647) - 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.

Bottle from Tbone_, thanks! Reddish brown color. Caramelly aroma with pineapple. Caramelly sweet flavor with cinnamon. Malty, well balanced, fresh tasting. Only a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Not bad!

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUN 1, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice amber colour with a nice mostly diminishing white head. Quite a malty aroma, hoppy, sweet and bit spiced. The flavour has a good mild roasted maltiness, nice hoppiness with spices, caramel, and some toffee. Sweet maltish and hoppy finish. Great brew!

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2010
It’s hazy, dark red amber and the head is creamy. The aroma has notes of fruit and caramel, and so does the moderately sweet flavour and the finish has some dry notes of citrus. It’s soft, full and quite delicious.
