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.

A complex aroma of spices, including hints of cinnamon. Beautiful copper/amber appearance with a moderate head and lacing. It has a very full set of flavors, spicy and warming. Very good.

This is one of the better winter beers I've had. Aromas of fruits and nuts; flavorwise, spices are very apparent, but balance out nicely to leave a nice not-too-bitter and crisp finish

This beer totally blew me away! I have drank Sam Adams for many years and don't usually like it when they try changing things up, but this was sensational! An excellent tasting beer that goes down very smooth with a very enriching quality.

Nice foamy tan head on a clear amber reddish body. Nose is weak, I only sense a litte malt. Is is quite flavorfull with notes of roasted malt, nutmeg, pepper and caramel with a nice alcohol bite to the finish. Smooth.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 This has a nice palate with festive spices. It was enjoyable but I probably would not buy it but like maybe once a year if that.

Sam Adams Holiday Sampler case is a wonderful variety! Enjoyable, with a malty tone that accompanies an impressive golden color and smooth finish.

Nice looking beer. Good head and lacing. A decent offering from this "macro micro." Relatively high ABV, especially for a lager, and well hidden.

This hearty beer was burgundy in color and had hints of caramel and vanilla. This beer leaves a warm feeling when finished.

Great beer. Wonderful aroma, great taste with a bit of hops and a good aftertaste. The color is a somewhat dark reddish brown. Overall this is a great tasting beer, always leaving you wanting another,
