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.

Dark, reddish pour with thin beige foam. Malty nose, with notes of caramel and some spice. Medium body, slightly slick with thin fizz. The spices come out in the taste and as it warms. Nice combination of cinnamon, orange, and ginger. The malts are slightly dominant. Its a good light-bodied variation on a winter beer.

mice (925) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Tummanruskea, osin punertava olut niukalla vaahdolla. Vaahtoa j hyvin pieni kerros oluen reunalle. Tuoksussa on toisaalta makeaa maltaisuutta, mutta mys hedelmisyytt. Maku on hyvin balanssissa. Olut on kermaisen makea, mutta mys sopivan aavistuksen verran katkera jlkimaultaan viimeistellen onnistuneen makuelmyksen. Toimiva tapaus. 13.12.2013: Punertavan kuparinruskea olut kivalla reilun sentin pitsi jttvll vaahtokerroksella. Tuoksu karamellisen maltainen, tumman marjainen sek hieman kermainen. Maku marjaisen mausteinen, hieman karamellisen makea ja aavistuksen katkera ja kuivattava jlkipuoliskoltaan.

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

BreWedge (530) - 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
