COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

From a bottle. Not bad at all, a decent earthy spice and crisp lager finish, would drink again.

On draft at a steakhouse in Seminole. Dark ruby, clear with a small whitish head. Cinnamon, raisin, spiced tea and horehound in the aroma. Nice sweet taste, at least at first, after which is starts to become a bit cloying. More bitterness in the finish. Citrus and mulled spice in the aftertaste. OK... not quite convinced.

A very smooth, yet tasteful lager. Very wet to the palate, with hints of orange and ginger.

adasko (2107) - Poznan, POLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Clear, copper color. Tiny, very delicate head. Aroma is not super intense, but definitely you can notice the extras. Most clear is orange peel, then a bit of cinnamon and ginger. Its also just a bit malty. Pleasant aroma. Similar case in taste, enjoyable but not really overwhelming. Not strong enough to be real winter warmer, but still spices make a difference. Perfectly carbonated, pretty smooth. Its ok.
