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.

This beeer was killed by overcarbonation. Looks pretty with a nice dark coloring that is reminiscent of a brown ale. Smells OK with slight caramel malts sticking out. Tasted nice and full, creamy and sweet malts and just an inkling of likeable wheat characteristics. But during the finish my throat was stung with carbonation. Too bad..cause this is a good product otherwise.

Bright, light copper appearance. Light sweet caramelly malt nose with a touch of fresh light hops. The body is spritzy, notes of sweet fruit and candyish hops. Weizen Bock eh...would never have guessed it.

Nice dark golden brown colour...some spiceyness. A great lingering aftertaste that pairs well with a cold day. A good choice for a findable seasonal beer!

like a dark burnt amber color with an almost yellow tinted tan line of froth...the aroma was subtly nutty..the flavor was extremely creamy..the mouthfeel thick..notes of candied walnuts & cherries..it actually tastes like winter..sweet yet not too sticky..creamy and full bodied, and some bitterness shines through too..quite impressive

UPDATED: APR 29, 2003 Call me crazy, but I like this way better than Aventinus. Heavier on the bock qualities than the wheat. Good stuff.

A middling effort at best...have a Fezziwig instead.

Why do so many people like this beer? I tried one in a bar one day after a few preferred beers, cleansed my palate with some snacks beforehand, and still didnt think much of it. Expensive to boot... Incidentally, are we supposed to think that Sam Adams was some raging alcoholic or the like? Look at the label.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2007 Rerate-12oz bottle at BW2: poured brown with a medium sized beige head. Light spice aroma, maybe a bit of ginger. Mild spice in the taste, again of ginger. Not as malty as I remember. Decent beer even if it has a short somewhat watery finish. Old rating: Decent malt flavor and a little spice coming through. Not bad at an airport. 5-3-6-3-12
