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.

I like, I like. I receved this beer in six pack form from doing a good samaritan deed for my neighbor. I guess the bottles in the recycle bin are noticeable. Anyways a true spicy smell awaits you as you pour into a glass a small but manageble head appears. I drank the first one from the bottle and didn't enjoy this feature at first. A real nice taste with a spicy taste to go with it. A real good beer from Sam Adams.

Dark copper with tan head (short lasting). Little lacing. Aroma of wheat, with a shade of pepper or mint. Wheaty flavor with some sweetness. Enjoyable, bitter finish is crisp. Good brew, I think Sam Adams' beers are a good value.

guzzler67 (1676) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Copper color with a small head. Sweet malt and caramel aroma. Medum-bodied but still a little thin for a weizenbock. Hints of fruit(figs and plums) and spice(ginger) in the taste. Finish was a little gummy.

Bottled, Cherbourg, Massachusetts. Deep amber coloured beer. Nice conditioning. Malty and strong with a good bitter kick at the finish. Had several of these whilst rigging my good buddy Steve's new Christmas day technology.

This beer has a beautiful red color. Strong taste with a good aftertaste that lingers. Really coats your mouth.

It had a nice, deep reddish brown color with a white headand decent lacing. Smelled of spice. The winter spices were tasted. Great pour good taste. Aroma has some wheat and yeast. Taste is mostly sweet and malty. Good Seasonal.

It poured beautiful in my pint glass. It had a nice, deep color with a white head. Smelled of spice. Tasted flat. The winter spices were all I tasted. I'm gonna pour another homebrew.

You can taste where the extra malt went on this one. Great taste, great pour, love the Sam Adams, and are always a recommendation!

Draught. Reddish brown color. Aroma has some wheat and yeast. Taste is mostly sweet and malty, picked up on a little of that spice, not quite a traditional weizenbock but probably the best of the Sam line.
