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.

Mild smell, caramel color, very clear, thin head lets beer breathe. Lager taste with after off flavor, mild to start then odd.

BreWedge (512) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAR 18, 2016
On tap @ Beaufort Pub Belleville. Pours a clear Amber with a small off-white head. Aromas are sweet malts (biscuit, honey) and a little grain. Tastes are mild biscuit, some spice. Medium body and carbonation, medium grainy finish. Definitely much more character than a typical lager. Not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Dark copper body below a foamy ecru head which holds. Orange rind fore in aroma, a little soapy, or maybe like a holiday candle as the ginger comes out. Flavor is a jolly jumble of cinnamon and ginger with no real distinctiveness as a "beer" outside of a slight caramel sweetness which peeks out from time to time from under a heavy blanket of ho-ho-holiday spices. The lingering memory on the palate is sour, dry and spicy... take a dollop of sour cream, add a squeeze of lemon and maybe a full tablespoon of ground cinnamon for the effect. This is a definite "one and done" and its too bad that they put two of them in my gift pack. ~~~~ From a Sam Adams 12 Pk. of "Winter Classics", received as a gift.

You can feel the spices! A little too much perhaps but this is that kind of beer, happy holidays ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
