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.

Poured kind of dark but also see thru. smelled rather pleasant and spice, like winter cooking.Light brown head that did not last. spicey and refreshing. Alittle extra fiz. Bitter hoppy finish. Good.

Bottle. Pours an attractive dark amber with very thick tan head. Smells malty and slightly of bourbon. Taste is nothing too notable. Pretty standard dark lager. The above-average ABV is hardly noticeable. Not warming like they lead you to believe.

Sam Adams is my fall back beer, something to hav when nothing decent is available. So I always like to try the seasonal brews. This poured a dark amber colour with a nice lasting head. The flavour is good, slightly complex with some malt and hops character. It doesnt deviate too much from the standard lager, but it has some spice to set it apart as a decent winter beer.

Pours a deep ruby/amber with a thin white head. Aroma is malty and fairly standard for Sam Adams. The flavor, however, is very interesting. Similar to Sam Adams lager with a dark spiciness that I cant seem to nail down. Its very good, though ... a shame its only available once a year.

Borrrris (110) - LINDENHURST, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Bottle. Winter Classics 12 pack. Maybe its me - but I just didnt like this beer much. The wheat base and an alcohol note came throught, but was muddled with what seemed like too many added flavors that didnt work together. Nice Amber color, though. BUY AGAIN?: Drinkable as part of a sampler pack, otherwise no.

Spicy just how I like my winter brews. Was very surpised by this beer and Im glad I have 5 more to drink throughout the coming winter, if they last that long.

Bottle at Plan B CPH. DK. had heard good things about thise one, bot was a bit dissapointed, not that it was bad, it was good, but not great. the bottle said Winter Lager 5.6%, but I gues its thise one. If not let me know, thanks! Deep amber color with a small head, medium hoppy fruity aroma and light sweet taste, medium body and light bitter dry finish.

Bottle in the winter pack. This one had a nutty/ spicy aroma, and looked great in a lager glass. A little on the sweet side, very malty, enjoyable.

Bottle. This was in the winter celebration pack. Probably the best beer in the pack. I felt like the ghost of christmas past flew out and grabbed me (I hate Dickens).
