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.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 Bottle. Pours copper with small head. Light lacing. Caramel aroma with a bit of spice. Wheat really comes through in the taste. Could maybe use a bit more bitterness.

BeerandBlues2 (11054) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Let me say just what a treat it has been to find a Sam Adams Winter Sampler pack in May and it not be skunky. Dark brown brew with a foamy tan head. Malted wheat and fruit aromas. Bitter and wheat flavor. Full and warming palate.
